CD: Rooted In The Blues - 2016SKU: DFGCD 8791
With this collection of 13 original old school blues cuts, #1 Belgian blues artist Guy Verlinde goes back to the roots. He not only digs deep in the past of the rich blues tradition but also shares his own blues roots.
Some of these songs date back to the time when he played with his first bands while others are still on the playlist of The Mighty Gators today. But for some reason or another, they didn’t make it onto his previous albums. There are even some new songs he just kept to himself, until now … and all blues lovers can be happy they all finally got the recording they deserve, recorded in perfect studio conditions. For this album Guy collaborates with the finest blues musicians Belgium & The Netherlands have to offer
