© 2012 Copyright Parsifal - Blue Sting 049
We all know Lightnin’ Guy as someone who likes to play it loud with his “Mighty Gators” or “Houserockers”. This album shows you his other face as he only plays on acoustic resonator & Weissenborn guitars, harps & his old suitcase as a kick drum.
This album is, as Lightnin’ Guy puts it: “a sacrifice for everything that already came my way & for all what’s yet to come. These songs are not only my Blood For Kali: the Hindu godmother, ruler of time, killer of demons, liberator of the ego, … But I also offer these songs to my fans; as they can only exist by the grace of people listenin’ to them. “
After 5 years hard workin’, Lightnin‘ Guy now is the pride of Belgian blues. Although it may sound like a dusty cliché, he is by far “the hardest working performer” in the Belgian blues scene. Now, also the European blues scene has discovered and embraced Lightnin’ Guy. His authentic and soulful slide guitar & harp styles bring high energy to every Lightnin’ Guy show. After the CD release of his album “Inhale My World” earlier this year; this vinyl release is the cherry on top of an already extraordinary year.
