THE BEST OF MAPLESHADE VOL. 2:
13 Shades Of Blue
A top-drawer tour of the musical worlds touched by the blues, hand-picked from the riches of the Mapleshade archive. We go from hard-hitting Delta acoustic blues all the way to swing, '60s soul, Motown R&B, West Texas country and British acoustic rock. And the sound is Mapleshade's best: the pure, percussive ring of a hard-strummed National Steel guitar; the reedy rasp of a filthy-toned, battle-scarred tenor sax; the fat, up-through-the floor sock of a slapped bass string-all of them firmly planted around you, only an arm's length away.
