Earl King & Roomful of Blues - Glazed
Roomful of Blues
Glazed: Released 1988. Earl King was one of New Orleans finest singer - guitarist - songwriters and from the piano riff introducing the first track, this album is a winner. Ranging from the raw power of "It All Went Down The Drain" to the quirky humour of "Iron Cupid" (Earls take on computer dating) via a traditional Mardi Gras street song, there isn't a bad track on it. Roomful of Blues imparts a delicious Louisiana roll to everything they do without ever losing the pocket. Earls singing and playing is as fine as ever.
