Put Knut Reiersrud and American blues and soul legend Mighty Sam McClain together and what do you get? You get a combination of top artists from two chapters of the history of blues and soul music. The one chapter is about a singer who has "lived the blues" from the day he ran away from his Louisiana home at the tender age of 13 and has been on the road ever since. The second chapter is the story of how blues music has reached several generations in Europe through R&B and rocks, creating a truly unique playing style among countless guitar players, each of whom have sought the musical roots of their idols. One of the foremost of these in our time is Knut Reiersrud.
“This time it is ‘Norwegian’ blues that meets American soul, country soul and funk, as presented by two stars from different parts of the world. ‘One Drop Is Plenty’ has all the makings of a modern soul classic.”
- Øyvind Rønning, Dagbladet
“Perhaps this is why it works so well when north meets south - blues is blues whether you are praising God or woman, faith or doubt. ...it is almost like you are listening to Ry Cooder, or Eric Clapton - naked, unmasked and apparently easy for any trained guitar player. But impossible to copy or cheat.”
- Ketil Johnsen, Bergens Tidend
