Going Back Home - CD/MP3
The 1998 album from blues guitarist Sherman Robertson
Availability: In stock.
"Looking for Robertson represented on a studio CD that matches the intensity of his live performances? Producer Joe Harley has done it. Harley lets Robertson rip loose, mixing his zydeco roots with his growing years breathing Texas fire. Joining him on the cattle drive are Little Feat's Richie Hayward and Bill Payne, Bob Glaub (John Fogerty), and fellow Texan Joe Sublett of the Texacali horns."
- Char Ham (All Music Guide)
"Great songs, great delivery. Sherman's got his own voice."
- Blues Access
"...solid covers and originals that are as deep-of-groove as they are soulful."
- Dirty Linen (04/01/1999)
"...a straightforward electric blues album that's got it all....Robertson deserves to have his name added to the short list of the finest musicians who play...in the intense tradition of Texas guitar slingers."
- Living Blues (01/01/1999)
Houston native Sherman Robertson's star has been steadily rising since his days with Clifton Chenier. After appearing on Paul Simon's "Graceland" album, Sherman followed with two heralded albums of his own for Atlantic in 1994 and 1996.
Going Back Home is Sherman's long-anticipated debut for AudioQuest Music. Sherman plays his Texas tail off with a superb backing band featuring Bill Payne and Richie Hayward from Little Feat. On bass (courtesy of John Fogerty) is Bob Glaub. And from the Texacali Horns, Joe Sublett adds his potent tenor sax.
With Going Back Home, the incredible energy of Sherman's live shows has finally been captured in the studio. This is the album Sherman's fans have been waiting for!
