Product Description

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 collaboration was sparked after the two met while recording the 2010 album Scent of Reunion: Love Duets Across Civilizations that featured Mighty Sam McClain with Iranian singer Mahsa Vahdat

__________

“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

  1. Fantastic collaboration featuring one of America's Most Soulful Voices Review by Ted Drozdowski

    At an age when most artists have stopped growing for decades, Mighty Sam McClain, in this collaboration with Norwegian visionary producer Knut Reiersrud, reasserts his creatively, his ability to search for deep meaning in the idiomatically rooted worlds of blues, soul and gospel which so many others have relegated to the past. This album, drawing on country, textural, funk and world music as well for its sonic roots, continues McClain's very public search for enlightenment through creative expression. His stories are soulful and direct, his message of love and hope inspiring, and his voice - always the centerpiece of the free ranging and exceptionally crafted arrangements — is shaded with all aspects of human experience: a warm, deep instrument that effortlessly reaches the heart with its gorgeous red clay timbre. YES, I LOVE THIS ALBUM! (Posted on 9/21/11)
