Sonny Landreth - Recorded Live In Lafayette album review

The best Blues you can get this month

Cover art for Sonny Landreth - Recorded Live In Lafayette album

If Sonny Landreth wasn’t so humble, you’d say this live album was an act of pure showboatery, the slide wizard splitting the set into halves (acoustic/electric) and knocking each out of the park. The chops we know about, but the career-spanning material reminds you of Landreth’s craft – try Hell At Home and the haunted True Blue.
