Sugarcane Collins – Downunder The Blues (2013)

Posted by Zorn on July 2, 2013as

SUFrom the far north of Australia but with his musical roots embedded in the deep south of the USA, Sugarcane Collins is a one of a kind singer-songwriter-guitarist.Inspired by the slashing delta blues of Charley Patton and Son House, the sparkling ragtime of Blind Blake and the powerful songster traditions of Leadbelly, Sugarcane sings passionately with a voice that is big and soulful, writes songs that are potent and rich with imagery and he spanks the guitar like no one else around. He started his career in the rough canefield pubs and dangerous waterfront bars of Cairns’ famed and feared but now gone Barbary Coast and his 30 year career in far north Queensland is the stuff of local legend.

    Salut,

    Déjà merci d’alimenter ce blog, super travail !

    Est-il possible de remettre en ligne cet album svp ?

    J’ai un excellent souvenir de Downunder the blues que j’ai écouté à sa sortie, et j’ai cherché partout à le retrouver.
    Hélas tous les liens sont morts, le web entier semble avoir oublié cet artiste.

    Just noticed the comment an tracked back to the post. I would love to see it reposted if it is still available. And anything else you have of his, as I spent a lot of time in the area many years ago.

    thanks in hoping.
