Cut live at the House of Tone studio with John’s working group, the Real Deal Blues Band (Steve Bell, Lenny Media, and Ronnie Hicks, with guests Charlie Kimble on sax, Chuck-a-Luck on electric bass and the great Billy Flynn on guitar), many of these tracks groove harder than the originals, without sacrificing any emotional resonance. And Soul gives John a fresh palette with which to demonstrate yet again how underrated he is as a vocalist, with powerful, nuanced singing. He and his chief instrumental foil, harp man Steve Bell, play with rare inventiveness and melodicism. With serious soul and Chicago blues power, from the driving, churchy “Meet Me in the Morning” through the gorgeous reading of “Rainy Night in Georgia” to the funky take on “Still Called the Blues” that closes the program, Soul of a Bluesman finds John Primer at his absolute best.
