You Can’t Teach An Old Dog New Tricks – Seasick Steve

Currently my third favourite Seasick Steve album, but that is ever changing. Here is my key to getting into and liking Steve. Either go and see him live, which is the preferred option, failing that put this album on very loud, when you are preferably alone, and dance around the house doing 3 string air guitar. I guarantee, from experience, that both options will work.
I just love the track Don’t Know Why She Love Me But She Do, sometimes the adage, less is more, really does make sense, who needs a full drum kit anyway.
I think it is odd that Seasick Steve is so popular, a 72 year old guy playing home-made instruments. In the land of Britain’s Got X-factor, his popularity gives me hope.
Standout track; Treasures
Hidden gem; Underneath a Blue and Cloudless Sky

  1. If you like Seasick Steve I would recommend you have a listen to Bob Log III (manic slide guitar blues with some petrifyingly loud amps) and Hasil Adkins (fifties rockabilly freak-show).
