Blues superstar Eric Bibb's latest project, Blues People, is more than just a sensational album. It's a brilliant tribute to the great Dr. Martin Luther King and a historical document of Black History. This Stony Plain Records release chronicles the struggles of race relations throughout the years.
Eric mobilizes a who's who of the current blues community for this marvelous musical manifesto. Hamilton Blues Legend Harrison Kennedy teams up with him and Ruthie Foster for the funky, soulful Dream Catchers. The song is inspiring, powerful and uplifting.
The rest of the guest list is equally impressive: Taj Mahal, Blind Boys of Alabama, Popa Chubby, Guy Davis, JJ Milteau, Glenn Scott, Linda Tillery, Andre De Lange, and Leyla McCalla.
Packed with some of the best acoustic folk blues, moving soul and incredible world music around, the album is a wondrous musical feast. You can tell all those involved wanted the message to be heard.
You can buy this stirring recording at many physical or Internet stores. It can be purchased through Eric's online shop or downloaded using iTunes.
