Randall Bramblett: Devil Music (LP Vinyl 180g, Litd)
(2015/New West) 9 tracks.
Randall Bramblett's distinguished body of work is defined by a triple threat career as an acclaimed solo artist, an in-demand songwriter and a first call sideman. In his is latest New West release, the dark, Southern, soul-drenched Devil Music, is his sixth for the label and the tenth of his career. Like his others, it features compelling, unusually arranged melodies coupled with thoughtful, deftly worded lyrics. The new recording features guitarist Derek Trucks whose dirtied-up slide counterpoints Bramblett's falsetto in 'Angel Child' and keyboardist and fellow Sea Level alum, Chuck Leavell, who adds serious boogie to the witty 'Reptile Pilot' The guitar master, Mark Knopfler also makes a guest appearance and adds significantly on 'Dead in the Water'.
