Roland Van Campenhout: Dah Blues Iz-a Comming... Plus (2-LP & 10inch Vinyl & Poster)
In this luxury edition Meyer Records has packed together the two albums 'Dah blues iz-a-comming ...' and 'Just Another Place In The Universe' plus the 12" (25cm) LP 'Frankie & Johnny'. The LPs come with printed inner sleeves, and as an extra bonus a poster on top.The recording and mastering quality meets even the highest audiophile demands. With this special edition, Meyer Records honors the work of an absolute original, a great storyteller and blues musician who - coming from Belgium - is at home all over the world and whose most original blues speaks a global language.
You don't have to know the guy, you don't have to know where he comes from or with whom he has played, what he looks like, whether he is a legend or a blank sheet of paper - what you hear immediately is that he has the blues. And that is something like that!But a glance at the album covers makes the picture perfect: Only someone who has lived a life away from convention for decades has such a mug: a Berber, a tramp, a traveling musician. And Roland Van Campenhout is just such a person. The Belgian has been releasing records and touring the world since 1967.
Roland Van Campenhout is a living legend, archetype for an almost extinct species of artist - that of the sound magician, deeply rooted in blues and folk, yet open to pretty much all genres, whether they are called ethno, jazz or psychedelic.
As a teenager - inspired by author Jack Kerouac's beatnik classic ''On The Road'' as his philosophy of life - he was part of a skiffle combo. From the end of the 1960s, the man with the Catweazle beard turned increasingly to the blues, played for a while in Rory Gallagher's band, and from 2000 onwards there were collaborations with the much younger Belgian crossover artists such as Sioen.
''In the seventies the bard with the long grey beard toured the globe with Rory Gallagher. That will never have been a quiet time. The man in his mid-sixties already look slightly weather-beaten. This is probably work wear for the real and original blues musician - just as the smoky, rough voice is his instrument. ... The struck and torn steel strings of his acoustic guitar rattle rough. But in ... concert, which was also recorded for an album, he makes 80 percent sound on stage - accompanied by the blues harp and bass instrument. With Steven De Bruyn, Campenhout has brought a bluesman of the new generation on board ... In De Bruyn's virtuoso treatment, the harmonica grows into an emotionally relentlessly revealing dialogue partner. ... Pascale Michiels plucked the harmonica on coarse, low-sounding four-strings, bought in China. So it was a very puristic evening very close to the artists, a one-man show of the legend Campenhout, embellished by the blues harp.''
Olaf Weiden, Kölnische Rundschau
''Belgium's bluest export.''
Olaf Weiden, Kölnische Rundschau
''The Belgian has fused his own blues style, enriched with elements of folk, world music and jazzy details, into a musical emulsion that has no comparison even in the multi-faceted blues cosmos.''
Stereo, August 2019
''Unlike many a pseudo-bluesman, this man is as real as he can be! This starts with the fact that he doesn't turn his often astonishingly young sounding voice into an artificial tube and doesn't end with the fact that he "lets his guitar play" - often you get the feeling that he simply lives the musical moment and is curious himself where and how things will continue now.''

Roland Van Campenhout
Roland Van Campenhout ist eine lebende Legende, Archetypus für eine fast ausgestorbene Sorte von Künstlern - der des Sound-Magiers, fest im Blues und Folk verwurzelt, gleichzeitig offen für ziemlich alle Genres, ob die nun Ethno, Jazz oder Psychedelic genannt werden. Als Jugendlicher - von Autor Jack Kerouacs Beatnik-Klassiker ‘‘On The Road‘‘ als Lebensphilosophie inspiriert - gehörte er einer Skiffle-Combo an. Ab Ende der 1960er wandte der Mann mit dem Catweazle-Bart sich verstärkt dem Blues zu, spielte eine Zeit lang in der Band von Rory Gallagher, ab 2000 gab es Kooperationen mit den wesentlich jüngeren belgischen Crossover-Interpreten wie zum Beispiel Sioen.
