Big Jack Johnson & The Oilers - Roots Stew (CD)
Roots Stew by Delta Mississippi blues sensation Big Jack Johnson's his third release for M.C. Records and showcases Big Jack's expansive view of the blues. On Roots Stew Big Jack not only tears up the blues, he also gives his devoted fans a taste of Rockabilly and Country. These are not experiments for Big Jack Johnson; he has played with Carl Perkins and Tammy Wynette so his roots are true. Roots Stew also features Big Jack playing mandolin for the first time on a recording.
He's a bonafide Mississippi bluesman whose voice is as gripping as his guitar lines. - Jon Pareles, N.Y. Times
