Alexander, Linsey / Two Cats -CD *Delmark 851
A review of Linsey Alexander’s previous album Come Back Baby (Delmark 838) in Living Blues magazine called it “a can’t-miss release for any lover of no-nonsense Chicago blues”. The “Hoochie Man” is back with all original material including the new smash Two Cats! “My woman got two cats, one in the front, the other in the back!” From the searing “Where Did You Take Your Clothes Off Last Night” to the tender “Til I Kissed You”, from the comedic “Facebook Woman” to the political “Comb Over Blues” Linsey weaves his colorful stories throughout this album of blues, soul, R&B and funk. It’s great fun and serious music at the same time. `Cause the blues don’t mess around and neither does Linsey.
