Quintus McCormick Blues Band – Put It On Me!
Delmark DE 815 (2011)
The reviews of Quintus’ first CD, Hey Jodie! (Delmark 801), were stunning: “…best studio debut of 2009 and one of the best soul-blues albums of the past decade.” –Blues Revue; “McCormick possesses a rich, soulful voice and an incredible versatility on guitar. At one moment he’s laying down an edgy blues-rock intro, and the next he’s shifting into funk mode with confidence and swagger.” – Living Blues With such a great debut CD, one might wonder if his second Delmark CD could be as good…and it is! Fourteen new original compositions include “You Just Using Me”, “I Got It Babe”, “Say Lover”, “How Quickly We Forget”, “Don’t Know What To Do”, “Same Old Feeling”, “Change”, “The Blues Has Been Good To Me”, “Sadie”, “Lady Blue”, and “I Got It Bad”.
