On this recording Paul Filipowicz and the music are one, original, just the facts, from the soul of a true blues man. You have a sample of Paul's feeling for the blues . A peak through the doorway of his live sweat drenched emotionally charged guitar workouts. He always lets it all out.
"This session was a powerful experience. These people feel the music exactly like I do. It's incredible to work under such conditions. We got 199 (#7, 199 Lonely Tear Drops) in one take. I just cranked it up and they grabbed on an away we went, talk about a gas! That's the stuff that life is all about."
"Jackson Transfer" (#1), opens the disc with an intimidating finger picked groove, Paul never uses a pick, reminiscent of the Mississippi Hill Country master R.L. Burnside or a heavier Delta, T-Model Ford. "Comparisons are great but it's my take on it. The groove came to me and the story, you get the picture."
"Chinatown" (#2) its that feeling Thing again, West Side Chicago?
"Ken Sadayak on piano, he's the best, he lays it right in there."
"This isn't supposed to be a tribute album or a return to the roots recording. This is just the way we play, straight from the shoulder. I guess my age is catching up to me."
Chicago, Memphis, Delta and Texas it's all here. A personal take, a slice of reality Paul Filipowicz' feeling that is the Blues
