‘Blues In Mono’ is being released in two physical formats in response to overwhelming demand from fans for a physical version (having been previously released as a digital only album). SHOP NOW
As a surprise for his fans in November 2020, Seasick Steve released a brand new digital only release entitled “Blues in Mono”, the album cover tells you exactly what to expect from the album. Just one man, his voice, his acoustic guitar and one microphone.
“Blues in Mono” is a timeless tribute to traditional, acoustic country blues recorded with a microphone from the 1940s, with Seasick Steve performing the songs solo, direct to an old tape machine. This was then cut direct to lacquers with no computer involved at all during the process. The old skool way of making a record.
“Blues in Mono” finds Seasick Steve giving some of his finest performances to deliver a fresh, stripped down blues album that offers the perfect antidote for the troubled times in which we live. Steve has curated a selection of songs to cover, from his favourite artists such as Willie Dixon, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Charlie Patton and Mississippi Fred McDowell. The album also features 4 new Seasick Steve tracks including fan favourite “Well, Well, Well”.
The formats of the album are:
1 X LP on limited edition black vinyl (available at Steve’s November tour dates and exclusively as a pre-order in Steve’s store).
1 X LP on limited edition blue vinyl version (available in record stores only), but with a limited quantity available in Steve’s store to pre-order from today.
1 X CD, in a 4 panel, gatefold digipak.
“It’s just me and an acoustic guitar, playing old country blues. I always wanted to do it but never felt worthy, but then I realised that I better hurry up and do it ‘cos I ain’t never gonna feel worthy!” says Steve. “I tried to make it so that if you was listening you’d think I was sitting with you in your house.”
