Sonny Landreth - Levee Town (2001) Retail CD
The Mississippi-born slide guitar specialist spent most of his childhood across the way in Louisiana, soaking up the Cajun and zydeco influences that have always been present in his recordings. Landreth's career ignited in the late 1970s, as sideman to Clifton Chenier, followed by a stint with Michael Doucet's Beausoleil. The latter fiddler appears as one of this album's host of guest players, which also includes another old employer, John Hiatt, as well as the omnipresent Bonnie Raitt. As expected, it's Landreth's sliding flash that presides over the self-penned tunes, his burning, skidding tootlesmore… and hot yowling licks repeatedly lifting each track into the red. Landreth's song writing often tends towards nondescript rock, but his narrative lyrics have substance, crying out for some harder melodic content. Joe Mouton's accordion and frottoir (rubboard) add authentic spice to "The U.S.S. Zydecoldsmobile", while "Broken-Hearted Road" travels from sparse slugging to smoking frenzy. Axe fiends can rejoice in the instrumental "Spider-Gris" and "Z. Rider", then the closing "Angeline" and "Deep South" bring on a soul horn section, adding yet another flavour to this Southern stew. --Martin Longley
