Robert Bradley's Blackwater Surprise
New Ground (Vanguard Records)

By: Alex Steininger

Robert Bradley's Blackwater Surprise is a rootsy, soulful blues-inspired pop record crafted by a cast of some of the best musicians. From stellar guitar playing to piano playing that will melt away the harshest or critics, through the unbeatable rhythm section, Robert Bradley's Blackwater Surprise is a sure win. However, it is Bradley's voice that makes the band work, a cross between a Stax soul singer and a man that understands roots music to the deepest part of his soul. Here are timeless, precious roots songs that will blow any other roots songs out of the water. I'll give this an A.
