Painting Signs

Earthbeat!

If you’re looking for a thick, New Orleans style blues without the woe-as-me attitude, then the Joe Cocker sounding Eric Bibb will do the trick like a serving of rice n’ beans. His newest venture, Painting Signs, features a cover of Jimi Hendrix’s “Angel” and a collaboration with the legendary Wilson Pickett on “Don’t Ever Let Nobody Drag Your Spirit Down.” Jimmy Reed and Ewart Abner join him for “Honest I Do,” and Reverend Gary Davis chimes in on “I Heard the Angels Singing.” Eric Bibb proves that after three albums, he still plays as good as — if not better than — before. For the hot days of the dwindling summer, cool off with Painting Signs and remember what it’s like to actually hear music with a heart and soul.
