Slide Guitars vs. Slide Whistles? Both, together? I wish.
Bob Brozman’s light-fair blues album Devil’s Slide (1988) could only be made better by the latter and is a perfect demonstration of the former. The album also magnifies the prohibition-model muted horns and maestro man-call music. So that’s interesting. But the blues instrumentals are the true allure on this album.
…and while I haven’t checked these facts, I imagine The Squirrel Nut Zippers may have borrowed some or more of his styles and songs. Have a look and let me know.
