The long running Backtrack Blues Band has spent decades refining its blues chops, performing with scores of blues masters. Their seventh album, YOUR BABY HAS LEFT, captures Backtrack’s unique blend of muscular harp and vocals and tasty Texas inspired lead guitar, with stellar accents by Bruce Katz’s keys and The Muscle Shoals Horns. From the first track, you can tell that this is a real deal blues album made by seasoned blues journeymen. The first single, “Best Friends Grave,” is a solidly swinging band track, kicking off with a guitar lead supported by harmonica and lush organ swells. Singer Sonny Charles tells the story of his best friend’s gravesite service turning into a joyous celebration of life, as background vocals lend a strong gospel feel.
