'a long way home' - the all acoustic CD

a long way home
the all acoustic CD

Putting down his Stratocaster, Lightning Red records a 14-song, all-acoustic album. Imagine this Texas bluesman on his back porch on a sultry summer night...with a few tunes straight from the Chicago juke joints, and some good ol' country pickin' thrown in for good measure.

Lightning Red's smoky slide blues come well-seasoned by his lengthy tenure as a guitarist and harp player ...spotlights his lo-fi Chicago- and Delta-influenced blues compositions with matchless acoustic style, and nods to Willie Dixon and Jimmy Reed.       - Austin Chronicle, 2006
