Preachin' the Blues

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Ben Andrews, a talented guitarist and singer who performed in the North Carolina-Virginia-Maryland area, emerged in 1990 to make this superior set. Teamed in a trio with Mark Wenner on harmonica and bassist Jeff Sarli, Andrews performs vintage country blues by the likes of Robert Johnson, Blind Willie McTell, Leadbelly, Blind Blake, Mississippi John Hurt, and others, contributing two songs of his own ("Freight Train Boogie" and "She Don't Do Me Wrong"). Andrews captures the magic of the early era without merely copying the past, creating a set that fans of early country blues will definitely want to acquire.
