All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
It's slightly ironic that one of the most compelling tracks on a colorful, down-home Americana roots collection is a song that talks about the search for such roots. Not only that, but "I Am Just a Refugee"'s plaintive lyrics are backed by a rolling, South African-flavored guitar line reminiscent of Paul Simon's "Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes." Elsewhere, the old soul in a 22-year-old body is content to plug in on the porch or just go acoustic and apply his tender voice to rueful songs like "Sad Lament" and contemplations along the lines of "Northern Lights."

Many of his lyrics make for fine social commentary, as the best folk music does. "Streets of Juarez" does this with a cool Latin lilt. It's easy to spot Bucaro's Delta blues influences like Blind Willie Johnson and Robert Johnson, and he has developed a unique vocal/performance style that blends Billie Holiday, Van Morrison, and Otis Redding. Nothing from the Southern blues realm can be complete without a touch of gospel, and his knee-slapping a cappella twist on "John the Revelator" caps a memorable set.

    Groundbreaking Blues album!!

    This album by Clarence Bucaro is absolutely great. He writes songs extremely tender and yet, they keep your interest the entire time. I expect to see this album hit big in blues circles, it is about time people start adding creative styles to the blues genre!
