Overview

Rides Again...

Malford Milligan has been belting out his own blend of blues, soul, gospel, funk, and rock & roll from his home base of Austin, TX, for many years, working and recording with a lengthy roster of talent that includes Storyville, Double Trouble, the Boneshakers, Eric Johnson, Sue Foley, and Marcia Ball. Milligan, whose influences range from Joni Mitchell to Al Green and Stevie Wonder, didn't begin releasing albums under his own name until well after he had passed the age of 40. His rendition of Blind Willie Johnson's "Dark Was the Night" set the tone for the album The Gospel According to Austin, Vol. 2 in 2001. Sweet Cherry Soul appeared in 2002 on Stagger Lee Records, No Good Deed Goes Unpunished came out on the Austin to Boston label in 2004, and Rides Again... was released by Mass Appeal in 2006. Rides Again... might just be his best piece of work to date, as maturity gives Malford a leonine quality that works wonders and is bound to make him even more exciting and unique with the passage of time. Stoked with original tunes and new renditions of favorites by Muddy Waters, Otis Redding, Freddie King and Merle Haggard (as well as a cover of "Drive" by the Cars that brings to mind the passion of Eric Burdon), this album of contemporary Texas-styled entertainments illustrates just how perfectly all of the inspirations meet and combine in the king-sized heart of this joyously driven individual.
