By 'Cornbread'

This is a pretty good example of St. Louis Blues served up Soulard style. Patti Thomas, a former emergency room nurse, digs deep and sings the blues. I thought the harmonica part was good and down-home bluesy. The CD is upbeat, check it out. Also, check out Patti & the Hitmen, they play around St. Louis frequently and are a part of the Big Muddy Festival. Of the 7 track disc, song 4 was my favorite. #1 was pretty good song with good guitar work. I liked the long instrumental intro on the first couple of songs before vocals were added.
