Ellis – Speak No Evil
Alligator, Oct 2009
Wow!!! I’ve been following
Tinsley for years, this CD is his best yet. His
vocals and songwriting are getting better with age.
I’ve now listened to this CD nine times –
there’s not a bad song on it. I love it!
This 52-year-old Atlanta
bluesman delivers a masterful release, Speak No
Evil features 12 hard hitting, guitar soaked blues
that will be pleasing for new and old fans.
fierce, fanciful fretwork get’s up in your
face and delivers a tasty bite. Combining that with
Ellis’ gravelly vocals makes for a perfect
combination of southern fried blues-rock. Everyone
of y’all should buy two, keep one and give
the other to a blues lovin’ buddy for Christmas.
This easily get’s the highly coveted 5.0 outta
5.0 on the ol’ STLBluesometer! Official site
