Tinsley Ellis – Speak No EvilTinsley 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.

The 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!
