The Black Sorrows - Endless Love, album review

Stunning Worth

There are two albums to be had here, Chapters 46 and 47, from Australian band The Black Sorrows that is essentially - apparently - John Camilleri.

It is a mixed bag in many respects [beyond the eclecticism], but there are a number of absolutely standout tracks: the soulblues of Hard Time Killing Floor; the gospel blues of God Don't Like It; a beautifully measured version of I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry; the latenight sax-sozzled Lonnie's Lament; an evenlaternighttime blues 61 Highway; the James Borwn-esque/Prince funk of Let Me Kiss You, and a stunning version of That's Pretty Good Love sung by Vika Bull.

These alone are worth the listen.
