TEXAS MAN

BUY  / DOWNLOAD
Mike Morgan's latest CD vision is indeed a Lone Star Spanker with a special guarantee of pleasure for the faithful among us who prefer our sounds to be drenched in Blue. Besides snatching tunes out of their wide open spaces, Texas Bluesmen have always had the foresight of digging, listening to and browsing music from other locales and seamlessly blending it into their own musical gumbo. Whether listening to Mike's Louisiana tinged "Whoa My Darlin'" or his soulful rendition of "Five Thousand Miles From Home" you can tell he's a stone cold travelin' man. Slide guitar aficionados will appreciate Mike's send ups of some Chicago staples showing he can indeed hold his own in the Elmore James, Hound Dog Taylor sweepstakes.

This time round Mike's vocals are on display front and center; he's got the chops. Check out his swagger on "Texas Man" or how Mike's melody drives it home on my favorite track "I'm Gonna Love You".

Around the start of the Millennium I started praying to the lord to please send me a CD I could heartily enjoy. Well here it is. Thanks Mike !!
