Something about a guy in a beard and overalls playing "the blues" that fits all European clichés. This guy is more comfortable in a Paris cafe than in a southern bar. Don't be fooled. His albums are on UK labels and released abroad first. Sort of like playing pro basketball in the Italian league.
Having said that, his music is not all bad. Just a little insincere knowing what I know. But you decide.
Not all the songs are good.

Seasick Steve is great but not all the songs are great on this album the best, in my opinion, is the banjo song. I first heard the song on the movie jonah hex an i had to find who sang it. It makes me think of hard times my family had to go through farming an such. Great song.
The real stuff
I sample a lot of albums, and every once in a while come across one that just reaches out and grabs me. This is one of them. If you like trance blues, you will love this album. Seasick Steve is unique and so completely himself, that I don't think anyone could confuse him for any other performer. Great stuff, get the album and let it just take you along with it. You won't regret it.
No pop or that crappy music on the radio here. Just good ol' fashion blues.
i dig it
and so should anyone who likes real music
I saw last night on Top Gear, Funny man.
This is the SH$T!!!
Every single track is freaking awesome. No matter what genre of music you listen to, YOU GOT TO BUY THIS ALBUM. Best music in years. Makes me want to go and slide the hell out of my guitar :-)
A Must Have for the Dirty Blues Fan
This is my first review, so Steve you are the lucky recipient. This album is tops!!!!! Not many artists can convey their experiences in life the way you do. Vocals are up front and personable, almost numbing. If you're a R.L. Burnside or T-Model fan, then this is right up your alley. Money well spent!!!!!
Love This Guy
Seasick Steve is totally unique; no one out there is doing this kind of stuff. Epic songs, amazing sound from those ramshackle guitars. You've got to buy this.
