Description

Hilly Voodoo & Cowboy Mambo on CD

His Highness the Nigerian high life, King Sunny Ade, sailed into New York in the early 80s, stepped on shore and demanded to hear some hillbilly music. He wanted a personal audience with Hank Williams and was turned down. The walls were bricked up a thousand feet high between country, soul, pop and roll and ears were deaf to the Cowboy Mambo. Barrance Whitfield stepped forth with his celestial horn and those walls come tumbling down. He was the future of Hillbilly Voodoo and now, he's the king of Cowboy Mambo. A voice that reverberates through another batch of Voodoo Mambo brew: Ukelele Ike, Pop Staples, Gram Parsons, The Band, Jimmie Rodgers, Billy Joe Shaver, The Coasters, Stevie Earle, palm wine, guitar players, yodelers, screamers, slide artists, dreamers... Let the radio programmers and boss jocks and politicaslly correct folk erect their walls of Jericho: BArrence is a-coming and he blows a mighty horn.
