FCC: All good.

Info: Amazon: ”Raucous, rowdy, gentle, sweet, eccentric, quirky, and outright irreverent are all words that fittingly describe Tas Cru’s songs and testify to his reputation as one of the most unique bluesmen plying his trade today…. As Downbeat magazine notes, His songs are blues poetry crafted with rare verbal flair, and his ability to cast a memorable hook is magical… eleven songs flavored in most part by resonator, cigar box and acoustic guitar. The album features harmonica, honky-tonk piano, Hammond B3 organ and rich backing vocals.”    Samples/preview:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8xIL0xLUgo
