The title of Shy Blakeman album, Southern Roots Revival, is very well chosen, because we get here a music with American Southern roots, especially from the country, and at the roots of Country Rock on songs such as ‘Shine’. And we can also find a touch of Southern Rock on the good ‘Sweet Southern Woman’, ‘Southland Saturday Night’, ‘Getting By’, some Boogie Rock in ‘Going Back to Texas’, and Folk-Rock on Bob Dylan’s cover ‘Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door’ played in a laid-back way. Here’s a country album for waiting for spring.
