Our "Man on the Street", Lio, selects one of his favourite albums of the moment...this week it is:
THE LIL' BAND O' GOLD - The Promised Land
"Some good friends of mine gave me the heads up on this 9-piece Cajun Swamp pop group before we released this album and I'm mighty glad they did! The Promised Land is the soundtrack to the documentary (that hopefully gets a DVD release here) The Promised Land: A Swamp Pop Journey. It's heartfelt music from down Louisiana way, and is best enjoyed with some cold beers and good company. A quote from the doco sums the sound up for me nicely - "White guys, playing Black music, damn good"."
