“This is a thing of beauty. Bjorn Eriksson (gtrs, vcs) and Nathalie Delcroix (vcs) rank among Belgium’s finest artists. They can always be found in Americanaland, but in this particular instance they’ve immersed themselves chin-deep in  Louisiana – tunes, lyrics, additional sound effects, instruments, and a double helping of Cajun French to complete the picture. ‘Riverside Hotel’ is the couple’s fifth album in as many years, with seven new compositions and three full-blooded Cajun traditionals. The disc kicks off with the up-tempo ‘Louisiana Hot’, with Nathalie Delcroix’s high, crystal-clear voice being sustained by a pounding rhythm section which is in complete harmony with the accordion and sharp guitar chops. It ends with chirping crickets, allowing the listener to visualize Louisiana and the swampy, hot location of the Riverside Hotel. Similar local sounds are spread all over the record. There is something compelling, repetitive about this track – akin to the Mississippi blues buzz drone. This discrete thread holds everything together and eventually defines the pattern, in this case an almost haunting atmosphere – as in ‘Elizi, Ursule, Erzulie-Ge-Rouge’.  Still, this is a happy, at times funny album you can sing along with or dance to.
It is remarkable how all the instruments (the duo chartered an extra six top musicians!) are interwoven on each track, whether authentic Cajun (‘La Dance de Mardi Gras’) or rockin’ blues (‘Flat Earth Blues’), resulting into a homogeneous sound. Equally remarkable is that Ericksson wrote the lyrics after a trip to the Deep South with this drummer Alain Rylant.
A truly authentic and professional piece of work”.

“The Sixties was recognized as a decade of transition from the conservative Fifties and also the birth of revolutionary ways to live and create. In the entertainment industry, many changes happened in the world of dance. The Sixties was all about learning the newest dance craze and performing them on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand. Dancing, was a driving force that brought people together in peace and happiness, and continues to be influential across the world today. Looking back, there were so many great dance crazes from the Sixties that a few of our favorites have been somewhat lost to history. So the Dusty Old Thing website decided to compile them all in one place for your toe-tapping pleasure. Chances are you’ve heard of most of these great dance songs; if you’re old enough, you might even remember dancing along to a few of them!”  Source / All RIghts Reserved:


“Following on from 2016’s well-received TurpentineThe Panoramic View is British singer/guitarist/songwriter Mark Harrison’s sixth album and probably his best yet. In a collection of 15 original songs, played on a variety of acoustic instruments, recorded with crystalline clarity by Tim Bazell of Heart of Gold Studios in London, Harrison cheerfully mixes folk, blues and gospel to create an album that is uplifting, thought-provoking, entertaining and distinctly different.
In addition to singing in his unaffected yet curiously affecting voice, Harrison fingerpicks National and 12-string guitars masterfully in a Piedmont style, adroitly picking up a slide on “Ain’t No Justice”. Each song has a different line-up of musicians, from the solo ragtime instrumental “Pool Meadow Strut” (which is not, apparently, named after some rural paradise but the main bus station in the English city of Coventry) to a full band line-up. Harrison’s regular band of  Charles Benfield (double bass) and Ben Welburn (drums and percussion) are joined at different time by Paddy Milner (piano), Ed Hopwood (harmonica) and Paul Tkachenko (trombone, trumpet, mandolin and even tuba on “Mess Is Everywhere”) […] .
