Release Date:09/16/2008;Notes:LP version. Gatefold cover with full cover artwork by Robert Crumb, 180 gram vinyl. Eden & John's East River String Band are a contemporary acoustic duo that play country/blues classics from the 1920s and 1930s. The band consists of Eden Brower on ukulele and vocals with John Heneghan on guitar and vocals, including special guest Terry Waldo (legendary ragtime piano player who has recorded and toured with Leon Redbone and Woody Allen). The duo try to keep alive the rural music tradition that existed before the Great Depression of the '30s, playing primarily country blues covers including classics by such greats as Skip James, Mississippi John Hurt, Lottie Kimbrough and Blind Lemon Jefferson. Here are some rave reviews: "Some Cold Rainy Day is by far one of the most enjoyable contemporary recordings of early pre-war blues music I have ever heard. Eden and John stay true to the original arrangements and vocals that these songs had when they were first released. I would call this a MUST-own for fans young and old of blues music and even those who want a modern introduction to the great old music of the 1920s and 1930s. PLEASE NOTE: Crumb not only did the cover for this album he loves the music on it, too. Crumb collectors know that he does very little commercial work now with his busy schedule and will only illustrate items he himself loves. What better endorsement is there than that?" -Ralph Deluca "Eden and John do a fantastic job with their special renditions of great old blues songs! The guitar playing is great and Eden has just the right voice for most of the songs. It is a bit odd to hear a woman do Willie Brown's "Future Blues," but Eden pulls it off in a way that grows on you with each listening. I am not much of a fan of modern day artists doing classic blues songs, but this is one CD that has found a home in my rotation.";Track List:1. Ain't No Tellin';2. Nobody's Business If I Do;3.
