Must have for that special one
An album filled w/the blues to snuggle close to that someone special
Heard this over the PA at a BB King concert last night. Used Shazam to find what out who / what it was and downloaded it on the spot. Have listened to it twice today.
Great mellow blues with a message. I love it!
Original & amazing!
I know Keb' Mo' has been on the music scene for well over a decade now, but Suitcase is my first introduction to his talent. I cannot compare this album to his previous works, but I will sing its praises. This is moving and soulful music. I have not been this excited to hear a new musician since Norah Jones appeared. His is a unique voice. I look forward to digging into his vault of past albums and I encourage all to buy this one. He is a talented instrumentalist, a gifted song-writer and has a voice which reaches out from deep within.
Keb Mo is great blues
Get this one
Still not the Keb' Mo' of old
I keep buying his albums hoping to hear one that rekindles the magic of his first, but I keep being disappointed. This album is nothing like the first. Sadly I think he should go back to covering other peoples material and not trying to showcase his own. I won't buy another Keb' Mo' album.
I'm a 45 year-old classic rock product who had never heard of Keb' Mo' until he opened at a Robert Cray concert in my home town of Colorado Springs. I was pumped about seeing Robert Cray, and only hoped that the opening act didn't stink. As soon as Keb's band got rolling and his vocals began filling the concert hall, I looked at my wife and said "wow, what a great voice!" He was so smooth, both his singing and playing. The man is totally in control of his craft. He doesn't play to you, he takes you with him on every song's voyage. At the end of the night, I overheard many leaving the concert hall reinforcing my thought that Keb' had stolen the show (not to dis Cray, he was terrific in his own right). I desperately seek new music that keeps me at my own roots and takes me home, and Keb' Mo' is like a finding long lost brother on your doorstep. It kind of made me wonder how long he's been there and why didn't I see him sooner?
After the concert we bought "Suitcase" and we spin it daily. If you love music, you'll love "Suitcase". If you're hung-up because it's not "real blues", then you're not living in the "real world".
classic blues fused with soulful melodies.; may seem stereotypical to the blues aficionado, but for the neophyte, the album offers sweet accessibilit
i love this album
i love it when ever i play it i think of my uncle bob
I Love This Album.
I'm sitting in the car waiting impatiently for my mom. My day has already been pretty bad.
She hops in, and starts the engine. I click on the radio to listen to the same stuff I hear everyday. But no, my mom has to switch it to her regularly stupid CDs. I get aggravated but let it slide, the last thing I need is an arguement on top of my bad day.
However, this time, the CD that she plays isn't her typical senseless nothing. It's a jazzy, enjoyable, and happy CD. I ask, "Who's this?"
She says, "Keb' Mo'." She tells me, "I went to his concert with Kathy, and he's incredible. He connects with his audience. I remembered Sam was out with his friends so I had to go out in the hall to call and see if he needed me to pick him up, and so I got out of my seat and began to walk out to make the call, and Keb' Mo' says, 'Ay yawning girl! You don't like my music? What's your name?' and I say, 'Molly. But I love your music, I have to make a phone call.' and he says, 'This one goes to you, Molly.' And I made my call."
This sounds cheesy, but the CD actually enlightened my day a ton. My personal favorites on this CD are 'The Itch' 'Remain Silent' and 'Life is Beautiful.' But don't just look at my favorites. I recommend the whole CD. Buy it now, it's worth it.
