"we just pick up the junk in our minds and let it go… And the blues is the main part in there"
The veteran Swedish duo formed by Richard Danielson and Clas Gustavsson met in the mid-eighties and a few years later they formed Baba Blues, who in different formats, duo or full band (Baba Blues XXL), have recorded six albums and performed at festivals throughout Europe. This latest album "Glimmer Of Gold" is made up of thirteen songs from their previous recordings and is a perfect choice to learn about the group's long career. Acoustic guitars and harmonica, sometimes minimal expressions and sometimes with reinforced sound that makes them creak in a shocking way. It's blues in simple state.
