This is the third release from the New York City country-blues duo Eden & John's East River String Band (Eden Brower: vocals, ukulele and guitar, John Heneghan: vocals, guitar, mandolin and kazoo). It features another striking cover by underground comic-artist legend Robert Crumb (The Book Of Genesis, Heroes Of The Country Blues). This record includes performances from special guests Dom Flemons (The Carolina Chocolate Drops), Eli Smith (Down Home Radio Show, The Dust Busters) and Pat Conte (The Otis Brothers, The Secret Museum Of Mankind). Their previous release Some Cold Rainy Day (ERR 1002CD/LP) also featured a cover by R. Crumb and received critical acclaim which led to tours of the U.S. and Europe. Drawing from the vast spectrum of traditional American country blues music, Eden & John's East River String Band create some of the most authentic-sounding renditions of songs from the 1920s and early '30s. Focusing on both well-known, and lesser-known country blues and some popular music of this era, their love and deep reverence for this music shines through in every song. Drunken Barrel House Blues features classic country and blues masterpieces by legends such as Charlie Patton, Memphis Minnie and Ernest Stoneman. Delivered with a genuine, spirited love for the originals, while maintaining a whiskey-strong grip on their own intimate, rough-shod renditions.
