SUNNY FUNNY BLUES

Divergo

1980

Curieux album de blues acoustique gravé pour la marque italienne Divergo. Cooper Terry y est seul à la guitare accompagné seulement d'un choeur féminin (donnant une intonation Gospel du meilleur effet) et d'un harmonica. Excellent guitariste et chanteur, poète également, il délivre ici un remarquable disque avec de superbes plages intenses : "Sunny fun", "Signifyin' women", "Ain't go no home", "Goin' back to Frisco", "Prettiest train". Un magnifique disque d'un bluesman dont l'oeuvre devrait être réévaluée.
