All You Can Eat!
Greyhound George plays acoustic fingerstyle blues in a virtuoso manner but he always rocks! His first album "Delta Gog" was loved by critics in Europe: "great guitar sounds and soulful slide playing...." (AKUSTIK GITARRE, Germany) "...he proves, that country blues has a future ...(BLUES NEWS, Germany) "...somewhere behind the stars there must be some great bluesmen who have passed their talents on to this man..." (ROOTSTIME, Belgium) On 'All You Can Eat!' Greyhound George plays National type resonator guitar, dobro, acoustic and sometimes electric guitar and mandolin. Greyhound George has been playing the blues since the nineteen seventies and he has done his homework! He has learned to master the slide- and fingerpicking styles of prewar bluesmen like Robert Johnson, Fred McDowell, Tampa Red and Blind Blake, but he always puts in something of his own. Greyhound George does not try to copy the sound of the old times. To him, the blues is a living art and he plays it the way it should be played in the 21st century because he always knows, that in the meantime there have been musical styles like rock, soul and even rap which have developed from the blues. "All You Can Eat!" is a blues -buffet,rich in variety, not only for blues historians and guitar gourmets! Greyhound George has written ten new songs for this album and makes his own versions of songs written by people like Son House, B.B. King, Curtis Mayfield or Bob Dylan. On some of these songs, you can hear the musicians that play with George in his live shows: On bass and backing vocals there is Georges wife Heidi Schildmann, Andy Grünert plays the harmonica and Helmut Sprick plays an old Hammond B-3 organ.
