Burnside Album Details
Chambers, Sean, Ten Til Midnight
The former musical director for Hubert Sumlin, blues guitarist and singer Sean Chambers third CD, Ten Til Midnight, showcases the powerful style which earned him critical plaudits from a host of magazines, including Europe's Guitarist Magazine, which listed Sean as "one of the Top 50 Blues Guitarists of the last century." On Ten Til Midnight, Sean Chambers and co-producer Tim Blair wanted to go for a live sound similar to their incendiary concert shows; so most of the tracks were recorded with few overdubs. Sean's aggressive, yet fluid blues guitar approach is evident throughout the seven originals, as well as covers of songs from ZZ Top ("Brown Sugar"), Luther Allison ("All the King's Horses") and Eddie "Guitar Slim" Jones ("You're Gonna Miss Me"). It's that combination of reverence for tradition along with his special jolt of energy that makes his sound so unique.
