I'm thinking about buying this from kid glove. Who's heard it? Any reviews?

Sandman, you have this? I'm not in for another "Alone and Acoustic," am I?

Droog, I have it... Well, it is just Jack & a guitar and William, a harmonica & his voice. All the vocals are by William. There is one track that is just William and another that is just Jack on guitar. It's all acoustic delta blues type. If you like that sort of thing, it is excellent. However, if you don't have Jack's instrumental 'jazz' album, I prefer that as I think it is more what I like about Jack's playing. I don't know if that helps you or not.

I'm a huge fan of acoustic blues guitar, especially slide. The acoustic sets during Jack's tenure with the bros are frickin' awesome.

If we're talking one guitar, one harmonica, and one or two voices, I think the model (at least for me) is Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee. Some sweet, sweet, music not "delta," but full of soul none the less. So when you ask "if I like that sort of thing," the answer is "hell yes."

Shut up, Sandman.

Top - It's well worth the money. Go for it and you won't regret it.

It's Jack, kind of just sitting back on a porch and chillin'. William Howse breathes fire with the harp. It's a wonderful album. "I Can't Stop Tumblin" and "Every Time it Rains" are great tunes.

It's just one of those albums where you can sit back on a weekend morning, or some other day when you got no particular place to go, and let it roll straight through. It's relaxing. It may be new to you, but the sound and vibe is just so familiar. It's home.

My .02 worth. If you like old style acoustic blues then give this album a try. Some fine harp playing by William and I don't have to say anything to the fans around here about Jack's abilties to move you with his guitar playing. Add in some very soulful singing and some great songwriting and you have a blues album that you will enjoy for a long time to come. Some of the songs are simple, some just down right POWERFUL! If you like the old style blues, GO BUY THIS CD!

To PURCHASE this CD go to http://www.hittinthenote.com/merchandise/kgeMerchDrill.asp?itemID=CD021

To LISTEN ONLY to six 2 min sample's go to http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/pearson3

A sample from 2 reviews of "William Howse & Jack Pearson"...

"Two old friends, two bluesmen extraordinaire, two kindred spirits, two brothers. William Howse and Jack Pearson combine their love of the blues and their natural affinity and connection to each other to give us an outstanding look into acoustic blues songs and stylings. Twenty years or more of playing the blues together allows these fine musicians the opportunity to come up with a front porch collection of original tunes, easy to listen to, with much to say and even more to ingest...a real gem of great blues. Stripped down and very basic, the CD features only William's harp, Jack's National steel body guitar, and vocals from both men...musicians of the finest order...simply stellar and worth getting by anyone who is schooled in the blues in any way..."
Hittin' the Note Magazine


"fine harp playing and nuanced vocals...with interesting licks that feel right, tonally and texturally. [Howse's] playing and singing interweave seamlessly with Jack Pearson's sympathetic guitar accompaniment...his slide work on National steel has a sweet, sometimes mournful quality that works well...a solid first release."
Blues Revue Magazine
