With Conversation With The Blues and Blues Money Canada´s Michael Pickett has delivered two excellent records of electric blues. Solo shows now that he is also a master of solo-blues with his vocals, guitar and harp. Seven self-penned songs like the marvellous "Blues Is A Friend Of Mine" as well as four cover-versions, including Robert Johnson´s "Steady Rollin´ Man" are good proof that Pickett is able to deliver a lot of excitement along with his solo performance. His guitar picking is fine and his voice just excellent, with a very unique timbre. Acoustic, traditional blues at it´s best performed by a true bluesman!
