HEAVEN MISSISSIPPI 
featuring Bob Margolin

In 2013, my friend Terry Abrahamson wrote “Heaven Mississippi” and asked me to make a demo for B.B. King.  Sadly, we realized that B.B. might not record again.  I loved Terry’s song and changed his lyrics to reflect my life and experiences rather than B.B.’s.  I recorded it for “My Road."  It’s about…well, you’ll hear it and see it, but it scares me to say it.

Scott Rosenbaum and Jasin Cadic were bringing their exquisite film “Sidemen - The Long Road to Glory” to the Pinetop Perkins Workshops and showed it in June in Clarksdale. They conceived a video for "Heaven Mississippi" and we shot it in Clarksdale.  I believe the video elevates my and Terry’s song way beyond the music and you will judge that for yourself.

Bob and Eric play Muddy Waters like  a Chicago Blues Slide Guitar, which is the subject of Bob Margolin’s next instructional book/DVD for the Hal Leonard Corp.   After the critical and sales success of Chicago Blues Rhythm Guitar, the Complete and Definitive Guide from 2015, Bob and co-author Dave Rubin will reveal the magic of this style of playing.  Bob’s experience, stories, and filmed demonstrations of the slide playing will open the door to one of the signature sounds of blues music.  Look for the book in 2017.

Steady Rollin’ Records/VizzTone Label Releases Bob Margolin’s MY ROAD

Bob Margolin My RoadMY ROAD brings a fresh focus for Margolin - both musically and lyrically:
 
"MY ROAD reveals who I am today, musically and very personally. Each song takes a surprising turn from the others and my previous music. This breakthrough for me is informed by fifty years on bandstands, my Blues music heritage and credentials, and the drive to survive and thrive in today’s pressurized world. MY ROAD is my ride through modern challenges, the ironies and lessons of aging, achieving true love, mourning, my band’s distinctive signature sound, a childhood epiphany, my seven years in Muddy Waters’ band, and exploring the darkest sides of life with friends who have been there.”
