Leroy is really one of the very best bluesmen I’ve ever played with, and I’ve played with most of the greats, guys like Walter Davis, Robert Nighthawk, Sonny Boy Williamson, Robert Johnson and Roosevelt Sykes. Leroy is up there with those greats.” – Henry Townsend

With an endorsement like that from one of blues’ most historic figures, it’s a major wonder that Leroy Jodie Pierson isn’t a star himself. Instead, he rarely takes his craft far from his St. Louis home. Once you hear this direct-to-disc you might be inspired to join a crusade to change that. Leroy Jodie Pierson is that good, and this recording is as close as you can possibly get to having him over for a visit.

There was magic in the sanctuary of Blue Heaven Studios that October 2004 Saturday afternoon. On the altarsat Leroy, cross-legged and cradling his National ResoLectric steel guitar with a glass slide encasing his left pinky finger and caressing the strings, while his right fingers aggressively plucked and strummed. The result is a dramatic yet buttery-smooth take offive killer blues numbers and one gospel tune.
