The Black Sorrows :: Citizen John

by
Wednesday’s Child is het beste nummer dat Joe Camilleri geschreven heeft. Het is de opener van Citizen John, het 21ste album van The Black Sorrows. De groep is nu al ruim dertig jaar de vaandeldrager van de Australische rootsmuziek en op Citizen John zijn ze beter in vorm dan ooit. Soul, rock en blues, het gaat ze allemaal even makkelijk af. De keuze van de drie covers, naast de tien eigen nummers, is ook zeer geïnspireerd: Nina Simone’s Do I Move You, Bob Dylan’s Silvio en Sitting On Top Of The World van The Mississippi Sheiks. Topplaat.

Citizen John, The Black Sorrows’ 21st album, sits comfortably alongside the band’s finest work, including multi-platinum classics such as Harley and Rose and Hold On To Me. Albums that achieved considerable chart success both in their home country of Australia and in Europe.
The album showcases The Black Sorrows’ sophisticated brand of soulful, bluesy roots music and production prowess. Camilleri wrote the record with his long-time compadre Nick Smith. The 10 original songs are complemented by covers of Bob Dylan’s underrated pop gem ‘Silvio’ and Nina Simone’s ‘Do I Move You?’ plus an original arrangement of the traditional ‘Sitting On Top Of The World’.
