Included in small setting and completely played live does the title of this CD lives up to its name completely. Two men who live and breathe the blues all their whole life and of which the German of this duo, Merwyk, that only three years really professional does. But also in that short time, he has already earned his spurs with 5 studio albums and some prestigious awards behind its name. Completely unplugged and without overdubs play the men here songs from their own back-catalogue for a company of dozens in a studio.

The sound here is crystal clear and gives you indeed as a listener feel like you in the men's race on lap. Musical varies the light blues and delta blues into something more mainstream it all is pleasant to the ear. Here and there what does it think of Robert Cray at the time of his debut, ' Strong Persuader ', but then of course without the electricity (or hits). Tell the men short stories between songs by underscoring the airiness of the whole show. Also in a song like ' Road Of Life ', in which Garner the how should deal with a broken heart, the humor never far to seek. ' Bad Blues ' does, because of the bass lick, what think of ' On The Road Again "by Canned Heat, but also that bond had the weather nicked from an old blues number so so is the circle again. And so it goes with many of the songs here on this album.

That the men are on their Lord and master instruments is audible beyond dispute and that they enjoy the same. That makes this album non-wrenching blues that purists might be on hands carry, but to an album what you have if you visit can put up fine. At the scorching slide guitar in ' Bullfrog ' will visit probably equally fronzen, but not for long because then it just up here again on.

Everything about this album exudes class and style. And though it's not earth-shattering, the combination of both gentlemen delivers a five quarter-long hot bath on for anyone who wants to come relax after a long day. For example, as you'll hear her music come on also beyond a channel if Arrow Jazz. The target audience of that drive will ' Upclose And Personal ' without reservation in her heart. ~Bas Duym
