Lance Canales: The Blessing And The Curse

Folk-Rock bis Blues-Rock und musikalisch sehr verwandt mit Seasick Steve bietet Lance Canales auf “The Blessing And The Curse”, seine bislang dritte offizielle Platte (2008, 2012 und diese 2015). Bei Amazon ist zu lesen: “Canales is most passionate about the … release of the single ‘Plane Crash at Los Gatos: Deportee‰’ written by Woody Guthrie in 1948 and labeled by Saint Louis Magazine as a, ‰”gut-wrenchingly beautiful rendition.‰” … what makes this version so important is that it reveals the names of the Mexican nationals that were simply dubbed as ‘deportees’ in the original news article. After first performing the song with the names at the 2012 Steinbeck Festival, Canales decided he wanted to do more for the ‘deportees‰’ whom he discovered were buried in a mass, unmarked grave in Fresno, California, where the band now resides. In August of 2013, Lance Canales & The Flood are, in collaboration with Nora Guthrie and the Guthrie Foundation, putting on a concert to raise money for a historic memorial headstone for the ‰’deportees.'” Die Musik von Lance Canales hat eine unbestreitbare Ähnlichkeit mit der Woody Guthries und wenns nach mir ginge, könnte er noch jede Menge Songs von ihm ausgraben. “Deportees” ist auch tatsächlich einer der großen Songs dieses Albums.
