Dr. Bob’s Acoustic Tonic
On Dr. Bob’s Acoustic Tonic I return to my folk and jugband roots with a collection of ragtime and blues tunes.
The album is a mix of vintage tunes from ’20’s and ’30s, by artists like Blind Boy Fuller, Uncle Dave Macon, Georgia Tom and others, and more contemporary tunes written “in the style” by myself and friends like Colin Linden, Graeme Card and Howard Emerson.
Dr. Bob’s Acoustic Tonic is also a departure from my three previous CDs in that it is a vocal and guitar based album instead of being strictly instrumental. Consider yourself warned.
