Travis Haddix - It's My Time Now The Best Of


Travis Haddix speel de blues al sinds het begin van de jaren zeventig. In de jaren tachtig begon Travis met het opnemen van albums. De nu 76 jarige bluesman kan bogen op een geweldige staat van dienst. Met de release van het album ' It's My Time Now' presenteert Haddix een overzicht van zijn opnamen van de afgelopen 15 jaar (inclusief drie nieuwe nummers). Na het beluisteren van het album kan ik alleen maar mijn hoed afnemen.

De verzameling van nummers op het album is zeer divers en ijzersterk. Dit album mag eigenlijk niet ontbreken in de collectie van de serieuze blues liefhebber. Voor de mensen die nog niet bekend waren met het werk van Travis Haddix is 'It's My Time Now' een prima album om kennis te maken. Travis Haddix zal U zeker niet teleurstellen.
