Ocean of Tears

"One of the strongest batches of original blues tunes to come along in years...Anyone wondering how the blues can transcend its increasingly stale clichés and move into the 21st century should look no further...Paul deLay and his band are creating blues that celebrates roots at the same time it blazes new trails."
- from liner notes by Mark Spangler
 

Paul deLay's first new recording since his '92 release, Paulzilla. Features 10 originals, most of them penned during his three-year retreat at the Sheridan, Oregon "Club Fed." Rejoined by the core of his old band -- Chicagoan Peter Dammann on guitar, Louis Pain on Hammond organ, and Dan Fincher on saxophone -- with the searing rhythm section of bassist John Mazzocco (formerly with John Lee Hooker and Curtis Salgado) and drummer Mike Klobas (of Lloyd Jones Struggle), deLay breaks new ground. Features a duet with the extraordinary soul/blues vocalist Linda Hornbuckle (who fronted the No Delay Band during deLay's absense), and pianist Janice Scroggins.
