Eric Lindell's West County Drifter marks the first release by the roots rocker for M.C. Records and his first national release in over two years. Special guests include Delbert McClinton, and Ivan Neville.
West County Drifter is chock full of all the elements that has made Eric a roots music star since his 2006 Alligator Records debut: great original songs, soulful guitar playing, right on singing and a tough and tight band. Sessions for this generous 18 track double disc set were recorded where Eric was born and raised in Northern California and his adopted hometown of New Orleans. West County Drifter is a mostly original affair with choice covers. Included are two by Curtis Mayfield, 'Find Another Girl' and 'It's So Hard To Believe.'
West County Drifter confirms what the Chicago Sun-Times wrote about Eric, 'a tremendous talent with a poet's soul, Lindell writes from the heart with a fully realized musical vision.'
