The hype Reads:
"Acclaimed for their gritty, driving, down home-home sound, Collard Greens and Gravy play a mostly original repertoire of foot stomping country blues that would sound right at home in a Mississippi Juke Joint. Ian Collard (Vocals, Harmonica and Guitar) James Bridges (Guitar and Fiddle), Anthony Shortte (Drums) have been together since 1995. The trio have received many awards including second place at 2001's International Blues challenge in Memphis, the same year the bands second C.D “More Gravy”, won the Aria award for “Best Blues and Roots Album”. They have won the Melbourne blues appreciation society "Blues Performer of the Year" award twice, once in 2000 and again last year in 2008."
Nothin' wrong with it but Collard Greens and Gravy is more than that. While Collard Greens and Gravy may fit right in to yr local Blues Society Night at the cigar and brass rail fern bar downtown but they are far deeper than that. Their originals offer a soul, texture and vibe uncommon in that rarefied and precious scene and their covers respect and originate where others merely ape and insult. Watch yr backs America. Australia is comin' to the table and they brought their own knives.
