    The Bluebirds hail from Shreveport, Louisiana and combine all the best elements that town's melting pot of musical elements has to offer. They play lean, clean and bluesy, with a style more than a bit reminiscent of Creedence Clearwater Revival. Buddy Flett plays great slide guitar, is the nominal leader of this trio and wrote ten of the fourteen on this, their debut outing. With a brick-solid rhythm section of brother Bruce Flett on bass and Kerry Hunter on drums, The Bluebirds' sound is rootsy without being reverent, modern without losing its soul. Highlights include "Testing the Water," "3rd House on the Left" and a wild version of Leadbelly's "No More Cane on the Brazos." ~ Cub Koda
