Seasick Steve, ‘Man From Another Time’ (Ryko)

David Menconi // March 21, 2010

And here you thought Waylon Jennings had been dead for years. Jennings may be gone, but his voice lives on in Steve Wold, a bluesman who looks like Father Time and sounds like a live ringer for ol’ Waylon. But don’t hate Steve because he’s a beautiful outlaw stand-in. Man From Another Time cuts a steady rolling groove that wears well, from the opening salvo of “Diddley Bo” (which turns the Bo Diddley backbeat sideways) to the closing cover of “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry.” Time may have forgotten him, but you won’t.
