Bourne, Schuld, Stamer


No Special Rider: Country Blues (1997) was the brainchild of Andreas Schuld who brought Bill Bourne and Hans Stamer together for the first time. They headed off to the studio and in a few hours had 24 songs recorded, almost all of them first takes. A tribute to the blues that influenced all three artists, the recording has a special direct, honest feel that got it nominated for a Juno Award in the blues category in 1998. Acoustic blues fans will find this an immensely satisfying recording, well worth collecting. The album was produced by Andreas Schuld.
