John Anderson does “Magic Mama” right
by Walter Price
My history is lined with memorable moments soundtracked by the one of a kind voice that is John Anderson. An artist who that no matter my living location when his tracks came from the radio I felt right at home. Sure, kinda sentimental and nostalgic thinking of tunes like “Swingi”, “She Just Started Cheatin’”, “The Ling Black Veil”, “Black Sheep” and of course “Seminole Wind” to name a few.
No need to live in the vast past of classics from the man who has been steady and reliable sonically for decades. Anderson is out with a new instant boogie summertime staple, “Magic Mama”, from the new 13 track this is the way country music should sound ‘Goldmine’ (Bayou Boys Music).
The Merle Haggard penned ode to a sassy if not a bit angled classy gal from Malibu showcases Anderson distinctive easy going delivery.
A bit cheeky, a bit cautionary, heavy on proper country swagger and a whole lot of hip swivel inducing boogie woogie. Good to be at home again.
