“Spirit & The Blues” immediately became Eric Bibb´s breakthrough album Wold-Wide in 1994!It is a real odyssey of Eric´s music. Here we find everything from black Mississippi blues to spirituals, ballads, country and even reggae – sometimes with an almost electrified swing, but guaranteed “unplugged” in the finest Opus 3 tradition!

About him Eric has gathered a large number of musicians from rock, folk and blues and last but least, “The Deacons” – a gospel quartet from the USA which was actually formed while this recording was being made!
Göran Wennerbrant is doing all the Dobros and National Steel Guitars often slidin´, and is the founder of Tiny Island, which also is the band behind Eric!

The Spirit & The Blues album received the “RECORD TO DIE FOR”-award in Stereophile Magazine (USA) in 1995!

“Bibb playes unplugged blues in the same sphere of similar calibre as Keb´ Mo´, with chilling acoustic  guitar sound and gospel-flavored backing vocals; check out “Woke up this morning” for some wondrous testifying.
Simply a gorgeous disc of music!”
