Blues great Lucky Peterson and his special guests dig all through the blues - from the early days down in the Delta, to its modern-day step-children in popular music. Lucky is joined on this album by a stellar group of musicians including Larry Campbell(2x Grammy Winner - Levon Helm, Bob Dylan, Phil Lesh) - acoustic guitar, mandolin, pedal steel, duolian resonator, Scott Petito (Fugs, Mercury Rev, James Taylor) - bass, shakers, octave mandolin, and Gary Burke (Joe Jackson band, Bob Dylan, Crowmatix) - drums.
You Can Always Turn Around was recorded live-in-the-studio in Woodstock, New York. Together, the talent on the record dig in with fervor, and make a joyous sound that is both classic and modern – on an exquisite set of blues, roots and soul music by the likes of Lucinda_Williams, Robert Johnson, Tom_waits, Rev._Gary_Davis, Curtis Mayfield, Ray LaMontagne and others.
The musicianship of these creative masters provide an ideal artistry that compliments Lucky’s vocal prowess as he tackles roots-blues standards, Civil Rights Era anthems, and such contemporary material as Lucinda Williams’ Atonement with its strong religious imagery, conjuring up images of a Pentecostal preacher. In what might be the album’s coda, Lucky’s poignant telecaster lead blends with Larry’s pedal steel on Curtis Mayfield’s classic instrumental Superfly.
