The folk blues singer-songwriter Eric Bibb has been performing around the world for over three decades. This acoustic 2007 album demonstrates his eclectic approach with a variety of styles, including the African-flavored "Tall Cotton," the romantic, gospel-tinged "Story Book Hero," and a dexterous fingerpicking version of Bob Dylan's "Buckets of Rain."
