Dennis and Neil were the creative force behind all the classic Eric Street Band albums, from the 'Eric Street Band Live' through to 'Across The Board'.
This is the follow-up to their previous album, Half & Half. Dennis says...
"We just had to do this due to the great feedback we received from the music press in our area - voting Half & Half one of the best albums in 2020. It had a great review on Blues Matters and got played on lots of blues internet radio stations.
So we wrote and recorded Higher Ground between July and December last year (2020), but because of the next Covid lockdown this year we were unable to do the mix until this April. There are 10 brand new tracks that we've written, and Neil has been honing his slide guitar skills during the lockdown so expect some down and dirty riffs and hard-hitting rhythms.
We’ve tried to bring back your smile in these very sad and dark days with some up-tempo blues-rock designed to lift up your spirits!"
"...This is the follow up to last year's excellent 'Half & Half' album, and I think these two experienced campaigners have surpassed it in spades. Ten originals that display the subtle writing skills of Dennis and the musicality of Neil delivered with aplomb...
...I highly recommend this album, it's timeless and simply high quality throughout."
Steve Yourglivch, Blues Matters - August/September 2021
"...Yet again I have found a band who are far too original, inventive, and talented not to be enjoying seriously big success. I can only hope that someone puts them out on the road with a major draw so more people can enjoy their wonderful sound and style. Buy this album and see this band, I insist!"
