Tribute to Elmore Live EP: Haavisto, Roots & Partanen
Remember concerts? Well, we miss them, too - so we've dusted off five live numbers from a 2018 Tribute to Elmore James show at the Augustibluus festival, recorded by Heino Maripuu who has been documenting the Estonian rock scene since 1972. 100 CD's out on May 7th, 2021, no digital release: pre-order yours before May 2nd and win a free t-shirt: two (!) winners (one Ismo Haavisto T, one Andres Roots T) announced May 4th!
Mastered by Asko-Romé Altsoo, the Elmore James classics ”Dust My Broom”, “Hawaiian Boogie”, “One Way Out”, “Look on Yonder Wall” and “Shake Your Moneymaker” presented here come from a performance at the 25th Augustibluus festival in Haapsalu, Estonia on August 4th, 2018.
The band consists of Ismo Haavisto (Finland) on vocals, guitar and harmonica, Andres Roots (Estonia) on guitar and Matias Partanen (Finland) on drums – Ismo sings four of the tracks while Andres takes the lead for the all-instrumental “Hawaiian Boogie”. If you happened to be there in the audience, you can probably hear yourself sing on the extended version of “Shake Your Moneymaker”, too!
