CD REVIEWS: FOLK and ROOTS; Ghost Flight (One Little Indian) ROBERT LOVE.
THE gravelly-voiced Alabama frontman sets up solo stall with an album rooted in folk and blues but unafraid to add the odd jazz phrase or rock'n'roll riff - and it's dynamite. Whether he's singing the blues in Lift Up Your Name, adding New Orleans gumbo to Snow Blind or hitting the Woody Guthrie road for I'll Sing Hallelujah To You, Love emerges as Britain's answer to John Hiatt, his distinctively deep rasp at times resembling his hero, Johnny Cash. There's humour, too, in the electric boogie of Operator Blues and bar-room singalong She's More Rock And Roll With Me. JD
