The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band – Peyton On Patton (2011)
The band’s latest release Peyton on Patton is a bit of a different look at The Rev. The album is a tribute to the legendary Delta Bluesman Charley Patton. Peyton on Patton is a largely solo affair with the Rev’s growling vocals and searing guitar work placed front and center on these rural blues classics.
Washboard Breezy, the Rev’s fantastic wife, contributes washboard percussion on just a couple of these tracks, but her vocals on “Elder Greene Blues” are a real highlight. Aaron “Cuz” Persinger contributes in a starkly different manner, drumming with just his hands on a century-old tobacco barrel.
