Overview

SLOW DOWN - Keb' Mo' Keb' Mo' rode back to the music of the Mississippi Delta from his Southern California upbringing on a fast train, with Taj Mahal and Bonnie Raitt as his spiritual engineers. On the way he made a stop at A&M to work as a staff songwriter, and though he didn't write any hits for the label, Mo' honed his skills down to the bone of the blues and came out on his own as a neo-folkie for the '90s. The 1999 Grammy-winning CD SLOW DOWN reverberates with Mo's mature and memorable lyrics. "Muddy Water," "A Better Man," and "Soon as I Get Paid" are bright and catchy, perfect for those new fans who like to sing along at Mo's concerts. Balancing out the feel-good stuff is the touching tale "I Don't Know," written in the midst of his crumbling marriage. As tribute to Mahal, Mo' offers up "Henry," which tells how the blues have affected his own life. To acknowlege another influence, he covers Robert Johnson's "Love in Vain." All told, SLOW DOWN is as pleasant as a summer breeze, revitalizing the blues without freezing out the pop world.
