Title - 'Nobody's Fault But Mine' (TimeLife)
Artist - Edwin McCain
'Nobody's Fault But Mine' was recorded in the spirit of a live album, an homage to the way the songs were originally performed with little studio overdubbing, retakes and other technological patchwork.
Singer/songwriter Edwin McCain had recently taken a rare break to record an album of vintage R&B and classic southern soul songs. 'Nobody's Fault But Mine' is this end result - releasing June 24th on TimeLife Records - and is quite easily some of his best work to date.
Featuring the songs of legendary artists including Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Al Green, Wilson Pickett, Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin and more, the new album - including the heavy musical talents of both Eddie Bayers and Ivan Neville and special guests Steve Cropper and Joan Osborne - has McCain’s formula of earnest soul vocals over acoustic-led folk-rock down to a refined, perfected tee.
