Larry McCray has released a music video for “Down To The Bottom.” The track is from McCray’s newly released album, Blues Without You, which Blues Rock Review’s Jamie Warden called “a damn near perfect blues record.” The album was produced by Joe Bonamassa and Josh Smith.
“Larry McCray is a legend,” said Bonamassa. “We have known that for 30 years. He is the last of the great blues shouters from the rust belt. It’s now up to the world to rediscover him. He has been here all along.”
About “Down To The Bottom,” Warden said, “The song is similar to its predecessor in style and feel. It’s a musical undertaking where Larry discusses the challenges he’s been through during his life and career.”
Warden adds, “The emotion and sentiment expressed in this song can only be conveyed by someone who has had some struggles in their life. The song builds throughout and climaxes with an elaborate string arrangement accented by background vocals from Jade McRae and Dannielle DeAndrea from Joe’s touring band. Larry and Warren trade guitar solos bringing the song to an end, while leaving the listener inspired by the uplifting message of the song.”
