Happiest Man In The World

Eric Bibb, North Country Far and Danny Thompson

The Happiest Man in the World is a 14-track tasty gumbo of country blues songs recorded in the English countryside with an exuberant, soulful spirit that feels like the perfect soundtrack for relaxing on the back porch or the front parlor. Led by multiple Blues Music Award-winner Eric Bibb, this stellar acoustic band is made up of musicians who have known each other for years. It features famed upright bassist Danny Thompson, whose resume includes work with such acclaimed artists as Alexis Korner, Donovan, Richard Thompson (no relation), Pentangle and John Martyn. The album also includes a bonus instrumental track, “King Size Bed,” which is available only in the Deluxe digital edition.

The album ends with Eric’s acclaimed cover of The Kinks classic, “You Really Got Me”…
