2006, Yellow Dog Records

Guitar virtuoso Terry Robb – multiple winner of the Cascade Blues Association’s Muddy Award for Best Acoustic Guitar – is one of the most heralded players of the flourishing Pacific Northwest blues scene. Resting Place, his debut album with Yellow Dog Records, features well-chosen covers that compliment Robb’s originals, echoing a broad swath of roots legends such as Merle Travis, Joe Callicott, Reverend Gary Davis, Lightning Hopkins, and John Fahey.

Robb traveled to Memphis for a dream recording session with engineer Roland Janes (Jerry Lee Lewis) – linchpin of hundreds of Sun Records and Sam Phillips recording sessions. Anchoring the date were some of Memphis’ finest: drummer Willie Hall (Isaac Hayes, The Blues Brothers, The Bo-Keys), bassist Paul Taylor (North Mississippi Allstars), and keyboard man Charlie Wood (B.B. King, The Bo-Keys). Combined with solo tracks showcasing Robb’s phenomenal fingerpicking, the resulting album is a tour-de-force of acoustic blues guitar.
