'because i was flesh' is the physical goods debut of digitally prolific texas based american primitive guitarist will csorba. it features fifteen examples of his best playing yet, thirteen originals and covers of the blues standards 'poor boy long way from home' and 'dark was the night, cold was the ground'.
i have been following will's recordings for a few years now, and this release shows a mature grasp of this way of playing guitar and a deep immersion in folk traditions. there is some excellent slide work as well. it's a pure record of american primitive music that honors the sense of discipline at the root of the style. highly recommended.
get it here, on limited edition CD or digital.
