Compilation album from Australian ‘legend’ celebrates our musical heroes

The Black Sorrows may be well-known for their own music, but their latest work is dedicated to the talented performers who have inspired them over the years. Australian singer-songwriter, saxophonist and producer Joe Camilleri leads the band, and as someone who has celebrated 50 years in the music industry, with a whopping 45 albums under his belt, he’s been described as a legend in his own right.

Yet, in a touching show of gratitude, their latest album, ENDLESS SLEEP, pays tribute to the likes of JJ Cale, Lou Reed, Warren Zevon, Eddie Hinton, John Coltrane, Willy DeVille, Hank Williams and more. This wide range of inspiration makes for an eclectic overall finish.

Camilleri’s voice is full of the American blues, roots and punk feel that has developed over the years and has been fine-tuned on the road – the band having toured Australia more times than any other since 1984.

God Don’t Like It has a blues-rock sound that is accompanied by sensational musical backing, clapping and chanting, and comes with a tribute in the lyric sheet, saying: Blind Willie McTell’s music was a constant in my discovery of the blues…way ahead of his time.”

Devil In Disguise (JJ Cale) is delivered as a fast, rocking blues number full of honkey-tonk piano and electric guitar squeals, and Better Days Ahead (Gil Scott-Heron) shows off the range of Camilleri’s vocals with a rich jazz and blues influence. That’s A Pretty Good Love is a sensational version of Big Maybelle’s track, retold with the incredible jazz vocals of singer Vika Bull, and manages to capture all the heart and groove necessary with the help of the saxophone.

Each song on this album transports you through musical history and has an authenticity that sounds of the era they were originally written and performed. Rounding out the album is a rendition of the 80s childhood favourite, Storybook Love, from the film, The Princess Bride. The Willy DeVille and Mark Knopfler song is re-worked with a magical musical touch, powered through with the rootsy grit of Camilleri’s voice.

For the hardcore fans, or those wanting to experience a pick-n-mix of The Black Sorrow’s expansive career, ENDLESS SLEEP will also be released with a bonus CD, ONE MORE TIME.

This European-only version collects some of the band’s best-known and favourite songs taken from the last 25 years. Megan Gnad
