Listened to the DXD last night and it bored me silly. I suppose this is what happens when you move delta blues from Mississippi to Netherlands. Not a patch on Cowboy Junkies or Cassandra Wilson interpretations. Yes, it sounds very ‘real’ and sure to be a demo favourite at shows when they return. I’ll give it some more plays as it may grow on me.
cheers
First of all " talking about music is like dancing about architecture" like Monk said, that said I couldn't disagree with Blue58 more.
This is my first reaction back when the CD came out;
Got the CD this weekend and listened last night. What a trip. Finally a band that dares to make a concept album.
I am big Robert Johnson fan and have all the covers of his songs made from the likes of Elmore James and Eric Clapton to the Rolling Stones and what have you, but Carmen Gomes Inc takes first place in my top 10, why? They have made the songs their own. In no way do they try emulate Robert Johnson, instead they seem to have looked at each song and explored the song it self, so not Robert Johnson the artist but Robert Johnson the composer. So refreshing. https://carmengomes.bandcamp.com/track/up-jumped-the-devil

So far, I prefer her Carmen Sings the Blues a lot more. I thought her interpretations were better, more sure footed. The website page below allows you to listen to each track...select down below where all the tracks are listed, and then up above towards the top is the play, pause button.

I like both albums. "Sings the blues'' is more traditional and it's a live album.
"Up Jumped The Devil" is a concept album. One should listen from start to finish. I find it absolutely mesmerizing.
And the SQ it maybe the best I have ever heard.
Sound Liaison is selling the 24/192 and the 24/96 on soundliaison.bandcamp.com/music
but for the DXD master file or DSD one has to go to Sound Liaison.com
