Blueswamp Southern – “Ain’t Coming Back” CD

13 tracks, 45 minutes, not a duff one on it. The musicianship is first rate throughout, with carefully worked out arrangements and excellent slide guitars and harp.
(Bob Jones – Blues in Britain Magazine)

Voted best Album of 2012/13.
(Moonshine Magazine - Jan 2013 Issue)

Blueswamp Southern was fully formed in 2007 by legendary Leicester based slide guitarist Bob Dayfield. The idea had been germinating for some time in acoustic duos/trios and former band associations. Original drummer Geoff Bates sadly passed away at the beginning of 2012 after a long fight with cancer. The core of the band remains Bob Dayfield on guitars & vocals, Bob is also the bands main songwriter, Nick Hough on guitars & vocals and Alan Shotter who is the bands lead vocalist, bass player and harp man. For the 'electric' shows the band have Flipdog on bass guitar and vocals, Slim Williams has now joined the band on drums/percussion, and Gordon Taylor occasionally drums with the electric line up.
