    Альбом стилистически похож на то, что делает Lenny Kravitz, когда увидел обложку диска, понял сразу, с кого музыкант брал пример, да и перепевка kiss потверждает вышескзанное, что это Леонид Кравченко №2 :)

    His voice not good? Conservatore, that's a bit harsh.

    I really like his "Louisiana Party", "Cain", "Starr", "Kiss". Do they sound like a sub-category of Blues? Can somebody suggest some similar songs (from him or other artists)?

    Don't be confused by the 'Similar Artists', CTK is not a Bluegrass artist but a top class Blues singer and guitar player who just happens to have played a blues track on the Oh Brother soundtrack (which was mostly Bluegrass music with a bit a Spirtual and Blues thrown in)

    his version of hard time killing floor blues is better than skip james's, i think, if only because the quality of the recording is actually good, hah
