Song Review – Buffalo Nichols “Back on Top” from the album Buffalo Nichols

I have always and I am sure always will…love a tune with a slow, slightly jangly blues riff …just like this song.   I suppose that leaves me as biased listener but I just cannot help it and this selection really delivers on what I love about those kinds of songs.  The guitar and drum here provide such a solid foundation and allow the tune to unwind slowly.  Nichols also has a slightly smoky voice which adds a little bit of Memphis night club atmosphere when he sings and it all comes together well.   A really good song from what I consider to be a breakout album from this Wisconsin-based musician – highly recommended 🙂
