Sugarcane’s brand new album Going back to Clarksdale was recorded between 2012 and 2014 in New Orleans and Clarksdale Mississippi employing local musicians from these two great bastions of the Blues, with the finishing touches added in his home town of Cairns, Queensland, Australia.

It’s a fascinating set of songs produced and arranged by the man himself that moves from the sizzle of big brassy swing and smoky Jazz/Blues N’awlins style, up to the more raw, stripped back acoustic guitar/harmonica and small band sounds of the Delta. Collins harks back to the days when the blues was a music of unique individuality and direct personal experience and when he sings “from New Orleans up to Clarksdale that’s a ten hour Greyhound ride..” of the title track Going back to Clarksdale, you know damn well this tough and talented troubadour has travelled every inch of the way!
