This is the first release form the new ‘Four-Piece’ Blacktop Deluxe and it’s a tale of mining.
“Rock and Blues music has always had its origins in the hardship of the working classes. Whether you were picking cotton in the Delta, working on the Cadillac assembly lines in Detroit or mining the wealth out of the ground for the benefit of others all over the world, blue collar blues/rock told your story“.
The new single new single is all about the life and decline of the mining industry from Cornwall to Kentucky, Wales to New South Wales.
Robinson’s Shaft (more than 1400 Feet or 435 Metre’s deep) remains as part of The Heartlands Trust in Pool, Cornwall, UK a World Heritage Site.
This single is a taster for Blacktop Deluxe‘s third album (which will be in the making shortly)and is available as a free download from their website.
