I would still plant my apple tree

Originally released in 1995, Better Days was re-released after the success of Just Won't Burn created a legion of blues fans wanting more of Susan Tedeschi.

This record finds Tedeschi's guitar prowess and eminent vocals proliferating the musical landscape in the same manner of blues legends who have gone before her. The tracks "It Hurts Me Too" and "Ain't Nobody's Business" are classic slow, bluesy songs complete with emotional vocal wailings that are sure to bring the house down when performed in a live arena.

She picks up the pace with "Locomotive" and "I Don't Want Nobody," showing off her six-string skills. While there is no question that Tedeschi is a true talent and a blues force to be reckoned with, the musical arrangements could be improved by using a less-formulaic blues structure and attempting to offer something more contemporary.

She has proven herself worthy of sharing the stage with the masters; her next challenge should be to break away and create her own sound.

Be warned -- this is an album that will grow on you very quickly.

Jesse Cook is a Canadian flamenco guita
rist who took the world fusion route at some point, basing his playing against a wonderful mix and match of percussion, synthesizers and samplers. It's easy to spot some of the artificial elements, but many more of them have been blurred into the total sound, making it impossible to separate live players from the computer-driven tracks -- excellent work indeed (Cook also produced and engineered the tracks, which makes the result all the more impressive).

Tempest is a subtle album, very seductive, getting one's attention without demanding it, through a clever phrase, a particularly soulful vibrato, a nice effect in the rhythm tracks, and so on. Intent listening to this album is a very rewarding experience indeed. (
by Steven McDonald)

A substantial part of the album's publicity was gained after the tracks Tempest and Breeze from Saintes Maries were used by a local Ontario cable TV operator as a background music for their 'TV Guide' listing channel. The tracks were played in a loop for many months "growing" on many viewers to the point they called the cable operator to inquire about it. (by wikipedia)
