Album review: 'All I Got and Need' 

The Crawdiddies

"All I Got and Need"

Self-released

thecrawdiddies.com

The Crawdiddies sing "The Drug Smokin' Blues" on the band's new album, "All I Got and Need." The quartet also sings "The Death of John Henry," but other than that, The Crawdiddies doesn't get too hung up in the illicit, morose, or maudlin, like other fiddle bands feel they have to.

But The Crawdiddies isn't really a fiddle band. In fact, there isn't a fiddle to be had among the band, but Irishman at large Joe Dady does make a guest appearance playing fiddle on the title track, making it sizzle like holy water on the devil's back. Recorded with care at bandmember Washboard Dave's crib, "All I Got and Need" is a mostly original, six-song outing recorded with a steady hand and an equally steady ear for the quartet's individual talents. Everyone shines when they ought to. Real good summertime music.
