Ironing Board Sam: Double Bang! $20.00

After playing professionally for more than 55 years, Ironing Board Sam has amassed a staggering repertoire of both originals and classic blues and R&B songs. A truly gifted and engaging performer, Sam’s powerful, soulful voice and remarkable piano prowess remain undiminished. Double Bang is a result of those decades of experience combined with a creative and talented soul with a joy of spirit that is unrivaled. The Sydney Morning Herald said of Sam: “Ironing Board Sam, 73 years young, sang like his pants were on fire and attacked his keyboard as if it had sinned. He even dragged it from its stand and played it kneeling on the floor.”
album: Super Spirit - VINYL

Ironing Board Sam: Super Spirit - VINYL $18.00

Super Spirit is the newest album from Ironing Board Sam, released on Big Legal Mess Records and produced by Bruce Watson and Jimbo Mathis. Dangerous Minds said, "[On Super Spirit] Sam’s backed by a solid group of players, and the record includes soulful covers of songs written by Jack Oblivion, Ann Peoples, Roy Hawkins, and Mick Collins. Collins wrote “I Can’t Take It,” originally recorded by titans of Detroit garage rock, the Gories, as “I Think I’ve Had It,” and included on their raucous debut, Houserockin’ (1989). Ironing Board Sam’s version absolutely cooks, melding rock, soul, and blues to fine effect. Sam possesses the kind of weathered, soul-drenched voice that only a seasoned R&B veteran has these days. In the age of sterile Auto-Tuned vocals, we need him more than ever. Sam possesses the kind of weathered, soul-drenched voice that only a seasoned R&B veteran has these days.

No Depression said, "Even though his latest, Super Spirit, is a studio record, it has the same energy and wildness as his live performances... Sam is in fine shape here, taking on all comers and laying em out, his spirit and his skills stronger than ever." Among Ironing Board Sam’s many triumphs of the past few years – returning several times to New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, playing Newport Folk Festival, performing at Lincoln Center, appearing on the PBS News Hour, signing with Big Legal Mess for his new album ‘Super Spirit’ is one of his proudest accomplishments.
