about

“Delta Pines,” the first release by Australian bluesman Ivor S.K., is the product of a musical culmination leading back to where the blues began; an acoustic guitar and heartfelt vocals. Recorded in a rough-hewn, sparse soundscape that recalls the halcyon days of the pre-war blues masters, it contains five original, prime cuts of deep blues dripping with a starkly southern soul. From haunting, melancholy melodies to country infused boogie, through to dark twisted humour and soaring bottle neck brilliance, Delta Pines is a collection of compositions that creates a truly tangible atmosphere.

Track Name: Help Poor Me
My knees they ache
My feet are sore
I can't be living like this no more

My back ain't right
It fuss at night
Man I can hardly roll from left to right

But I know
Yes I know
There ain't no remedy
So won't you

Help poor me
Why don't you help poor me
Why don't you help poor me
Why don't you help poor me

Won't tell no lies
Pockets are dry
Ain't had no money since last July

My rents behind
Car payments due
Somebody tell me what I'm gonna do

'Cause I Know
Yes I know
There ain't no fix for me
So won't you

Help poor me
Why don't you help poor me
Why don't you help poor me
Why don't you help poor me

Why don't you help poor me
Why don't you help poor me
Why don't you help poor me
Track Name: Missus Green
Miss whiskey, she don't do me no good and
Miss gin, she put me into a spin
That's why I love
I love my Missus Green

Miss champagne only like fancy things and
Miss wine, only good good some o' the time
That's why I need
I need my Missus Green

Well I don't
Need no-one else you see
'Cause I know
Well she's the one for me

Miss absinthe, she keep me up all night and
Miss rum, bitch only wanna fight
That's why I see
I see my Missus Green

Well Missus Green
You know she can't be beat
Taste so good
Yeah when she's sticky sweet

And miss vodka she far too mean for me
And miss beer ain't got no personality
That's why I need
I need my Missus Green

When I wrap
My lips around her tight
Yes I know
Sure gonna be alright
That's why I love
I love my Missus Green
Yes I love
I love my Missus Green
Track Name: I Like The Way
I love the way you walk
I love the way you talk
I love the way that you whisper
I love the way you walk

I like the way you move
I like the way you do
I like your hair on that pillow
I like the way you move

Don't like the things you say
Didn't like ya yesterday
Don't like that cheap perfume
Don't like your attitude

I hate your wicked ways
I hate you wanna stay
I hate your mind and your family
I hate your wicked ways
Track Name: Delta Pines
Rolled into Vicksburg
Crossed that Mississippi state
Them bright lights by the river done tore
My body from my pay
Rolled out in the morning
Went by Willie Dixon Way
The southern roads kept winding
The nights bled into days

Indianola where you, been so long
I seen Patton's bones
I made Church Street home
Heard the King sing the final song
Need fuel in the evening
The Blue Biscuit's just the thing
It was quiet on the highway
Yeah I'm riding for the King

Hello Helena
You're sure, looking fine
I came rolling down the row and somebody said
King Biscuit Time
Friars Point was calling
Yeah where Johnson sang his song
The red eye drive got hazy
I can't remember right from wrong

Come up on Clarksdale
It's just gone ninety six
I got some hot tamales
Seen where they laid out Bessie Smith
At night I hung off reefer
Watching Leo burn up Reds
The delta pines are calling
Listen what Muddy Waters said
