Life isn't just one flavour. Music shouldn't all have the same taste. In the right hands, the blues can be a rainbow, and with Candy Store Kid, Ian Siegal has just painted his masterpiece. This latest album takes its name from a line in the song Loose Cannon, and the thrill that Ian felt as he pick-'n'-mixed some of the greatest players on the contemporary blues scene ("You get to feeling like the proverbial kid in a candy store," he recalls). In Britain, Ian Siegal might be rocketing towards the status of national treasure, but for Candy Store Kid, the 41-year old once again quit the motherland for the US Southern state that's becoming his creative catalyst, Mississippi. Lest we forget, it was the North Mississippi hill country, and specifically the Zebra Ranch studio in Coldwater, that provided the backdrop to Ian's celebrated 2011 album, The Skinny, and for this latest album, he returned to work in the same productive environment.
