VIC RUGGIERO: On The Rag Time: 7" EP

Oct 16, 2009

Music can be a personal tour guide to some other place and some other time and when listening to such date specific and location specific music such as Ruggiero’s, On The Rag Time vinyl, I’m extremely guarded about letting myself get carried too far away. That said, the sweet innocent nature of this old time blues music makes me feel like I’m in some Louisiana parlor and I can’t help but smile. I don’t find myself listening to this kind of stuff normally but if you’re into time warp blues piano man/song writer stuff than this 7” is for you.
