about

Released in 2011, this was the fifth album from the old Eric Street Band partnership of Dennis Siggery and Neil Sadler. It was voted 'one of the best albums of 2011' by Blues In Britain magazine. Here's what Dennis said about the album...

"It tells the story of a man who strived and succeeded to increase his company's profits. But in so doing, he spent all his time working, to the detriment of his relationship, and as a result of never being at home, his partner had an affair behind his back.

The news of this sends him on a downward spiral, affecting his sales. But the company had no sympathy and made his life hell. Despite all his loyalty and promises made, the management called him in one afternoon and told him to pack up his desk and leave.

Having no job he now had to plead with his partner to stick with him, but she chose to walk away. He now has to question his sanity and the crazy dreams he is having - how can he continue living this way?

His life is now confined to staying at home, the same mundane life, feeling sorry for himself, waiting for that call that never comes. Then one day he realises that all is not lost, his mind is now set, and he tells himself 'Yes I am on my way back!' Stepping out outside, it's the start of a new day, all is peaceful and calm, you don't need money for what you see and it's all for free.

Each song tells this story. 'Company Man' is not about my life, but maybe it could be yours? This, I believe, is the first time that a concept album has been compiled in blues format.

This is the blues - this is life, living in today's world - this is the fifth album from the Eric Street Band."
