Eddie Baltimore: The Space Between

[cover art]

Eddie "Baltimore" Hutchison was a much loved musician on the Toronto Roots Music scene, who passed away in May 2004. He was also an award-winning producer/engineer, who recorded Garth and Maud Hudson in concert in Canada in September 2002 (the LIVE at the WOLF CD.)

Eddie Baltimore had virtually finished The Space Between when he died. His friends Lance Anderson and Bruce Longman did the final work and released it in October 2004. Garth Hudson plays on one of the tracks.

On The Space Between you'll find a rather more serious artist than the one you may remember from his contributions to Slowpoke CDs. In fact, his voice and delivery remind me of Randy Newman with his sly social commentary. Sometimes, as on "Cold Sidewalk", it's not sly at all. Notwithstanding Eddie's expertise in all kinds of roots music, more than half the songs here are straight blues led by a magnificent Robert Johnson-esque version of "She's a Spy". New Orleans is represented by the excellent "Bull Frog" accompanied only by Lance Anderson's piano. It would take too much space to list all the players but Jerome Godboo, David Raven and Bruce Longman shine throughout. Other fine songs are "Rock and a Hard Place", "Moonlight in Paradise" and the lovely "Winter Blues".
