“All One” is the starting title of “Slow Turtle Sundance”. Ralph’s voice is absolutely enthralling and sensitive from the very start. Magician Ralph puts an absolute positive spell on you and additionally by his guitar-artistry. Hell of a blues with a great “Indian Spirit”. The absolute peak of the cd. More songs like this, or a whole cd with such phenomenal spirit-blues, please Ralph!!! By “Crazy Boy Wants to Sing the Blues” & “Whole Lotta Courage” Ralph is in the mood for good ole rock’n roll with a modern , fresh attitude and off course a buckshot of blues. “Sail Your Ship”; “ Surrender” & “Girl” are three extraordinary, empathetic ballads creating a love-romance merrymaking by the first and a melancholy mood by the two consecutive titles. Maestro Ralph as storyteller by excellence and finest, virtuoso fingerpickin’ guitar solos, featuring even a classical notch. “Heartache Man” sets you on fire for funky and wild dancing. The title song “Slow Turtle Sundance” features Ralph as slide-daredevil on dobro. By tunes it is a captive blues’n roller and by chant Ralph de Jongh is starry. “Sweet Operator” has captive calypso rhythms – a song to keep the depressive winter’s blues depression away, or to dream by closed eyes and imagination of a caribbean sea-cruise enjoying the hot sun and some finest rum-cocktails… Hey Keith Richards listen to “Right Here; Right Now”! The crazy Dutchie Ralph would be the congenial master of chant for your next cd solo-output and he will duel you on axe, too… For lovers of classic rock the 70’ies style “Pin Up Girl” is the deal. “Battle Against Our Own Light” is a good time honky-tonkin’ roller with a bluesy and even jazzy spice-up. By Louisiana cuisine you would entitle it a Hot Demoniac Gumbo. Ralph is by chant the good-humored hoodoo-professor. By the final “Merry Christmas” as conclusion he is your personal Christmas-boogie-rockin’ “Sinterclaas” or “Papa St. Nick” or “Papa Noël“ or “Weihnachtsmann” or “Вайхнахтсманн (Father Frost) wherever you are… By the joyous melodies Krampus and all the bad and evil demons will hyde and creep back to their vault.
“Hallelujah” & “Amen”!
