Isle of Manx – the Desert Island Collection (2010, Dog My Cat Records)

After releasing nine albums in nine years, it was high time for a “Best Of” CD. Featuring Harry on the 20-stringed Mohan Veena, acoustic slide guitar, lap steel, and banjo, this essential “desert island” collection contains fifteen tunes (thirteen original songs and two cover tunes) that represent the evolution of a highly unique musical style that fuses Eastern sounds, Western blues and acoustic folk.

“Manx has hand-picked the cream of his ‘mystic-ssippi’ catalogue for this celebratory anthology. Melding Eastern voicings and Indian scales with the blues has blown acres of unexplored territory wide open, and the guitarist has evolved an enthrallingly other-worldly vibe as a result. For those unaware of his work, this is a fine introduction to ‘indo-blues’.”
