Wise and Otherwise
Juno Award Nomination for Best Blues Album Penguin Eggs Magazine/Edmonton Folk Festival Award for Album of the Year 2002 South Australia Blues Society Award for Album of the Year
Originally released in 2002 on the Northern Blues label, Wise & Otherwise is not only one of Harry’s best albums; it’s one of the best blues discs in recent years. Fans of the Mohan Veena will be charmed with this offering. The exotic instrument is the centre of the traditional song “Death Have Mercy”, as well as the perennial favourite ballad “Coat Of Mail”. Wise & Otherwise also features Harry’s unique version of The Thrill is Gone” where Manx successfully combines the classic blues track with a traditional Indian raga.
Harry Manx on vocals, six string lap slide guitar, mohan veena, banjo and harmonica Produced by Jordy Sharp
