Man From Another Time

Album: Man From Another Time (2009)
  • songfacts ®
  • This is the title track from American bluesman Seasick Steve's fourth album.
  • On this track, Steve reflects back to the time when life was simpler. He told Uncut magazine that he's a bit bewildered by the stature he's acquired having found fame so late in his life. He explained: "I'm not trying to be modest, but three years ago, the odds against me doing any good would have seemed about four billion to one. And like I say in the song, I do feel lost in the new world. The only modern thing I want is a mobile phone – I've been sick a few times, so my wife won't let me travel without one."
