The Damn Truth can be found Now Or Nowhere A thoroughly enjoyable romp through blues-infused rock and always with a hint of quality 70s rock that, let’s be honest, we (nearly) all yearn for.
Paul Gilbert turns up the Shredded Heat on Werewolves in Portland the album has more shred than a Robertson’s factory with melody
Scott McKeon awakes on New Morning with 5 Doodle Paws - A Stupendous blues guitar masterclass that may not be to every blues lovers taste as it leans heavily toward instrumentals…but to a blues guitar lover, it is an essential addition to my collection and, I would suggest, yours too.
James Oliver Band is Goofin’ Around (the years) bang up to date retrospective from James Oliver that sparkles anew. If you like rockabilly played with panache, reverence, humour and six string skills, you’ll love this; plus, the reworking of Red House is worth the entry fee on its own
Lisa Mann is but isn’t an Old Girl she is a superb bassist - Four Doodle Paws - Not quite as much blues as I was hoping for but this is a high quality blues infused EP that, if you don’t know Lisa, is a damn good starting point.
Trio of Four Paw delights from Bedford, Boddy & Woodbury. Blues found in Good To Go - Friends of Tuesday and World's Gone Crazy
LEVARA show their heritage on the self-title debut Melodic Rock lovers will lap this up and, when the pandemic passes and the band hit the road, I have a feeling they will be even better live.
Blues Guitarists make the six strings sing - Wonderful blues albums from Crooked Eye Tommy, Eric Johansen and Dudley Taft
Kirsten Thein delivers Two Sides of Quality Blues so much to enjoy; plenty of tasty guitars and vocals blend into a very strong album.
Laura Tate sings blues Live From El Paso a great listen & captures a fine performance & the class band behind her it only lacked a few more true rockers for me, but if you like the jazz/blues/country mix that she delivers so well, then you’ll love this
