REVEREND PEYTON’S BIG DAMN BAND —FRONT PORCH SESSIONS (Thirst Tigers)

 

One of the most noticeable aspects of Rev Peyton and his Big Damn Band’s music is the high intensity as the band and the Reverend lay down a selection of big-bodied, raw country blues. Powered by restless slide guitar the listener is drenched in honest as the day is long country…

BOBBY MESSANO – Bad Movie (Prince Frog Record Company BM1-41517)

Bad Movie_CoverArt

 

Guitarist, singer and bandleader Bobby Messano has many years experience of working with rock artists like Steve Winwood and country artists like Jimmy Wayne and Rodney Atkins. Yet in his own right he is known as a contemporary blues artist, and certainly the first few tracks here point to him as an accomplished blues-rocker, with an influence from the British blues-boomers of the late 60s, and Jimi Hendrix (try ‘Why Water A Dead Rose’ for the latter). The vast…

JERRY LEE LEWIS –TOGETHER * LIVE AT THE INTERNATIONAL, LAS VEGAS * IN LOVING MEMORIES – THE JERRY LEE GOSPEL ALBUM * KEEPS ROCKIN’ (BGO Records) 2 CDs

 

www.bgo-records.com

 

Four LPs on two cds make great value, especially when you take it into account you not only have the ‘killer’ Jerry Lee Lewis but also his sister, Linda Gail Lewis. Linda when asked, performed good ol’ southern country soul (and gospel) and the sass to go with it! Such is the chemistry between the 

siblings I am prompted to question why didn’t they do more together. Or why…

ONE FOUR SIX ONE —WHERE THE FIRES ARE (Self-released) 4-Track EP

 

Leeds based 5-piece One Four Six One are a hugely talented set of aspiring musicians, and who have already stacked up an interesting history. The boys have not only ventured to the other side of the pond to perform live but record. Not bad for a fledgling act.  

 

Musically, they hit the…

DAVIS COEN – These Things Shall Pass (Soundview SP 1008)

These Things Shall Pass

 

Here’s a varied CD of inspirational sacred music, covering a wide range of styles from traditional country spirituals ‘What A Friend We Have In Jesus’ and ‘Old Rugged Cross’ and the pure country cover of the title track (previously covered by Johnny Cash and Hank Snow) to the Memphis soul-inflections of former Jackson Southernaire Willie Banks & The Messengers’  ‘Working For Jesus’ and the vintage rhythm and blues sound of 'Lord, Let Me Do Right' via…

JIM ROBERTS AND THE RESONANTS – Beneath The Blood Moon (KKP Records)

Right from the opening notes of the title track, there is no doubt that this is going to be a fine Southern rock styled set, with plenty of blues influence, and Jim’s own droning cigar box guitar establishing a low-down dirty mood. Then Mike Finnigan’s Hammond organ comes in and everything moves up another notch. Though Jim is based in Los Angeles, he has been around since the 1970s and this outfit was previously known as The Jack Roberts Harvey Band.. He has a…

NICOLETTE LARSON —NICOLETTE * IN THE NICK OF TIME * RADIOLAND (BGO Records) 2CDs

 



 



www.bgo-records.com

 

Nicolette Larson was one of the finest vocalists of her day.  The three albums that make up this release come from 1978, 1979 and 1980, and with her perfect tones well suited for pop, soft rock radio Larson was a most popular lady. For not only did she make accomplished albums, but she was also a top-line backing vocalist. Used by everyone from Hot Axton to Neil…
