MARK CAMERON BAND – Live At Blues On The Chippewa (Cop Records LPM-1678)

 

Minneapolis based singer, guitarist, songwriter and bandleader Mark Cameron started out playing folk-rock in the 70s, but for many years he has focussed on the blues. He has been building a solid reputation, particularly over the last couple of years. The Mark Cameron Band is a five piece, with the leader’s strong and flexible vocals backed by the expected line-up of guitar, harmonica, bass and drums (Cameron, Bill Keyes, Scott Lundberg and Dan Schroeder…

Maybe Believe is the third full-length recording by the Jon Stickley Trio. Like before, the music is hugely innovative as Jon Stickley (flat-pick guitar) and fellow instrumental wizards, Lyndsay Pruett (violin)…

DICKEY LEE —NEVER ENDING SONG OF LOVE — ASHES OF LOVE (Hux Records)

I wasn’t too sure what to expect from this collection. For some reason I hadn’t heard in depth, the early country releases from Dickey Lee other than a little later in his career. It was at the time of…

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…

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…
