I’ve been following Joe for a number of years now and his live performances are always scintillating, none more than this carnival of British Blues.

Steve Hill – The One-Man Blues Rock Band (Manhaton Records)

I’ve always thought it brave of bands to release live albums but a one-man band? No wiggle room but Hill breezes it from the Blues Rock opener, Rhythm All Over to the finale, a fine cover of Voodoo Chile (Slight Return). It’s not just Blues Rock (Dangerous and Never Is Such A Long Time), but Delta Blues…

Teresa James and the Rhythm Tramps – Here In Babylon (Jesi-Lu Records)

Houston native and LA resident James opens with I Know I Ain’t Been So Perfect; that’s questionable! The title track shows their class, no histrionics, just good music, well played.

James’ vocals are the star and the effectively excellent Rhythm Tramps back her perfectly, particularly on…
