Jon Amor Blues Group – Jon Amor Blues Group (Six Six Records).
Jon Amor, formerly of The Hoax, has returned to his blues roots for this eponymous album. Opening with the gritty blues rock of Holy Water the band then serves up Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters inspired blues in the shape of Juggernaut, Make It Your Trouble and Repeat Offender, the latter of the three being a grungy pleasure. There are riffs overflowing on the R&B/Blues crossover of Sweetheart and the rocker Angel In A Black Dress. Blues rock continues on The Underdogs and She Thought I Was An Eagle but it’s the pared down gritty, slow blues of When Your Time Comes that stands out. They close with a straight down the line rocker, You Know It’s Only Love. I can’t wait for the next one!
