CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

New Release by Tip Of The Top - From Memphis to Greaseland - Review


I have just receiver a copy of the new release by Tip Of The Top called From Memphis To Greaseland. You like traditional Chicago style blues...this thing smokes! The release is made up of 13 original and cover tracks. This recording really gets that Chicago sound down and doesn't overplay. It sounds fresh and vibrant. Little Johnny Lawton goes a great job on vocals and has great guitar style. Akarsha "Aki" Kumar blows a mean harp and the rhythm section (Frank DeRose on bass and Carlos Velasco on drums) are tight. They have special guests including Johnny "Cat" Soubrand and Chris "Kid" Anderson guitars as well as Sid Morrison piano. This entire recording is very tight and these guys swing. This may be the freshest Chicago style blues recording that I have heard in a while. I have no problem suggesting this to anyone for a good dose of original Chicago blues.
