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!

Alligator Records artist: Anders Osborne - Three Free Amigos - New Release Review

I just received a copy of the new Anders Osborne EP release, Three Free Amigos. This will be available on Alligator records on February 12. The release opens with Marmalade, a reggae island pop track. This has strong commercial potential and should carry the release on it's own. It's Gonna Be OK is a songwriters song and very reminiscent of Neil Young from his Gold Rush period. It's a simple ballad but it's a well written and executed ballad. Never Is A Real Long Time, another quiet ballad, paints a acoustic photograph of Osborne's thoughts, joined by Maggie Koerne on vocal. This is a cool track. The title track, Three Free Amigos, my favorite track on the release has a freshness offered by new contemporary country music with none of the hype associated with pop music. Osborne is accompanied by bassist Carl Dufrene and drummer Eric Bolivar, Michael Burkhart on Hammond B3 organ, Johnny Sansone on harmonica and accordion and Billy Iuso on acoustic guitar. This is a really pleasing set of primarily acoustic music with a blend of musical styles. I think that it will make a lot of listeners very happy.
