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!

Booze Records artist: TG and the Swampbusters - Swamp Tooth Comb - New release review

I just received the newest release (January 13, 2015), Swamp Tooth Comb, from TG and the Swampbusters and it's bluesy, swampy and fun. Opening with Bayou Preacher, is an easy blues country rocker featuring Tim Gibbons on Lou Reed like vocal and guitar, Swampy Joe Klienfeltr on bass and Patch on drums. Who Wants To Dance With An Old Ding Dong? is a Jimmy Reed like blues rocker. Underloaded harp work and an electric guitar solo with a little country/rockabilly flair. Hey Poor Boy Hey is a cool Crossroads like track with a stripped down ZZ Top feel. Possibly my favorite track on the release. The Brooder is a raggedy rocker with a rough edge. I like this track and think it's the rough edges that I like the best. I always like it when a band doesn't try too hard to sound professional. Very cool! Country Side of Town is a country influenced rocker with a simple beat. Think JJ Cale. Cornpone again visits Lou Reed territory but with simple slide guitar and harp. Relaxed and bluesy. Hot Money is another good rocker. If you like that Keith and the Winos with loose rhythm and random solos this may be you gig. I like it! Play Me Some Blues & Keep It Country is an interesting blend of Grateful Dead and Steve Winwood. With it's basic blues format and simple guitar and harp riffs it is simple and direct. Wrapping the release is The Bone Of Contention, a simple rocker with simple yet tasty guitar riffs, Reed like vocals and simplicity. I like this release.
 It's not Joe Bonamassa... and that's good! (Nothing against Joe)
