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!

Azuretone Records artist: Ray Fuller and the Bluesrockers - Long Black Train - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Long Black Train, from Ray Fuller and the Bluesrockers and it's a solid blues infused rockin romp. Opening with boogie, Burn Me Up, Ray Fuller on vocal and guitar leads the way with Myke Rock on bass, Darrell Jumper on drums, and Doc Malone on harp. This is an excellent opener with a lot of drive. Voodoo Mama is a modern day rocker with deep roots and contemporary links to CCR and ZZ Top. On hot rockin, Hip Shakin' Mama, Fuller kicks it up a few notches and with his slide blazing, has the essence of Hound Dog Taylor going. Very cool! Title track, Long Black Train, has a hard driving Chuck Berry flair and Fuller kicks it nice. Something' Shakin' is a solid 12 bar number with cool harp work by Malone. Fuller steps up big on this one with hot slide work in the flavor of Elmore James or Billy Gibbons. Very nice. Whiskey Drinkin' Woman has the strong foundation of Muddy and with it's Chicago sensibility and tight instrumental sensitivity, this track is a solid blues machine. Along the lines of Robert Johnson's Walking Blues, Pipeline Blues maintains a lot of the fundamentals that made Johnson on of the best blues men ever and with solid vocals, raw slide work and integral harp work, this track is hot. Wrapping the release is a flaming hot rocker, You've Got The Blues. This is my favorite track on the release with a hard driving beat, blues harp and sizzling guitar riffs. Excellent!
