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!

Lady "A" - Loved, Blessed & Blues - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Loved, Blessed & Blues from Lady "A" and it's quite good! Opening with the title track, Loved, Blessed & Blues Lady "A" (Anita White) is joined by Dexter Allen on guitar, bass and piano and Joey Robinson on keys and drums for a cool bluesy swing with nice harmonies. With a bit of James Brown push on guitar, Honey Hush (A Tribute to Elnora) has a real nice groove with a strong bass line. On blues ballad, Don't Let Your Blues Become A Crime, Lady "A" really steps up with a lot of tension. Warm organ work really coaxes Lady "A" out and her lead vocals paired with Allen's vocals are super. Excellent! Another of my favorite tracks on the release is Love Calling with a strong radio hook. It's lyrics are clever and it's melody and harmonies are smooth. Allen's guitar work is clean and inciting. Getting down in the Texas style blues, Happy, is a cool track with horn backing and some guitar swat. Lady "A" grinds on the blues vocally really hitting her stride. Allen joins on lead vocal and in duet making this another of my favorites on the release. Dance track, Take Me Back To Seattle, has a great strut and interesting melodic blending, dressed by funky keys and bass. A dynamic Somebody Here Needs You Lord, is the final track on the release and I really like it! Pure vocal lead and pure gospel styling sets an incredible stage for this one and mixed harmonies complimented by just the right amount of keys and guitars and strong bass and drums makes this a killer closer. Excellent!
