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!

Mosher St. Records artist: the Joey Gilmore Band - Respect The Blues - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Respect The Blues, from the Joey Gilmore Band and it's quite good. Opening with deep blues, Man of My Word, Joey Gilmore breathes soul into this grabber with his super vocals and guitar joined by Robert Carter on bass, Raul Hernandez on drums, Maurice Dukes on drums, Sonny Boy Williams on keys and Ivan Chopik on guitar. On rolling shuffle, Can't Kill Nothin' Gilmore has a lot of characteristics of both BB and Albert. His guitar work is distinctly his own and cool. One of my favorite tracks on the release, Brownskin Woman, includes the harp work of Rockin' Jake. This track has a really nice feel with Gilmore showing his best on vocal and guitar. Very nice. Hi steppin', Livin' A Lie, features Edlene Hart on lead vocal and with just the right balance keyboard work by Williams is a real cruiser. Cajun flavored Livin' A Lie, penned by Beau Jocque sees a stinging guitar solo and warm organ work by Williams. Always one of my favorite tracks, Breakin' Up Somebody's Home, has a nice swagger, emphasized by Carter's solid bass work and backing vocals by Edlene Hart, Domino Johnson and Arlene Coutee and horn work by Yoel Hymas. Another track featuring the lead vocals by Hart is This Time I'm Gone For Good. With a solid bass line by Carter and tight guitar riffs, this track is really quite good. R&B track, Room 244 has a strong groove and Gilmore's vocals are prime backed by Hart and Johnson. Wrapping the release is Roosevelt Sykes' Night Time Is The Right Time. Featuring Hart and Gilmore on lead vocal and solid backing by Coutee and Johnson this is a strong closer.
