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!

Cleopatra Records artist: Reverend KM Williams - The Real Deal Blues - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, The Real Deal Blues, from Reverend KM Williams and it's raw, enthusiastic and real. Opening with Baby, Please Come Home, Reverend KW Williams accompanies his solid vocals on a cigar box Diddley bow backed by drums. With it's 2 step rhythm, slide work and snappy pace, it's a cool opener. The Runaway Blues leans a little more toward a rock beat but with solid southern blues roots. Another track with clear rock influence is Ring In My Pocket. With just the right blend of rockin' rhythm and slide guitar, this is one of my favorites on the release. With a country western pace, Highway 666 is a cool track with sounds of the old west. Low slung, Shoulda Left This Town Blues, has a great feel with a cool bass line and multiple guitar lines. Very cool. Country rocker, Haunted House is another of my favorites with cool lyrics and tight guitar riffs over a snappy beat. Hi energy track, On My Way To Muskogee, has laser focus and unworldly slide sounds. Solid. Relaxed, country blues number, That's Why My Baby's Feelin' Blue, has a real nice melody as well as the most melodic guitar work on the release. An uptempo country blues, with heavy tom tom work, The Witch Queen Of New Orleans has a rockabilly swing. Working Man's Blues is a cool boogie with relentless slide work under William's solid vocals. The Funeral Blues has a familiar "Stray Cats" blues bar and a glassy guitar riffs. Very nice. Wrapping the release is acoustic track, Bad Boy Blues which is really terrific. With it's classic delta sound, this track could have been cut by Robert Pete Williams or John Lee Hooker. Super closer.
