I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, 10000 Feet Below, by Eliza Neals and it's quite cool. Opening with a pop blues number, Cleotus, featuring Eliza Neals on vocal and Howard Glazer on guitar and slide. A cool opener with solid roots. On Another Lifetime, Glazer lays down a real nice guitar intro for a steamy blues ballad. Neals' vocals are strong and Glazer's guitar work is tight, backed by Skeeto Valdez on drums, Paul Randolph on bass solid keyboard work by Neals. On rocker, Burn The Tent Down, Glazer's guitar work is raspy and overdriven, nicely complimenting Neals vocals. On boogie style track, You Ain't My Dog No More, Brian Clune leads the way on drums with John Abraham on bass and with hot slide riffs by Glazer, delivers a hot number with a Thorogood flavor. Very cool. A solid pop entry, Cold Cold Night features Paul Nelson on guitar and nicely blended vocals not unlike Buckingham Nicks. Unbridled guitar playing is the ticket on Hard Killing Floor, an original Skip James track. With a contemporary blues rock styling and Neals' own organ and vocal treatment, this track stands tall. Downhill On A Rocket has a solid melody, warm vocal backing and slick slide guitar work from Glazer making it easily the radio leader on the release. Stripped down blues track, Merle Dixon, has a overdriven guitar vamp and guitar soloing juxtaposed against Neals' smoothly blended vocals. Very cool. Wrapping the release is At The Crossroads featuring Billy Davis on guitar and some really nice vocals by Neals. This is a really nice conclusion to a solid release.
