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!

Juicy Baby Records artist: Bobby Kyle - It's My Life - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, It's My Life, from Bobby Kyle and it's a cool, R&B style rocker. Opening with Johnny Copeland's Daily Bread, Bobby Kyle shows his unique styling in vocal and guitar, backed by Everett Boyd on bass, Joel Perry on guitar, Marc Copell on drums, and Dave Keyes on keys. Driftwood has an almost Allman feel is their early, era. Kyle's vocals are solid and Keyes' accordion work gives it a totally different sound. Soul ballad, Highway Man, is one of my favorite tracks on the release with smooth pace, tension and solid horn backing by Laron Land on tenor sax, Alex Harding on bari sax, and James Smith on trumpet. Radio strong track, Blood From A Stone, is another of my favorites with solid soul roots and super horn backing. Sax solos from Land and Harding as well as a nice trumpet line from Smith give this track a cool edge.  Eddie Kirkland's I've Got My Bloodshot Eye's On You is a simple acoustic blues number with Kyle and Perry on guitar, Joey Simon on harp and solid vocals by Kyle. Tripping Out is a real nice R&B track with a light Latin flavor. Copell's percussion work along with Keyes' tight key work really sets the stage for some of Kyle's best vocals on the release. Wrapping the release is Robert Jr. Lockwood's Little Boy Blue performed by Kyle solo on resonator guitar and vocal. This is a super closer for a real enjoyable release.
