CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

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!

Bake It Black Records artist: Paul Dougherty - Monumental - The Songs of Tommy Dougherty - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Monumental - The Songs of Tommy Dougherty, by Paul Dougherty and it's a cool retrospective. Opening with ballad, Stars Above, Paul Dougherty, son of Tommy Dougherty has taken the task to redo a number of Tommy's songs, playing all instruments and singing. Blues rocker, Little Damn Dog, is up next with solid keys, raw guitar and solid vocals. With a light almost reggae feel, Fat Lady has a soothing feel and a cool "sax" solo adding to Paul's keyboard accompaniment and vocals. Another solid ballad, Cowgirl Song has a particularly nice melody with the addition of Paul Hilton on steel guitar. Roses For My Lady is another strong composition with Paul handling a full orchestral backing on keys. Wrapping the release is Mexico Beaches, another ballad with solid commercial appeal. Paul has done a nice job resurrecting his fathers music and reintroducing it to a new audience.
