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!

Yep Roc Records artist: Tony Joe White - Bad Mouthin' - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release (September 28, 2018), Bad Mouthin', from legendary songwriter and performer, Tony Joe White and its very cool. Opening with title track, Bad Mouthin' , with it's Jimmy Reed feel, White has his classic vocal style on a stripped down format of guitar, drums and harp. Joe William's Baby Please Don't Go is up next and White shows how natural a fit he is for raw blues with his basic guitar, harp and foot pat behind his able vocals. Very nice. John Lee Hooker's Boom Boom has a bit more depth with electric bass and guitar. White does a real nice cover of this track with raw energy and gritty harp and grinding electric guitar gives it a nice edge. One of my favorite tracks on the release is Rich Woman's Blues with it's down low pace, execution and vocals. Super. Awful Dreams has a strong Hooker feel as well not in structure but in execution with tight little guitar runs and firm vocals. Very nice. Up tempo blues track, Down The Dort Road Blues, has a driving guitar/drum rhythm and soulful vocal and harp. Wrapping the release is Elvis' Heartbreak Hotel relying more on real feel with only acoustic guitar and a bunch of hip swivel. White performs quietly, but his feelings are there. Very nice.
