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!

Eller Soul Records artists - Blue & Lonesome duo - Pacing the Floor - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Pacing the Floor by Blue & Lonesome duo (Li'l Ronnie & Gordon Harrower) and it's solid. Opening with Honeyboy Edwards' Drop Down Mama, Ronnie Owens on vocal, foot drum and harp and Gordon Harrower on vocal and guitar digging deep in fertile delta roots. Wine Headed Woman is a rumbling boogie with a driving guitar rhythm and strong harp chants. Very nice. On Muddy Waters' Mean Red Spider, Harrower's vocals are inspired and his guitar work spot on providing perfect balance for Owen's harp riffs. Original track, Too Fast For Conditions is a cool blues rocker with rich slide work by Harrower on resonator guitar and featuring Owens on harp. Super nice. Another original and title track, Pacing the Floor is a traditional boogie, stripped down with a solid guitar line and vocal by Harrower and harp soloing by Owens. This band really does create the magic of  Sonny and Brownie, Cephas and Wiggins or Siegel Schwall. Tight! Eddie Taylor's Country Boy has a super rhythm line with just the perfect amount of R&B. This is likely my favorite track on the release with just the right amount of everything. Super. Jimmy Roger's Out on the Road is another solid choice with some of Owen's fullest harp work on the release. Wrapping the release is another original, More Than Eye Candy featuring the vocal work of Owens with just the basics of guitar and foot drum, leaving you wanting more. A solid ending for a solid release.
