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!

Vin Mott - Rogue Hunter - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Rogue Hunter, from Vin Mott and it's solid. Opening with blues rocker, Car Troubles Made Me A Good Blues Singer, Vin Mott leads off his sophomore release with fat harp tone and strong vocals. Joined by Dean Shot on slick and nicely stylized guitar, Steve Kirsty on bass and Matt Niedbalski on drums, this is a super opener. Title track, Rogue Hunter is right down Elmore James way with tinny slide work by Shot andfat fat harp tone from Mott. Very cool. Boogie track, Ice Cold Beer has a great walking bass line by Kirsty and with lead vocal by Mott, we have gang backing vocals by the band. This is a great boogie with solid harp work and a cool guitar solo and one that should get solid airplay. One of my favorite tracks on the release is Paterson Is Crumblin', a slow sensuous blues. Opening with soulful harp wailing, this track is hot. Mott's vocals are terrific and Shot's guitar lead is crisp and essential. This is an excellent track by most any standards. Wrapping the release is Greaser, a terrific harp jam over the basic chords of Link Wray's Rumble. Plenty of reverb, a solid beat and smoke soaked harp...this is a winner and an excellent closer for a real cool release.
