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!

MC Records artist: The Lee Boys - Live On The East Coast - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Live On The East Coast, from the Lee Boys and it's terrific! Opening with funk laden spiritual track, In The Morning, Derrick and Keith Lee on lead vocal, Alvin Lee on guitar, Chris Johnson on screaming pedal steel, Alvin Cordy Jr, on funky bass and Earl Walker on drums. Excellent opener! On blues shuffle, Don't Let The Devil Ride, the band really gets humming with Johnson really winding it up. This band is tight. On classic R&B track, I'll Take You There, Derrick and Keith really get into a nice groove with a solid bottom by Cordy who also takes a nice walk of his own, leading to an extended guitar jam. Very nice. Alvin lays in some real nice riffs under the nicely harmonizing vocals of Derrick and Keith. Rick Lollar on lead guitar gives Testify a little smoke over a simmering hot vocal lead and driving bass runs of Cordy and of course the ever present pedal soloing of Johnson. Very cool! Wrapping the release is blues classic, You Got To Move done with strong gospel lines over a rock beat. Derrick and Keith sing in harmony and with a driving beat and with a flurry of guitar by Alvin and the addition of Isaac Corbett on harmonica this is a solid closer for a super release.
