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!

Bible and Tire Recording Company artist: the Dedicated Men of Zion - The Devil Don't Like It - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, The Devil Don't Like It, by the Dedicated Men of Zion and it's really strong. Opening with Lord Hold My Hand, I am immediately thinking this may be the best opening track on any new release I've heard this year. The Dedicated Men of Zion, Anthony Daniels, Antwan Daniels, Marcus Sugg and Dexter Williams really have this track chugging. Backed by Will Sexton on guitar, Matt Ross-Spang on guitar, Mark Edgar Stuart on bass and Al Gamble on organ, these guys are on fire. Rock My Soul is another terrific track with excellent soulful lead vocal and rich, deep background vocals. God's Got His Eyes on You is a strong revival style gospel track that is high in energy and full vocal blending. R&B track, I'm Going Home has a firm bass line setting the pace and strong lead vocal and blues guitar riffs by Sexton and warm organ work by Gamble gives this track pure radio appeal. Wrapping the release is soulful ballad, I'm A Soldier in God's Army. These vocals ooze emotion and the overall track is very powerful making it an excellent closer for a really good release.

Stony Plain Records artist: The Hogtown Allstars - Hog Wild - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Hog Wild, from The Hogtown Allstars and it's super. Opening with New Orleans flavored, Mr. Lucky, featuring Chuck Jackson on lead vocal, Gary Kendall on bass, Pat Carey on sax, Teddy Leonard on guitars, Howard Moore on trumpet, Jim Casson on drums and featuring super piano work by Tyler Yarema on piano and backing vocals by Quisha Wint, Jill Zadeh and Selena Evangeline. Shuffle, Real Good Night has a party feel with solid horn backing by Carey and Moore and prominent placement by Wint, Zadeh and Evangeline. Moore lays in a real nice guitar melody on this track but this tune really is prime for airplay. Subway Casanova is one of my favorite tracks with it's swampy, funky rhythm and great slide work by Leonard. Chicago style blues, Biscuits and Beans is stripped down with Jackson on vocal and harmonica and Leonard on guitar. This is as pure and simple as it gets. Very nice. Wrapping the release is I Ain't Lyin' a driving boogie. With Jackson, Kendall and Moore on vocal and the music being carried by Yarema, Kendall and Casson with some real nice horn work by Carey this is a solid closer for a strong release.
