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!

Catfood Records artist: James Armstrong - Blues At The Border- new release review

I just got a pre release copy of copy of James Armstrong's new release called "Blues At The Border". (Release date December 6, 2011). I've listened to the cd about 3 times and it really is good. It has a really relaxed manner about it and it has a great bluesy swing. James has a smooth voice and plays really tasty guitar riffs over a tight rhythm section. The recording features 11 tracks which were all written by Armstrong or his production affiliates. Armstrong, a native of LA was born into a blues performing family and was performing at 8 and touring at 17. He has worked with Albert Collins, Keb Mo', Cooco Montoya, Roy Brown, Chaka Khan, Ricky Lee Jones, Jan and Dean, Mitch Mitchell and Tommy Castro to name a few. James is a real entertainer! This is a recording that you should check out!
