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!

New Release - Tempered In Fire - Lisa Mills - Review

With a US release date of October 18, 2011 this may already be on the street. I just received a copy of the new Lisa Mills recording Tempered In Fire. If you don't know Lisa she is a Mississippi born vocalist moved to Glastonbury and now residing back in Mobile, Alabama. You can definitely hear the UK influence on her southern roots. This cd has some really strong tunes executed very well by Lisa. The overall tone of the cd is a crossover between the R&B, Blues and country. She has done particularly well renditions of Wet Willie's "Keep on Smilin' and Otis Redding's "These Arms of Mine" as well as a few tunes by others and originals as well.
