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!

Ruf Records artist: Omar and The Howlers - Essential Collection - New Recording Review

I have been reviewing the new Omar & The Howlers, Essential Collection and that's exactly what it is. Ruf Records has set a February 14 release date for this 2 disc set for Omar and the gang. The twin disk set contains one disk called Best Of and another called Omar's Picks. The Best Of contains 15 tracks including some of my favorites, East Side Blues, a stormy slow blues with great vocals and instrumental appeal as well as fan favorites Mississippi Hoo Doo Man,Big Chief Pontiac, Monkey Land, Boogie Man and of course the blues infused You Made Me Laugh and Jimmy Reed Highway.

Disk 2, Omar's Picks, another 15 tracks opens with cool track I Want You and continues with some just terrific tracks such as Burn It To The Ground, Alligator Wine, I'm Wild About You Baby, Life Without You and concludes with Omar's take on Built For Comfort.

This is a well planned out "Essential Set" with a mixture of Live and studio tracks and it is essential for all Omar and the Howlers fans as well as anyone who isn't as familiar with the band as a great full sampler.
