Blind Racoon/Earwig Music artist: Tommy McCoy - Late In The Lonely Night - New Release Review

I just got a copy of the new Tommy McCoy release, Late In The Lonely Night. McCoy has worked in the past with such names as Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, Commander Cody, Lucky Peterson and the Double Trouble rhythm section but here McCoy teams up with his own band, Big Al Razz on bass and Pug Baker on drums. McCoy plays a contemporary style of rock blues pushed by a strong base and stinging guitar riffs. he wrote 9 of the 11 tracks on this release. Late In The Lonely Night is the release opener with soul style blues in the vein of Robert Cray. Karyn Denham contributes vocal lead to Never Shoulda Listened and Liz Pennick does some really nice piano work as well. Language Of Love is a cool funky blues and possibly the best track on the cd. It features some nice backing female vocals as well as some smart guitar riffs by Mc Coy. Dance Your Pants Off is a straightforward blues rocker that has strong commercial airplay opportunities. McCoy demonstrates his guitar acuity and the song moves along really well with great sax honkin' by Bob Saccente in the mix. The release is wrapped up by My Guitar Won't Play Nothing But The Blues, a clever slow loper which gives McCoy another chance to demonstrate his flare on guitar.
