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!

Bootleggin' The Blues - Leo Hull - New release Review


I just received a new release, Bootleggin' The Blues from Leo Hull. This is a 9 track all original track release.The recording opens with the title track, Bootleggin' The Blues. This song has a real traditional honky tonk/ JJW/ HWJ sound. Road Hard is another two steppin' country type song with some pretty tasty guitar riffs. Blowtorch Baby has more of a swing to it but sticks to the back roads roots . Whiskey and Women takes the next step toward rock with some pretty cool slide work. The Road, another 2 steppin' track may be the best track on the release. It has solid airplay hooks and country guitar pickin. Pistol #69 has the blues structure but really doesn't venture far off of the path set by earlier tracks. Hull doesn't try to sound like anyone else...he sounds like himself and that's good. Running Away Again is a pretty cool track following the straight early country / rock path set by his predecessors. Between You And Me is the biggest departure from the mainline set by the balance of the recording. It follows a standard blues format and has some pretty tasty blues riffs traded with organ. I would not suggest that this is a blues recording for everyone, but it is an interesting transitional cd for fans of JJW and Hank Jr. who want a little blues mixed in.
