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!

Hacienda Records artist: Hilda Lamas - Love Me Alone - New Release Review

I just received the newest release, Love Me Alone, from Hilda Lamas and it's a certain airplay success. Lamas 13 track effort is commercially strong featuring Lamas singing in front of a very studio tight band. I'll Be Gone has a bluesy swagger. No Meaning has a certain Latin rhythm sounding as if it could be a track right from a mcontemporary Santana release. Blues Man In A Three Piece Suit has a solid blues base and Lamas kicks dirt as she delivers with command. Over You has a R&B taste to it and again with harmonic vocals Lamas sells the goods. Nice Set Of Wheels sets off with a soulful strut. Lamas continues to demonstrate that she has the pipes to carry her own band. HeartStealer is another track with a strong Santana influence, hot guitar riffs and Latin percussion. On Take It Like A Woman, Lamas delivers a strong message and again shows critical signs of commercial talent. This is a very uniform release profiling Lamas as a front woman featuring her vocal skills and style. I believe that she has been successful in her efforts and believe that she will receive super accolades for her efforts. The band features Mike Gregory on Keys, Jesse Flores and John Liberto on guitars, Tom Engle on bass and Ernest Ruiz on drums.
