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!

Old Pal Records artist: Hank Mowery - Account To Me - New Release Review

I just received the newest release, Account To Me, by Hank Mowery and it's a classic blues rocker. Opening with Spend A Little Time, Mowery has the room jukin and rollin with a classic track. Account To Me, a newly discovered Gary Primich track, features Mowery on vocal and harp and ansl showcases Troy Amaro with classic blues tremolo riffs. Put The Hammer Down has a distinct Primich sound with a touch of Everlys and a touch of rockabilly. Amaro really lays down some clean guitar riffs on this track and Mowery follows through with great harp riffs. Chicago blues style track, If I Knew What I Know, really digs in to the grit and Mowery not only sounds great on harp but delivers some of the best vocals on the track. With classic Chicago style delivery and instrumentation including Patrick Recob on bass, John Large on drums and Amaro on guitar, this is certainly one of my release favorites. Banana Oil has a Latin Beat and features Chris Corey on B3. Mowery takes a really nice ride on harp on this track and shows a different side of the blues. Nice! Another Primich track, Tricky Game, has a New Orleans twist accented by crisp percussion from Large and piano from Corey. Mowery of course adds some really cool harp work on this track as well with smooth harmony vocals as well. Primich's, My Home, gives Amaro a chance to really play some hot tasty riffs on guitar nicely complimenting Mowery on vocal. The harp work is smooth as silk and the Texas lope of this track sets up great fret work in solo position as well. Pray For A Cloudy Day, another Primich track is a fitting, laid back blues track for addition to this cool release, a collaboration with the Primich family. A driving boogie, Target, written by Primich's former bass player, gives the players a loose structure in which to jam. Finishing up with an unexpected finger style blues by Rev. Robert Wilkins, That's No Way To Get Along, the band featuring Jimmie Stagger on vocal and National and of course Mowery on harp. Very nice!
