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!

Coffee Street Records artist: Lew Jetton & 61 South - Palestine Blues - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Palestine Blues from Lew Jetton & 61 South and it quite good. Opening with country fused blues track, Will I Go To Hell, Lew jetton establishes firm footing on lead vocal and guitar joined by Erik Eicholtz on drums, Otis Walker on bass and J.D. Wilkes on harp. Super. Oh My My reaches more into the blues rocker arena with a powerful bottom and grinding bass and guitar rhythm. Jetton lays out simple yet powerful riffs making the track feel rock solid. R&B track, For The Pain, is in the Otis Redding giving Jetton a firm stage to show off his soulful vocals. One of my favorite tracks on the release is Mexico with it's Keith Richards like guitar riff. A super rocker. Slow blues ballad, Drinking Again, has sweet jazz chords and again nice vocals by Jetton, backed up by a tight lead guitar solo over warm chords. Very nice. A stinging guitar solo by Jetton on what is a remarkably understated track really sets Don't Need No Devil apart. Another of my favorite track is Christ Have Mercy with it's heavy ZZ Top like bottom and super vocals/guitar wall. Very cool! Wrapping the release is shuffle track, Bout Time, with it's cool guitar rhythm, Elmore James style riffs and rocking vocals. A super closer for a real cool release.
