CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

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!

Double L Records artist: Lloyd Price - This Is Rock and Roll - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, This Is Rock And Roll from Lloyd Price and it's a funky R&B party. Opening with high stepper, I'm Getting Over You, Price, Mr Personality, lays out a softer version of ZZ Tops classic boogie. Nobody Loves Anybody Anymore has a solid funk sound with plucky bass and tight horns.  R&B track, The Smoke has glistening keyboards and sounds like it could be straight off of a Johnny Guitar Watson release (sans JGW). Our World has a "Mayfield" feel with wah wah guitar rhythm and vocal blending.  Blues rocker, This Is Rock And Roll, is classic Jimmy Reed with scorching guitar work and clear piano roll under Price's solid vocals. The Four Tops' I Can't Help Myself gets a modern make over with solid bari sax soloing and female backing vocals. Fat's Domino's I'm Walkin' gets a power makeover ...big band swing style with a walking bass line, excellent sax work and rich backing vocals. Wrapping the release is Belly Movement, a track with a distinct middle eastern rhythm further elaborating on the theme with jazzier flute and modern bass techniques. Cool closer for an interesting release.
