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!

Lloyd Spiegel - This Time Tomorrow - New Release review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, This Time Tomorrow and it's quite good. Australian, Lloyd Spiegel's ninth release opens with Devil On My Shoulder, a rumbling blues rocker with a rough acoustic sound and swaggering edge. Backed by Tim Burnham on drums, and Arunachala on percussion, this track is solid. Spiegel handles lead vocal and guitars and his electric guitar soloing searing through the music like a hot sword gives it a smart balance. With a jazzy rhythm and stinging but muted guitar soloing, All The Cats Are Grey should have broad appeal with nice a melody for the ladies and clever guitar riffs for the dudes. Kansas City Katie has a cool Tex Mex flavor thanks to Spiegel's guitar work and his vocal phrasing quite reminds me of Glen Frey but his overall sound and feel is much more desirable. On rocker, Lost Like Me, Spiegel carries the melody broadly on his vocal shoulders with spanky guitar riffs reinforcements. Cure My Soul has a euro cafe sound with strong bass lines and a great melody. Lisa Sutton plays an outstanding trombone line in this track making it one of my favorites on the release. Excellent! Possibly the best radio song on the release is Into The Blue, joined by Riley Spiegel on guitar, with an almost Sting like feel and appeal. I'm not saying it sounds like Sting, but it has that same clean, inviting presence. Wrapping the release is a cool soulful track, Call You When I Get There. Spiegel is not only an accomplished guitarist and songwriter but a damn good singer as well. This release is so simple but yet so smooth. Really nice!
