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!

Dale Bandy - Blue. - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Blue., from Dave Bandy and it's solid. Opening with super nasty, My Bad Reputation, Dale Bandy creates a great feel (think Cocker's Black Eyed Blues)  on drums, guitar, keys and lead vocal, and Gary Thompson on bass. Excellent opener. R&B soaked, If I Could Only Take It Back, is solid with soulful vocals and guitar by Bandy. Updated and funky, Big Legged Woman is a great hi stepper with a poppy bass line and hot sax work by Joe Bolero. Bandy's guitar lyric and bass lines on The Thrill Is Gone work nicely together accentuating the soulful vocals lines. Jazzy Comin' Down is heavy bass driven with slick guitar riffs giving it a nice kick. Bandy wraps the release with traditional blues, Trouble In Mind, showing his fluid blues riffs as accompaniment to his vocals. Solid closer to this interesting release.
