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!

Bobby BlackHat - Put On Your Red Shoes - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Put On Your Red Shoes, from Bobby BlackHat and it's smooth and bluesy. Opening with I Smell Another Man On You, Bobby BlackHat Walters, takes the lead on vocal, backed by Brian Eubanks on bass, Tom Euler on guitar, Michael Behlmar on drums and Lucy Lawrence Kirkpatrick on keys. Larry Burwald's pedal steel slide work, complimented by Kirkpatrick's keys and Bobby's own harp work make for a nice opener. With a heap of R&B, ballad, This Grey Beard is strong with a good story line and memorable melody. Burwald's easy paced slide work and Tom Euler's articulate lead really gives this track a special feel. With a Latin rhythm, title track, Put On Your Red Shoes, has a great feel with lively drums and excellent guitar soloing. One of my favorite tracks on the release, Grim Reaper has a spacy, San Francisco blues sound with arpeggiated chords, solid vocals and smoking hot guitar and organ solos. Wrapping the release is another slow blues number, I Hear Mama's Voice, with really super vocals and really nice harp work by Bobby. Euler really steps up again on this track with gripping guitar lead and Kirkpatrick's piano work is soothing and balanced making this an excellent closer.
