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!

Paul Nelson - Over Under Through - new release review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Over Under Through, from Paul Nelson and it's interesting. Opening with Go Down Ezekiel, a floating track with solid but JJ Cale like vocals by Nelson, seductive slide work by Kevin Barry and tom tom by John Sands, this is a real nice opener. My choice for radio track on the release is Secret with a really nice melody and vocals and nicely interwoven guitar and steel guitar parts over light snare drum. My favorite track on the release is an interpretation of Johnny Cash's I Walk The Line with a remarkable arrangement, nice vocal harmonies with Kristin Cifelli, Ellis Paul and Nickie Fuller and reverb saturated guitar. Excellent! Lumbering rocker, Silent Majority, has a really nice feel with solid vocals and a super arrangement. This track, again with superior vocal qualities and rich guitar backing make it an ideal radio track. Wrapping the release is somber ballad, There Is Weeping, with Nelson singing upfront with only a minimal of rich guitar dressing. This is a really nice track and a solid closer for a solid release.
