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!

Best Side Records artist: OSLU - Another Token - New Releaase Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Another Token, from OSLU (Our Little Secret Underground), a modern blues/rock recording project based in the UK and it's cool. Opening with Andy Lewis original, Julian, a smart piano. Lewis does a nice job in the writing and execution. Solid opener. One of my favorite JJ Cale tracks, Crazy Mama get only the slightest of modifications with wah wah guitar soloing as well. Very nice. A straight up 12 bar slow blues, Blues For Embassy gives Lewis an opportunity to stretch a bit on the fretboard with Clapton inspired riffs over organ and his own more polished vocal style. JB Lenoir's I Want To Know, is a great guitar shuffle with Charles Grassot, somewhat in the style of Skip James. I like this track. Maybe my favorite on the release. Su Kirby-Clarke is featured on lead vocal on Jane's Return and the strength of the track is her vocal richness. Very nice. Wrapping the release is a Lenoir reprise, I Want To Know, with  Grassot on vocal, traditional acoustic blues guitar duet riffs and solid vocal. Super closer.
