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!

Patsy Thompson - Fabulous Day - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Fabulous Day, from Pasty Thompson and it's a solid radio release. Opening with title track, Fabulous Day, Patsy Thompson establishes the playing field and belts out a cool radio track. Backed by Chris Rolin and the illustrious, Red Volkert on guitars, Bruce Morrison on bass, Chris Meister on drums, Andy Smyth on piano, Mike Sarryshyn on fiddle and Bruce Boulton on steel guitar. Country flavored, Picking You Up, has a great feel, Volkert's deep fretted riffs set the track off nicely and the winding steel riffs of Boulton are a great accent. Latin flavored, Passion is one of my favorite tracks on the release with nice fiddle runs by Sarryshyn and nicely executed Spanish style guitar lead by Rolin. Another track with a solid country flavor is Joy Ride with a strong melody, nicely harmonized backing vocals, a nice guitar solo by Rolin and cool steel accents by Boulton. Wrapping the release is a bluesy country track, I Think About You,  with a healthy swing, cool bass lines, fiddle solo by Sarryshyn, another cool guitar solo by Volkkert. This is Thompson's best vocal effort on the release and a solid closer.
