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!

E-H Records artist: Eliza Neals - Black Crow Moan - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Black Crow Moan, from Eliza Neals and it's a tasty blues rock package. Opening with country flavored, Don't Judge The Blues, Neals on lead vocals teams up with Michael Puwal on slide guitar, and with light percussion by Brian Clune, getting the blood flowing. Bluesy, Why You Ooglin' Me really has a classic Joe Walsh slide feel and Neals slips into the pocket vocally with some of her best vocals on the release. Puwal's slide work is really nice and with the addition of keys by Neals, and with Clune on drums, cool rocker. Title track, Black Crow Moan is a bluesy ballad with solid vocals by Neal and a strong guest appearance by Joe Louis Walker on guitar and with Skeeto Valdez on drums and John Abraham on bass.  Big Mama Thornton's Ball and Chain is one of the definite highlights on the release with super vocals by Neals and featuring Derek St. Holmes who lays down some exciting riffs on guitar. With Jeff Fowlkes on drums and Jason Kott on bass, this track is tight. Wrapping the release is Neals original track, Hey, Take Your Pants Off, a strong rocker and a super closer with a straight up rock beat by Fowlkes and Holmes with a driving rock guitar lead. Super closer.
