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!

CD Woodbury - World's Gone Crazy - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, World's Gone Crazy, from CD Woodbury, and it's rich with vocal harmonies, blues rock sounds. Opening with Follow The River Home, a solid southern blues rock track with a great vocal blended intro, CD Woodbury is off to a terrific start. With Don Montana on drums and lead vocal, Patrick Mc Danel on bass and backing vocal and Mike Maring on keys and backing vocal, Woodbury on lead vocal and guitar rounds out this tight unit. I Didn't Know is a driving rocker with a hot bottom and features some screaming sax by Maring. Emerald City Blues is a strong blues ballad with a solid melody and ripping lead guitar making it a certain crowd favorite. South Of South Hill is a real nice jam rocker with intricate drum beats and a classic blues guitar riff. One of my favorite tracks on the release is Can't Eat That Stuff No More a clever shuffle with casual vocal and nicely crafted rhythms. Willie Dixon's Wang Dang Doodle gets a hi energy boogie beat with driving guitar and bass. Woodbury and Maring each take cool solos capping off a gritty blues track. Great remake. Hendrix's Hey Joe also gets a bluesy cover here with Maring and Woodbury each getting nice whacks at the solo apple. This is a real nice track second only to the original and possibly Roy Buchanan's cover and that's saying something. Wrapping the release is Preacher and the President , a cool blues rocker with a grinding guitar rhythm, organ richness and percussive vocals. Maring takes a cool solo on organ and Woodbury on guitar leaving you wanting more.
