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!

VizzTone Label Group artist: The Lucky Losers - Godless Land - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Godless Land, from the Lucky Losers and I think it's their best effort so far. Opening with R&B track, Half a Nothing, Cathy (Lemons) and Phil (Berkowitz) are back at it but this time with a different spin. With nicely placed harmonica by Phil and joined by Ian Lamson on guitars, Chris Burns on keys, Endre Tarczy on bass and DMar on drums, this is a super opener. Dr John composition, Be You has real radio appeal with a great melody and vocals , a solid rhythm and a strong rhythm. My favorite track on the release is Lemons' composition, My One Good Eye with some of Lemon's best vocal work, cool slide work by Lamson, nicely inserted harmonica phrasing by Phil and with the addition of Kid Andersen on mellotron and percussion. Very cool. Rich horn work by Michael Peloquin (sax) and Mike Rose (trumpet) sets a solid stage for Phil on lead vocals on bluesy ballad, The Good Fight. Wrapping the release is country western flavored, The Ragged Heart, with it's understated yet effective backing under Lemons' vocals. Nicely blended backing vocals and harmonica work by Phil and cool, faraway guitar wailing adds tension to the track. Cool closer.
