Chocolate Fireguard Music Ltd. artist: Pat Fulgoni -Dark Side of The Blues - Live In Prague - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Dark Side of the Blues, Pat Fulgoni Live In Prague and it's a smoking cover of some of the top blues tracks that you know. Opening with Sonny Boy Williamson's classic, Help Me, Fulgoni on vocal gets this band rolling with Jan Martinek, Lukas Martinek and Richard Mader exchanging guitar riffs over the keys of Boris Secky and Jan Korinek, Brian Regan, Mick Reed, Vladimir Grunt on drums, and Leos Drabek, Robert Mader and Jason Riley on bass. On soulful, Hard Times, Fulgoni really turns on the heat and his guitar arsenal is right there with him creating a steamy, Ray Charles like feel and featuring Jim Corry on sax. Very nice. BB King's hit, the Thrill Is Gone gets a bouncy rework but without losing it's blues intensity. A real nice showcase for Fulgoni's vocals, the track actually seems to strut rhythmically as it rolls and the guitar intensity is tight. John Lee Hooker's boogie, Think Twice Before You Go sets a nice groove and Fulgoni's vocals are full and clipped giving it a bit of old blues, authentic feel. Good jam. Larry Davis' Texas Flood gets a pretty honest SRV cover by Fulgoni band with some real nice SRV style blues rock guitar riffs...sit back. Wrapping the release is a cover Robert Johnson's Crossroads, using pretty much of Cream's arrangement from the 60's. A great blues rocker and driving guitar anthem, this is a solid closer for a live concert release.
