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!

Fireplace Recordings artist: Tom Rodwell - Wood & Waste - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release (October 22, 2021), Wood & Waste, from Tom Rodwell and I really like it. English artist and writer Tom Rodwell, now living in New Zealand has completed this most recent work and it's diverse and interesting. Opening with Don't Be A Fugitive All Your Life is a cool mix of Hillcountry Blues styling and primitive rock. It's simple structure, which relly sets it on it's way is propelled by Rodwell and simple blues guitar riff and vocal, Chris O'Connor on drums and Jeff Henderson on bass drum. Very cool. Carry On is a simple straight up rocker with a solid radio melody. Henderson on bass drum and O'Connor work great with Rodwell's guitar environment and cool backing vocals by Colleen Davis. Blues rocker, Touch Me Like A Teddybear is a real interesting track with classic blues guitar riffs with a twist and overlayed guitar work making this one of my favorites on the release. With a Latin beat, a great percussive beat and Rodwell on synth, She Got Me Boiling is sure to be a favorite. It's danceability and smooth vocals are intioxicating. Small Town is a cool rocker with Phill Dryson on phased strat and Rodwell on guitar working up a really cool beat track. With simple lyrics, and featured guitar, it really puts me in mind of some early Blondie, Stones and Jeff Beck. Wrapping the release is Dead End Road with a euphoric blend of synth and guitar. This is a hard release to pigeon hole and it keeps yu guessing. Quite interesting...I like it!
