Night Bluemers - Welcome Aboard The Midnight Train - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Welcome Aboard The Midnight Train, from Night Bluemers, and it's a cool blend of rock, pop and blues. Opening with Poor Me, a pop rocker, Normand Beleveau is up front on lead vocal and guitar, backed by Sebastien Cloutier on bass, Jacques Livernoche on drums,  Pierre Verville on keys and Christian Gamache on guitars. Latin R&B fused Take Me to the Other Side has a lot of Ray Charles and a great rhythm. This track really moves with really tight drum rhythms and great vocals by Beliveau and some wild guitar soloing by Cloutier. Dr. Blues really gets down in slow blues with an excellent guitar solo and prime B3 and piano by Guillaume Marchand. Blues rocker, Obey has a super, upbeat tempo and solid blended vocals. A rockin' shuffle track with hot guitar riffs by Beliveau and Gamache make this one of the top tracks on the release.  The intro of Mississippi Fred McDowell's You Got To Move, gets a modern rework with a cool lope. The addition of soulful vocals by Dawn Tyler Watson with Beliveau and a funkier body with strong blues guitar riffs, supported by Marchand on B3 gives this track definite radio power. Very nice. Wrapping the release is a rocking remake of Arthur Crudup's That's Alright. Beliveau makes this track so much his own that if it wasn't so big a hit for Presley, you'd think it was his. Cool piano work by Marchand and Boudreau on bass make this a solid closer for a solid release.
