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!

Blonde on Blonde Direct artist: Dave Thomas - Road To The Blues - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Road To The Blues, by Dave Thomas and it's a solid blues rock release. Opening with title track, Road To The Blues, Dave Thomas on lead vocal and guitar keeps it simple with a basic shuffle backed by Steve Jinks on bass and drums and James Goodwin on piano. Up tempo shuffle, Eye On The Money, has a lighter feel with cool guitar runs by Thomas and with the add of Michael Smith and Phil Marshall on sax, this track swings. Slower blues ballad, Another Girl is my favorite track on the release with soulful vocals by Thomas and really nice piano work by Goodwin. With a velvety pace and perfect piano phrasing, this track is tops. On After All These Years, a modern presentation of delta style blues, Thomas on guitar and vocal and backed by Gareth Tucker on harmonica and Jinks on bass and drums stretches a little on electric guitar giving the release just a little blues juice. Wrapping the release is Chuck Berry's, Memphis Tennessee with a more open, rural feel. Fluid acoustic guitar runs over interwoven acoustic work by Thomas really caps the release off nicely.
