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: Too Slim & The Taildraggers - Brace Yourself (Live) - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Brace Yourself (Live), from Too Slim & The Taildraggers, and it's a concert full of butt kicking, country blues based rock. Opening with Mississippi Moon, Tim "Too Slim" Langford on guitar and vocal cranks this dude up with Zach Kasik on bass and vocal and Jeff "Shakey" Fowlkes on drums and vocals. Devil In A Doublewide has the straight up country rock feel that is prevalent in "country" music today. With a solid melody, cool vocal hook,  rock guitar riffs and a driving beat...can't miss. Bluesy, My Body, has a haunting undertone and working with the solitary guitar wail of Langford and the cool drum chant of Fowlkes  and the bass counter of Kasik is my favorite track on the release. Another track with a heavy blues rock feel is Blood Moon with it's heavy bottom, droning bass line and wailing guitar work. Landford really works this track with strong vocal and melodic lead guitar, supplemented by the sound that I would associate with Jimi or Trower. I really like this track and it's heavy rock approach. Excellent! Wrapping the release is Good Guys Win with it's hard driving beat and heavy guitar laden sound. There's only one way to close out a high energy release and Langford has that covered here. Solid closer.
