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!

Hog Heaven Records artist: The Mighty Soul Drivers - I'll Carry You Home - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, I'll Carry You Home, by the Mighty Soul Drivers, and its a cool blend of soul and blues. Opening with the Temptations', I Can't Get Next To You, The Mighty Soul Drivers use a strong arrangement crafted by Al Green and Savory Brown to give the track a rockier feel. With Bob Orsi on lead vocal and rhythm guitar, and cool backing vocals by Tanairy Barton, solid lead guitar work by Larry Willey, Tony Delisio on bass, River City Slim on drums, Steve Donovan, John Smayda on sax and Neil Tint on horns, this is a cool opener. On hi stepper, A Little Bit of That, Willey, Smayda and Tint set the ground work, over a great bass line by Delisio and organ by Donovan. Orsi's lead vocal and supple solos by Smayda, Tint and Donovan give this track the octane to be the top radio track on the release. Very nice. Solomon Burke's deep soul track, Cry To Me, really works nicely with Orsi's lead vocal surrounded by Donovan on keys and leaves a nice opening for Smayda on sax. Very cool. Larry Willey gets his chance up front with a cool lead guitar solo on Cold Cold Night. With it's funky rhythm and horn punctuation by Smayda and Tint, another great addition. Wrapping the release is Dressed To Kill,  a strut with great paced vocals and a tight drum rhythm.  Smayda sets up a cool sax solo backed by Delisio on bass and the horns sway. This is an excellent closer for a solid release.
