Mud Slide Records artists: Delta Wires - if somebody told me... - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, if somebody told me..., by Delta Wires and it's a cool blues rocker. Opening with Can't Win For Losin', a Sonny Boy Williams based vamp, cranked up a bit with Ernie Pinata on harmonica and lead vocal, backed by Tom Gerrits on bass, Richard Healy on guitar, Tony Huszar on drums, David Bowman on trombone, John Christensen on trumpet, Caleb Murray on sax and Richard Sylvester on keys, a solid opener. On title track, if somebody told me... Pinata takes the tempo down giving Healy a real nice forum to show his guitar chops. On Lucille Bogan's Sloppy Drunk, Pinata kicks up the tempo and with a strong harmonica lead, and with Murray holding the rear, this track has a great feel. My favorite track on the release is Sonny Boy Williamson's Hand Outta My Pocket with an excellent pace and Pinata shining on harmonica and lead vocal and slick guitar retort by Healey. Wrapping the release is Basie's Blues In Hoss' Flat, a cool shuffle featuring Murray, Christensen and Bowman on full horn intro. Christensen takes the first solo leg on trumpet with a clean attack. Bowman milks out a real cool trombone solo followed by a Muted Christensen and a real swinging Murray on sax and a hot harmonica solo by Pinata. This is a full rich closer for a solid release.
