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!

The Weezil Malone Band - Desert Drive-In - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Desert Drive-In, from the Weezil Malone Band and it's a funky blues rockin' band. Opening with All Over Again, Larry Fitzgerald (Weezil Malone) on lead vocal and guitar lays down a rocking boogie with Dave Alves on bass and Karl Schantz on drums. These guys have a take no prisoners sound with plenty of grit. Children of the Night has a terrific rhythm set by Schantz and Alves and Fitzgerald on guitar and vocal leads the show. This really has the feel of early ZZ Top. If you haven't had the pleasure...this is where it's at... funky rockin' blues. Niiice! Whiskey has plenty of swagger with rowdy vocals and a solid blues rock guitar riff over the pounding bottom by Alves and Schantz. It's obvious that these guys mean business and just for reference, they make the stripped down blues rockers of today sound polished. That's the ticket. Rocking boogie, Take It Away, really will have you stomping your foot and Fitzgerald's is spot on with his vocals. Stretching just a bit on guitar gives the track a great punch making this my favorite track on the release. Wrapping the release is Enough Is Enough featuring Fitzgerald on slide guitar, backed by a Bo Diddley beat. This is a cool closer for a release that really deserves a listen.
