Slide Records artist: Paul Boddy & The Sidewinder Blues Band - Nosy Neighbors - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Nosy Neighbors, from Paul Boddy & The Slidewinder Blues Band, and it's a cool, straightforward contemporary blues band. Opening with easy shuffle, Trouble Finds Me Everyday, Paul Boddy on lead vocal and guitar sets a solid platform, joined by Glenn Halo on keys, Chuck Hearne on bass and Dave Hollingsworth on drums. Another shuffle, Hanky Panky Blues has a real nice sway with a strong piano solo by Hale and excellent vocal by Boddy who adds some real nice slide. With it's cool Latin beat, title track, Nosy Neighbors, has strong radio appeal with a great melody, hot drum rhythm and real nice slide work by Boddy. Right Way Up is a real nice blues rocker with nice finger work by Boddy, a driving bass line by Hearne and strong backing vocals. Wrapping the release is Trash Can Head, a laid back bluesy rocker with super jammy piano by Hale, and a cool bass line by Hearne. Backing vocals aren't listed on the album, but I do think that they add nicely to Boody's smooth slide work. Solid closer.
