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!

Lone Star Mojo - A Shot Of The Blues - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, A Shot Of The Blues, from Lone Star Mojo and it's tight. Opening with super shuffle, Good Blues Travels Fast, Joe Splawn on lead vocal and B3 takes center stage with Mark Snyder on lead guitar and harmony, Tim Maloney on bass and Barry Sloan on drums. Splawn's rugged vocal style gives this track plenty of grit and his keys style really reinforces Snyder's guitar riffs. Solid opener. Slow, bluesy ballad, Thoughts Of You, has a very cool melody and with full keyboard tension, gives Snyder plenty of space to grind out a tasty, melodic solo. R&B chugging title track, A Shot Of The Blues is definitely one that will fill the dance floor. With it's boogaloo rhythm and rolling B3, it's a crowd pleaser. Another favorite is Corner Boogie with it's driving rhythm and heavy organ work. Splawn really gets this one going and with Maloney and Sloan really holding down the bottom, Snyder rips it loose and Splawn really rides the B3. Funky, Your Blues Give  My Blues The Blues, really really is a great track featuring Maloney and Sloan. Sit still while you're listening to this one can't. Wrapping the release is radio format, America's Got The Blues with it's solid melody and with Vanity Washington on backing vocals. A soulful solo by Snyder tops of this tidy closer.
