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!

Robert "Top" Thomas - A Thin Dime - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, A Thin Dime, from Robert "Top" Thomas and it's a solid, contemporary "country blues" style release. Opening with BL Jefferson's One Thin Dime, Robert "Top" Thomas accompanies his vocal on guitar. With perfect timing and tight picking pattern, this is a strong opener.  On the Ballad of John Henry, Top pulls out his steel body resonator and adds accomplished slide work to his picking style on this lively number. On St Louis Jimmy Oden's Goin' Down Slow, Top captures the earth beneath this track with excellent vocals and a tidy guitar style. Top's take on Baby Please Don't Go is a cool, up tempo rag with a great balance between his vocal and guitar picking. Very nice. Rev. Gary Davis' I Am The True Vine is full of energy with traditional Davis picking style and powerful vocals. Excellent! Wrapping the release is another Gary Davis tune, Oh Glory, How Happy I Am with enthusiastic vocals over a subdued guitar accompaniment. This is a cool contemporary, country blues (traditional) release.
