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!

Blue Heart Records artist: Malaya Blue - Blue Credentials - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Blue Credentials, from Malaya Blue and it's a solid blues rocker. Opening with Your Act Has Worn Thin, Malaya up front on vocals leads this heavy bottomed hi stepper joined by Brett Lucas on lead guitar, Richard Cousins on bass, John McCullough on Hammond and Sam Kelly on drums. R&B flavored, I Can't Find No Love, has a real nice feel. Malaya hits a really nice slot and Lucas' lead guitar response is spot on. Soulful ballad, I'm Having Dreams Again, is my favorite track on the release and also the radio selection from my perspective. With it's solid melody and some of Malaya's best vocals on the release, coupled with some nice slide work by Lucas hits the spot. Funky Good Intentions, Bad Results is another strong entry with a great bass line by Cousins and some strong blues riffs by Lucas backing up Malaya. Blues rocker, Bring Me Your Sin has a terrific beat and Lucas really unloads both with some nice Dobro work and some flashy electric guitar work. Very nice. Howlin' Mercy has real grit with Malaya digging deep vocally over the Dobro work of Lucas. Real stuff! Wrapping the release is Messin' Around, with a laid back strut rhythm. Another track with a pop edge is another radio candidate and a solid closer.
