Crosscut Records artist: Franck L. Goldwasser - Who Needs This Mess!!?? - New Release Review


I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Who Needs This Mess!!??, from Franck L. Goldwasser and it's a thick slice of blues. Opening with with a solid blues number, Don't Give Up On Me Baby, Franck Goldwasser on vocal and guitar follows a SBW vamp and with strong vocals and really nice guitar work really gets things going. Backed by Ralph Carter on bass and Johnny Morgan on drums, this is a strong opener. Skwurley is a real cool instrumental with excellent slide work by Goldwasser matched with R.J. Mischo. Excellent! Playing off of a "Green Onions" skeleton, Diskum Baab Uleh Shun is another instrumental with plenty of room for Mischo on harmonica to trade riffs with Goldwasser on guitar over the solid bottom of Carter and Morgan. With a zydeco feel, Sobbby Doggy Boogy is a fun track with a great tempo, driven by Goldwasser on guitar and slide. Pure Chicago on If I Could Holler with Goldwasser on vocal and a constant harmonica vamp throughout. Traditional Waters' style instrumentation fits nicely with this track. Another Morganfield influenced track, Dumb and Dangerous has a vital rhythm with Goldwasser on Waters influenced slide style and foot stomp drum. With it's Atkins style guitar rhythm, Razzmazazz is a real nice track with Goldwasser showcasing his finger picking style. Closing the release is slow blues, Bleedin' Heart with Goldwasser breaking loose on electric blues, floating on the full organ backing of Jim Pugh. This is a real nice blues track with Goldwasser digging deep on vocal and taking no prisoners on guitar. This is a real nice closer for a solid release.
