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!

Blue Horizon artist: Dion - Tank Full of Blues - New Release Review

I've just received an advance copy of Dion's recording Tank Full of Blues. The legendary rocker has released 2 earlier recordings in the blues genre but this cd, unlike the earlier releases is comprised almost exclusively of original tracks. Blue Horizon, known strongly for releasing early blues rock acts like Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac and Chicken Shack has been re-launched in 2010. Dion's first venture into the blues music genre, Bronx in Blue was nominated for a Grammy as well as a Blues Music Award from the Blues Foundation.

Dion's new journey is piloted by his new mantra "I feel more relevant today than when I recorded all of my hit records. I have a lot to say and I enjoy taking people on a trip... especially a good trip...with the blues".

This is an interesting study of one mans interpretation of the blues. It is't wildly flashy or overly guitar or harp oriented but more rudimentary like a modern John Lee Hooker. Check it out.

The folloing tune is not from this release but is representative of Dion's music.
