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!

Sir Rod & The Blues Doctors - Keeping It In The Family - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Keeping It In The Family, by Sir Rod & The Blues Doctors, dedicated to keeping alive the sounds and spirit of blues master Sterling "Mr. Satan" Magee. Magee was featured in the Netflix screened documentary, Satan & Adam, with Adam Gussow on harmonica. With Atlanta based "Sir Rod" Patterson, Magee's nephew, and Alan Gross on guitar, this trio released an album, Come Together in 2020 and are back now with this live release. Opening with Shake, Rattle and Roll, Gross sets a cool rock and roll guitar rhythm with solid harmonica work by Gussow and featuring Patterson on solid lead vocal. On Mack Rice's R&B mega hit, Mustang Sally, the guys get into a great groove with Patterson really showing his vocal prowess. James Brown's I Feel Good (I Got You) is up next with it's original arrangement. These guys do a real nice job of a track that was normally covered with full horns and drum/bass bottom. Addition of a harmonica and this is blues, man. Gussow steps out on Thunky Fing Rides Again with a bluesy rock feel giving it the full harmonica treatment. Best track on the release. Wrapping the release is blues based, Hot Tamale Baby, with Gross and Gussow jamming out on a traditional blues riff and featuring Patters on vocal lead. This is a cool, live release.
