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!

Dustin Arbuckle and the Damnations - Live At The Shamrock - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Live At The Shamrock, by Dustin Arbuckle and the Damnations and it's tasty. Opening with easy blues rocker, You're Gonna Hear Me On The Radio, with Dustin Arbuckle up front on lead vocal and harmonica. Arbuckle has a really solid voice and rich harmonica tone and with the addition of Brandon Hudspeth on guitar, Caleb Drummond on bass and Kendall Newby on drums, this is a solid opener. Hard driving, Chicago style blues rocker, Across The Desert, gives Arbuckle a great opportunity to get his harmonica ramped up and Hudspeth on guitar fans the flames really well taking the track to a boil. Sioux City Strut is a terrific boogie with Hudspeth turning up the heat. Sliding into the slot on harmonica, Arbuckle really cranks up the jam. This is my favorite track on the release. Excellent! Shuffle, Woman Down In Arkansas features Arbuckle, Drummond and Newby on harmony vocals and a real nice harmonica led melody. Hudspeth turns on the blues with solid guitar phrasing. Very nice. Wrapping the release is Bob Dylan's Tombstone Blues and Arbuckle maintains Dylan's loose vocal delivery style, contrasted with up tempo rhythm by Newby and rowdy guitar work by Hudspeth. Strong closer.
