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!

Mob Town Records artist: James Holvay - This Girl - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, This Girl, from James Holvay and it's a cool, retro soul release. Opening with Hot N' Heavy Love, a very danceable track with hints of Curtis Mayfield and strings underneath, Holvay on vocal and guitar, is joined by Les Falconer on drums, James Manning on bass, Stu Pearlman on keys and Ron Douglas, Cliff Curtis and Les Falconer on backing vocals.  Another slinky track, More of You, has the definite Chicago soul richness with strong vocals by Holvay. A real radio track, Whatever She Wants is right out of that 70's songbook and should play well to the radio. With cool horn backing by Larry McCabe and the Minneapolis Horns, this track is smooth. Wrapping the release is slow soul track, She's Gone Away, with easy, string backing and warm vocal backing. This is a real nice release with a definite retro feel.
