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!

Flatiron Recordings artist: Leo Lyons and Hundred Seventy Split - Movin' On - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Movin' On, by Leo Lyons Hundred Seventy Split and it's a super blues rocker. Lyons, best known as the bass anchor for legendary Ten Years After band with Alvin Lee. Opening with Walking in the Devil's Shoes, a straight up rocker with blues overtones, Lyons is joined by Joe Gooch on lead guitar and vocal, who stepped up when Lee left TYA in the early 2000's, and Damon Sawyer on drums. Cool shuffle, It's So Easy To Slide really has a great feel with Gooch's vocals floating on the the tight action of Lyons and Sawyer, adding his own crisp guitar riffs between vocals phrases. Excellent! Mad Bad and Dangerous really brings to mind Alvin Lee's Ten Years After with it's high energy, driving bottom and vocals, and rowdy, non stop guitar riffs. Really potent. Easy flowing shuffle, Meet Me at the Bottom, has a really nice feel with the deep feel of Lyons with his walking bass line and Gooch with fluid guitar lead. Very nice. Wrapping the release is romping, Time To Kill, with a driving bass line by Lyons and aggressive rock drum line by Sawyer. Gooch really suits this style band perfectly with his solid vocal presence and relentless guitar lead. I really enjoyed this release.
