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!

Cleopatra Records artist: Linda Gail Lewis - Early Sides 1963-1973 - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Early Sides 1963-1973 from Linda Gail Lewis and is runs the gamut from early R&B to early rock, country and blues. Opening with CC Rider, Lewis on vocal really swings it. Joined by Scotty Moore on guitar and George Webb on bass, Morris Tarrant on drums, W R Fields on and with honking sax work by Luke Wright, this track really hums. With telling, string backing, country ballad, Small Red Diary is a solid showcase for Lewis' vocals with Jerry Reed on guitar, Harold Bradley on guitar, Bob Moore on bass and Buddy Harmon on drums. Blues rocker, Jim Dandy, has great energy with flashy guitar work by Mike Deasy and Ben Benay and Butch Parker on keys. Another solid country ballad, My Heart Was The Last One To Know. With Pig Robbins on piano, Kenneth Lovelace on fiddle and solid steel guitar work, this is a classic. Another great country entry is What Is Love with potent steel guitar work, Robbins on piano and Lovelace on fiddle under Lewis' stellar vocals. Wrapping the release is I Should Have Not Have Fallen In Love With You with it's country blues feel. With Lewis on lead vocal and piano, Leo Leblanc handles the steel work like a champ, joined by Tommy Cogwell on bass, Gene Chrisman on drums and Charlie Chalmers, Sandra Chalmers and Donna Rhodes on backing vocals, this is a solid closer for a real strong release.
