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!

Out Of The Past Music artist: Doug Duffey and BADD - Play The Blues - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Play The Blues, by Doug Duffey and BADD and it's straight up with a twist. Opening with shuffle track, The Things That We Used To Do, Doug Duffey takes the basic original blues premise and bends it. With basic piano, bass and drum accompaniment, holds a solid shuffle beat under solid vocal but then in walks Dan Sumner on lead guitar and plays outside of the routine shuffle beat. Pretty cool matrix with cool backing vocals. On Evil, a mod funky blues track, soulful vocals command the spotlight but you can hardly miss the introduction of rhythm guitar riffs that fall more into the pop/punk genre. A fat bluesy guitar solo by Sumner and it's contagious beat makes this one of my favorites on the release. Blues based rocker, Drink It On Down, is another of my favorites with  distinct Keith Richards dirty rock feel. A springy, piano rocker, You Got That Somethin', has a most commercial feel with it's simple bluesy melody and nicely blended vocals. Wrapping the release is A Memory Left To Lose, a soulful ballad that leaves you wanting more. Duffey's vocal and a particularly nice guitar solo by Sumner gives this release a solid sendoff.
