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!

Ron Addison - Ride On - New Release Review


I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Ride On, by Ron Addison and it's a cool blues fused rocker. Opening with title track, Ride On, Ron Addison on lead vocal and guitar is joined by Mary Munsey on keys, Erin Larkin on backing vocals, Herb Olshin on guitar, Will Dowell on bass and Brian Seiler on drums. A straight up radio track, a solid opener. Picnic With You is one of my favorite tracks on the release with a swampy, Tony Joe White feel. Addison's guitar and vocals both show real swagger and Duane Catfish Frye adds some real cool harmonica. Bluesy ballad, Doug MacCleod's The Sun Shine Down My Way is a real nice showcase for Addison on vocal and guitar over warm organ and features some real nice sax by Munsey. Very nice. Hoo Doo is another really cool track with a great Latin beat by Seiler and guitar reverb.  Slow blues, My Heart Can't Be Broken Any More gives Addison a real nice opportunity to show his blues guitar chops with plenty of balance and solid vocal. Wrapping the release is traditional spiritual, Ain't No Grave, gets a real nice rework with a rock tempo. With warm vocal backing by Shana Livingston and Robbie Hale, this is a great closer for a solid release.
