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!

Guy Belanger - Voyages & Other Stories - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Voyages  & Other Stories, by Guy Belanger and it's a solid release with contemporary blues style. Opening with Bayou's Ride, Rob MacDonald on slide, Claude Fradette on guitar, Bruce Cameron on piano, Marc-Andre Drouin on bass and Michael Dufour on drums giving Belanger a solid base for his crafty harmonica adornment. Nice opener. On slow blues, Do I Move You, Sylvie Desgroseillers on lead vocal and perfect guitar response over a great bass drone by Drouin really creating a perfect showcase for Belanger on harmonica. Certainly one of my favorites on the release. Jump track, Duck Soup really has a grate feel with harmonica/guitar duet on the intro and super breakouts by Belanger and MacDonald. Excellent! With a modern shuffle feel, King Bee, features Belanger on vocal and harmonica over some real tasty dobro work by MacDonald and bass by Alec McElcheran. Wrapping the release is Au Bout Du Chemin, a strong ballad with harmonic vocals by Nanette Workman and strong harmonica work over the melody by Fradette, Drouin, Dufour and MacDonald. Solid closer.
