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!

Retro Records artist: Tom "The Suit" Forst - World of Broken Hearts - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, World of Broken Hearts, from Tom "The Suit" Forst and it's got a warm bluesy feel. Opening with Late Night Train, Tom Forst blends super blues concepts with a Pink Floyd, march like cadence and wailing guitar. Leading the way on vocal, bass  and guitar Tom is joined by Ryan Hommel on guitar, James Montgomery on harp, and Travis McNabb on drums. On ballad and title track, World of Broken Hearts, Tom accompanies himself on banjo. This is a solid track with a strong melody and also featuring Vincent Brike on keys and Cynthia Tolson on violin. Wrapping the release is my favorite track on the release, Willie Dixon's Hoochie Coochie Man with a great funky rock drum beat by McNabb, Forst on keys, bass and guitar behind his best vocals on the release. Hints to Dr. John's, I Walk on Guilded Splinters are really nice.  Also of note is some real nice slide work by Paul Nelson and backing vocals by Christine Ohlman, Suzy Bessett and T'Zell. Solid closer.
