Trapeze 1970 Medusa



Genre: Rock
Rate: 256 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 00:40:35
Size: 74,25 MB

United Kingdom

Review by Jason Anderson

Not only is Medusa the finest offering from '70s outfit Trapeze, it is one of the decade's most underappreciated hard rock recordings. With a lineup that consisted of future Deep Purple, Judas Priest, and Black Sabbath members, there seems to be proof that at least a few fellow musicians appreciated this 1971 offering.

Fans of his later work might be surprised by Glenn Hughes' soulful vocal delivery, especially on the midtempo blues-rockers like "Black Cloud" and "Your Love Is Alright." Guitarist Mel Galley also deserves mention for his sparse approach to classic rock riffing that is catchy and affective. Even the ballads are focused, memorable, and unique. There are some melodic moments on the closing title track that sound almost as if a '90s alt-rock crooner composed them.

Considering that Medusa predates many similar, and more successful, classic rock LPs from the likes of Bad Company, Nazareth, Foreigner, and others, it's a wonder that the record isn't mentioned more when influential albums of this era are discussed.


Tracklist:

01 - Black Cloud 06:14

02 - Jury 08:14

03 - Your Love Is Alright 04:56

04 - Touch My Life 04:08

05 - Seafull 06:36

Robi Zonca And His Band feat. Luther Kent 2006 Magic Box Live


Genre: Blues
Rate: 128 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 01:15:20

Italy United States

Review by Alex Henderson

European blues fans, like European jazz fans, are a highly enthusiastic bunch; they aren't nearly as large a group as the European rock audience, but they are quite devoted. And Europe has given us some talented blues artists. Among them: Sven Zetterberg from Sweden, Ana Popovic from the former Yugoslavia and Robi Zonca from Italy. Of course, being Italian does not mean that a bluesman is obligated to play with Italians exclusively -- and on Magic Box (which was recorded live in Zonca's home town of Bergamo, Italy on March 9, 2006) singer/guitarist Zonca and four fellow Italians (guitarist Stefano Galli, bassist Paolo Legramandi, drummer Marco Sacchitella and keyboardist Antonello "Jantoman" Aguzzi) are joined by New Orleans bluesman Luther Kent.

Although Zonca and Kent share the lead vocals, Kent sings more often -- and Zonca's American guest is in very good form on performances of Big Joe Turner's "Flip, Flop and Fly," and Willie Dixon's "I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man." Like a lot of people in the modern blues scene, Zonca is blues-oriented without being a blues artist. He has rock and R&B influences as well, and this Italian concert reflects that. Kent's soul credentials are obvious on inspired performance of Benny Latimore's 1974 hit "Let's Straighten It Out" (which is bluesy soul or soul-blues, not straight-ahead blues), Bobby "Blue" Bland's "Nothing You Can Do" and the Meters' "Hey, Pock-a-Way" (a prime example of Crescent City funk). Before this live recording, Zonca provided some studio recordings that are worth owning. But Magic Box is more essential, and it is the most logical album to start out with if one if making his/her first Zonca purchase.

Eddie Cotton 2001 Live At The Alamo Theatre


Genre: Blues
Rate: 192 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 01:17:11
Size: 105,85 MB

United States

Live at the Alamo Theater marks Eddie Cotton’s triumphant arrival on the blues scene. It is not everyday that blues fans can celebrate the discovery of a young player hailing from a traditional background.

Hot on the heels of his 1999 Grammy Award nominated album, “Welcome to Little Milton”, producer Greg Preston was quick to realize Eddie’s tremendous potential and embraced this project with his usual professionalism and drive. The historic Alamo Theater on Farish Street in downtown Jackson, MS where so many blues luminaries have performed over the years; was the perfect venue for Eddie’s recording debut. Eddie Cotton’s impassioned, soulful vocals and fluid, biting guitar combined with his youthful enthusiasm and powerful stage presence stormed the Alamo and took no prisoners. Preston teamed up again with ace engineer Kent Bruce to superbly capture the energy and excitement of that memorable night.

Eddie shines on creative arrangements and interpretations of Howlin’ Wolf’s “Shake For Me”, Hound Dog Taylor’s “She’s Gone” and the scorching closer, Little Milton’s “Walkin’ The Backstreets And Cryin’.” His originals include the Gospel drenched “Don’t Give Up On A Love Affair,” the mournful “You’re The Girl,” as well as the soul blues “Why Must I Cry.”

Live at the Alamo Theater is a fitting debut to what will likely become a long and distinguished career. With his passion, exuberance and overflowing talent, Eddie Cotton promises to carry the blues tradition well into the 21st century. (http://www.eddiecottonjr.com)

The Dennis Hormes Blues Band 2002 Live



Genre: Blues-Rock
Rate: 192 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 01:06:46

Germany

Hallo zusammen,

da sitze ich im CD-Laden, höre meine bestellten CDs durch und Bernd legt mir so nebenbei eine Neuerscheinung zu den anderen CDs. Dennis Hormes Blues Band. Wer ist das? Engländer, Amerikaner? Auf dem Cover sind vier Bilder eines blutjungen Mannes mit seiner Gitarre.

Die Infos auf der Rückseite des Booklets machen mich fast sprachlos. "Live" wurde in der Sandkaul in Wachtendonk, einen kleinen Steinwurf von meinem Wohnort entfernt, aufgenommen. Das Ganze wurde im Groove Box Studio in Straelen gemixt. Also Blues vom Niederrhein pur, denn Hormes kommt aus Kempen am Niederrhein.

Der etwas mehr als 20 Lenze zählende junge Gitarrist hat da schon einiges zu bieten. Dieser Konzertmitschnitt aus 2002 wurde in Trio-Besetzung eingespielt. Für die gespannten Felle ist Dieter Steinmann zuständig. Die dicken Gitarrensaiten zupft Martin Engelien. Engelien? Ja, genau der, der den Bass für Klaus Lage betätigt.

Zum Einstieg gibt es drei straighte Eigenkompositionen, die mit ausgiebigen Gitarrensoli in eine rockige Richtung gehen. Spätestens mit Hendix' Little Wing zeigt Hormes wo der Hammer hängt, denn er ist in der Lage diesem Song neues Leben einzuhauchen. Everyday Shuffle groovt und könnte jeden Tag zum musikalischen Tagesmenü zählen. Mit It's True wird ein Slowblues geboten, in dem Hormes und Band zeigen, dass sie auch die ruhigere Gangart beherrschen. Just 1 More würde ich als typisch, rockigen Song im Midtempo bezeichnen. Mit Lynotts Don't Believe A Word gibt es einen weiteren Coversong, der mit viel Emotion und einem tollen Gitarrensolo von Dennis Hormes vorgetragen wird. Danach Freedom, ein weiterer Hendrix-Song. Den Lautstärkeregler auf 10 und genießen. Introduction FJ und Freeway Jam (Middleton) sind aus meiner Sicht die nächsten Höhepunkte der CD. Welche Sounds Engelien aus seinem Bass holt ist schon beeindruckend. Dass Hormes nochmals beweist, was er drauf hat, versteht sich von selber. Bass- und Drumsolo; knapp 14 Minuten Freeway Jam

>>> Enjoy it! (http://www.home-of-rock.de)
