Bubba Mac Blues Band 2003 Happy Blues - Live At The Bubba Mac Shack

Size: 147,32 MB

United States

A certain high voltage style compliments the electric energy in the Bubba Mac Blues Band. This is a powerful blues outfit featuring a large band (nine-person blues formation) and strong vocals from a range of band members. A full sound like this becomes extra intoxicating in a live environment and this one registers well above the legal limit! Bubba became hooked on the blues during frequent visits to Bourbon Street where he played with The Rooster and his band The Chicken Hawks, and you can definitely see that Crescent City (The Dirty Dozen Brass Band provides a guest appearance) influence on these tracks. It can be laid back and brooding, or it can rock your socks. (http://www.dwmmusic.com)

General Store 2007 Vision Of Diversity


Genre: Rock
Rate: 320 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 01:00:52
Size: 139,19 MB

France

Fichtre! Quelle surprise de voir débarquer ce nouvel album des Bordelais de GENERAL STORE. A l’époque où le net n’existait pas (en France du moins), à l’époque où j’étais nouveau venu dans la métropole Girondine, l’on trouvait affiché sur les murs de la ville des affiches de ce groupe. Evidemment cela remonte maintenant à une quinzaine d’année, et je ne savais pas le groupe encore en activité. Je dois préciser que je ne les ai jamais vus en concert, ni même écouté de disques auparavant, et c’est donc avec un plaisir certain que je me propose pour la chronique de ce nouveau jet, le nommé "Vision Of Diversity", et comme son nom l’indique bien justement, est un album très varié.

GENERAL STORE n’évolue pas dans le Hard-Rock au sens pur du terme, mais plutôt dans un blues rock vitaminé, tantôt très rock et tantôt très lent tel que doit se concevoir le Blues, et la quasi omniprésence d’orgue Hammond lui donne un côté Hard 70s extrêmement sympathique. Ajoutez à cela une production digne des plus grands et vous tenez là un album d’une qualité que beaucoup envierait. La seule chose que j’eusse aimé entendre, ç’eut été un peu d’harmonica qui eut apporté un petit plus, mais bon ce serait faire la fine bouche.

En guise d’entrée en matière, "Who Kills The King ?" met tout le monde d’accord, il est un très bon titre rock blues et assez incisif pour capter l’auditeur, comme ses petits copains que sont "Children In A Box"et "Singing On My Way". On accélère la cadence par moment avec du pur rock, "Big Natural" qui est limite Hard-rock, tel qu’il se jouait dans les années 70s. D’ailleurs ce titre m’a aussitôt fait penser à "Rockers" d’AC/DC. Parfois GENERAL STORE vient rendre hommage au rock sudiste avec "A Better World", un morceau bien carré, accompagné de guitares slides comme l’affectionnent particulièrement les musiciens sudistes. "Sleep In Bed" est quand à lui fortement influencé par ZZ TOP, celui des années 70s, le ZZ TOP de "Deguelo" ou de "Fandango". Et le Blues dans tout cela, le « pur » Blues, et bien il est ici bien présent avec "California", très lent et survolé de superbes soli de guitares. Mais il n’est encore pas comparable à "Always By My Side", le Blues de rêve, celui qui vous arrache les tripes, celui qui vous fait verser une larme de joie ou de pleurs, celui qui vous rappelle que ceux qui ont créé cette musique, les esclaves américains, peinaient tous les jours de leur vie dans les champs de coton de la Louisiane et du Mississipi. Magnifique !

Il serait temps je crois d’accorder à GENERAL STORE, la reconnaissance à laquelle ils ont droit. Après quinze ans d’existence et être toujours là envers et contre tout, chapeau bas. Enfin, si vous êtes friands de ce style, vous pouvez vous procurer cet album, satisfaction et bonheur garantis. Il est sûr qu’à la prochaine date sur Bordeaux, j’y serais.

If you're thinking great Blues Cities, Chicago, New Orleans, and Memphis might come into mind. I know Cheyenne, Wyoming wouldn't be on the top of my list. However, Fatt Cat Freddie has proved me wrong again. Their CD "Cruisin For A Bluesin" delivers a lot of sound and great blues music for a three piece band. "All over you" is a hard driven kicking song that'll make you want to get up and shake your butt. In addition, "I Don't Know (What I'm gonna do about it)" is another tune that I found to be pleasing to my ears. Moreover, there is some great guitar licks on "Take These Blues" that you'll want to include in your daily blues listening. All blues music lovers should hear Fatt Cat Freddie "Cruisin For A Bluesin". They have definitely got their sound together, two thumbs up on this CD. (The Commander, The Blue Zone)

Album Notes

Southern rock immediately evokes images of Black Crowes, The Marshall Tucker Band and The Allman Brothers. HACHA is clearly influenced by these pioneers of the genre, but rather than be a cheap imitation, HACHA builds on that foundation and creates something that is all their own. At times the album sounds vaguely familiar, but just when you are about to identify the riff from some classic tune, it veers off into something new, unexpected, and all together exceptional.

This is the result of a musical collaboration of life long friends. A comfortable old sofa familiarity exists between the band, that was formed while the members were still learning the quadratic equation. This gives them the freedom to venture into new territory, to experiment, and just rock without fear of ridicule or mockery from their band mates. They have formed a circle of trust inside their compound, the Hacienda de Hacha 2.0, in Encino, that extends to the stage and to the studio.
It doesn't hurt that they have honed their craft by playing hundreds of shows across the United States in venues ranging from small clubs to large theatres. Formed in Connecticut in 1997 by friends whose lives were so inexplicably woven together that it would take two thirty packs an a couple of hours to get the story straight, HACHA defined their sound at Brandy's, a Restaurant/Bar owned by Bassist, Mike Murphy's, Parents.

During Breaks from their respective colleges HACHA toured the Northeast extensively while sharing bills with some of the industry's finest performers. A small sample of the artists HACHA has shared the stage with include Guster, Stangefolk, Jerry Garcia Band, Derek Trucks Band, Roberta Flack and members of the Black Crowes, Allman Brothers and Gov't Mule.

They have pulled up their roots (so to speak) and have moved to Southern California where a whole new section of the country can hear their signature sound of southern chant rock, which melds southern inspired rock with soaring, extended choruses. They have taken up residence in the aforementioned Hacienda de Hacha 2.0, so named because it is the second installment, and are ready to launch an offensive throughout the Southwest this fall. HACHA is the product of friendship channelled into musical experimentation and the result is something special.

Review by Brian Beatty

A cherished rarity among even his most die-hard fans, It Happened One Bite finds Dan Hicks and company -- not exactly his Hot Licks, but close enough for hipster folk swing -- providing the soundtrack for a 1978 animated film set during the gangster '50s. Unfortunately, the cartoon in question, at least with Hicks' exceptional soundtrack for it, was shelved. A reworked version of the film eventually released in 1982 featured none of the tunes Hicks wrote and recorded. Too bad, too, because his 13 songs are all top-notch tomfoolery of the patented Hicks variety.

This album offers any fan of Guitar Driven Rock an exciting listen. With today's radio airwaves filled with uninteresting, simplistic garbage; the songs on "Moorpark Street" are diverse enough to be on the radio while still maintaining great musicianship and interesting song structure. My favourite song, "Brown Rabbit", with its catchy bass intro and rolling rhythm has a structure that is both musically interesting and pleasing to the ear. If you're tired of today's dull, cookie cutter rock, then pick up a copy of "Moorpark Street". (Jason Mangual)
