Kevin Borich Express 1998 Heart Starter

Genre: Blues
Rate: 320 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 00:58:50

The music on this CD lives out where John Lee Hooker meets AC-DC. All the Borich trademarks are there, great power chords and slide, plenty of wah-wah and lots of other guitar pyrotechnics. He's in fine voice, his vocals sometimes sung, at other times spoken and snarling. When trying to describe someones music, there's always the temptation to make comparisons with other artists, but to me Kevin Borich doesn't sound like anyone else, at least no one I'm familiar with.

His CD contains 10 Kevin Borich originals, some in collaboration with Harry Brus, the bassman. Mink Deville's Cadillac Walk kicks the album off, with Kevin and his guitar both snarling away to set the tone for the majority of the numbers. Harry Brus (Bass) and John Annas (drums) lay down their heavy, rock steady rhythms to keep the whole thing thundering along. But right in the middle of kilowatt territory, we come across "Legs Too Long", an acoustic number with Kevin on Dobro, Then its back to full power for a couple of songs before "Saved By The Blues , a quiet, slow, dare I say pretty blues, with Clayton Doley on Hammond. Then back into it for the rest of the trip. Kevin Borichs son, Lucius, joins the fray for a couple of numbers, including the old Sandy Nelson hit, Let There Be Drums. The standout tracks for my money are Cadillac Walk ,and Kevin Borichs Heavyweight Boogie, a Boogie Chillun style number which pays homage to some great boogie-men, and of course the final track, a high power slide version of Waltzing Matilda, complete with didgeridoo.

The overall result is an album of powerful, unique, Aussie blues-rock. If you like your blues heavy and loud, get this CD - it's a real heart starter!
