Despite the banal laws of showbiz, despite the business as it is – "Vasja Club", that is Vasyl Gontarsky, already releases his third album. And already for the third time pleasantly surprises with sincerity and freshness, which can be found with far not every young guy even – and this fellow is adult already. It seems he should have long ago and forever settle down, longer for comfort and definiteness – but, you see, he listens to his soul, and it looks for different things.
But it is possible to say that there was more rock-and-roll on the first album, on the second one – more of punk-chanson, and on this one – more of blues. And frisky blues, with elements of swing, with the atmosphere of nightclubs of the pre-electronic epoch, with a surprising smile in the sad eyes... At that, next to classic American blues, sheer Ukrainian blues sounds here as well – as far as it is possible in general.
However, I will not set to explain such feeling – you need to listen. Exactly, to listen – it is necessary. (Anton Jozhik Leyba - Hedgehog)

Sans pour cela renier un précédent essai qui se partageait de façon pas forcément équitable entre reprises et compositions, Blues Power Band considère que c’est avec cette nouvelle rondelle qu’il signe véritablement son premier album ! Et on le comprend car le combo parisien a réussi le tour de force de nous enregistrer quatorze compositions en Anglais qui vont nous promener pendant une petite heure dans toutes les variantes possibles et imaginables du blues. Pierre angulaire du groupe, Hervé ‘Bannish’ Joachim impose un style très personnel avec une voix chaude et colorée et vient compléter avec maestria une paire de guitaristes virtuoses, Paco Guégan et ‘Papygratteux’ Lavisse, et une rythmique diabolique où l’on retrouve Nico Paullin à la basse et ‘Bathus’ Picard à la batterie. Véritable groupe de scène aussi unanimement reconnu et salué pour son côté blues que pour son côté power, Blues Power Band allie un professionnalisme édifiant avec un super feeling qu’il décline au quotidien partout où il pose le bout de ses santiags … Are you ready for the blues ?
Véritable Wurlitzer dans lequel on aurait compilé du jump, de l’acoustique, du rhythm’n’blues, du Chicago, de la soul, un peu de Texas et beaucoup de rock, « Shoot, Shoot, Don’t Talk ! » est un de ces albums qui séduisent autant par leur diversité que par la qualité de leur contenu. Avec beaucoup d’humour et surtout beaucoup de savoir-faire, chacun y va de son lot de compositions et apporte à chaque fois une sensibilité différente à l’ensemble, ponctuant certains titres de percussions artisanales, d’harmonica ou encore de cuivres ingénieusement disposés pour mieux les rendre uniques. Passés maîtres dans l’art de faire taper du pied à chacune de leurs notes, les Blues Power Band nous régalent de leurs « www.bluespower-band.com (or Dial BEE-PEE-BEE) », « Reverse Side Blues » et « What About BB ? », nous charment de leurs « Break In The Line », « ‘‘B’’ Man », « Troublemaker » et « A Woman Of Action », nous baladent aux confins du delta avec « Askin’ For More », « Dark Side Of The Sun » et « Apologies To Freddie And Billie » et nous explosent le nez avec un énorme « Let’s Rock (Tyson’s Fist In Your Face) », rien que pour nous inciter à passer à l’action et à les rejoindre dans leur envie de jouer et de partager la musique qu’ils aiment ! On raffole du jeu parfait des guitares, qu’il soit tranchant comme une lame de rasoir ou au contraire subtil et délicat, on adore le positionnement de la rythmique, toujours au quart de poil et entraînante comme il se doit, on ne se remet pas sans séquelles des featuring de Sax Gordon, Phil Big Dez, Phil Poitevin et Pascal ‘Greenbullet’ Redondo mais plus que tout ça c’est l’homogénéité générale et l’équilibre de l’ouvrage qu’il convient de saluer car Blues Power Band a su se donner les moyens de faire le grand album que l’on attendait de lui ! Ca donne envie de faire la fête et ça tombe bien, le groupe invitera ses fans et ses amis à le rejoindre pour la sortie de l’album le 18 novembre à La Scène Bastille … Une seule issue : « Shoot, Shoot, Don’t talk ! ».

review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Double live albums were commonplace during the '70s, even for bands that weren't particularly good in concert. As a travelin' band, Lynyrd Skynyrd made their fame and fortune by being good in concert, so it made sense that they released a double-live, entitled One More from the Road, in 1976, months after the release of their fourth album, Gimme Back My Bullets. That might have been rather quick for a live album -- only three years separated this record from the group's debut -- but it was enthusiastically embraced, entering the Top Ten (it would become one of their best-selling albums, as well). It's easy to see why it was welcomed, since this album demonstrates what a phenomenal catalog of songs Skynyrd accumulated.
Street Survivors, which appeared the following year, added "That Smell" and "You Got That Right" to the canon, but this pretty much has everything else, sometimes extended into jams as long as those of the Allmans, but always much rawer, nearly dangerous. That catalog, as much as the strong performances, makes One More from the Road worth hearing. Heard here, on one record, the consistency of Skynyrd's work falls into relief, and they not only clearly tower above their peers based on what's here; the cover of "T for Texas" illustrates that they're carrying on the Southern tradition, not starting a new one. Like most live albums, this is not necessarily essential, but if you're a fan, it's damn hard to take this album off after it starts.

Dear music friends, now 30 years later, it is useless to discuss it. Whether the guitars on the wonderful opener track 'You blew it if you do it' are influenced by Duane Allman and Dickey Betts or by Whishbone Ash, or whether Tanned Leather might have prepared the road for a band like "Lake" (which toured with Lynyrd Skynyrd in the USA and with Wishbone Ash and many others - Lake frontman, Alex Conti, is a Duane Allman worshipper and loves Steely Dan - you see it's all rock 'n roll), or whether the band aimed their music at the cowboys, because of their songs 'A hard road back to Georgia' or 'Country boy', are all questions we don't know the answer to and it doesn't matter anymore.
Just like the Atlanta Rhythm Section, Tanned Leather sometimes used funk rhythms, and in between they had real ballads like Charlie Daniels or Grinderswitch and a song like 'Greyhound take me home in San Francisco' has been influenced by the Beach boys. Moreover, this small band from Germany obviously listened carefully to Little Feat and the Doobie Brothers. (http://www.rtjwebzine.fr)

Hollywood Fats was born Michael Leonard Mann in Los Angeles, and started playing guitar at the age of 10. While in his teens, his mother would drive him to various clubs in South Central Los Angeles to jam with well-known blues musicians when they came to town. Hollywood Fats' father was a doctor and his siblings went on to become doctors and lawyers. He met Buddy Guy and Junior Wells who gave him the nickname. Hollywood Fats toured with James Harman, Jimmy Witherspoon, J. B. Hutto, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, and Albert King.
During the 1970s and 1980s he worked with the blues harmonica player and singer James Harman. He played on a number of his records including Extra Napkin's, Mo' Na'Kins, Please , Those Dangerous Gentlemans and Live in '85. Other guitarists with whom he played included Junior Watson, Kid Ramos and Dave Alvin.
Hollywood Fats was invited to be a sideman to Muddy Waters and later met the harmonica player Al Blake. Blake had just moved to Los Angeles from Oklahoma. In 1974, Hollywood Fats and Blake formed a band consisting of pianist Fred Kaplan, Richard Innes on drums and Canned Heat bassist Larry Taylor called the Hollywood Fats Band.
For a King Biscuit Flower Hour concert on September 7, 1979, which was later to be released on record, Hollywood Fats played the lead guitar in Canned Heat.
The Hollywood Fats Band released a self-titled album in 1979, the only album under their name. The band broke up not long after and Hollywood Fats continued to play with Harman's band, and The Blasters in 1986 replacing Dave Alvin.
Hollywood Fats also played with a non-blues band called Dino's Revenge from 1985 through 1986. He recorded three songs with Dino's Revenge as well as playing several live performances. The band consisted of Marshall Rohner of T.S.O.L. as well as Kevan Hill, Butch Azevedo and Steven Ameche all of The Twisters.
Hollywood Fats died of a heroin overdose in 1986 in Los Angeles at the age of 32. At the time of his death, he was playing with the James Harman Band, the Blasters and Dino's Revenge.
The band reunion
Around 2002, the remaining original members of the Hollywood Fats Band were reunited with young Kirk Fletcher on guitar, and recorded some new material. The first of the recordings came out on Al Blake's solo album Dr. Blakes Magic Soul Elixir released in 2002. This new version of the band started calling themselves the Hollywood Blue Flames. They released two albums under their name from Delta Groove Productions. The second album Road To Rio came with a CD titled Larger Than Life which consisted of previously unreleased live recordings of the original Hollywood Fats Band.

The Superstitions brings that Rod & Culture Cruisin' and House Party Hi Fi Sound in this Record Juke Town (Coast to Coast Jukin'). It goes like this:
Take your Louisiana style Harp Master&VocalistDumar Dupree; shake him up real good with Conqueror Root & Louisiana Bayou feel of Excello and Imperial records artists and just a little taste of Mussel Shoals Soul for good measure. Add some Little Walter, Sonny Boy, George Smith, and Jr. Wells and you really have somethin’! Now move Dumar Dupree into a hard hitting L.A. band with just the right mix of the Old Southern blues, Cajun, Jump/Swing, “really all them roots sounds” and you got it much more!!. It's been 10 to 20 years since a “fresh sound” has come out of Los Angeles playing hard driving roots music lead by one of the great Louisiana inspired” Harp Ace’s”, but once again it's time! Like their predecessors "The Superstitions" have the key timeless elements and are sensational. With a firm grasp on the music of the 40's 50's and 60's with a fresh new fire that is instantly evident. An outstanding mix of Young Talent and veterans to watch their back. This tradition goes all the way back to those 1950’s Midnite theater Sessions with T Bone Walker, Jimmy Reed, Joe Houston, Chuck Higgins, Big Jay Mc Neeley , Ladies and Gentlemen, The Superstitions are in your town!
Dumar Dupree – Duberly Louisiana & N.L.A. - Master of Smokin' Harp/Mississippi Saxophone and oh so authentic vocals where it counts like Walter, Elmore, Otis and Louis Jordan.
“Dr.” Jay Stolmack N.L.A. – “Phd” of Tenor and Baritone Sax - an amazing veteran of finest Blues, Soul and Rock with an ear toward juicy full bodied Honkin' solos Smooth ballads and Jazzy passages each just at the right time and place every time.
Mike Recendes – El Monte - Lead Guitar - showing all the other young and journeyman players alike what the new generation of "T" Bone, Gatemouth, Muddy, Elmore, and yes Santana too interpreters what it's all about and then some. He's got the goods in Time, Tone and Style! Brought it with him from a past life! A real rising star!
Rich Torres – E.L.A. - Drums and percussion - A purveyor of Blues, Jazz, Latin, and rock. Rich lays it down with ELA Personality, Class and Style. A guy with the sound and sense of musical adventure, a key and foundational element in the group on and off the stage. Louis Bellson and Rogers drums are always with Rich!
Sergio Osollo – E.L.A. Bass and Vocals - Smooth and industrial strength wizard of Fender and Dog House a veteran of the blues and 80's L. A. Roots Scene, Sergio has run with the toughest of the tough and is standing tall, no worse for wear. And an outstanding blues vocalist to boot.
Johnny Williamson – Atlanta & N.L.A. Rhythm Guitar and Vocalist - the veterano and stick to your guns old school guy who was there at the beginning in 1950 and is still doing it in 2006. You're in trouble if you ask him to play anything modern. Johnny is a self described Roots Rat and always wants to keep it that way.
In summary these guys have collectively played with or played on the same stage with the roots brightest stars: Big Joe Turner, Etta James, Chambers Brothers, Cal Green, George Harmonica Smith, Natalie Cole, Slim Chris Green, Katy Segal, Top Jimmy & the Rhythm Pigs, Dewey Terry, Juke Logan, Richard Berry, Don Julian, The Jaguars, Joe Houston, Chuck Higgins, J D Nicholson, James Harmon, Rod Piazza, Rick Holstrom, Tony Allen, Alex Schultz, Johnny Turner, Jobe Strials, Max Bangwell, Austin's Billy Campbell, William Clark, Barbara Lynn, Son Seals, Harmonica Doug (Joe Lee) Bush, L T Jones, Grady Jackson, Felix Reyes, Mighty Paul Linden, Jeff Termes, Linda Hopkins, Johnny Dyer, James Gadston, Hollis Gilmore, Randy Resnick, Sam Taylor, Coco Montoya, Debbie Davies, and Paul Butterfield to mention most but not all of the people with whom they have shared the stage and the music.
I can say with confidence, put the platter on; the party has begun right here, right now!
As Dr. Jive would say "Come on Baby's Play it for all the people in the welfare line and down on the Chain Gang Too!" Or Old H. H. “Hunter Hancock” would say " From Swing to Sweet, Be Bop to Ballad, and Blues to Boogie" Here's an L. A. Group who have made good!, lets give a listen to The Superstitions" puttin' out” on their latest record!

Texas Thunder was the first CD Benny recorded for WolftraxRecords and was recorded in the spring of 1993 at GEM/Lonestar studio in Austin, Texas. It is a collection of some of Benny's favorite blues songs plus three of his own originals. The CD was recorded with just the trio of Benny on guitar and vocals, Danny Valerio on bass and Steve Severson on drums. The CD was recorded classic old school style live in the studio over three days. This gives the CD that raw 50's blues sound which a lot of the fans seem to prefer. When you listen to "Meet Me At The Levee", one of Benny's originals, it's hard to believe it's just a trio. Because of copyright limitations on the cover songs on Texas Thunder the CD can only be sold in the continental United States. Benny lost his battle with liver cancer and passed away January 11, 2006. His take no prisoners style will be missed by his many fans, a truly gifted guitar player.
Peace Be With You Benny.

They sizzle at concerts and enthuse brimming concert audiences. At weddings they are the bride's accomplice, and when playing to celebrate a divorce, they work like a hangover cure.
They gravitate towards ethno music, but vibrate in all varieties that give themselves up for smuggling. Kontrabant is the first trans-Slovenian music gang. The Kontrabant guys come from almost all parts of Slovenia, making their musical collage a mix of Pannonian and Mediterranean sounds, dancing songs from the Alps, classical and Balkan songs trimmed with dialects from their own homeland, and the languages of the Roma and nearby Hungary.
The merry sounds of Kontrabant invigorate the old, enchant the young, surprise the bad tempered and drive the party animals wild!
KontraMISSION: smuggling ethno-party music
Kontrabant has for more than a decade been exploring the sounds of Slovenia: Gypsy, Pannonian, Balkan, Mediterranean ethno music influences, taking great delight in incorporating these with urban musical practices into the unmistakable smuggled collage that makes up the songs and melodies of Kontrabant. Already at the beginning of their musical travels the Kontrabant guys forged friendships with the Slovenian gypsies, which has had a strong influence on their music. But an even more significant influence on Kontrabant's musical expression definitely has to be the variety of environments and musical experiences of the guys in the band, and that includes those that were still whippersnappers.
Kontrabant's musical smuggling has an important mission to uphold in popularising the musical treasures from different environments and areas of human endeavour, with the intention of making listeners actively learn and understand others with different lives, cultures and perceptions of the world. Such a diverse collage of musical practices can one only rarely experience in one place! That's Kontrabant's concerts and the music on as many as four of their solo CDs.
Sadly, in recent years, extreme forms of nationalism have sprung up all over Europe. This has spurred on the band even more to develop its recognisable music making and original smuggler's stories of also those minorities that have far too often become ostracised and threatened entities. With the help of the universal language of music, Kontrabant in an informal, very amusing way goes beyond those boundaries, smashes through negative stereotypes and opens up the horizons of those that would otherwise find it difficult to accept something foreign and unknown.
Respect and tolerance of others is an important, and for many a fairly unfamiliar notion in our social order. Kontrabant in its way promotes a better understanding among the people of this world.

review by Bruce Eder
Procol Harum's self-titled, debut album bombed in England, appearing six months after "A Whiter Shade of Pale" and "Homburg" with neither hit song on it. The LP was successful in America, where albums sold more easily, but especially since it did include "A Whiter Shade of Pale" and was reissued with a sticker emphasizing the presence of the original "Conquistador," a re-recording which became a hit in 1972. The music is an engaging meld of psychedelic rock, blues, and classical influences, filled with phantasmagorical lyrics, bold (but not flashy) organ by Matthew Fisher, and Robin Trower's most tasteful and restrained guitar. "Conquistador," "Kaleidoscope," "A Christmas Camel," and the Bach-influenced "Repent Walpurgis" are superb tracks, and "Good Captain Clack" is great, almost Kinks-like fun. Not everything here works, but it holds up better than most psychedelic or progressive rock.
