Richard Bargel With Klaus 'Major' Heuser & Band 2010 Live


Genre: Blues

Germany

Da soll noch mal einer behaupten, dass der weisse Mann keinen Blues hat bzw. spielen oder singen kann. Dann soll er sich einmal 70 Minuten Zeit nehmen und sich die 11 Songs der aktuellen Richard Bargel-Doppelscheibe anhören. Zum 40-jährigen Bühnen-Jubiläum hat das Kölner Bleichgesicht drei Konzerte in seiner Heimatstadt im renommierten Theater Der Keller mitschneiden lassen. Die Highlights wurden nun auf lupenreines 180 Gramm-Vinyl gebannt.

Die Roosvelt Sykes-Nummer "Double Dirty Mother" zündet das musikalische Feuerwerk. Dass Bargel nicht nur ein genialer Sänger und Instrumentalist, sondern auch ein ausgereifter Komponist auf internationalem Niveau ist, beweist sein eigener Titel "Last One In The Row". Bargel Stimme ist über die Jahre auf der "dusty raod of the blues" gewachsen genauso wie es ein guter Whiskey tut, den er in "Bad Bad Whiskey" besingt und der leider ein viel zu oft trügerischer Freund und gefährlicher Begleiter sein kann. Ein erster Höhepunkt ist "Doing Time" (Bochum Prison Blues), wieder aus Bargels Feder. Er singt in diesem Song über das einsame Gefühl im Knast zu sitzen. Man hört förmlich wie sich die Töne ihren Weg durch die Gitterstäbe in den Himmel der Freiheit suchen. "Losing Hand", ein Slow-Blues, der tief unter die Haut mitten ins Herz geht, offenbart die musikalische Klasse seines kongenialen Partners Klaus "Major" Heuser mit dem er seit einigen Monaten zusammen arbeitet. Hier haben sich zwei gesucht und gefunden. Bargels Dobro und Heusers E-Gitarre bilden eine unauflösliche Einheit. Das Solo, das Heuser ganz nach dem Motto "süßer die Gibson nie klang" spielt, lässt einen innehalten und leise "Wahnsinn" flüstern. Wirklich unerhört genial! Hier paaren sich technische Perfektion und das ganz große Gefühl. Sensibel lässt Bargel seinen Bottleneck über seine alte Dobro gleiten und steht dabei keinem seiner großen Vorbilder nach. Unaufdringlich, aber immer präsent die Rhythmus-Crew aus Sascha Delbrouck (Bass) und Marcus Rieck (Schlagzeug). Ganz im Gegensatz zu dem traurigen Inhalt des Songs "There´s A Man Going Round Taken Names", der an die üble Praxis der Sklavenhändler erinnert, sind die Honky-Tonk-Riffs, die Heuser aus seiner Stratocaster fingert und die in einem aberwitzigen Dialog zu Bargels Slide-Licks stehen. Abschliessend zum Träumen lädt der Titel "Anytime You Want" (Bargel) ein.

Ein Must Have für jeden Blues-Freund und jeden inspirierten Musikgenießer! (DA CAPO-SCHALLPLATTEN)

Dixie Peach 2002 Butta


Genre: Blues-Rock
Rate: 160 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 01:05:03
Size: 74,45 MB

United States

Album Notes

DIXIE PEACH began playing in 1973 when five kindred spirits decided to team up to create an energetic style of southern blues rock that features cutting edge slide guitar work, intense vocals, and stylistic keyboards. The band honed its talent by barnstorming the southeastern U.S. over a span of several years and serving as an opening act for Joe Walsh, Blue Oyster Cult, Ted Nugent, Roy Bucanon, and others.

Although DIXIE PEACH is a unique band, the influence of classic southern rock and blues artists is evident. Original material is written by TONY PAULUS (guitar, keyboards, and vocals) and IRA STANLEY (lead and slide guitar, and vocals). Other band members include STEVE WILLIAMS (keyboards), JAMES M. ROUSCULP (bass and vocals), and STEVE BENSON (drums and percussion). Each band member is a passionate, skilled musician. In October 2002, guitarist IRA STANLEY earned the "Best Guitarist" award at a competition at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum sponsored by Gibson Guitars.

This CD, BUTTA, includes six original songs that feature creative lyrics, intense lead and slide guitar work, and a hard-driving rhythm section. Also featured on BUTTA, are song tributes to artists that have had a significant influence on the band. These tributes include the Allman Brothers "It's Not My Cross To Bear", Eric Clapton's "Blues Power", and Jimi Hendrix's "Little Wing".

Rocky Hill feat. Johnny Winter & Dr. John 1982 Texas Shuffle



Genre: Blues
Rate: 320 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 00:38:41
Size: 88,55 MB

United States

Review by Thom Jurek

When Rocky Hill's Tomato Records debut appeared in 1982, he was out of step in a sense, and out of time. Had he showed up a year or so later he could have challenged fellow Texas bluesman Stevie Ray Vaughan for the title; Vaughan would have won, but it would have been a hell of a battle. Hill is a Texas bluesman who walks the line between T-Bone Walker, Lightnin' Hopkins, Albert King, and Johnny Winter -- who plays on this record along with Dr. John, the Leon Russell Singers, and the Muscle Shoals Horns.

Hill and Winter blaze on their guitars, Dr. John handles the keyboard chores and acts as music director, and Kevin Eggers handles the production chores on a set of screaming, razor-edged blues-rockers like Willie Dixon's "Hootchie Cootchie Man," "Preaching Blues," and a jam based on "Little Red Rooster." As for the originals, Hill's songs are not memorable, but his playing and singing are. On "Rock 'n' Roll" (what an original title), his gruff wailing voice is matched by a knife-edged guitar that growls, roars, and sets fire against Winter's. "Bad Girl Blues" is a moaning blues with wonderful interplay in the bridge and a sharp, pointed piano solo by Dr. John. The addition of Leon Russell's backing vocalists is a real treat; they add emotional depth to what would otherwise be just a barroom affair. They bring soul and a gospel feel to even the raunchiest of blues-rockers. While there is no ground broken here, none is lost either. This blows away run-of-the-mill blues-rock by an exponent of ten, and keeps the home fires burning for a return to tradition without giving up the volume.



Tracklist:

01 - Rock 'n' Roll 00:49

02 - Hootchie Cootchie Man 05:40

Jackie Greene - Sal Valentino & Friends 2003 Positively 12th & K (A Bob Dylan Tribute)


Genre: Blues

United States

Review by Richie Unterberger

On two separate nights in August 2002 and January 2003, several singer/songwriters and musicians in the local scene gathered at Marilyn's on 12th & K Streets in Sacramento, CA to pay tribute to Bob Dylan. Highlights from those two evenings are assembled on this 13-song CD, Positively 12th and K: A Bob Dylan Tribute which, though billed to Jackie Greene/Sal Valentino & Friends, is more of a various-artists compilation. Beau Brummels fans should note that Valentino sings lead on just four of the tracks; singer/songwriter Greene takes lead on four others, with the Jackie Greene Band serving as the backing group for nine of the cuts. Lesser-known singers Mick Martin, Sherman Baker, Lew Fratis, and Billy Harper, Jr. serve as the vocal frontmen on the remainder of the program. These are good musicians doing energetic, straightforward covers of an assortment of Dylan tunes both celebrated ("Subterranean Homesick Blues," "Isis," "It's All over Now, Baby Blue," "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right," "All Along the Watchtower," "I Shall Be Released") and more obscure ("Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window?," "Not Dark Yet," "Everything Is Broken").

It sounds like everyone on-stage and in the audience had a jovial time, but as an audio document, it's less exciting than it must have been to be there, for obvious reasons. The existence of not just the more exciting Bob Dylan originals, but also many other more exciting and imaginative Dylan covers over the preceding 40 years, doesn't put this high on the list for those seeking interesting or novel reworkings of the Dylan canon.



Tracklist:

01 - Subterranean Homesick Blues 03:30

02 - Isis 06:13

03 - Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You 03:01

04 - Highway 61 Revisited 04:25

05 - It's All Over Now Baby Blue 05:24

06 - Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window 04:24

07 - Don't Think Twice, It's All Right 04:03

08 - Not Dark Yet 05:34

09 - Everything Is Broken 04:01

10 - Lonesome Day Blues 07:51

11 - Most Of The Time 05:17
