Serving up 12 Davenport original tunes on the album, 'Mad Dog' and his mates have cooked up a spicy stew of vintage blues sounds. Tracks like the hopping 'It Won't Work Like That, I'm Gonna Move' and the rousing 'I'm Gonna Give It Up' find Davenport ... singing convincingly in a gruff time seasoned tone, and blowing up a storm on the harp.

Tim Elliott & The Troublemakers 1993 Tim Elliott & The Troublemakers


Genre: Blues
Rate: 212 kbps VBR / 44100
Time: 00:52:32
Size: 75,85 MB

United Kingdom

These are the sounds from an era when acoustic blues was taking on amplification. Not an "unplugged" album, but one firmly rooted in the tradition of blues and gospel. There is no overkill here, yet the treatments are totally loaded with conviction. Tim Elliott re-introduces the drive and vitality that was there the first time around on gems by Hooker, Howlin' and Johnson. The recording is relaxed, and you won't find any bleached copies on this CD. Tim Elliott and The Troublemakers are one of the unique examples, and living testaments, of why the music, nowadays, is very much alive and well. Talented artists bringing emotion, craftsmanship and spontaneity on home. (http://www.dwmmusic.com)

Grinderswitch 1977 Unfinished Business



Genre: Southern Rock
Rate: 214 kbps VBR / 44100
Time: 00:37:39
Size: 57,85 MB

United States

Review by Michael B. Smith

Grinderswitch was one of the most soulful bands that rocked the South, and indeed the rest of the world, during the '70s, highlighting Dru Lombar's powerful vocals and guitar work; Stephen Miller on keyboards; Larry Howard on guitar; Rick Burnett on drums; and the late Joe Dan Petty on bass.

In 1977, the band found themselves in the studio working on their second album for the Atco/Rabbit label. This following the huge success of Redwing, and three less successful releases on Capricorn Records. Just as they got the album ready for release, they were shelved in favor of the latest trend in music, disco.

Twenty-three years later, this fine album has finally been released in its entirety for the very first time. The record was produced by Paul Hornsby, perhaps the best known producer ever to come out of the "Southern rock" scene of the '70s, and recorded and mixed by Sam Whiteside. The Muscle Shoals Horns are featured guests, as is the timeless Bonnie Bramlett, whose solo work and recordings with her former husband, Delaney, are the stuff of music history.

"How Come It Is" is a straight-up rocker that opens the album, backed by a tight horn section and laced with an adequate dose of B-3 organ from Stephen Miller, who also wrote the tune. "Moving on Back to You," a soul-stirring R&B number, is power packed, and Larry Howard's "If the World Was My Guitar," is absolutely haunting in its beauty and spirit. When the band covers Albert King's "You're Gonna Miss Me," it is so hot you can shut your eyes, feel the heat, and see the burning embers smoldering. "That's What You Get for Loving Me" has the Otis Redding vibe down to a tee, and Lombar once again sings at his soulful best. This is a great album, filled with soul, blues, rock, gospel, and even a little '60s pop, as in the band's rollicking cover of the Drifters' "I Count the Tears," a track that manages to combine elements of Southern rock with a definite early '60s radio-hit sound. "Dr. Hector's Traveling Show," which inspired the name of Dru Lombar's current band, Dr. Hector & the Groove Injectors, is a fun-filled rocker that is highlighted by Lombar's red-hot slide guitar and catch lyrics.

This is an incredible documentation of one of the best bands to come out of the South since the Allman Brothers Band, and a welcomed addition to any collection.



Tracklist:

01 - How Come It Is 03:38

02 - Moving On Back To You 03:33

Een waardige opvolger van Distance, deze LP. Het blijft misschien wat meer binnen de lijntjes, maar toch ben ik wel gek op dit album. Shame on you, met een funky schreeuwende Margriet Eshuijs in het koortje, Blisters, het gospel-achtige Rolling (wat een hitje werd) en het onwaarschijnlijk mooie ingetogen Sky zijn de hoogtepunten van deze plaat.

Kopen, als je 'm op LP tegenkomt. Ik heb ook de Fonos-uitgave op CD. (normaal gesproken verwijs ik nu als tip naar hun website, maar Fonos is helaas terziele gegaan...) (http://www.musicmeter.nl)

Dan Patlansky 2009 Move My Soul


Genre: Blues
Rate: 320 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 01:10:19
Size: 160,83 MB

South Africa

Don’t forget to read the label: Move My Soul is a blues album.

But it’s the strongest album I have heard this year. Of any kind.

Blues junkies would call it ‘versatile’, but for me, that’s too detached. It is a fully-realised album, sometimes caressing, sometimes rampaging, that begs to be listened to as a suite.

Think of it as a series of in-your-seat, out-of-your-seat-and-on-the-table moments. “Big Things Going Down” is the latter, a momentous epic that floats through ten minutes of peaks and troughs as if it was thirty, and still ends too soon. Faster, less compromising, and more fun with a glass of “fruit” juice, is the rapid lovin’ of “That’s Alright Mama”. Then there’s “Backside of Paradise”, a slow-cooked cauldron of hoodoo and voodoo that invents the perfect origin story for Patlansky himself:

They say I was born on a stone at night Jammin’ to the blues

Albert Frost will have something to say about it, but Dan is South Africa’s most prodigious, virtuosic guitar talent. Ask any recent All Black about the ‘T’ word, though, and they’ll tell you: talent doesn’t mean squat without end product. Move My Soul is Patlansky’s final-winning performance and it should be his Webb Ellis Trophy. Now he needs to find a little luck, or perhaps make some of his own: time to hit the Crossroads.
