Kenny Wayne Shepherd 1997 Trouble Is...




Genre: Blues-Rock
Rate: 290 kbps VBR / 44100
Time: 00:56:37
Size: 112,99 MB

United States

Review by Thom Owens

Instead of breaking from his high-energy, high-voltage blues-rock, Kenny Wayne Shepherd offers more of the same on his second album, Trouble Is... While the record lacks the surprise and impact of Ledbetter Heights, it's clear that Shepherd is growing as a guitarist, developing a cleaner, more nuanced technique. He still suffers from the lack of an original voice, plus a lack of strong material, but his growth as a guitarist compensates for what's missing.


Tracklist:

01 - Slow Ride 03:50

02 - True Lies 05:48

03 - Blue On Black 05:31

Tino Gonzales 2002 A World Of Blues



Genre: Blues
Rate: 242 kbps VBR / 44100
Time: 00:59:06
Size: 103,55 MB

France

The concept for this cd is exactly what the title says, the many different kinds of blues throughout the world. The blues of injustice, of a broken heart, of misunderstandings, of a drug addict, of young talent thinking they know it all, of a country that is obsessed with power and greed, of a dancer, of a mistake, of love and compassion, and finally a hope for peace! For each one of these there is a song on this cd. Listen to the words and find where they fit. Each cd that I make is but a vehicle for my small voice in this life. To those I offend my sincere apologies and to those that I touch, carry your own message of peace and love in these very difficult times!! "Ye not know that ye are all Gods"

peace and happiness always!!!
(Tino Gonzales)

Mark Kerr 2010 Blues Nation


Genre: Blues
Rate: 205 kbps VBR / 44100
Time: 00:34:07
Size: 49,07 MB

United States

"Blues Nation" is a CD of original blues / rock songs that are hard hitting, in your face, and to the point. Each song is chocked full of scorching lead guitar, with a take no prisoners guitar sound. Like Mark's first CD, "One Drink Away From The Blues." "Blues Nation" follows the same footsteps except with a harder rougher edge. "Blues Nation" is packaged around Mark's gut busting vocals and virtuoso lead guitar playing fusing blues, rock, funk and jazz. If you miss the days when guitar ruled the airways, we feel you will find what your looking for on this CD. Mark has taken progressive blues to a another level. Much like he did on "One Drink Away From The Blues." We hope you enjoy this awesome CD. From this Blues Hall of Fame inductee. (cdbaby)

Cargoe 1972 Live In Memphis!



Genre: Rock
Rate: 320 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 00:48:27
Size: 110,83 MB

United States

In the middle of all this 1972 hullabaloo with Cargoe and Big Star, the Cargoe guys, well known for their live playing prowess, performed a very special concert. The Memphis rock station of the day, WMC FM-100, had instituted a series of live concerts by many well known artists, to be broadcast over the airwaves directly from Ardent Recording Studios. These were engineered usually by Terry Manning, and sometimes by Richard Rosebrough.The artists included The Groundhogs, The Charlie Daniels Band, Stories, Martin Mull (soon to be released as Lucky Seven CD 9215) and others, including none other than Cargoe! In each case, a live audience of invited guests was brought into the studio.

This CD is the actual recording of that concert back hi 1972! Since the original broadcast, this Cargoe concert has gone "unheard" for these last 31 years! Cargoe were made up of Bill Phillips on keyboards and rhythm guitar, Max Wisley on bass, Tommy Richard on lead and rhythm guitar, and Tim Bent on drums. Bui the magic was that all members were excellent vocalists, as well as songwriters. Good vocal harmony has certainly become a trademark of the "Power Pop" genre, and Cargoe was not to disappoint on that score! So sit back, let your mind drift to 1972, turn on your I'M radio, and enjoy this live broadcast. (Terry Manning)

01 - Come Down 04:28

Khalif Wailin' Walter 2007 Let Me Say That Again



Genre: Blues
Rate: 320 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 00:47:47
Size: 109,30 MB

United States

This fine CD presents straight-ahead, guitar-based Chicago club blues - despite being recorded in Germany. No-one should be too surprised at that though as singer and guitarist Khalif "Wailin'" Walter is the young-ish nephew of ace Windy City guitarist Carl Weathersby (whom he lists as an influence - along with Otis Rush, Freddie King, Albert King, Albert Collins and Lonnie Brooks) and has been based in Europe for a few years now. It is no surprise that he is building up a healthy fan-base, as he tours constantly and plays the Blues squarely in the modern tradition of those just named, though without any outright copying. His vocals are unadorned and extremely effective, whilst his guitar playing is generally powerful and appropriate to each individual number, and whilst he does stretch out, with the shortest track at just under four minutes and the longest eleven seconds short of seven and a half minutes, he does largely keep things tight and focused. It is also good to note that whilst he can pursue the high-energy angle, he can also turn in a fine, very jazzy 'Connie-Lee' (nice piano on this from Rusty Hall, who also turns up on recordings by the likes of Eric Lambert, Bernard Allison and Curtis Salgado i.e. he knows just what is needed!) and capture the lazy Jimmy Reed style perfectly on 'You Don't Have To Go'. Most of the remaining titles are standards, but performed in Walter's own way, which makes this a release of definite interest to lovers of the real Chicago blues. (Norman Darwen)
