Robert Lockwood Jr. 2003 Complete Trix Recordings


Genre: Blues
Rate: 320 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 01:28:29
Size: 203,18 MB

United States

Review by Thom Jurek

The Savoy Jazz issue of Robert Lockwood Jr.'s legendary Trix recordings is a gift for anyone interested in the immediacy of raw, wide-open blues with no regard for convention or trend. Lockwood's music could have been recorded anytime between 1950 and the present. His production techniques are plaintive and serve to equalize everything at the same level, giving the music a live feel usually left behind in a studio. His idiosyncratic tunings and distorted amplification offer the listener the kind of in-your-face presence usually found only in a club. But it's the material, the volume and range of it, that is the most staggering. Lockwood and band -- which includes the great blues saxophonist Maurice Reedus -- tear through the blues from Delta to Chicago to Kansas City, from New York to Texas and beyond.

Check the opener, "Little Boy Blue," for its deep Delta root and contrast it with the beautiful saxophone wail in "Annie's Boogie," which comes straight out of T-Bone Walker. Or dig the acoustic Piedmont-style blues in "Driving Wheel" and let it run you over before the jazzy blues of "Majors, Minors & Ninths," which echoes Charlie Christian, knocks you on your ass. All of these cuts are on disc one, but there are two totaling 25 tunes, recorded live in the studio without the benefit of a rehearsal or a mixdown. Disc two features a bit more Chicago-oriented material, such as "This Is the Blues" and "Little Queen of Spades," but it also features one of the most stunning reads of Robert Johnson's "Terraplane Blues" ever recorded. Indeed, the listener gets a distinct impression that hearing these songs played by this very same band on another night might sound very different than they do here; thank God, yes.

This music is only sketched in forms, leaving plenty of room for honest to God improvisation, and the listener benefits mightily. Awesome.

United Kingdom

This is another bright, but also often overlooked, gem from the wild rockin´ mid-eighties. The album which was produced by Roy Williams and Doc Stewart and released again on Lost Moment Records in 1985. Like many other outfits, that emerged form the London rocking underground at the early 1980s, THE RATTLERS created their own youthful interpretation of Rockabilly, blending all-time classics and originals with a stomping beat, a furious slap bass and a mean guitar.

Genre: Blues
Rate: 320 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 00:41:57
Size: 95,98 MB

United States

Album Notes

Jimmy Griswold captures the style of the artist in any type of music he attacks, from the warm tones of T-Bone Walker & BB King to the screaming sounds of Roy Buchanan, Jeff Beck & Stevie Ray Vaughn.

Jimmy projects unparallel energy and feeling to his guitar work. He has toured with the original Drifters and has opened for the likes of Ronnie Earl, George Thorogood, NRBQ, Dave Mason, Matt "Guitar" Murphy and many others.

Since relocating to the Tampa Bay area from Connecticut he has toured Europe with local blues great Rock Bottom and has been a sideman for many other Bay area ites.

Jimmy's highly original but, in the pocket style has made him a sought after musician in the Bay Area today. Therefore, it is recommended that one tries "The Jimmy Griswold Experience".

Lemon Bird 2008 Rara Avis


Genre: Rock
Rate: 213 kbps VBR / 44100
Time: 00:45:32
Size: 68,22 MB

Sweden

Album Notes

Lemon Bird – the band who should not be; four personalities converging in a musical project that unites the incompatible. With their guitar dominated hard rock, Lemon Bird originates from blues oriented rock. But thanks to their wide musical background Lemon Bird goes the whole hog—country, folk and unusual rhythms speak a foreign language in their arsenal of rock songs. Lemon Bird's ambition is to break the boundaries and tear down the walls that genre-loving people have been building the past thirty years. The most important criteria are, in studio or on stage, creativity, energy, improvisation and a passion for their music. Despite all this, Lemon Bird never loses focus on the audience.

01 - Stepping Outside 03:33

Little Caesar 1990 Little Caesar




Genre: Rock
Rate: 320 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 00:55:16
Size: 126,41 MB

United States

Review by Alex Henderson

Known for their spirited remakes of soul classics, Little Caesar made some noteworthy contributions to the hard rock scene of the late 1980s and early '90s. This gritty, Bob Rock-produced CD, which draws on influences ranging from Aerosmith to Edgar Winter, may not be the most innovative recording of 1989, but it's honest and consistently satisfying. On "I Wish It Would Rain" (a Motown song recorded by both the Temptations and Gladys Knight & the Pips) and Aretha Franklin's "Chain of Fools," the unpretentious band shows how well these '60s soul pearls can work in a rock setting. And Caesar sounds just as inspired on hard-driving originals like "Wrong Side of the Tracks," "Rock-N-Roll State of Mind," and the working man's lament "Hard Times."

01 - Down-N-Dirty 04:21
