Greece

Blues Wire started their career in 1983 as Blues Gang and quickly established themselves as one of the best European blues bands. Bluesmen visiting Greece in the 80's-90's would often enlist them as their backing band because of their deep knowledge of the blues. They've backed Louisiana Red, Katie Webster, John Hammond, Carey and Lurrie Bell, Angela Brown and many others. Having seen many famous blues artists live, I can honestly say The Blues Wire were up there with the best of them.

This album was their first under the "Blues Wire" moniker. The production is way ahead of all other albums of the Greek Alternative scene of the time and thankfully free of 80's trappings that now make you wince when you listen to old "electric blues" albums of that era. The sound is definitively electric but not overtly rock. The playing is excellent throughout and sound is reminiscent of 50's-60's Chicago blues. Orchestration features two guitars (lead and rhythm or slide), bass, drums and the occasional keyboard and harmonica. Highlights include classics "Who's Been Talking" and "Diving Duck" and Zaikos originals "Fat Meets Bones" (instrumental) and "Blues Junkie" (with female lead vocals). (kostas_ef)
