It's about time a blues guitarist came out with something really different. Rarely these days do I hear a new electric blues guitar release that sparks my interest, because so often the "artists" seem mired in imitation.

John McVey's "Gone to Texas" strikes me because there is really nothing to which it can be compared. I could name a few apparent influences, but McVey, as a stylist, has ventured beyond his influences to where the magic of true creation occurs.

This is a phenomenal GUITAR album. Be forewarned: it is not a vocalist's album. Although there are lyrics to every song, somehow the vocals seem secondary, simply sketching the painting. Colours and details are boldly laid out by McVey's guitar, with occasional flourishes from Joel Guzman on accordion, Riley Osbourn on keys and Kim Wilson on harp...all on a canvas of fantastic players from the Texas blues scene. The end results are vivid musical stories, fiery, fun and honest. "Gone to Texas" swept me along and then left me with a sense of satisfaction the likes of which I have not experienced from a new blues album in a very long time. (Jaime Pasekoff)

We recommend that you play this album LOUD! No SRV licks were tested or injured during the making of this album. (John McVey)
