While retro-rock proponents like the Rev. Horton Heat and Amazing Royal Crowns might be quasi-famous for bringing music with such a straightforward approach to the masses, the Paladins (strait outta San Diego) are the veterans in the biz, the dog-eared, door-to-door, blue-colloar rockers who don't get no 15 minutes of fame, but make the most out of every night pouring their lifeblood-music-into the crowds that pack into the nightclubs, dives and late-hour bars all across the country. One pair of ears and feet at a time. Let me ask you something. Do you take good care of your car? Do you treat your woman (or your man as it may be) right? You probably said, "yeah", but when was the last time you took her dancing for no reason, or you dragged against some sucker who had no idea what you had under the hood? Thought So. Now put this here album on and blast it with the windows down. Your car seems to wanna go faster doesn't it? And your lady-friend? She'll tell ya...Put on your dancing shoes, tonite's the night (This is a NEW version of the 1994 LP, "Ticket Home" with another 4 tracks)

Junior Lee Klegseth 2007 Long Way Home

Album Notes

From Junior Lee Klegseth, the founder and guitarist of The RedHot Blues, comes a strong Americana / roots rock debut as singer/songwriter. While it was his intense guitar playing that brought him to the attention of blues fans, true fans of the band came to enjoy the many Klegseth-penned tunes found on the RHB releases. Here, the only tune even close to blues is the two minute She Got, but even there the funky bass line and drums only hint at the form.

On "Long Way Home", Klegseth throws his hat in the ring with artists like John Hiatt, Steve Earle, John Mellencamp and Drive-by Truckers. The songwriting craft Klegseth has appreciated and partook of since childhood is apparent here, too, with songs like Long Way Home, that laments how long it takes to get back to a place, only to find it isn't what we wanted.

The CD opener, "Crazy Things" belongs on the car stereo on a Midwestern summer day, with the windows rolled down. In fact many of the tracks appear to be an homage to times past--"66 Chevelle", "Dance", "Old Man's Words" and the title track. "I Want What's Coming to Me" is a working class anthem, replete with a large crowd backing vocal, that makes one think of betrayals by companies like Enron. On the harder rock side are two tunes full of attitude that speak to the times and, more likely, to the present administration: I Wish You Could See is a spirited raw rocker with sarcastic and biting lyrics such as, "You heard a voice on high, you were saved again / I thought you were safer as a sinner than a saved man who sins."

The sentiment continues in the fresh sound of "Nobody", with it's greasy bass line, slide banjo and heavy guitars. But like most songwriters, the true test is the ballad, and here Klegseth shines with the smartly-crafted "I Wanna Be" and "Without You", both worthy of becoming classics.

Tracklist:

01 - Crazy Things 03:38

02 - 66 Chevelle 04:40

03 - Dance 04:17

04 - Long Way Home 05:36

05 - I Want What's Coming To Me 04:43

06 - She Got 01:53

07 - Old Man's Words 05:28

08 - I Wanna Be 05:17

09 - Wish You Could See 04:46

10 - Nobody 06:00

11 - Some Things 03:37

12 - Without You 04:50

This album is absolutely phenomenal. Her voice is strong and she knows her range. She has the great ability to know when to growl, and knows when to leave space between the words / notes. The band is grounded in good electric blues, is solid, with solos that match the material (i.e. musical).

I have read comments that she is trying to channel Janis Joplin - I don't agree as she has her own style, albeit influenced by Joplin - with a heavy dose of Grace Slick. (Herodotus)

Tracklist:

01 - Almost Home 05:14

Review by Bob Gottlieb

The loping bass, punctuating guitar, and drumstick slaps let you know right away that you have an Amazing Rhythm Aces release on your hands. This is the first good release of their material on disc which contains some wonderful quality material. The Aces are purveyors of rock-inflected country music, or countrified rock, and this amalgam is flavored with a healthy dose of blues. The intelligent lyrics are backdropped by instrumentation that perfectly augments the sentiments of the lyrics. The lead voice on most songs is Russell Smith, whose voice has gotten even better and more reflective with the passing of years. The Aces have maintained the excellent lyric content of the songs, and when mixed with their simple but elegant arrangements, they produce simply great songs. Hard to find, but worth the effort.


Tracklist:

01 - Out Of The Blue 05:07

02 - Love's On The Way 03:44

03 - Waitin' On Sundown 04:20

04 - Cold, Cold Rain 04:59

05 - Oh, Lucky Me 04:18

Rick Estrin & The Nightcats 2009 Twisted





Genre: Blues
Rate: 277 kbps VBR / 44100
Time: 00:52:02
Size: 100,49 MB

United States

This is Rick Estrin's first Alligator release with his own Nightcats, following the retirement of Little Charlie Baty from touring in 2008. It is a terrific performance - full of sharp harmonica playing and great singing on a batch of excellent new songs. Rick's in top form here, especially on "P.A. Slim is Back" and the knock-out, Little Walter-inspired instrumental "Take it Slow." Kid Anderson on guitar is no slouch, and following in the footsteps of Little Charlie ain't easy. Make no mistake about it: Rick Estrin is one of the premier blues musicians of this generation. A sensational showman, award-winning songwriter, and harmonica virtuoso, Estrin has put his indelible stamp on "Twisted" for all his fans to enjoy. Highly recommended! (A Customer)

Tracklist:

01 - Big Time 03:08

02 - Back From The Dead 02:49

03 - U B U 04:01
