Dave Thompson 1995 Little Dave And Big Love







Genre: Blues
Rate: 256 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 00:49:16
Size: 90,17 MB

United States

Little Dave and Big Love features a set of 11 original tunes with plenty of snarling guitar and good vocals. Styles include Texas shuffles, funk and straight blues, and the general tone is very upbeat, with only one slower soul/r&b type song and one straight blues. The predominant style is hard blues and blues-rock, but the feeling never ventures into the realm of heavy blues or straight rock. Dave plays and sings lead, and is backed by a well balanced band of rhythm guitar, bass and drums. But Dave's guitar leads are the highlight of this CD. His tone is nasty and biting, due in part probably to his preference of using a quarter for a pick.

The opening funk/blues-rock cut, "Standing Up On My Own", immediately sets the stage and gets the listener's attention with a guitar intro punctuated with a searing, sustained note of high intensity. "You Took My Baby" is an up tempo blues-rocker. Then things slow down a bit for the next couple songs. One of the mellower songs on the disc, "After Hours Bar" is a moderate shuffle featuring a little light slide work. Following that is the melancholy "I'm Having It So Hard"

After a couple more blues-rock/funk tunes comes "Instrumental #7", an excellent, rowdy guitar romp smoothered with SRV overtones. A couple of cuts later comes the obligitory slow blues grind, "I Don't Care What Nobody Say", and this is a good one on which Dave plays with considerable intensity and passion. The shufflin' "Mississippi Boy" closes things out on an upbeat note.

This is definitely a CD for blues guitar fans. The tone is nasty and biting and the style aggressive. Combine the excellent guitar work with respectable vocals, above average songwriting, and a good backing band, and you have a very enjoyable CD. (http://www.electricblues.com/)

Review by Thom Owens

Deluxe Edition is a great compilation of 15 highlights from Kenny Neal's first five albums for Alligator Records. Neal's records were more consistent than those from some of his Alligator peers, but this best-of collection is welcome since it provides a nice introduction for the neophyte. And, since it isolates the cream of the crop on one record, it's also not a bad bet for serious fans who want all the good stuff in one place.

Review by William Ruhlmann

By the time of this album's release, Jeremy Spencer had been replaced by Bob Welch and Christine McVie had begun to assert herself more as a singer and songwriter. The result is a distinct move toward folk-rock and pop; Future Games sounds almost nothing like Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac. Bob Welch's eight-minute title track, featuring lead guitar from Danny Kirwan, has one of Welch's characteristic haunting melodies, and with pruning and better editing, it could have been a hit. Christine McVie's "Show Me a Smile" is one of her loveliest ballads. Initial popular reaction was mixed: the album didn't sell as well as Kiln House, but it sold better than any of the band's first three albums in the U.S. In the U.K., where the original lineup had been more successful, Future Games didn't chart at all; the same fate that would befall the rest of its albums until the Lindsey Buckingham-Stevie Nicks era.
