Don Cavalli 2007 Cryland (LL)

Genre: Blues
Rate: 237 kbps VBR / 44100 from lossless source!
Time: 00:38:23
Size: 69,01 MB


Cryland is blues. It uses a lean, flexible band, and highlights a slightly phased guitar. The tracks all stand as close to pure 12-bar as you can achieve without actually aiming at blues purism. This extremely pallet massaging work could be from 1970 for its clear production and adherence to old delta forms.

But what really got me about Cavalli is his voice. He has a light alto and sings every track with a laid back-but never detached-vibrato. Now unless you are Robert Plant or Burton Cummings or Rob Thomas, a class A set of pipes is rare. But Carvalli understands the art of great singing, staying a fraction of an inch back from the music, letting the music carry him. You can almost see him moaning with a guitar on a depression era Alabama street corner.

Get it. (Bill Your 'Free Form FM Print DJ)

On a rainy night in March 1999, The Bob Halperin Trio entered a small New Hampshire studio to record a two track demo. The session went so well they decided to record an entire live set. This is that explosive live set. Circulated amongst friends and family since 1999 and now released for the first time commercially, it is a collection of blues standards presented by three ferocious players, the rhythm section of Chris Wood on bass and J. T. McKenna on drums fronted by the guitar mastery of Bob Halperin.

Doug Cox 1999 Life Is So Peculiar

Genre: Blues
Rate: 224 kbps CBR / 44100

Review by Mark Allan

The third album by the Canadian dobro wizard primarily offers agreeable, laid-back blues epitomized by the hammy title track, a vocal duet with Amos Garrett. Hearing the reggae tune "Johnny Too Bad" played on dobro is a pleasant surprise. Besides a tasteful selection of covers by Leadbelly, Blind Blake, Memphis Slim, and even Mel Tormé, Doug Cox plays four of his own tunes. The goofy "My First Bike" is a striking contrast to "The Blues Came to Canada," a lengthy litany of injustice in a country not known as a blues hotbed.

Album Notes

LGM's latest album, "Cradle to the Grave" has been released worldwide. The title track single from the album is now receiving airplay on the Walmart Worldwide Radio Network, Indie Artist Radio and and is available at all digital download sites. It has been released to XM and Sirius Satellite Radio Networks. German, French and Polish music stores are carrying the new album, and it is also been released to over 100 radio markets nationally, along with all the major music publications.

The album was mixed by recording engineer, Jeff Brocaw, whose credits include 34 gold and platinum albums (Robert Cray, BB King). Jeff has also been nominated three times for Grammy awards. Mastering was performed by Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound in NYC. This year alone, Sterling Sound was nominated for a total of sixty-three Grammy Awards. As Greg Calbi put it, this album has "captured the Gov't Mule/Allman Brothers sound".

Liquid Groove Mojo is: Joe Pitts, Darrell Davis, Al Hagood and Brian Blankenship. These four musicians have a unique ability to come together and play as tight as a three piece power trio and turn right around and jam with improvisational guitar solos reminiscent of the legendary guitarists that have inspired them. Pitts and Davis has a strong musical background with having played over 600 shows together. Pitts has studied music at Berklee College of Music and Davis has studied music at the University of Arkansas. The rhythm section is nothing short of phenomenal. Hagood and Blankenship are a well oiled machine with a huge low end and a powerful drum groove that is considered to be one of the best rhythm sections around. Monsterous guitar tones, soaring slide guitar work, and soulful vocals round out this quartet's musical abilities. Prolific songwriting makes this bands' sound timeless as well as contemporary.

"Cradle to the Grave", was written mostly by Pitts and Davis, either individually, or as a writing team. Also, included on the album, is a song by Warren Haynes (Gov't Mule/Allman Brothers), and a song by the legendary Kinsey Report. It was recorded at Lonesome Oak Studio, in Arkansas, over a 6 month period.

Monaco Blues Band 1984 Monaco Blues Band

Genre: Blues
Rate: 320 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 00:37:38
Size: 86,02 MB



The MONACO BLUES BAND started in 1982 in the city of Västerås, Sweden. The name came from the nightclub where the band was formed after request from the owner who needed a little more action on Sundays. This was in the time of jazzrock with John McLaughlin, Al DiMeola and other super exilibristic performers that the audiences by that time got tired of.

MBB began with strictly John Mayall and Paul Butterfield covers, with their versions of bluesmaterial and it was an absolute success. People got crazy, dancing on the tables, flipped out totally when they heard MBB's boogie-jump-shuffle versions of those old songs. It didn't last long till the first tours started, first in Scandinavia and then Holland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Poland and USA. (Germany was like a second home for the band with 54 tours from 1984 till now) with many TV and radio performances.

JW plays in the tradition of blues greats like Albert Collins, Lonnie Mack, Ronnie Earl, and Jimmie Vaughan. He can rock, too, although rock/blues is not his thing. JW wrote most of the tunes on this new album. Roy Orbison and Little Milton are listed as the authors of the two remainders. There's a new twist to JW's music on Seventh Hour. Without ever sounding old-fashioned or even outdated, JW is mixing his blues roots with rock guitar sounds from the 1960s.

Wow. This is quite possibly the most fun, most raucous collection of field recordings I've heard in my life. Sure, I love the (usually) more somber works of folks like Leadbelly and Mississippi John Hurt, but the Memphis Jug Band rock out! The jug is used to great effect... its limitations as a pseudo-instrument are constantly transcended on this set. It sounds awesome, as does the frequent use of kazoo.

The Memphis Jug Band is totally punk rock! Check out "Cocaine Habit Blues"... any ignorant pop dork who thinks that the Velvet Underground invented "dark" drug songs needs to listen to this song (not to mention a million others from this era) and get schooled. I've never done drugs in my life, but that doesn't make this song any less awesome. It's the most rock and roll thing I've heard in a long time. (a customer)

Album Notes

The Seminoles, Timuquans and other Native Floridians harvested, boiled and ate the hearts of the Sabal palm tree. Steamed and served as a stew it’s a rustic delicacy similar to artichoke hearts and traditional cabbage. That essence of the “real” Florida is the basis for Swamp Cabbage’s inspirational archetype: a mish mash of genres boiled into a stew of mixed blues, jazz, soul, southern rock, Appalachian and even classical vibes.

Swamp Cabbage was formed in 2001 by veteran guitarist Walter Parks, who built an international career as the lead guitarist for Woodstock legend Richie Havens. Parks, who recently marked his debut as a solo artist with the release of his self-titled album earlier this year, formed the group along with bassist Jim DeVito and drummer Jagoda as a way to explore his southern musical influences.

Swamp Cabbage – using a guitar, bass and drum format -- sounds like a southern rock band but “thinks” like a jazz, blues or classical trio. Harmonically, their sound is more complex than the blues. Rhythmically it’s akin to New Orleans jazz. Lyrically, they offer a comedic travelogue through Park's North Florida upbringing, all complimented by his electric guitar style -- a mélange of Scott Joplin's ragtime and Jerry Reed's bayou pickin. DeVito's bass, barks like a tuba through a fuzz box, and is backed by Jagoda's New Orleans funeral parade style drummin'.
