Jon Diamond's opening chord on the first(and title) song of Dana Fuchs' 'LOVE TO BEG', let's you know this is not for the faint of heart. 'LOVE TO BEG' comes right at you from beginning to end. It's an album that has a Blues base and a Rock and Roll edge! It showcase's a solid rhythm section, Diamond's stellar guitar playing and Miss Fuchs' amazing voice. The obvious comparisons to Janis Joplin and Melissa Etheridge can be heard. You can also hear a flavor of one of the most underrated singers of all time - Suzi Quatro!! Dana's voice ranges notes and genres. She rocks as hard as anyone, has well respected blues chops and even throws in some Gospel and Country samplings just for good measure.

There are many stand out songs on this disc. The title track is an ass kicker about love and reconciliation. 'NOTHING'S WHAT I CRY FOR' laments the sometimes emptiness of love with an OUTLAWS feel to it. 'GOLDEN EYE' has the earmarks of a single. It's a love song, but not a happy one. In fact, if it's happily ever after is what you're looking for, this cd is not for you. That's because 'LOVE TO BEG' is real! Real life, real feelings. This is most epitomized by the extremely poignant, 'KEEP ON ROLLIN''. It deals with a man's suicide because of a lost love, not knowing she wanted to come back - 'But heaven just couldn't wait'. It tells you, 'There's nothing to lose you can't find'. Jon Diamond's guitar playing is solid throughout, but really stands out on the trifecta of songs, 'PRETTY GIRL', 'I'VE BEEN LOVING YOU TOO LONG' and 'WHAT YOU SEE'. 'I'VE BEEN LOVING YOU TOO LONG' is the only cover song here. I truly believe Otis Redding would have been more than pleased with Dana's version!

Every song on 'LOVE TO BEG' is very good, some are great! It is more than worth your time and money. And if you get the chance to see Dana Fuchs live, do it! She puts on an amazing show and is a genuine Sweetheart!!! (V. HEALEY)
