Jimmy Bowskill 2003 Old Soul

Genre: Blues
Rate: 256 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 00:54:01
Size: 98,82 MB


Even though he is a bit older now (and still kickin' bootie) Jimmy Bowskill can wail. This Canadian kid has more talent in his pinky than most young artists these days, and I hope sometime in the future I can see him live. He really sold it for me when I heard Honeybee and Weekend Fish Fry on Old Soul. I am now in the process of listening to his latest stuff. Give this guy a chance, he's the new, bright face of the blues. (viajera80)

Genre: Blues
Rate: 320 kbps CBR / 44100

Size: 102,81 MB

United States

Brimming with energy, John’s new CD is tougher and edgier. Németh re-visits the inspired sounds of the 50's and 60's when Chicago blues was adding funk and rock to the mix. By reinvigorating the sound of vintage American R&B with his spine-tingling vocals and considerable songwriting skills, John has crafted a timeless slice of American music. Frequent collaborator Elvin Bishop guests on two tracks.

This may not be as "Raw" as Debbies first 2 albums, but, I think it's obvious that it wasn't meant to be. She also has Tab Benoit & Coco Montoya as guests (if you don't know about these guys you're missing out). If you're already a Debbie fan don't pass on this one. (B. Thompson)

Tommy Conwell & The Little Kings 1997 Sho Gone Crazy

Genre: Rock
Rate: 128 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 00:35:47
Size: 32,72 MB

United States

Rockabilly fans can celebrate a practically perfect album in Tommy Conwell and the Little Kings' Sho' Gone Crazy. The music starts fast and furious, and it never really slows down. To top it off, the quality of the music, lyrics and performances is as fine as anyone could ask for. The liner notes claim this is Tommy Conwell doing music on his own terms; in that case, he should always be allowed to do music on his own terms if it is going to be as fine as this.

From the first number, "Pony Time," the pattern of lively, hopping fun reminiscent of the '50s is set. "All God's Children Wanna Rock" bops along and proves that if they don't beforehand, they certainly will when they hear this song. "Moaning," despite its sad-sounding title, is a moving musical number that will tear up the dance floor, starring the sassy sax of Darryl Ray Jenkins. The funny, snappy lyrics of "Bad Haircut" keep the pace and add even more light and levity to the proceedings, as does "Going on Down Here." "Want You to Feel Good" mixes Conwell's fine vocals with that snappy sax for an unforgettable swing. "Mashed Potatoes" brings in a slight change of style without slowing the pace, but does not fail to show off its rockabilly roots. Heart and soul is poured into the performance of "Let Go," and I defy anyone to keep their feet still while this one rocks along. "Get Down" is a fine, frisky, frenzied tune that sweeps all in its path along with it.

Continuing the crazy, swinging pace is the solid song "Betty Jean." "That's All" is another fine number with just the right feel to it. You have to love the sax in "Bottle Woman," a smooth, sweet swing. I knew they would eventually have to slow down, but not by very much -- or not so that you notice a great deal with "It's Raining." It's a sad ballad of lost love and rain, nostalgic in feel, but fresh and lively. "Boogie Picking" is the ultimate in truth in advertising, and these boys do not give their instruments any rest in the final song on the CD.

The group consists of Conwell on guitar and vocals, Jenkins on tenor saxophone, Pat Coppa on bass and Paul Ramagano on drums. They should all take several moments to pat themselves on the back for a job well done. It is not often that a CD comes along with every song a winner and played with such skill and obvious love of the genre. (

Dieter Kropp 2010 Schönen Gruß Vom Blues!

Genre: Blues
Rate: 256 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 00:40:35
Size: 74,26 MB


Der Mann mit der Mundharmonica ist zurück! Seitdem er sich von seiner Homecombo, den 'Barbeque Boys', getrennt hat und seinen Weg alleine geht, ist viel passiert.

Und das Ergebnis ist diese neue CD mit 14 Stücken, die durchweg auf Deutsch gesungen werden. Und was soll ich sagen, Dieter Kropp hat sich selbst übertroffen! Durch den Einsatz von Bläsern ist eine Scheibe entstanden, die wirklich alle glücklich machen kann. Von Swing über den geliebten Blues bis hin zu Rock 'n' Roll, diese Scheibe bietet alles. Sie startet mit einem beschwingten Swingblues und endet mit einer Bluesballade, doch alle Songs sind mit dem typischen Kropp'schen Augenzwinkern getextet und komponiert.

Dieter Kropp ist ja nicht nur ein hervorragender Musiker, sondern auch ein genialer Entertainer, und das schimmert sogar auf dieser Studio-CD durch. Er paart Rock'n'Roll, Blues und Retro-Schlager mit seiner energiegeladener Frische, Schnoddrigkeit und entwaffnender Ehrlichkeit ohne dabei den Spaß aus den Augen zu verlieren.

Seine Live-Auftritte sind immer eine gelungene Mischung aus hervorragender Musik und seiner charmanten Performance, wer Dieter Kropp einmal live gesehen hat, wird wissen was ich meine. Aber auch beim zweiten und dritten Hören wissen die durchweg witzigen und intelligenten Texte zu gefallen. Dies ist eindeutig keine Einweg-Musik, sondern Genuss für eine lange Zeit. Für mich ist diese Scheibe eine der unterhaltsamsten Neuerscheinungen der letzten Zeit und sicher mein ständiger Wegbegleiter in den Sommer. (Ambo-Art)

Kellie Rucker 2006 Ain't Hit Bottom

Genre: Blues-Rock
Rate: 320 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 00:44:54
Size: 102,68 MB

United States

Kellie Rucker is perhaps one of this country's best kept secrets, but shouldn't be. Her CD Ain't Hit Bottom is, in short, awesome. Kellie anchors this well-produced CD with drop-dead gorgeous, gritty vocals and a mean blues harp. While other artists make good contributions, it's Kellie who takes center stage and a commanding ownership all 11 tunes. Even the photo of Kellie on the front of the CD invites you to listen, which you will do many times. (Les Reynolds)

Mostar Sevdah Reunion 2001 Saban Bajramovic - A Gypsy Legend

Genre: Gypsy
Rate: 256 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 01:06:09
Size: 121,03 MB

Bosnia & Herzegovina

Sadan Bajramovic is definitely an old-school gypsy singer, with several decades of experience behind him. But don't confuse age with taking it easy. His voice might not have the sharp edge it once did, but the energy is quite apparent, and there's no lack of commitment to the music, especially as he's backed by one of the best gypsy groups around on this set of mostly well-known gypsy songs.

His version of "Djelem" is nothing short of stunning, but an emotional spin on an old favorite. But it's just one among many jewels here, with everything electrifying, and the backing, mixing Rom music with some jazz, is every bit as effective as the singing. But it's the final cut, "Pitao Sam Malog Puza," which is the real killer, with Bajramovic letting loose some fearsome howls and singing as if his life depended on it.

Female gypsy singers have received a fair amount of notice in the past. If you want to hear one of the male greats, this is the place. (
