The Blues Band 1995 Wire Less





Genre: Blues
Rate: 320 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 01:08:01
Size: 155,62 MB

United Kingdom

If you are looking for talent over technology, then here it is: An amazing totally acoustic live set by The Blues Band, Paul Jones, Tom McGuinness, Dave Kelly, Gary Fletcher and Rob Townsend, stripping the Blues right back to basics.

Played in a ground-breaking venue, famed for its acoustics, previously the domain of the world's top Classical performers, the Snape Maltings at Aldburgh on Suffolk's wild sea coast, an 850 seat auditorium built in 1948 by composer Benjamin Britten (1913-1976) with his close friend, singer Peter Pears. The reserved Snape Maltings insisted on no amplification. No problem! The Blues Band's vast experience and repertoire came to the fore - and despite the absence of Bartok, Beethoven or Bach, the gig sold out!

Terrific tracks - real gems from the overlooked corners of blues history - such as Memphis Minnie's Frankie Jean , Bobby Bland's I'm Not Ashamed to Sing the Blues , the Mississippi Sheiks Sittin On Top Of The World , plus bonus tracks and 4 original compositions by Tom, Paul, Gary and Dave.

Detailed notes by writer Roy Bainton (who was there). Crystal clear, superbly mixed acoustic recording quality - with an exciting live ambience complimenting the mix of what was truly a memorable occasion. An innovative first for Snape Maltings, an inspired milestone for The Blues Band, and an unforgettable experience for the packed audience.

01 - San Francisco Bay Blues 03:08

J. D. Simo 2002 One Night Stand



Genre: Blues
Rate: 224 kbps CBR / 44100

United States

By the time One Night Stand was recorded in 2002, J.D. Simo had been captivating local music lovers in the Phoenix area for two years with powerhouse live gigs that displayed the overwhelming guitar skills and dynamic stage presence that left audiences of all ages blown away at every show! This CD features many of the high-energy tunes he had been featuring in his live show during this period. There are nine original tunes here that show his songwriting skills are very solid, but it is Simo's explosive guitar playing that is the main attraction throughout this rockin' CD that is J.D.'s first studio recording.

Yes, there is an awful lot of Stevie Ray Vaughan in his guitar work here, but the sheer firepower generated by J.D.'s fingers defies what any 16 year old should be able to do with a guitar! Say what you will, but this CD proves J.D. Simo can rock a guitar as well as anybody you'll hear anywhere! His BLISTERING 10 minute version of Stevie Ray's "Texas Flood" is astonishing when you realize that few guitarists besides Stevie himself could tear this song to pieces the way Simo does here! Without J.D.'s vocals, you would swear it is Stevie Ray playing on this track!! I watched Simo play this tune live many times and it never failed to bring the house down.

There is also a raw, powerful version of Freddie King's "Going Down" that is another tour de force. Simo's solos are like lightning on this one. "Doin' all right" is a nice roots rocker with a Chuck Berry flavor, and he also lays down a heartfelt rock ballad called "Til the Morning Comes". "Six String Blues" is another solid blues featuring Arizona's veteran harmonica player Hans Olson. "Capture Me", "Just Begun", and the title song are all strong Simo originals, and although his singing doesn't reach the high level of his guitar playing on this CD, he sings far better than most rock stars on the radio today. The CD ends with a soothing guitar instrumental called "City Limits". Then we are treated to J.D's "Mystery Bonus Track" which is a blues-rock classic recorded by two very familiar legendary guitarists who would be quite impressed with this young guitar master if they were alive to hear him today.

This album has a raw feel to it that sounds like it could have been taped at one of Simo's blistering bar gigs. The rock solid rhythm section here is Simo's original band from Arizona, bassist Tom Feigenbaum and drummer Thomas "Freight Train" Walker. Any blues-rock fan should find much to enjoy in this CD, but you must see J.D. Simo on stage to experience the true magnitude of his talent and presence.

I clearly remember a great show at an underground bar in Tempe Arizona a year before this CD was recorded. The place was full of young college kids who knew nothing about Simo or the great blues music he was playing. That didn't stop every single person in the bar from gathering around the stage in silence, totally captivated by Simo's electrifying performance! He gave the crowd everything he had, and I've never seen a local act hold an audience in the palm of his hand like Simo did that night. It was one of the best shows I've ever seen!

If a 16 year old can play like this, you can't help but wonder how incredible J.D. Simo will eventually become. The talent displayed on this CD is enough to blow away anybody in the Top 40 today! Do yourself a favor and check this guy out. (Ronnie Milsap)

Size: 99,38 MB

United States

Review by Cub Koda

The son of Louisiana bluesman Tabby Thomas makes an acoustic with real bite to it on this outing. Daddy Tabby joins him for a remake of "Hoodoo Party" and "Bus Station Blues," but for the rest of the album, it's mostly Chris working out on various resonator dobro guitars and harmonica. Besides nine of his originals on this 14-tracker, he boldly takes on a pair of Robert Johnson tunes ("Rambling On My Mind" and "Come On In My Kitchen") and Son House's "Death Letter Blues" in the midst of contemporary offerings like the urban "Alive" and the poppish "Wanna Die With a Smile On My Face." There's just as much of a folk vibe to this session as there is a blues one, and the blend works well for Thomas' all-encompassing style.

Tracklist:

01 - Red Mud 04:11

02 - If It Ain't One Thing, It's Two 04:00

03 - Soon This Morning Blues 03:50

FOR THE PAST couple of years Black Label have been rocking the Sydney scene and successfully touring up and down the east coast. This five piece outfit have had great reviews but are still yet to score a recording contract.

So what is the appeal of Black Label?

We are a rock-n-roll band pure and simple, we have always played rock and we come from rock backgrounds. Historically good Aussie rock bands are pub-rock bands and to pigeon-hole that even further good pub rock bands have their roots in the blues. That’s Black Label, good old blues rock and boogie.
