June Six Pack of Roadhouse Blues

Six blues rock tunes for June!  All have links in Spotify for you to take a listen!!!

Joe BonamassaSloe Gin

Title cut of his 2007 album and the song that elevated Joe Bonamassa from simply a great blues rocker to one of the most talented singers, songwriters, and guitarists of his generation.

Beth HartAm I the One

She burst onto the blues rock scene in 1996 with entrancing live performances that reminded many of Janis Joplin.  From her first album, Immortal, this song represents her at her soul baring finest.

Alvin LeeBluest Blues

One of the finest guitarists to ever pick up the instrument, British rocker and blues man Alvin Lee had a career that spanned over 45 years. He graced the stage at the Woodstock festival in 1969 and as the years passed  by put out some fine blues tunes including this classic song.  Alvin passed away in 2013.

Albert CummingsHoochie Coochie Man/Dixie Chicken Medley

A custom home builder by day and fantastic blues man by night, Albert Cummings gives an invigorated live performance of the Muddy Waters and Little Feat tunes on this cut….incredible!

Gary MooreParisienne Walkway

Irishman Gary Moore started off in the seventies as a member of Thin Lizzy. He drifted in and out of the band as the years went by and by the nineties was a full fledged blues rocker drawing huge audiences where ever he played. He originally recorded this song in the late seventies but released a live version in 1993 that took the  blues world by storm. Gary passed away in 2011.

Kenny Wayne ShepherdDeja Voodoo

Inspired by meeting and seeing Stevie Ray Vaughan perform at the age of 7, this native of Shreveport, Louisiana released his first album, Ledbetter Heights, in 1995 at the age of eighteen.  It included this blue rock gem that shot the album to #1. In the years since, Kenny Wayne has become one of the most recognized blues rock performers on the planet.  And his latest album, The Traveler, is simply fantastic also!

A Fierce Shot of the Rockin’ Blues – Sean Chambers

Sean Chambers

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With a great roadhouse blues voice tinged with the spirit of Johnny Winter and a  guitar style reminiscent of both Gary Moore and Alvin Lee, Sean Chambers is my first nominee for rockin’ blues artist of 2017.  His new album, Trouble & Whiskey, is an intense display of virtuoso guitar work and inspired vocals.  He does a great job of covering B.B. King’s “Be Careful with a Fool” and absolutely tears up Canned Heat’s “Bullfrog Blues“.  And “Cut off my Right Arm” features some bad ass guitar licks.  “Gonna Groove” is funked up blues perfect for dancin’ to on a Saturday night at your favorite juke joint.  “I Need Your Lovin‘” is just incredible blues rock and “Sweeter Than a Honey Bee” is some fine swamp blues..appropriate for this Florida based artist.

Sean truly shines on the grindin blues title cut, “Trouble and Whiskey” and the sultry blues rocker “Handyman” (with Jimmy Bennett).  And I absolutely loved the instrumental “Travelin’ North” featuring New Jersey’s bad ass John Ginty on keyboards. The slidin blues cut “Bottle Keeps Staring at Me” conjured visions of Johnny Winter and is sure to be a hit.

I seldom recommend every song on a CD but this is a pleasant exception. (My second in a row!) His talent should come as no surprise since he honed his skills playing with the great Hubert Sumlin starting back in 1998 and he has been payin his dues ever since…hopefully it will now pay off in a big way!  This is my first exposure to Sean and I intend to go back and listen to some of his other albums including “The Rock House Sessions” which was produced by Reese Wynans.

Sean will be touring the rest of June in Florida and then wander up to Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, and Massachusetts in July!  I can only hope he will add a date in Connecticut so that I can get a shot of his bad ass rockin’ blues live!
