From Mick's liner notes:
"Produced at Fabulous Rockfold Studio, deep in the heart of the Surrey Badlands, this album is about as spontaneous a piece of music as I'm capable of producing. The tracks were not only recorded first take - There was also no rehearsal at all, minimal discussion as to what we were about to play, and some of the songs were written actually as they were recorded. I just gave Russ the drummer a count and off we went. He thought he'd only come over for a rehearsal - but he attacked his Yamaha kit with attitude and kicked ass all the way. There was some post production work - (I'm not completely mad), and Dangerous Dave came in to add some harp - personally I think it's some of his best work, absolutely superb playing.
Initially I intended to leave the album as just guitar, drums and harp.. why not? But I was subsequently persuaded that there was something missing down in the bottom end, so I clicked onto the internet and bought myself a cheap bass guitar. I added it myself, clunky and deliberately farty, and I think it works. Added a few bits of keyboard and some percussion - (Linda played maraccas on "Groundhog Man" - I filled in the bass end with a can of fish food). The guitar on the album is nearly all on my Danelectro 3022 - the vocals are mainly through an AC30. I've gone back over a few of my older songs.. "Slipaway" from the "All These Blues" album gets a garage treatment, "Shake That Boogie" goes back to the 50s and "Cheap" goes back to the swamp, where it always belonged.
All the thrills and spills are there - On "Woodsman" a string broke just before we commenced the take, but I decided to plough on with five strings. Through the song I kept hitting the pick up switch accidentally and so kept randomly changing tones, at one point switching the guitar off completely. It's all there.
So the result of all this.. well what do you think? It is undoubtedly real, and I think it has something going for it - a rawness which it would be difficult to capture using a normal, more sensible recording technique. Have a listen and judge for yourself.
Here y'are then - The Rambunctious Blues Experiment. Rambunctious, according to various dictionaries, means "Boisterous and disorderly - difficult to control ". Sounds about right."

Keith Gattis - Big City Blues

Bitrate: 320K/s
Year: 2005
Time: 48:07
Size: 110,7 MB
Label: Self Released
Styles: Blues
Art: Front

Tracks Listing:
 1. Big City Blues - 3:42
 2. Reconsider - 3:53
 3. El Cerrito Place - 5:58
 4. Same to Me - 4:09
 5. Wish I Had You - 2:49
 6. Down Again - 4:28
 7. Don't Lie - 5:12
 8. The Bottom - 5:06
 9. California - 3:52
10. Hard On Me - 3:48
11. Somebody Told Me - 5:05

Coming nearly a decade after Keith Gattis' self-titled RCA album, his one and only major-label recording, Big City Blues is quite the change from Keith Gattis' slick Music Row production, which made the singer/songwriter sound like just another in an endless parade of indistinguishable hat acts. Big City Blues opens with the melodramatic title track, an anguished and mildly profane complaint set to a slow-burning arrangement of organ and a seemingly looped drum part that sounds like it could have come from a Portishead album. The rest of the album is more traditional but just as low-key, with small-combo arrangements that mostly leave the pedal steel unplugged in favor of soulful Hammond B-3 sounds and bottleneck guitar, as on the mopey "Reconsider." An ineffable sense of loss and resignation hangs over the album as a whole, one that makes it sound as if Gattis' label difficulties were the least of his worries over the lost decade. Ballad-heavy to the point that even relatively upbeat tunes like the bluesy rocker "Wish I Had You" are overlaid with sadness, Big City Blues is the dark side of the eternal optimism that powers so much country music.

Art: Full

Tracks Listing:
 1. Heart Of Soul - 3:30
 2. I Want To Thank You - 3:50
 3. Songs Of Marvin Gaye - 4:49
 4. Get It On - 3:46

11. Light A Candle - 3:23
12. Louisiana 1927 - 3:09
13. Heart Of Soul (Extended version) - 4:30

Das Album „Heart Of Soul“ ist ein echter Soul-Edelstein im Spirit der 60er und 70er Jahre, zugleich aber auch ein authentisches Album von Heute. 12 Songs hat der deutsche Sänger und Pianist Theo dafür eingespielt, Stücke, bei denen seine kraftvoll raue Stimme brillant in Szene gesetzt wurde. Die spielfreudige Band, die Theo bei den Aufnahmen in Los Angeles begleitet hat, liest sich wie das Who’s Who der US-amerikanischen Studiomusiker. Vorneweg der Schlagzeuger und Produzent Tony Braunagel, der Theo nach dessen spektakulärem Solo-Auftritt beim Unabhängigkeitskonzert Kataloniens im Juni 2013 vor 90.000 Leuten im Camp Nou-Stadion von Barcelona kennenlernte.
Unter Tony Braunagels Regie haben die Album-Aufnahmen diese wunderbare Temperatur erhalten haben, die eben jenen Soulklassikern des Great American Soulbook zu eigen ist. Mit dabei waren hier auch die Gitarristen Johnny Lee Schell und Dean Parks, die bereits u.a. für Bonnie Raitt oder Michael Jackson gearbeitet haben, der ehemalige James Brown- und Stevie Wonder-Mitstreiter Reggie McBride am Bass, Keyboarder Mike Finnigan, auf dessen Visitenkarte u.a. Jimi Hendrix, Joe Cocker und die Beatles stehen, und schließlich die absolute Percussion-Legende Lenny Castro.
Die Leidenschaft für die Soulmusik wurde im jungen Theo durch die Wilson Pickett-Single „In The Midnight Hour“ entfacht. Doch bevor er sich dem Genre mit Leib und Seele verschrieb, wandte er sich zunächst einer anderen Berufung zu, studierte Medizin und übernahm die väterliche Arztpraxis in seiner Heimatstadt Schwerte, nahe der Ruhrmetropole Dortmund. Daneben ist er inzwischen seit mehr als 30 Jahren auch das musikalische Aushängeschild der Band Soulfingers und hat, teilweise auch unter dem Künstlerpseudonym Raoul Vandetta, unzählige Konzerte gespielt sowie einige Alben veröffentlicht, auf denen er sich stets für die „good old soul music“ stark gemacht hat.
„Heart Of Soul“ startet mit dem von Theo komponierten Titelsong, dessen mächtig-prägnante Gitarrenriffs eine tiefe Verbeugung vor den Rolling Stones sind. Eine erquickende Reverenz an die große Blütezeit des Soul bilden „I Want To Thank You“ und „Songs Of Marvin Gaye“. Und wie souverän Theo auch jede Coverversion meistert, demonstriert er mit groove-betonten Interpretationen von „Get It On“ (T.Rex) und „I Don’t Need No Doctor“ (Ray Charles). Das Album ist fürwahr Balsam für die Seele und die dringende Empfehlung muss schlichtweg lauten: Diesem Souldoktor können sie sich bedenkenlos anvertrauen – auch in maximaler Dosierung.
Das Album „Heart Of Soul“ erscheint als CD (im Digipack), als 180 Gramm-Vinyl-LP (inkl. Downloadcard) und als Digital Download am 21.10.2016 auf dem Label Staages Music im Vertrieb von Cargo Records, Wuppertal.
Am 26.11.2016 wird Theo sein „Heart Of Soul“-Album im Rahmen einer Release-Party in der Rohrmeisterei in Schwerte live vorstellen.
Und im März 2017 ist Theo special guest auf der Tour von Carl Carlton und dessen Band!
