11. Your Kingdom Comin' Down - 4:51

A fiery and intense blend of Rock, Blues, and psych-folk—an adventurous journey that fuses a hard-edged Chicago attitude to the most southern place on earth.This album takes you on an atmospheric adventure: from the cold tundra of a hard world to the passions of real love. It snakes through the swamp, passes through love’s playgrounds, gets lost in the mist of a forest, and ends up in a flame of fire and light.
Robert’s brand of music, Rockabluesic, is punctuated by some of the best guitar you will ever hear. On top of that, the vocals can be haunting or bone-shaking.
It has been variously described as breathtaking, life-changing, soothing, and powerful enough to drive a railroad spike. One reviewer wrote it’s “like a master painter using brush-and-palette.”

Bobby Messano spent several years as a sideman before making his debut as a leader in 1998 with Dominion Roads. recorded with his supporting band NBO (New Blues Orchestra), the record is an engaging set of contemporary blues-rock. Most impressively, Messano has written or co-written 11 of the 12 songs on the record, and even if they don't jump out and grab you by the collar, they're sturdy and entertaining. Occasionally, the production is too slick, but it matches Messano's style -- he's classy, sophisticated and maybe a bit too well-scrubbed, but that just means he wants you to feel comfortable and welcome. And Dominion Roads certainly is an inviting, welcome debut.

You see the Music in the hands of a young Master ...

Nico glides effortlessly between Rockin'Beats and Soulfullgrooves, with confidence and grace. Drawing passionately from a wide variety of traditionnal roots Music influences, while still maintening a fresh original sound, with clever and creative songwriting.
BIG SANDY ( Legendary Roots Music Artist - California )

The ability to precisely copy the classics is remarkable enough, but
Nico is so much more than a trained parrot.
An unbreakable character !
The compositions and arrangements are masterful, filled with a thousand good ideas every second.
CHRIS CASONI ( Rock & Folk Magazine )

So many bands find what they excel at, and simply reiterate their strengths on following recordings. Nico’s band is completely the opposite, they are a dynamic and constantly evolving band that explores deeply the music we love

Beginning with almost Dickensian roots, working in his parents Felice and Lidia’s Italian restaurant in Queens, washing dishes, cleaning the sidewalk, and touring the jungle-like meat markets of the Bronx, Joe Bastianich’s life charts a culinary adventure that ends with this nice Italian boy becoming one of America’s premier restaurateurs — as well as a New York Times bestselling author and TV personality.
Joe and his partners preside over two dozen beloved eateries worldwide and in 2010, they teamed up with Italian retail pioneer Oscar Farinetti to bring Eataly, the world’s largest artisanal food and wine market, to New York. The North and South American branches have since flourished, with locations in Chicago, São Paolo, the World Trade Center, Boston, and most recently, Los Angeles.
A sound Joe - that combines many styles, from country to folk to American rock.

12. Why I Do What I Do - 2:37

The release of his latest project, I DID WHAT I WANTED TO, is a reflection of Roger’s 50 years as a professional musician. “I am very excited to be releasing my 25th CD. The title track, “I DID WHAT I WANTED TO, says it all. Some like my music and some don’t, but that never mattered. I just set out to do what it was that felt right to me. Over the years, I’ve met a lot of great people, producers, and critics who have positively embraced what I do. It’s been a great run, but as they say in the old country, ‘It ain’t over yet’!” If you like guitar driven blues rock, fluid and intricate finger style guitar picking, and emotional songwriting, you are at the right place. Roger “Hurricane” Wilson has made his own mark on the music world. The legendary Les Paul once said about Roger, “This guy plays some great blues.” Atlanta treasure Francine Reed stated that, Roger “Hurricane” Wilson is a force to be reckoned with.” With over a million miles under his belt, he has shared the stage with such notable artists as B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Little Milton, Hubert Sumlin, Willie “Big Eyes” Smith, Charlie Musselwhite, Jorma Kaukonen, Dicky Betts, Delbert McClinton, Taj Mahal, and many more. And if that isn’t enough, and don’t you think it ought to be, as a result of his Blues In The Schools Program, The Oklahoma Blues Hall of Fame thought him worthy enough to induct him in 2015.

Mijn eerste live kennismaking met Howlin’ Stone was eind augustus 2014 op de Varkensmarkt in Culemborg en later begin oktober in Nieuw Vennep tijdens de Dutch Blues Challenge van de Dutch Blues Foundation. Helaas waren dat maar 20 minuten, maar ook de 2e indruk was uitstekend. Tijdens die Challenge vond ik ze een verademing. Heerlijke band die ongedwongen en zonder zenuwen, zo leek het althans, hun ding stonden te doen.
Howlin’ Stone bestaat uit Tom Janssen (lead-singer and guitar), Thimo Gijezen (bass player), Daan Geerlings (guitar) en Juliën Rapmund (drums).
Op een druilerige zaterdag in februari zag ik Howlin’ Stone bij de heren van BluesinWijk in het voorprogramma van Howlin’ Bill om de lente in te luiden. Hoewel, voorprogramma… 1 ½ uur spelen is gewoon een volledige gig te noemen. De wolf was reeds naar Duitsland vertrokken, aldus BluesinWijk gastheer Arie Verheul in zijn aankondiging, maar de wolf had gezien dat het snor zat met de Blues in Wijk bij Duurstede en met het gegrom van Tom!
Howlin’ Stone gaf er een klinkend optreden weg. Deze jonge honden staan helaas nog niet zoveel in deze regio, het is ook een flink stuk rijden vanuit Limburg naar het midden van het land, maar het is ons hun reis meer dan waard kan ik melden vanaf mijn luie bureaustoel. De heren hadden een vette gig gespeeld en na afloop natuurlijk hun cd gekocht, waar van elke verkochte cd één euro naar de Sean Costello Foundation gaat.
‘Slow Blues In A’ vangt aan met, inderdaad, een slowblues ‘Do My Own Thing’ (Johnny Taylor). Een akoestisch gitaarloopje met de schurende stem van Tom ineens daar om de hoek komend. Ingetogen, maar stomend. Laat het achterste van zijn tong nog niet zien, maar de vulkaan staat op uitbarsten. Ineens is daar versterking van drum, gitaar en bas, maar dan sterft het alweer weg.
Groovend begint een paar seconden later echter alweer ‘The Devil is Watching You’, uit eigen pen. Een lekker uptempo nummer met een heerlijke rhythm gitaartje en wat solo werk er doorheen geweven. Dit nummer doet een beetje Hoax-achtig aan, maar is een van de drie eigen nummers op deze cd. Verder staan er covers op van o.a. Robert Johnson, Sean Costello, Jeremy Spencer en Jay Hawkins. De schurende stem is van Tom Janssens. Tom’s stem is krachtig, pakkend, dwingend, kortom je kan er niet omheen en zal nu al bijna ongeëvenaard zijn in Nederland. De blueswereld is echter is iets groter dan Nederland alleen dus laten we “en omstreken” er ook maar bijslepen.
Maar er is meer! Daan Geerlings, de andere gitarist van Howlin’ Stone heeft een iets meer gelikte stem in vergelijking met Tom, maar dat maakt het wel zo afwisselend. Zo is te horen op Love ‘Breaks You Down’, waarop hij op zijn gitaar ook nog excelleert. Ook live was ik onder de indruk. Heerlijk nummer. Daan zingt met regelmaat een nummer, zodat uw oren tijdens de optredens van Howlin Stone enkele rustmomenten heeft. Tijdens de live optredens speelt Thimo Gijezen nog wel eens op contrabas, zo zag ik in Culemborg. Geeft toch net weer even iets extra’s. Deze tweede cd ‘Slow Blues In A’ van de heren van Howlin’ Stone is een prima cd en ik mag hopen dat dit pas het begin is.

Dutch blues/rock guitar sensation Ruben Hoeke is a tasteful-yet-incendiary player who is starting to make waves far outside of his native land. The new Ruben Hoeke Band album, All Saints, gains lift off November 1st 2019 on Butler Records and is expected to grab rock fans by the scruff of the neck and get them clued into what they’ve been missing. Hoeke is a large talent who would stand just as tall in the 70s and 80s guitar music heyday as he does now and has the classic combination of tone, licks, and songwriting ability firmly in his back pocket. All Saints puts his skills in the perfect context to win over the world at large and become one of the leading artists in the New Classic Rock scene that’s been building for the past few years.
All Saints is the sixth Ruben Hoeke Band release and features Hoeke’s brother Eric on drums, Mike on bass, and Lucas on vocals. The four players are a formidable musical unit with chops to burn and the wisdom to know when to light them up. The band tracked the new record at Captain Hook Studio in three intense weeks of sessions that wrung the best out of each musician and left them blistered, battered, and fully spent. The result was well worth the pain, however, and All Saints has “breakthrough album” written all over it. Pieter Bas Borger mixed and mastered All Saints and did a wonderful job of capturing the sound and spirit of Ruben Hoeke and the band. The tracks feel alive and in the moment, as proper rock music should, and the tones are corpulent and immediate. The opening track, “Get Bit,” is the kind of strutting, energetic rock and roll that pulls no punches and delivers the delectably dangerous vibe that made Aerosmith into a legend in the 1970s. Lucan and Ruben are ideal foils for each other and they definitely catch lightning in a bottle on this one. “Easy Does It” rocks hard, building verse tension that explodes into a tight chorus and pushing the whole thing over the cliff during Hoeke’s ripping solo. It’s a stadium-worthy jam that comes off as genuine and authentic, not just a replication of rock’s glorious past. That “true rock believer” realness permeates every track on All Saints and is what makes it such a special record. This isn’t wiseacre, ironic hipster music–it’s the work of players who know that tough, human-made rock and roll will always be viable. “Been A Long Time” is a righteous acoustic guitar-driven cut that lets Ruben show off his slide playing over an audience-moving beat. “Forafter Always” is a good, pace-changing ballad that breaks up the rock songs for a moment with a bit of U2-ish radio-friendly goodness. It’s nice to see that the band has an actual different gear to switch to and the guys show a pop influence here that totally shifts the mood of the album for a few moments.
The back end of All Saints has a couple more mood swings that show Hoeke’s depth and the band’s craftiness. “Sally Went To The Shore” is smooth and melodic pop/rock with a twinge of Neil Diamond to the verse vocal melody and some extra-flavorful rhythm and lead work from Mr. Hoeke. The last song is the haunting and delicate “Love Is Blindness,” a slow, cinematic track that floats in the nighttime air and contains some of Hoeke’s most restrained yet dynamic playing. He goes from soft-spoken, emotive lines to the raging wails of a soul on the edge. It ends back in the shadows where it began and leaves listeners wrapped in its early-morning darkness.Ruben Hoeke is clearly the real deal and has a super-hot set of music on his hands with All Saints. He’s a great player who can write parts and deliver cool guitar work in the context of a group that plays four-minute songs. His band is equally adept and creative. Plan on hearing a lot about this crew in the near future. (https://www.rockandbluesmuse.com/2019/10/17/review-all-saints-by-ruben-hoeke-band/)

Steve Fister - Shadow King

Bitrate: 192K/s
Year: 1996

Size: 60,3 MB
Label: FTP Records (For The Professional)

 8. Meet You Halfway - 4:09
 9. Blue Planet - 1:26
10. Shelter From The Storm - 3:17
11. Paint It Black - 4:50

Long-time sideman Steve Fister (Lita Ford, Pat Travers, Steppenwolf) stepped out on his own with this 1996 solo release. For Shadow King, he enlisted noted players Greg Bissonette on drums and Stu Hamm on bass which results in an album that is not short on musicianship. Derek St. Holmes adds vocals to three cuts, but the rest of the album consists of instrumentals. Self-produced, Fister reveals himself to be a multi-dimensional and thoroughly versatile guitarist. He can fire off a machine-gun spray of notes with the best of them, but he also understands subtlety and economy, which is incorporated into his playing with engaging, results. "Big Guitars & Fast Guitars" is high-octane and built around an infectious summer groove. "Steam Shuffle" is propulsive and kinetic with some thunderous drumming from Bissonette and "Hyperboogie" is a musical cousin to Van Halen's "Hot For Teacher" which lives up to its name. The versatility of Fister really shines through on the languid blues of "Slow Slide Down" and the hauntingly moody title track to which former Double Trouble member Reese Wynans adds organ. Shadow King is the rare guitarist album that can engross the average music fan with its strong sense of melody and obvious respect for the blues.

Eventually Scotty's father had acquired a few electric guitars that he let Scotty play as long as he was careful with them.
When he was eleven, Scotty was going to open mike nights at clubs in the greater Cincinnati area. This was where he began getting on-stage experience and eventually found band members to support him.
Over the next several years, Scotty sat in with various bands and had the opportunity to open for hero Lonnie Mack.
In 2000, he entered the National Jam with Kenny Wayne Shepherd Contest. In this contest, contestants were to download via computer, KWS’s new single of which the lead solo was to be made up by the competitors. Out of 1,200 entries, Scotty received 1st runner up.

Scotty is also an accomplished studio musician who has recorded with many blues, rock, country, gospel, funk and even heavy metal artists.
In addition to his own band, since 2007, Scotty has also joined forces with Noah Hunt, lead singer for the Kenny Wayne Shepherd band, as the guitar player and 2nd vocalist of the group The 420 All Stars featuring Noah Hunt.
Additionally, in 2013, Scotty’s song, Back Home To You, has been used as the theme song for the Showtime Special, “Billy Gardell Presents Road Dogs”.

Scotty Bratcher, born October 31, 1987, began playing guitar at an age that it became second nature to him, he was 2. By this time, Stevie Ray Vaughan was impressing the world, and when the 1989 release of Austin City Limits was aired, you can imagine where Scotty was-in front of the television.  Scotty's father had acquired, over time, a few electric guitars that he introduced to the toddler. At age 11, the family, grandmother and all, began going to open mic nights at clubs in the greater Cincinnati area to expose Scotty to the live music scene. This was where he began getting on-stage experience and eventually found band members to support him.  In the next several years, Scotty sat in with various bands, one of which posed the opportunity to open for guitar hero Lonnie Mack.

As of 2007 and since, Scotty also joined forces with Noah Hunt, lead singer for the Kenny Wayne Shepherd band, as the guitar player and 2nd vocalist of the group The 420 Allstars featuring Noah Hunt. In 2013, the album "All and Nothing More" was released featuring many new original songs, and a few covers featuring legendary Southern rocker Jimmy Hall. After the release, Mr. Hall contacted Scotty about starting a side project together, adding yet another schedule full of opportunities to see Scotty perform around the country, and sometimes out of it!

The LITTLE ELMORE REED BLUES BAND is a group of some of the best, most dedicated and experienced blues musicians in Austin. We played every Monday for 7+ years at the wonderfully funky east Austin juke joint TC's Lounge. Since the sale of TCs we've moved to The Legendary White Swan club, still in east Austin at 1906 E. 12th Street at Chicon.
Far from being another run-of-the-mill blooze jam band, LITTLE ELMORE REED has a unique sound all it's own. It's based on and deeply rooted in classic Chicago blues while embracing west coast swing and the early rock and blues of New Orleans, all played the way only Texas guys can. The musicians have other gigs that pay the bills and they gather every Monday to play purely for the love of the music and the interaction with a crowd that loves the blues in a funky, sweaty, powerfully soulful environment.

Blues Van e l’album di esordio della Still a Fool Band, ensemble nato sulle rive della Martesana che, in meno di due anni, ha costruito il proprio sound eseguendo dal vivo i classici del genere, da BB King a Freddie King, passando per Big Mama Thornton, Albert King e Magic Sam. Con le sue nove tracce l’album si configura quindi sia come un omaggio al Blues e ai suoi grandi interpreti, sia come testimonianza del lavoro di ricerca di un nuovo e personale linguaggio da parte della band, fatto di blues, nonche di contaminazioni jazz, soul e rock.
Cosi Jeff racconta la leggenda della scomparsa di Jeff Buckley, con un intro dalle atmosfere delta blues e un finale rock blues La ballad Change, invece, con il suo riff ipnotico di chitarra e basso ci trasporta in un viaggio psichedelico, tra malinconia e speranza. La registrazione quasi completamente in presa diretta, unita alla purezza del suono in fase di mixaggio riesce, a rendere perfettamente l’interplay di musicisti che amano l’improvvisazione e arrangiamenti essenziali e diretti. L’album, in uscita il 25 ottobre 2019, sara disponibile sul sito della UltraSound Records e sulle principali piattaforme digitali.

Blues based electric and acoustic music with jazz and rock influences. Expert harmonica playing and accompaniment by stellar sidemen. Strong vocal performances as well as instrumental tunes. LOOKING BACK is a retrospective compilation from Milwaukee based blues musician Steve Cohen. The performances were taken from 5 different projects dating back to 1985. All 13 songs were written by Steve Cohen.  Among the musical luminaries that are present on this recording are Junior Brantley (Stevie Ray Vaughan, Roomful of Blues, Fabulous Thunderbirds), Greg Koch (Fender clinician, Koch-Marshall trio), Jim Liban (Short Stuff), and Peter Roller (Yank Rachell). Bassists Dave Kasik (Bryan Lee) and Kurt Koenig, drummers Vodie Rhinehart and Bob Mueller, and conga player John Ricco are also present, as well as a cameo from Milwaukee gospel quartet The Masonic Wonders.Several songs are from recordings by the perennial Milwaukee blues band Leroy Airmaster, in which singer/guitarist Bill Stone is prominently featured.
Steve Cohen does all of the front line singing, most of the harmonica playing, and also plays guitar on several songs. Steve Cohen has been an important part of the Milwaukee area blues scene for 5 decades. He has been a part of numerous ensembles, playing prolifically since he started performing while still in high school, in 1969. He has released 9 projects of his own and played as a sideman on dozens more. He is the author of 5 harmonica instruction books published by Hal Leonard, and has played the harmonica parts for over a dozen other Hal Leonard harmonica play-along instruction books including Little Walter, Bob Dylan and most recently Muddy Waters. As an educator, he taught blues history at UW Milwaukee for 5 years, and was associated with the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music for 3 years. He has had many private students. He has worked as a booking agent under the auspices of the Blues Central Booking Agency which he created in the 1980’s, and has booked thousands of dates for hundreds of non-commercial bands and musicians, both local and national. He has also worked as a DJ at WMSE, and has written music reviews for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal and the Shepard Express. Both as a harmonica player and with his band, Steve has won a dozen WAMI (Wisconsin Area Music Industry) Awards, and he served on the WAMI board of directors for two different 3 year stretches.

Los Angeles Based Psyche-delta Blues Rockers the Imperial Crowns Continue their Unique Take on the Blues with the Release of their album "Star of the West'.
The Imperial Crowns are four hard working souls who have put their hearts and minds together to create music that is traditional yet contemporary. Each with an extensive background in the rough and tumble L.A. music scene, they play a frantic blend of garage rock, blues, and vintage rhythm and blues. The Imperial Crowns is as fresh as they can be, yet they strive for the future of the good old-time blues music. As they mention welcoming the visitors in their site:
"Upon witnessing THE IMPERIAL CROWNS you shall be left with an impression which will stay with you for a good long time. These days, there are those who feel that the Blues and it's people should be kept "pure" locked up in a museum, left lifeless or living in the past. Well, The Imperial Crowns say no to that, preachin' the blues everywhere they go!"

10. Dodgin Bullets - 5:09

"Dodgin’ Bullets" is Steve’s fifth release and without doubt one of blues’ finest of this year. The rawness and energetic playing again is high class, and Steve is only growing in his vocal abilities. Count to that the level of enthusiasm and the magnificent feeling this man has for song writing, and you have a package worth dying for.
Now, lest we not forget the amazing line up Steve has gathered to join him on this recording either! Illustrious names from the rock and blues scene join the man to lay down his magic. Tony Franklin, Stuart Hamm and Barend Courbois on bass, while Tommy Aldridge, Frankie Banali and Greg Bissonette laying down a groove solid enough to build empires on. Especially Aldridge is hammering away like in his Travers-days with his powerful and never ending explosiveness.
With the opening "She ain’t lonesome" the CD starts out just smooth…. Leading us into the magnificent cover version of B.B. ‘s "Love comes to town". Now I had to frown reading the tracklist cuz, wasn’t this song already covered a million of times? Amongst all those versions, only U2’s inspired collaboration with The King himself stood out! Now my friends, we can add one more to that list: Steve Fister! Not only does he revive the moody classic with a shot of rock, he managed to re-arranged it to a new level; Inspired and exceptionally expressive!
But the real hammer is the 7 minute long heart felt blues ballad "Master plan". A true hymn-to-be for his future live shows. Lingering on for some soulful minutes to let his guitar pour out the most impressive emotional solo this year. From that moment on, you are hooked on this disc for sure!
Following tracks are swinging and rocking. Revving it up with the bluesy melodic rocker "Won’t fall down", the catchy sing along song "Better days" or the odd twist of "Tell me something good" which is circulating around Steve with his talk box and some typical Stu slaps and wraps! Funky, bluesy and soulful at the same time.
The swinging rocker "Zig Zag talk" and a shuffling "I call your name" (reminding me of the Beatles’ "Used to love her"), or the swampy "In a past life" , Steve offers us real time blues in all it’s colours. The sophisticated title track, a slide work out (says Steve), rocks like a Swiss clock and is packed again with energy and enthusiasm: Just the ingredients so many tend to miss nowadays!
But hey! Who am I to talk you into buying this CD? Not being a typical blues fan, I had my second guesses…. Steve Fister however is one of those multi talented players in the ring that offers high quality bluesy rock music in a solid package. Rocking, funky, soulful and with rawness and energy like old school rock and blues used to sound. The music never goes over the top, isn’t polished to death by a producers team, and above all: it has soul, and a heart pumping around the blood of this music with passion and power. Steve Fister is not firing blanks or dodgin’ on this record at all…. He fires with the steady hand of a sniper!

King, Earth Wind & Fire, Aretha Franklin, The Indigo Girls, The Spice Girls, Days Of The New, Warren Haynes, Curtis Mayfield, Aaliyah, Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder. He spent six years as musical director for soul music legends "The Impressions."

Shake, whose real name is Sammy Louis Anderson, learned the most about life when an illness stopped him in his tracks. He was told he would never perform again and had only several months to live. Life as he had known it was over. While spending more than nine months in the hospital and being told he was dying, he learned who he really was. Not Shake as the world called him, but Sammy Louis as his doctor's referred to him. This crisis in his life taught him what was truly important.
Shake overcame all the odds and rebuilt his life. These songs — chapters — are stories about making mistakes, learning lessons and rebirth.
As Shake says, “Once you've been to the edge, the middle don't matter.”

Jon Butcher - Wishes

Bitrate: 320K/s
Year: 1987
Time: 44:12
Size: 101,6 MB
Label: Capitol
Styles: Rock/Blues Rock
Art: Front

Tracks Listing:
 1. Goodbye Saving Grace - 4:14
 2. Living For Tomorrow - 5:09
 3. Holy War - 4:10
 4. Wishes - 4:00
 5. Churinga (Instrumental) - 3:45
 6. Long Way Home - 4:04
 7. Show Me Some Emotion - 4:01
 8. A Little Bit Of Magic - 4:06
 9. Angel Dressed In Blue - 3:55
10. Partners In Crime - 3:21
11. Prisoners Of The Silver Chain - 3:22

Jon Butcher says he never should have bet his heart if he "couldn't pay the price" in Wishes, which might be the guitarist's most introspective album and most potent artistic statement. The production by Butcher and Spencer Proffer is crisp and elegant. Here's a songwriter controlling his own destiny with help from Foreigner/Aerosmith sideman Thom Gimbel, longtime drummer Derek Blevins, and bassist Rob Jeffries. These are all Jon Butcher originals with one co-write, "A Little Bit of Magic," which has the assistance of a person with one name only, Raun, from another Pasha/Spencer Proffer group, Isle of Man. "Living for Tomorrow" continues the spirit of the first tune, "Goodbye Saving Grace," with the singer's strong voice augmented by guitarmanship finally coming into its own. His musicianship takes a backseat to the song and production though, which is a good thing -- leave the flash for the stage. Wishes has solid statements in each song and throughout the grooves. The old adage "If wishes were horses, then beggars would ride" is changed here to "If wishes were horses...then dreamers would ride," written over and under a solitary picture of Butcher on the inner sleeve. He sounds like Paul Rodgers on "Holy War" taking much from the Firm, a group who hit two years before this 1987 disc. "Holy War" takes on Jimmy Swaggart, Jerry Fallwell, Billy Graham, and other evangelists to great effect, while the title track treads on ground more familiar to Butcher, the music of Jimi Hendrix. "Wishes" is a wonderful tune which borrows heavily from "The Wind Cries Mary" both lyrically and musically before emerging halfway through as its own entity. "Churinga" closes out side one, a creative instrumental displaying this band's ability to groove. These grooves immediately make their way to side two with "Long Way Home," a blending of percussion and Jon Butcher's gritty guitar. "Show Me Some Emotion" harkens back to the sound of early Jon Butcher Axis, with better production than their Polygram debut. The co-write, "A Little Bit of Magic," picks up where "Wishes" left off, and though the lyrics may be the weakest on the disc, the song's climbing guitar evokes Santana from that guitar star's "She's Not There" period ten years earlier. "A Little Bit of Magic" should have been a big hit. So too "Angel Dressed in Blue," elements of commercial artists from the day blend into the mix, making this a stronger album from Spencer Proffer than his Quiet Riot smash three years earlier. Rather than "bang your head," the music here is articulate and determined. "Partners in Crime" and "Prisoners of the Chain" add to this dynamic effort, the final track a hard ballad which would have been a nice direction for Bad Company. It sounds like that band seeking more modern sounds and closes out an impressive work by a journeyman revising the formula which brought him regional success in the Boston area.
