11. I Should've Waited - 4:29
12. Woodsman - 3:46

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

 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.

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!

Willie and the Poor Boys is the eponymous debut studio album of British blues rock band Willie and the Poor Boys. The album was recorded within two weeks in November 1984, and one week in early January 1985 at the Sol, Cookham, Berkshire, and released on Decca Records on 25 April 1985 in the United Kingdom, and Passport Records on 22 April 1985, in the United States.
In September 1984, Bill Wyman conceived an idea to record a charity album, and by November had assembled a group of well-known musicians to record an album to help the Ronnie Lane Appeal for ARMS. The original working title for the album was Up in Arms, a play on the ARMS theme. The album was eventually named after the band Willie and the Poor Boys and the line up on the album featured Bill Wyman (bass), Charlie Watts (drums), Kenney Jones (drums), Jimmy Page (guitar), Paul Rodgers (vocals), Chris Rea (vocals), Andy Fairweather-Low (guitar), Geraint Watkins (keyboards), Mickey Gee (guitar), and Henry Spinetti (drums). The songs on this album encompassed vintage American blues, R & B, swing, and rock and roll material. In addition to the recording, a number of outtakes from the album in John Lee Hooker's 'I'm Mad' and Willie Dixon's 'Down in the Bottom' are known to exist, and were played during a Bill Wyman interview on American radio station KBFH in May 1984, but neither of these recordings have surface yet on any album.  During the recording of this album Wyman and Watts also contributed to the Howlin' Wolf album All Night Boogie at Olympic Studios, and Page and Rodgers were recording their first album and in rehearsals for their tour as the Firm.
Willie and the Poor Boys was released on vinyl LP, cassette, and standard single CD. The CD was reissued on Ripple Records in 1994.

Bob Gardner-vocals, guitar;
Gerard Dominick -bass;
Doug Barber-keyboards;
Jimmy Kormanik-harmonica;
Mark Smallwood-drums.

2nd album from Akron, Ohio based band, The Juke Hounds, featuring 10 original tracks of defiant, blues and blues rock. Rhys Williams of "Blues Blast" magazine writes, " The attitude in both the lyrics and the aggressive attack of the musicians reflects the grit and power that is found throughout Bluesitude," and " it packs a powerful punch."
Blues with a 'tude, like BB King or Howlin' Wolf putting his foot down, and saying, "enough!"
The Juke Hounds share an attitude-- a Midwestern grit that makes them relate to the blues and to each other. When the Jukes play, you’ll hear echoes of BB King and James Cotton along with a defiance and swagger that says "you can't keep me down." The music, the lyrics and the bands’ aggressive stage presence announce they are a force to be reckoned with.
Says Rhys Williams of Blues Blast Magazine: "Kicking off with “I Drive”, which features a riff reminiscent of an updated, angular, more frazzled “Smokestack Lightnin’”, Gardner sings with real venom: “Backseat drivers give me lip, I ain’t going to take their shit, because it’s my life, my way, I drive.” The attitude in both the lyrics and the aggressive attack of the musicians reflects the grit and power that is found throughout Bluesitude. But this is also a band that understands light and shade. When Kormanik steps up for his harmonica solo in “I Drive”, the band slips into a gentler, funky, backing rhythm before Kormanik, Barber and Dominick drop out entirely, leaving Smallwood’s drums and Gardner’s solo guitar. Gardner pulls out a powerfully melodic solo while the musicians re-enter gradually to help build the tension and momentum of an impressive song. “
And Mladen Loncar of the Soundguardian.com writes: “Deeply immersed in a dynamic, effective and inervirajuci electric blues, these experienced musicians without doubt manage to effectively connect and present their original material and traditional blues repertoire. “

Their debut album "Taint Blues" for the Taxim label also features contributions from Nashville singer, songwriter, producer Fred James and Appalachian singer, songwriter Bleu Jackson. Like Little Feat, Credence Clearwater Revival, The Fabulous Thunderbirds and The Flying Burrito Brothers before them, The Taints mix up all of the American Roots Music styles (Rock, Country, Blues, Soul and Rockabilly) to come up with their own unique blend. The new rhythm section, comprised of Lenny Campanaro on drums and "Fingers" Farrell on bass, brings a new dimension to the group. These guys have all been around the block a time or two. The members of The Taints have previously worked with artists as diverse as The Amazing Rhythm Aces, Badfinger, Cold Blood, Dr. Hook, Ken Saydak, The Sam Lay Blues Band, Homesick James, Tommy Tutone, Iron Butterfly, Billy Joe Shaver and The Jelly Roll Kings, to name but a few.
The Taints are a fresh new band with roots that dig deep into traditional Americana. There is something for all ages and lovers of all kinds of Roots Music. This is a band that can play a juke joint one night, a Country Music club the next, a listening room following that and finish off the week at a Rock festival. The band is presently hard at work on their second album and is taking tour dates for 2009-2010.

Phil "Mezcal" Marseille - All Guitars, Dobro, Harmonica and Vocals;
Jean-Etienne "Jet" Loose - Spanish Guitar on "Eldorado";
Michel "Mitch"Sanchez - Bass;
Yvan Ackermann - All Drums.

This project has been launched a few month ago by a guitar player, passionated by Blues and Southern Rock named Philippe Marseille AKA Phil Mezcal, a French guy from the south (yank !) of France, he used to go really often to the United States and particularly in the Deep south...
He's really habited by the music, the culture and the spirit of those regions and he decided as many amateurs to create his own music by his own way in a home-studio...
Phil decided, without great conviction, to put his music on-line, but things went really fast from this time with the help of a collaborative site which allows the artists to collect funds from the users to finance the fees of the recording and the promotion of an album...
This money allowed him to book for recording sessions at studio Tone House in Paris (the one from Joe Dauptain and Jean-Etienne Loose who are really good sound engineers) to prepare the future CD that should be soon available on main platforms like iTunes, Amazon, Fnac.fr, Virgin Megastore…
A sound looking like Blackfoot at their greatest period (with Rickey Medlocke and Jakson Spires) or ZZTop on "Waiting For The Bus/Jesus Just Left Chicago", a REAL DELIGHT !
For me, one of the greatest songs of this album is "Let It Down"...or..."Cajun river"...
The artwork of this CD will also be created by a pro, Stephane Martinez !
The CD had been mastered at UNIVERSAL Studios in Paris.
To perform the recording sessions, he needed a band, because it shouldn't have been possible, would have been too expensive and too long to do all this alone, that's why he hired a Blues/Rock drummer and also a bassist, but once all the titles had been published on Reverbnation the reached a really immense success and a lot of US musicians applied with him to be part of the band...
A lot of concerts opportunities in the US and Europe are also on their way...
The official releasing of the CD is planned for November 2011 and the promotional tour will occur in 2012 when the band will have been officially structured and when the will have had the time for the rehearsals to ensure the shows will be at least at an equal level as the CD and even better !
Rebel Spirit and an incredible musical quality are anyway the signature of Mezcaleros, and I suggest you to connect to Reverbnation to listen to all the tracks of this forthcoming album, and also to share this article with whoever are interested by this kind of music
We are awaiting firmly the release date of this CD, this is a certitude !
