    CD REVIEW




    Keeping The Blues Alive
    Various Artists
    Mary4Music Presents:
    "Keeping The Blues Alive"
    Volume Nine

    By Peter "Blewzzman" Lauro, September 2015


    Mary4Music Presents: Keeping The Blues Alive - Volume Nine
    Produced By: Peter Lauro - Blewzzman@aol.com & Mary Roby - Mary@Mary4Music.com
    This Promotional CD is being mailed to radio stations in hopes of gaining some airplay for these talented, indie blues artists. Please ask your listeners to visit the band's websites to learn more about them and possibly purchase a CD. Additionally, if you like what you hear, please feel free to contact the bands for a copy of their CD for airplay on your show. Or, if you prefer, just send me your contact information and I'll be happy to pass it along to the bands for you (Blewzzman@aol.com).

    1) Crossroads Of My Life - Johnny Riley - 4:37
    (Johnny L. Riley - Johnny L. Riley Pub) www.johnnyrileymusic.com
    I don't know what - if anything - Johnny Riley may have done for a living besides being a musician. With a voice like this, Johnny Riley was born to sing the blues. In addition to the lyrics on this masterpiece telling a compelling story, they are sung with absolute conviction.

    2) I'll Be Missin' You - Bridget Kelly Band - 4:38
    (Tim Fik & Bridget Kelly - Alpha Sun Pub) www.bridgetkellyband.com
    The husband and wife team of vocalist Bridget Kelly and guitarist Tim Fik are fast becoming a force to be reckoned with in the blues community. Bridget's powerful, and often sultry singing style, along with Tim's guitar wizardry, make them a perfect musical match.

    3) Too Slick - Memphis Gold - 4:40
    (Chester Chandler aka Memphis Gold - Bailria Pub) www.memphisgoldblues.com
    When blues fans talk about their all-time favorite artists, Memphis Gold is a name that belongs in that conversation. Nothing he does is anything less than 100% real deal blues. After giving this one a listen you'll know just what I'm talking about.

    4) Shake Me Shake Me - Hector Anchondo Band - 3:52
    (Hector Anchondo - ASCAP Pub) www.hectoranchondo.com
    So Elvis was all shook up and Hector's wanting to be shaken…..the similarities do not end there. This one's got a retro sound that will remind you of some of the classic, early rock and roll songs that were influenced by the blues.

    5) No Worries - Hurricane Ruth - 4:00
    (LaMaster/Lumsden/Davis/Engel) www.hurricaneruth.com
    This particular track is from earlier in Ruth's career and it is stuff like this that helped upgrade her from Tropical Storm Ruth into Hurricane Ruth - an all-out category 5 power house. Pipes like this are what people are hearing when they refer to someone "belting out the blues".

    6) Take Me Back To The Delta - Billy Pierce & Friends - 5:00
    (Billy Pierce - Taylor Surtees Pub) www.billypierce.com
    Listening to Billy Pierce alone is a pleasure itself, but throwing in the "And Friends" takes it a whole other level. Although those friends are quite the list, there are just too many to mention here. With that said, buckle up and get ready for some smokin', slide guitar led Delta Blues.

    7) This Love Looks Good On Me - Laura Cheadle - 4:18
    (Laura & James Cheadle - Bloozy Toonz Music Pub) www.lauracheadle.com
    This is an absolutely beautiful and inspiring song about an obviously perfect relationship. It tells such a happy story that I found myself hoping it was written from a real life experience. From baritone to falsetto - and everywhere in between - Laura vocally nails this one.

    8) I Can't Leave - Benny Turner - 3:17
    (Nola Blue, Inc - Nola Blue Music Pub) www.bennyturner.com
    Keeping right up with everything before it, this is another all-around excellent track. Superb lead and background vocals, outstanding instrumentation with a great dance beat and quite a catchy chorus line that will have you singing along.

    9) Got To Get My Hat - Memphis Gold - 5:15
    (Chester Chandler aka Memphis Gold - Bailria Pub) www.memphisgoldblues.com
    He's back. Not only has Memphis Gold had a song on all of the previous eight discs, but here he is with his second song on this one. Memphis Gold's support of this compilation series is second only to this - his massive musical talent.

    10) Santa All Year - Allen-Lamun Band - 4:04
    (Dave Allen - Mad Left Music Pub) www.allenlamunband.com
    Don't let the use of St. Nick's nick name trick you into thinking this is a Christmas song. Sure, it will certainly make a great seasonal track but nevertheless, this is a song about someone needing the magic of Santa all year long.
