Bman's Blues Report, Arizona USA, Live Album Review, July 2015

I have listened to this release a number of times and I continue to be surprised by the chord changes and I like it better each time. Koral again steps up with clean and interesting guitar riffs making this one of my favorites.

I just received the newest release, I'll Be Yours Tonight LIVE, from Zoe Schwarz Blue Commotionand it's quite good! Opening with a rocker, Your Sun Shines Rain, Schwarz reminds me a lot of early Yeah Yeah Yeahs but done in San Francisco in 1968. Interesting. Fine & Mellow is a perfect...

Cover mount CD Classic Rock The Blues - Issue 22 June 2015

On This Issue's CD: Hit The Highway! Ah, that new blues small! Crank up this collection of cool tracks from some old friends and fresh faces.

Track 12:  Say It Isn't So - This song's riff will burrow its way into your head like a parasitic worm... but in a good way.  One of our favourite tracks from the band's new "accidental" live album, Say It Isn't So is fuelled by some incendiary vocal, guitar and organ work....
