The English singer and guitarist Danny Bryant is an animal. Live he's hitting the blues strings, it's a bliss. His overflowing improvisations on the distorted Fret-King guitar leave no one cold. His throaty singing reinforces the image of the virtuoso blues painter. So it is no wonder that he now starts with a live offensive and releases this concert recording from autumn 2011 from Rosmalen in the Netherlands on CD and DVD. He was only supported on bass and drums. And yet here you experience the fullness of Bluesrock in a captivating live atmosphere. "Tell Me slams in like Hendrix Highspeed. "Just As I Am" is such an expressive blues ballad that you don't get it served every day for ten full minutes. Love Of Angels" also plays on divine terrain. Only at "One Look" the acoustic is unpacked. Also with a John Hiatt- and a Buddy Guy-Cover the crowd really went along. Bob Dylan's "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" was turned into a slow blues. In the concluding "Always With Me" the guitar first sings quietly into itself and then increases to the bursting finale.
