JOE LOUIS WALKER - The Best Of The Stony Plain Years

Kategorie: CD-Reviews | Genre: Blues/Bluesrock | Heft: Jahrgang 2014, eclipsed Nr. 165 / 11-2014 | VÖ-Jahr: 2014 | Wertung: 7/10 | Label: Stony Plain | Autor: AT

The songs compiled here by guitarist and singer Joe Louis Walker, who has been active since the seventies, come from three Stony Plain albums and present a man who can prove himself as a singer, but especially as a guitarist, because he can score like a B. B. King makes the tones sing beautifully. Besides tracks with colleagues ("Ain't That Cold" - Johnny Winter can convince after some initial difficulties), there are "dance-legged" suffle ("I'm Tide"), slow blues ("Sugar Mama") and also an acoustic song in the Americana segment ("Witness"), which he presents in a modern, but not "blues-rock club-like" way. A discovery.
