Real Australian Blues Volume 4

I didn't know what to think about this c.d. until after the first few listens. About many of the artists, I kept thinking to myself, Who are these people, Where did they come from. Why haven't I heard of them? The amazing thing for me about this release, is the diversity of Blues styles, along with the high quality of the songwriting, vocals and music. I was so unaware of this wealth of diverse talent within Australias' Blues Music scene. Have I been under a rock for that long?

I'd been labouring over each track from this C.D., and kept coming up with quotes such as Great, Fabulous, Classic, As Good As It Gets, Driving, Laidback, Wailing, Groove, which was starting to sound overly patronizing and repetitious. From my point of view, credit is due for what I consider one of the best blues albums I've ever heard. I would not, in the least little bit be surprised, if this release draws a large amount of attention to the Oz Blues scene.

Seasoned, and acclaimed musos are rife throughout this C.D., and many of them have been associated with  Legends, that reads like a Who's Who, including, Jimmy Page, Buddy Guy, Jeff Beck, Jeff Healey, Jimmy Barnes, BB King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Junior Wells, Santana, Muddy Waters, Canned Heat, John Mayall, Dutch Tilders, Chain, Steve Miller, Johnny Cash, Fleetwood Mac, Albert King, and Status Quo.

Participants in order of appearance, include, Wild Turkey, Bo Jenkins, Paramount Trio, Al Smith, Redliners, The Tailgaters, Jan Cooper, Kevin Borich, Steve Tallis, Snake Oil, Peter Gelling, Blind Freddy, Snake Hips, Wards Express, Blues Before Sunrise, Jennie Marie Lang, Collard  Greens and Gravy, Oozin Blues, Larry Cook and the Bluesmasters, and Blind Henry.

Let me be the first to congratulate each and everyone involved with this release, as you've all done a mighty job. Magic is alive and well, within the Oz Blues scene!
