I recieved your CD "Ten Cents Short ofa Dime", a few days ago. It has barely left the limelight. Love it heeps, and so do my listeners on the 'Rhythms & Blues' shows. This CD will be featured on "Cruizin' for a Bluezin", this Saturday @ Heritage fm. I would also like to do a review of "Albert Carey Project" for our Perth Blues Club magazine. Please be tempted to send us some newer or earlier recordings.....They will certainly be played regularly on our programs. I can be sure of that. Thank you for helping to keep Blues Music ALIVE in Australia. Cheers to your success,

**** Singer/songwriter Albert Carey is based in Millbrook, New York. "Ten Cents Short Of A Dime", which was released in 1999, was recorded at Millbrook Sound Studios, Millbrook, New York. The Slimmer Twins (aka Jody Gray & Paul Orofino) produced it. Carey is accompanied by some great musicians in John O'Reilly (drums), Danny Miranda (bass), Tony Perrino (organ) and hot shot guitarists: Johnny Gale, Tommy Burns, Frank Carillo and Al Pitrelli. Except for Traffic's "Empty Pages", all of the songs are originals. The Albert Carey Project delivers white-hot blistering blues-rock with songs like "Catch A Ride", "Big Red Fire Engine", "She's The One" and "Evil, Evil". Even on slower tunes like "Solitary Man" and "Too Blue To Sing The Blues" and "Thinkin' With Your Heart" the sound is great. Albert Carey has a new release in the pipeline. It should be well worth checking out too.

Blustery and blistering blues-rock, well sung by leader Carey and featuring some clean and mean axe work by guitarists Tommy Byrnes, Al Pitrelli and Johnny Gale.

Albert plays what could be defined as solid rock blues based on the sounds and roots of the seventies. But his music is not always hard, he also knows how to play heavy ballads. Personally, he reminds me of some bands that no longer exist, such as Wishbone Ash. Carey shows power, good manners, elegance, taste, good style and communication and many other qualities that you will discover along the forty two minutes of music on this CD.

Thanks for the CD. I enjoyed this quite a bit. He has an attractive raspy voice and his playing is excellent. I liked the mix of acoustic and electric textures too.

I love the lyrics of 'Too Blue to Sing The Blues'. You should get a 'Grammy' for that song (really)!
Hey Bert. Got yer package. Thank you so kindly. The dunny poster is upon my workbench wall. I do reckon the "NO DUMPING" sign really makes it though. You must be a very busy man; self promoting. I played two of the three new songs on the show today. Can hardly wait till yer newy is complete...... I hope you will send it to me. I've played 'Ten cents short', so many times over; Our listners MUST be knowing your songs by now. !!
Thanx for staying in touch.
