This is Jake Lee's second cd,featureing his original red-hot slide guitar and vocals on 12 original tracks!He also decided to include a few of his well known original classics,like "Angel on My Shoulder" and "Sign on the Dotted Line",becouse so many of his friends had requested it.This is "swampy",laid-back grooveing,2 oclock in the morning ,raw ,Texas blues at it's best! Enjoy!
Review for "Sign on the Dotted Line" by Guy Michetti
Oh Lord!Man am I lovin' this.You truly are the King of Slide.The guitar sounds perfect!!!Your singin'is dead on in the soul of this song.
The slide work is really great.But you did more than just play this,you lived and loved it with your whole soul.Damn!!
What a feel for phraseing!!!
You can say more in a few passionately played notes in the penatonic scale than most can do if ya gave them every other note in the scale.
This creates such a mood.I am in the Delta.I am there with you.Feeling every note you play!!!
Then you start to sing and I can't hear everything you say,but I know what you are trying to communicate.
God love ya!You showed your soul on this one.
If any hell hound is after you they are going to stop in their tracks when they hear you play!!
I bow to the King of Slide and I'll sign my soul away on the dotted line to hear you play anytime!
Lord love you,bless you and keep you!
Review for "Walls of Illusion" by Maria Daines
My kind of Bluesman....
Im finding this song so good for so many different reasons.
Your voice is scarred with melancholy,a deep passion for what you are singing to us.
This is not usual style blues,it's almost a waltz through all the good bits of whats grand about
the blues,though I hear some pschedelia in there too & some traditional in the melody you convey
Love the live drums,love the sound of that guitar takeing us along for the ride,your storytelling honest voice
is what has captured me the most & I can safely say I will be spending a lot of time here on the strength
of this song alone.I am looking forward to acquainting myself wiyh your work from here on in.
Yes I am a fan.Thank you. http://mixposure.com/maria-daines
