ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Bobby Kyle Band

In today's music scene there are hundreds of talented guitarists vying for the brass ring, and there are many, many great players out there. But there are very few with the heart and soul of Bobby Kyle. Blunt and to the point, Bobby's singular stylings resonate with maturity, talent and inspiration, bringing us a genesis of contemporary music that is characteristically all his own.

Kyle, who now leads his own high-energy quartet at clubs and festivals around the Northeast, spent eight years touring the world with the late guitarist, songwriter and singer Johnny "Clyde" Copeland. Copeland was one of contemporary blues' more gifted songwriters, breaking new lyrical and thematic ground with each new album he recorded through the 1980s and '90s.

Bobby was backing up Bill Dicey by the late seventies, and the pair later became a duo. In the early eighties, Bobby joined the house band at the Stuffed Pepper, a Tampa Bay blues mecca. There he worked with such luminaries as James Peterson, Johnny Shines, Raful Neal, Mary McClain Smith, and Tabby Thomas. In 1984 Handy Award winner Eddie Kirkland invited Bobby to join his band. After six years with Eddie, Bobby joined the band of Grammy Award winner Johnny "Clyde" Copeland. Bobby performed with this legendary Texas bluesman on major-label recordings, and in concerts, festivals, and clubs worldwide until Johnny's death in 1997.

Between touring dates with Eddie Kirkland and Johnny Copeland, Bobby took his solo act on the road, performing his own material at nightclubs and festivals throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe.

Bobby's emotional, soulful voice rings true, and is forged with a raw, distinctive quality all his own. Honest and forthright, Bobby's original songs tell the story of Everyman with a passion born of life, love and loss.

Blues the way it should be...
The spirit and intent of the Blues is demonstrated ably by Bobby Kyle and the Bobby Kyle Blues Band. You'll be shakin' your moneymaker and tappin' your toes. This band does it right!

Rose Valley

Refreshingly real, yet contemporary; unpretentious; tight, discplined
Great to hear this contemporary Blues CD, sincere in the sound, tight and disciplined in arrangements, and professionaly recorded. Kudos for being up to date to the World and incorporating the Spoken Word. Been hearing it on the Web. Best wishes to the Band.

Blues, contemporary
Very refreshing CD, Blues, honest, straightforward. Has the guts to include spoken word of title song. Lovely to listen to breathless bass on "Spider & the Fly"; anguish in Bobby's "Let's Start All over Again" guitar & voice; not to mention Alex Harding's hypnotizing baritone sax!

Blues through and through.
Bobby does a great job on this cd. Keep up the good work.

Laurent

Great songs, no fillers !
Super album only too short. The quality of the songs is so good that 5 songs is not enough. This is top class blues and fans of Mighty Sam McClain should check this album out. Bobby's raspy voice perfectly suits the material and the playing throughout is great. One of the best blues records I own. I need more of that !

oh yeah.
5 great blues tacks. Leaves you wanting more. Best 5 bucks I spent this year.

Last call by Bobby Kyle is truly great...
Once again Bobby comes through strong, gritty...and real.This cd shows that Bobby Kyle is still at the top of his game.

Paul Bondarovski, Midnight Special Blues Radio

Certainly one of the best Blues records of the year.
An excellent example of how free and creative can be a great artist even staying within the space of everlasting tradition. Five all-original contemporary blues tracks which sound like classic. The vocal and instrumental performance is so rich that you'll need to play the CD several times in a row to fully get it. A strong five-star work!
