Its a Mean Old Scene

by John Verity

I suppose you could say I'm a journeyman blues player. I've had a long career and my many musical influences have driven me on. This album contains my take some of this music, by some of the artists who started it all for me... Enjoy - I did!!

Album Notes
I'm a blues player. I'm a white boy from the UK who got the blues very early in life - how could I not get the blues?!
I love this music when it is played with feeling, and I've always tried to surround myself with like-minded musicians who play from the heart to get the the best out of this wonderful material. For this album I chose songs by Robert Johnson, Willie Dixon, Lowell Fulson and more from my favourite writers & artists. I purposely didn't listen to the originals, or even the other cover versions when recording this album. I wanted to recall them from memory just the way I remember them. I'm sure my influences will show as you listen, but I don't mind that. I'm proud of my heritage - this is a tribute album in the best sense. A tribute to my heroes.
I have a rich pool of excellent musicians to draw from - they are my great friends too:
Bob Henrit & Steve Rodford on Drums. Mark Griffiths & Andy Childs on Bass. Jeff Dakin on harmonicas, and Keith Wier on Keyboards.
I believe they will be proud of their contribution too...
I have been lucky enough to perform alongside many of my heroes during my career - check out my website sometime, I'm told it makes interesting reading... I even have a webcam in my studio - check it out!
OK that all from me - I hope you choose to listen to my music. We really did enjoy making this album, and I believe you can hear that when you listen.
Be happy.
JV December 2011.
