ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is my third CD, recorded live at the legendary Blues Alley nightclub in D.C. It has 14 songs; half of which are penned by me. Featured on the album is special guest Tommy Lepson on organ/vocals, plus Sam Goodall on bass, ElTorro Gamble on drums, and myself on guitar/vocals. Andy Roberts captured our live sound and Tommy mixed the album. Grammy winner Charlie Pilzer (Airshow) mastered the recording.--Melanie

CD Baby


Ever notice how so many of those blues guitarists are dudes? So what's the deal if you're a chick with them blues, baby? Melanie Mason is the deal, that's what. So pay attention. With a long track record at CD Baby as one of the consistent hard-hitters, this acclaimed artist delivers yet another notable blues album, like the title tells ya, "Live at Blues Alley." With old favorites like, "When Love Comes to Town" she's got every bit of spunk and growl these songs demand.

Michael Macey-Chesapeake Music Guide

Ken Masten

A great live CD
This is the second Melanie Mason CD in my collection. It is a fun combination of new tunes and Blues standards. I love a good live CD especially when it's by someone I probably won't really get to hear live. This CD fits the bill.

Blues Bunny

“Crave” is late night blues at its best.
In “Crave” this live set starts with a truly excellent track – a wonderfully sensuous, tingly blues number. Unfortunately everything else seems to suffer in comparison with the outstanding opener, although “Gospel by the River” and “Love’s Slow Burn” come closest to matching up.

Melanie singing and playing is likened to a warm summer rain.
I selected this CD from a snippet of Crave. I was not disappointed. Melanie's voice first grabbed my attention, then her guitar chops made me sit down and listen to the entire album without getting up. I collect artist rendition's of "Thrill is Gone" and her's is a keeper. Tommy's musical and production work on this album is noted. A nice tight band.

Tommy Lepson
This cd should be titled: Tommy Lepson-- Live at Blues Alley. Tommy is the driving force and fantastic B3 player that is the star here (on this gig cd). His talent alone creates and holds the listener, no matter what project he works on. Plus, he magically mixed this cd! Bravo Tommy! Keep them ivories and your hot hunky R&B vocals of yours busy!

Phil

Steve Smith

superb collection of originals and covers performed flawlessly
Melanie's originals more than hold their own along with an equal number of classic blues covers. Melanie's innovative and extended guitar solos on Crossroads and many others make this album a must have!
