This is the first cd from Corey Stevens that I have listened to.
The blues guitar on "Blue Drops of Rain" is impressive! Stevens has the voice and style that I appreciate in the blues genre.
For a little-known artist, this offering will reel in the blues fan.
While a lot of blues artists seem to record the obligatory blues album before going into rock, I hope that Mr. Stevens keeps producing more blues albums because he produced some fantastic blues with this one!
While comparisons will inevitably be made between current artists like Corey Stevens and Stevie Ray Vaughan, I don't think it's a fair comparison. SRV was a legend and in my eyes, "one of a kind."
Corey Stevens has his own style of blues and it's more than good!!
One of the best Bluesmen ever!!!!!

"Corey Stevens is one of the most original Bluesmen around right now. He continues to push the envelope on each record. Stevens knows no musical boundaries. Instead of putting out stale old cover songs like most bands these days, the majority of Stevens music is original music he wrote himself. Stevens has more integrity than any of this "new" generation of people trying to play Blues. Corey Stevens has staying power, he's been in the business for many years, and there's a reason for that, because he is a true blue Bluesman, who's music is real. Corey Stevens is keeping the blues BLUE. I stand behind every record he makes because I can recognize true genius, true talent when I hear it. Stevie Ray Vaughan & Corey Stevens are the ONLY white Bluesmen I listen to. I think that says alot that I give them the honor of being in the same category of Bluesmen like Albert King, Buddy Guy, BB King, Freddie King, Robert Johnson, Elmore James, etc. Corey Stevens is every bit as much of a Bluesman as they all are. Stevens lives and breathes the Blues. Don't believe any of the negative reviews you see on here, just buy this record now, and you too will hear this is true! In a 100 years from now Corey Stevens will be remembered as one of the Legends of Blues, he will be talked about in the same sentences mentioning the Kings of the Blues. If you are not yet a fan of Stevens, buy this CD and you will be, and if by chance after that you're somehow not, then my friend you are tone deaf. Corey Stevens is one of the best! Your Blues CD collection is not complete until you have each one of his records in it! This will be one of the best purchases you make!"
