After three years as the second guitarist and warm-up singer for Albert Collins, Debbie Davies released her first solo album, Picture This. Combining Collins's "ice-pick" guitar style with the warmer folk-blues vocals of a Bonnie Raitt, L.A.'s Davies is good enough at both styles to make her talent obvious but not good enough to sound truly singular. For example, on the title track, which she wrote herself, Davies plays some fast and pointed guitar breaks against the horn riff and belts out a promise of romantic bliss to a potential lover. The guitar solos, however, are a bit too generic to be personal, and the vocals are a bit too tentative to be totally convincing. --Geoffrey Himes

"I canned the other album "Tales from the AustinMotel" as sweet studio plastic muzik. It's difficult to believethis is from the same artist! Real blues feel, much more laid back licks, great vocals. I don't think Eric will feel too threatened in spite of the optimistic rewiewer from "Music Connection" "Davies exhibits guitar playing virtuosity with the likes of Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan" Well they are certainly entitled to think that, but I think Ms Davies real strength is in her voice, good guitar, great voice!"
