Blues Weather romps from funk to blues to soul, with hummable tunes and foot tapping beat. The CD is all original material with plenty of vocals. It achieves a combination of chemical/spiritual/musical reactions that happen when all the right ingredients come into play: talent, personality, humour, united vision and a little bit of magic. The band has managed to develop their own special sound, while drawing from some great root sources, such as: James Brown, Muddy Waters, Little Walter and The Meters. Blues Weather is a real crowd pleaser with a selection of kicky tunes aimed at dance lovers.
...remarkably diverse, crisp and clean, full of fun.
(5 out of 5 stars)
"The album won the 1999 Canadian Juno Award for blues bands, joining other category winners including Barenaked Ladies, Shania Twain, Celine Dion, Byran Adams, etc. Fathead beat out the great Colin James in the process which speaks to the quality of the CD.This is a 'happy' bluesy album, one which won't deepen a morose mood. I was left with a sense of uplifting, a feeling of camaraderie, a spiritual refreshment. Being partial to harp, I was delighted by the great work of Al Lerman, who also plays a fine, creative sax. John Mays gives us wonderful vocals, spanning the range from spiritual to funk.Blues Weather is a hidden jewel.-Glen Jones-"
