CD Reviews

A wonderful intro to Johnny Copeland
(4 out of 5 stars)

"With his gravely voice, and hard driving bass, this was a wonderful intro to Copeland's Texas blues. Highlights include Cut Off My Right Arm, with a fluid guitar solo rarely heard these days, the upbeat What Goes Around Comes Around, and some gut wrenching blues singing. I love Albert Collins, and the fact that he had Copeland play with him on an album made me curious. I was not disappointed."
Texas Blues

(4 out of 5 stars)

"There ain't nothing like Texas blues. The song goes that if you want to play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band. That's not true. If you want to play in Texas, you have to play music that people can dance to. Cowboys, oil workers, Latinos or black folks, people in Texas like to dance and they expect performers to play good music that they can dance to.

Louisiana born grammy winner Johnny Clyde Copeland learned this while growing up in Houston, and like many other Texas bluesmen (Mr. Collins, T-Bone, SRV) his music has this influence. In the old videos of his performances people in the crowd can be seen tapping their toes, swaying to the music, clapping hands or outright dancing.

And like so many blues guitarists, he got better and better as he grew older and matured. This CD is a pretty good representation of Copeland's later work, when he was at his best. There is a lot of foot tapping music and plenty of good guitar work and solos from the talented guitar player Copeland. "Further on Up the Road" and "Look on Yonder Wall" are excellent cuts.

Good CD
