CD Reviews

Melvin Taylor is THE MAN!!
Jason Cowey | Austin, Tx USA | 10/09/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Awesome guitar player. Closest person since SRV to really capture the magic. He by far blows away KWS, Jonny Lang, and Mato Nanji from Indigenous. If you ever see him live or if you can find any video of him you will know what I am talking about."
Blues At Its Absolute Best!
Curtis R. Martin | Lubbock, TX USA | 07/20/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Let's start with the downside... none of the songs on this album are original songs. That being said, ALL of the songs are BREATHTAKING. Melvin Taylor plays his guitar stunningly well, and the man knows how put mountains of feeling and soul into it. Not only is his guitar-playing fabulous, but the man knows how to sing the blues, too. If you like the blues, or think you might, or even suspect that you merely don't *dislike* the blues, then buy this album. It may be one of the best musical purchases you ever make, from the funky rendition of "Ain't Superstitious" to the brilliant cover of "Born Under A Bad Sign" this is modern blues as it should be."

"4 stars only because it isn't quite as good as RING THAT BELL. This is a bit more traditional ( as much as traditional is possible for MELVIN ) than RING THAT BELL, I therefore find it a bit less exciting. Where RING THAT BELL is an electric blues CD in the GARY MOORE mold, this is more lay back. It still reaches the same hights, just not as often. I don't think MELVIN TAYLOR could produce anything but outstanding CD's. He is bursting with so much talent as a vocalist and guitarist, that everyone of his CD's is a must have for BLUES fans. He sounds like a mix of the best of BUDDY GUY, a large dose of SRV and a pinch of GARY MOORE.
I am just sad that I will never see him live."
