Have no idea how this CD got its title -- not a 12 bar blues tune on the recording. You die-hard Weiland fans, though (and I don't count myself among them), are sure to love it.

I've been looking for years

"I had given up on finding a new copy of 12 Bar Blues after my original was lost. I had looked in the stores, and even on some online stores. But I never, for some reason, looked here. Anyway, my desperate search ended with a downtrodden consumer wondering where she's get her rhythmic Scott Weiland and that sultry, soft voice.
12 Bar Blues doesn't surpass anything STP did. It didn't do better or accomplish something Scott tried to do with the band and failed. There's no comparing it to the band this man once fronted for. Its something completely different and unique of not only Stone Temple Pilots, but anything that was released in its time. Even now I can't think of anything similar. Its an amazing piece and I'm glad I found it again."
What a difference 7 years make!

"I tried in vain to like this cd over seven years ago because the song,"Lady, Your Roof Brings Me Down" was my favorite on the Great Expectations soundtrack. Back then the music sounded so discordant and the lyrics so weird and melodramatic that it got tossed into the junk heap.
On the verge of donating the cd to Goodwill, I gave it a it second chance and after seven more years of music exposure, I can really appreciate the the uniqueness of the compositions and the urgency and flow to these songs. This is the type of music people make when they don't have to worry about having the "Rock Star Image", it's improvisational and experimental sounding. These are much more intimate and higher quality songs than his more one dimensional hits with STP. If I can do a 360 with this, you might want to give it a second try as well."
