Good Blues Instrumental

"I have enjoyed most of Debbie Davies album projects in the past but would always pick and choose different cuts from them and go on to create a complilation.
However, this time, there is not a cut that I don't like. I miss her vocals but she provides a great choice of excellent blues guitar work and styles for every taste and interest. If blues and guitar are your "bag", you cannot go wrong with this disc.
If you like this album, you might also consider Ronnie Earl for the jazz side of the blues (especially Colour of Love...5 star) or Johnny A for instrumentals on the rock side of the blues. Also, Robben Ford has some very good ones as well (Sahara Moon, The Plunge, Indianola are favorites of mine) All should satisfy you."
Holdin' Court has some great instrumentals, Debbie is on fir

"I purchased this CD in advance of the release date and was very much satisfied with the driving instrumentals. Here's some old-school blues that will stick to your ribs. There are five covers and six originals that really rock out in that familiar blues tone of a long time master. I really enjoy Debbie's guitar on all of these tracks, it's what you yearn for when you see her live. It's back to blues guitar basics on this album and no vocals to distract though after a while you miss that vocal instrument of Davies. My only complaint about this CD is the length of each tune, I'd love to hear an extended version on just about all of these tracks. Add it to your DD collection, you won't be disappointed and go see her live whenever you get the chance."

"I have this on my wish list. Debbie was my first female guitarist that I loved. She lets me know with this album that the flame is still there. Not being a great vocal lover, that is, I'm not into vocals unless they have what I call.."feeling" or great harmony(grew up on to much Byrds, C,S,&N..) and Debbies' strong suit is her guitar. So, this set of tunes is heavan for me. Can't wait for the mailman to get her so I can experience all the songs not just the 'teasers'."
