(2009 ´High Fidelity´) (37:28/12) Ungewöhnliche australische Band, die loslegt, als wolle sie Mitte der 60er Jahre Buddy Guy Konkurrenz machen. Mit ihrem etwas chaotischen Querschnitt, halb eigenes, halb fremdes Material, liefern sie äußerst abwechslungsreich ein Programm aus Klassikern, perfekt arrangiert mit einem satten Bläsersatz und spieltechnisch exquisit bleibt nur eine Frage: brauch man das / Unique combo from Australia feat. a mighty hornsection. Half originals, half covers, excellent performance. A set of blues diversity, from old-fashioned to modern urban styles. Yet the question remains: do we really need this .
(Mountain Fever Records) 10 tracks - digisleeve - For her new project on Mountain Fever, Cox has once again teamed up with producer and songwriter Jerry Salley. Salley’s reputation as a writer among the elite artists in bluegrass and acoustic country music stands on its own without question, but partnered with Cox, the two have proven to be quite the formidable pair in writing and recording great music. Ricochet is a strong example: seven of the ten tracks were co-written by one or both of them. The title track was released in late 2017 as the album’s first single and has already landed on Bluegrass Today’s Top 10 Songs. The opening track, ´´South To North Carolina”(Cox/Salley/Michael Rogers) will resonate well with die-hard bluegrass fans and proves that Australian-born Cox is equally at home in the U.S., both musically and geographically. If radio programmers are looking for the next great duet for their playlists, they need look no further than ´A Bed This Cold´ sung by Cox and Brandon Rickman of the Lonesome River Band, who also penned the song with Salley. Additional guest vocalists include Salley, Rogers, Maggie Salley, Donna Ulisse, and Josh Swift. Adding to this already solid recording is an all-star cast of musicians; Jason Rofler (fiddle/guitar), Justin Moses (Dobro/mandolin), Aaron McDarris (banjo), and Mike Bub (bass). Ricochet will likely find a rightful spot among listener’s favorites, thereby giving Kristy Cox some well-deserved longevity in bluegrass music.
(Ruby Tone) 13 tracks -The Stargazers are back! Twenty years after their latest LP (Froffee Coffee) and even more than that if you look for an album featuring guitar ace Peter Davenport. And the question is: do they still have it? You bet! Not only they still rock like teenagers but Carry On Jiving could possibly be the band’s best album to date. Nothing less. Around the trio made of Brittain/Davenport/Purkess, the new line-up that consists of Jim Russell on drums, Jamie Rowan on piano, Matt Radford (Ronnie Dawson, Carl sonny Leyland, Little George, Big Joe Louis and many more) who shares the bass duties with Purkess and Aaron Liddard (Amy Winehouse) on sax brought a shot of fresh air to the band and gave it a second youth. Too often one can read that the Stargazers are a good (or « excellent » depending on the review you read) Bill Haley type of band. Partly true, you’ll find plenty of Haley influence here, especially in Davenport’ own that are instantly recognizable ( Boo Hoo Hoo and Love, Love, Love follow a long tradition established by songs like Go Go Honey or Bop A Doo Bop ), it’s too reductive. The Stargazers are first and foremost a great Rock’n’roll band, and it’s never been truer with that album. With each member contributing to the songwriting of the 13 originals it’s a solid mix of influences full of variety, kicking off with the frantic ´ Let’s Go´ (that has written rock’n’roll anthem all over it) with Fats Domino influenced song (Free Tonight), tip of of the hat to Chuck Berry (The Wonderful Thing About Rock’n’roll) and wild instrumental with organ to name but four. As usual the musicianship is top notch, from Liddard on sax who not only brillantly succeeds in following John Wallace’s footsteps but brings his own style to the tight rhythm section and of course Davenport who is one of the very few guitar player who understood that « less is more.

Whether it was a ballad, a gospel hymn, or pure rock´n´roll, when he sang, people listened. However, there was more to Elvis than his music and movies. Throughout his career he was questioned by mobs of adoring fans and interviewed by thousands of inquisitive reporters. Repeatedly he was asked personal questions about his life, ranging from love and marriage to his musical style, from his religious beliefs to his family. He answered them all in a polite and forthright way. Elvis Speaks is a collection of Elvis´s words -- what he said on a variety of topics such as loneliness, performing in front of live audiences, how he felt about his fans, how he felt about being drafted into the army, music, love, and religion. The words are pure Elvis. They come from the heart and reflect the man behind the entertainer and beyond the gates of Graceland, the Cadillacs, the gold records, and the money. Elvis Speaks tells of a man who loved to entertain people and found heartache and happiness in a career that spanned nearly three decades.
