Isaac Scott was an American blues guitarist and singer. In 1979, Scott recorded live his debut album, The Isaac Scott Blues Band. Three years later, he released what turned out be his only studio-based album, Big Time Blues Man, also on Red Lightnin' Records and was strongly linked to Seattle, Washington with its own blues scene, having moved to the city in the early 1970s.

His influences included Albert Collins and Jimi Hendrix. Two of his obituaries noted that Scott might have achieved greater national fame, if he had been able to write his own material. (https://en.wikipedia.org/)

Cold Chisel 1981 Swingshift

Genre: Blues-Rock
Rate: 320 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 01:16:20
Size: 174,60 MB


Review by Adrian Zupp

June through August of 1980 saw Cold Chisel take to the road for its hugely successful "Youth in Asia" tour of Australia. The band was at the peak of its powers and launching from all silos, and it shows on this 17-track, two-disc set, recorded at the Capitol Theatre in Sydney on August 29 and 30. Producer Mark Opitz, who felt this was the best of the Chisel albums he'd worked on, claimed that he didn't put in a single overdub -- a clear indication of how hot the band's chops were.

Cold Chisel was touring in support of its newly released breakthrough album, East, which had burned up the Aussie charts in short order, and seven of that disc's songs are performed here. Highlights from Chisel's first two studio albums are also featured, as well as three covers, including a blazing rendition of the Jerry Lee Lewis standard "Don't Let Go" and Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Long as I Can See the Light."

Seven of the numbers on Swingshift also appear on Cold Chisel's farewell live album, Last Stand, but there's no redundancy in these snapshots from different eras. Highlights are many, but it's hard to go past the band's signature number "Khe Sanh," the dark and frantic "Conversations," the beefed-up rockabilly of "Rising Sun," and the rock & roll meteor "Goodbye (Astrid Goodbye)." Great support work from saxophonist Billy Rodgers and harmonica player Dave Blight add extra spice to several of the songs.

Swingshift was an instant number one, platinum-certified hit in Australia, further enlarging the Cold Chisel aura. As for the album title, the band claimed it was a reference to the midnight-to-dawn shift that staff in mental asylums dread: the hours when the crazies go crazy. Somehow that seems very apt for these wild colonial boys.

Sky High 2002 Freedom

Genre: Blues-Rock
Rate: 192 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 01:09:56
Size: 95,92 MB


Album Notes

Freedom, the 12th album from SKY HIGH, featuring "critically acclaimed" Swedish blues/rock guitar legend Clas Yngstrom, is a heavy guitar revelation which includes 16 killer trax (69 minutes) of outstanding, blistering-hot, intense powerful blues/rock riffage of the highest order.

On Freedom (their first disc for GROOVEYARD RECORDS, a new label dedicated to TOTAL GUITAR), SKY HIGH went into a studio in the backwoods of Sweden earlier this year and laid down the blues/rock law. Going back to their heavy power trio roots and keeping true to the format, Clas Yngstrom & Sky High recorded Freedom "live" in the studio and got down to some serious blues/rock business. This is the way REAL blues/rock music is meant to be played...RAW, LOUD & HARD or, as we like to refer to it @ the grooveyard, "RAW BLUES POWER!!!"

On the Freedom sessions, Clas & Co. dig deep into their best & heaviest material, complete with several kool surprises including a "bad-ass" version of "Freedom" by Hendrix. The end result features some of the most incredible, fierce, over-the-top, awesome beyond all reason HEAVY GUITAR THREE PIECE KICK ASS CYCODELIC BLOOZE ROCK you have ever heard.

Sky High has been together in one form or another kicking blues/rock ass for over two decades (23 years to be exact), played on over 25 t.v. shows, had two top 10 singles and have gigged extensively around the world with over 3000 gigs under their belts including tours of India, Ecuador, Japan, and playing in front of 300,000 people at the "Glasnost '88 Rock Fest." They have also had their music featured in the film "The American Way" starring Dennis Hopper and have even "jammed" with Z.Z. TOP (according to the blues/rock gospel, Billy Gibbons aka Rev. Willy G. preaches that Clas Yngstrom is a guitar GOD!!!)

Although relatively unknown in the States, Clas Yngstrom is well known in certain circles throughout the rest of the world and, for people not familar with Sky High, Freedom is the perfect place to start. For those of you who are familiar with Clas Yngstrom, this is the SKY HIGH album you have been waiting for brother Clas to get down on. On the Freedom disc he takes his guitar rite over the edge and he never looks back. Clas Yngstrom is without a doubt one of the greatest get-down hendrixy heavy guitar axeslingers we have ever heard and he waves his blues/rock heavy guitar freak flag HIGH on Freedom.

The SKY HIGH - Freedom disc is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to fans of JIMI HENDRIX, STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN, ROBIN TROWER, FRANK MARINO, ERIC GALES, GARY MOORE, ERIC CLAPTON with CREAM, classic vintage-era Z.Z. TOP and just about any other killer get-down rippin' blues/rock axemaster you have ever heard. Clas Yngstrom is definitely rite up there with the BEST of them and he deserves all the credit he can get.

As an added bonus, Swedish guitar virtuoso Thomas Larsson guests on "Bluestown" & "I ain't beggin'" where the two Swedish axemasters rip and tear it up on these two killer trax.

Serious blues/rock fans take note: if you dig your blues hard and heavy with an emphasis on the guitar, then Sky High is the band for you and Freedom will hit you where it counts and blow you away completely.

United States

Looking at his long career you’d have to call Walter Rhodes primarily a bluesman, but he did cut three masterpieces in the soul genre which haven’t really received their due attention. In fact his music in general hasn’t been studies properly, partly due to the number of names he recorded under and partly due to the obscure labels he cut for. HA highly talented musician, he was a more than competent guitarist and blues harp player but his crowning glory was his voice.

He was never a flashy singer, but there were few who put so much of themselves into a lyric, and fewer still who made such emotionally compelling performances. My friend Dickie Tapp, who saw him live in 1989, says "I will never forget Walter Rhodes' appearance at the Blues Estafette in 1989. It was one of the most emotional performances I have ever witnessed and the 'pain' in his singing had me close to tears. Walter was backed by a small ad-hoc combo which included Teddy Reynolds on piano and Sherman Webster on bass - they all gelled." And that force and intensity was with him whatever musical style he chose. (http://www.sirshambling.com/)

Buddy Guy 1998 Buddy's Blues - The Best Of The JSP Sessions 1979-82

Genre: Blues
Rate: 128 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 01:01:14

Buddy Guy today remains one of the true international superstars of the Blues. One of his musically most glorious periods was the three classic albums he cut for JSP Records (D.J. Play My Blues, Breaking Out and Live At The Checkerboard Lounge) and the guesting on brother Phil Guy's wonderful debut album Red Hot Blues.

This compilation features some of the best cuts from that period and those albums. Buddy plays some hot guitar here and is stylistically moving forward from his sixties stuff to the ultra commercial things of today. Buddy always knew that the world would catch up eventually and he would become a superstar - the music here will tell you why. (John Stedman)
