I've followed Aynsley for a while and he has hit it out of the park with Equilibrium. A top-shelf rocking guitar player, he shows off his voice and a more refined sound with greater range on this offering. But don't worry, he still comes to rock especially on Time's Up, Big Sleep, and Sugar Low. He also has a cool acoustic cover of Gnarls Barkley's Crazy that works in a bluesy way. Running Out On Me is a great rocking bluesy shuffle. You've got to hear this! (John C.)

01 - Soul 04:08

02 - Time's Up 03:07

Cephas & Wiggins 1999 Homemade (LL)





Genre: Blues

United States

John Cephas understood the blues and it shows in his choice of material here, from standard blues, Trouble in Mind and Worried Life Blues (w/a lively piano) to less familiar choices such as Pigmeat and Illinois Blues. John Cephas sounds as if his somehow channeling the late Brownie McGhee on Pigmeat. (Side note: Though Cephas and Wiggins are often compared to Brownie McGhee and Sonny Terry, they rarely sound like one another on side-by-side listenings of the same tunes. Cephas and Wiggins usually have a softer, if no less true blues sound and Cephas' voice is instantly recognizable. His nod to Brownie McGhee on this Pigmeat is a charming surprise.)

Phil Wiggins' occasionally underrated (why?!) harmonica and vocal harmony talents are highlighted in Illinois Blues and Walkin' Mama. I have more than 6000 blues songs on my computer, but I find myself listening to Illinois Blues over and over. Walkin' Mama is an upbeat number and you can feel these guys enjoyment of this tune; Wiggins' harmony vocals make this a stand-out number They have recorded this song on other CDs, but their harmonies are especially listenable and fun on this version.

The interplay between the two musicians is confident and unhurried and to my mind anyway, perfect on every track here. "Homemade" is a great CD no matter if you're new to the blues or if you're been a blues fan for years. (Linn B)

Skin 1998 Hasta La Vista, Baby!





Genre: Rock
Rate: 320 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 01:28:27
Size: 202,35 MB

United Kingdom

"Krusher Intro" says it all. The British media turned their backs on good quality, exciting rock music years ago, at a time when British rock music was in resurgence. The result of this is that Skin found themselves in a position where they only had one option - to break up.

This album was their parting shot. And what a parting shot. Never really a huge venue band, Skin thrived on the intimacy of small places. The fact that those small venues were always packed to the rafters should have been an indication of their popularity.

But chart success was always going to elude them. Nobody wants to listen to loud rock music on the radio anymore. And we are talking loud!!! This album seems to split between CD 1 which concentrates on the "Experience Electric" album, and CD 2 which showcases the others - sadly no longer available (thanks EMI!!).

There are no standout moments on this album - they are all standout moments. Check out the rendition of "Mah Na Mah Na", a tip of the hat to the Muppets, and an indication that the band never took themselves seriously. Also included is their version of "Unbelievable", a version which literally knocks the socks off the original.

If a highpoint had to be picked, however, it would have to be "Tower Of Strength", "Perfect Day" and "Colour Blind", a slap in the face of those who think that rock musicians cannot write thoughtful lyrics. As a swansong, this was certainly the way to go. But the swansong should never have come. Music like this deserves more coverage both in Europe and America. (a customer)

review by Thom Owens

Michael Hill's primary attribute is his ambition. Where many contemporary bluesmen are content to turn out standard shuffles and boogies, he wants to bring it all together -- Hendrix blues-rock, Chicago blues, soul-blues, jazz and reggae. It's a difficult task, so it isn't entirely surprising that he and his band the Blues Mob don't quite achieve his dreams on his second album, Have Mercy!. What is surprising is how close they come. When Hill and the Blues Mob have everything working right, their music is a heady fusion with real passion and heart. These moments -- including "Women Make the World Go Round," "Africa in Her Name" and a reworking of "Stagolee" -- are powerful enough to make the failed fusions forgivable, and they suggest that Hill could develop into a distinctive talent in his own right.
