Album Saturday: Blues Rock – Summary

Blues CreationBlues Creation
★★★

A quite enjoyable album by this Japanese band. Steppin’ Out is very well performed.

 

John Mayall & the BluesbreakersBlues Breakers with Eric Clapton
★★★★☆

Contains many exceptional tracks and the feeling is just right. A definite listening experience.

 

Ten Years AfterSsssh
★★★★

The groovy and somewhat dire sound of the organ combined with the amazing guitar skills of Alvin Lee won’t leave anyone unsatisfied.

 

The AnimalsAnimalism
★★★☆

Eric Burdon sure could sing, and each song makes it very clear to the listener. The band also variates the loudness of the tracks with great succession, which time to time creates a hypnotic, almost magical effect.

Taj MahalTaj Mahal
★★★★

Skillful playing and the wholeness of the album leads to an uninterrupted flow of blues.

 

The Allman Brothers BandIdlewild South
★★★☆

With its gentle heartland touch, this an album that rocks the background. The real deal comes with the live recording In Memory of Elizabeth Reed and the cover of Hoochie Coochie Man.

 

George Thorogood and the DestroyersGeorge Thorogood and the Destroyers

partially unlistened

 

Derek and the DominosLayla and Other Assorted Love Songs
★★★☆

My mind is torn apart between the sweet guitar solos and the overall sound, which is often too pop for my taste. However, the album gradually improves towards the end, and is crowned by the masterpiece Layla.
