HE'S GOT IT RIGHT - Long John Baldry will probably always be known less for his own recordings than for the musicians who passed through his bands in the '60s and '70s. Most notably, Rod Stewart, Elton John, Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts all surfaced, early in their careers, as members of various Long John Baldry Blues incarnations in England. Now residing in Vancouver, as he has for the past few decades, Baldry has enlisted members of Colin James' road band and James himself on his latest album. 'Whoa Back Buck' and Bonnie Dobson's 'Morning Dew', especially, are perfect vehicles for his whiskey and cigarettes voice. Ending Right to Sing the Blues is an interview with Baldry in which he discusses his career and the blues. While a twenty-four minute interview may seem excessive, Baldry is a captivating scholar of the Blues. Insightful and playful, his history lesson ends a good disc on a fine note.  - by Pieter Hofmann www.dropd.com

IT'S A WINNER! - From the very first track you know you have a winner ,what other artist gives such a infectious chuckle to the swing of sax and piano .With vocals a hundred years old and a rhythm section straight out of Saturday night .The CD is littered with class acts from Papa John King's beautiful slide shimmering through out, Colin James blasting on the title track and the lovely Kathi Mcdonald's vocals lighting up the night . Always the perfect gentleman, Long John weaves in and out of the guests contributions as the perfect foil to their talents lifting them to new heights To cap it all off there is 23 min. of a history of British Blues from one who was there, not looking in from the outside If you like this as much as me get On Stage Tonight to complement this -andrew reed/amazom.com
