Blinded by the Night

The City Boys Allstars – BLINDED BY THE NIGHT:  If good ol’ get-down blues is just what you’ve been lookin’ for, you won’t be able to do without this CD; not only that, but as you listen to “Testimony“, you’ll realize that this was recorded LIVE… & the recording is flawless, so you’ll be “right there”!  The songs & the energy certainly bring back mem’ries of ol’ Leon Russell & Paul Butterfield Blues band live shows… especially on tunes like the instrumental slippin’ & slidin’ “Funky Peaches“… I’m just lovin’ this CD – it’s been spinnin’ over & over (& OVER) again on my player.   It was the juke-joint jumpin’ closer,  “City Boy Blues“,  that got my vote for favorite of the nine tracks laid down for your long-term blues pleasure, though… when it comes to blues, these boys surely know how to DO it!  I give the CD a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.98.  Get more information at The City Boy Allstars website.       Rotcod Zzaj
