Doug Collette's Best Releases Of 2020

Read "Doug Collette's Best Releases Of 2020" reviewed by Doug Collette


Given the challenging year that was 2020, “Best of..." lists may turn out to be the high points of the last twelve months. Certainly there were times in the spring when it seemed as though a drought of new music might be inescapable, but as summer turned to fall, the titles kept rolling out, with the ...

Eric Johanson: Below Sea Level

Read "Below Sea Level" reviewed by Doug Collette


In choosing his side projects and production efforts, North Mississippi Allstars' Luther Dickinson has been as discerning as he has been diverse. Witness The Wandering, Sisters of the Strawberry Moon and New Moon Jelly Roll Freedom Rockers, to name just a few, and now add his collaboration with Eric Johanson to the growing list. The latter ...

Savoy Brown: Ain't Done Yet

Read "Ain't Done Yet" reviewed by Doug Collette


Kim Simmonds might not be quite as highly regarded in the contemporary blues milieu as “The Godfather of British Blues," John Mayall, but the former's forty-first album under the Savoy Brown monicker suggests he ought to be. As his profile has risen over the last five years, commensurate with his increased activity on the road and ...

As a result, this album under the aegis of founder and titular leader Kim Simmonds has more in common with The Devil to Pay (Ruf Records, 2015), an equally uncompromising tribute ...

Up From The Roots: Cary Morin, Colin James, Joanne Shaw Taylor & Chris Youlden

Read "Up From The Roots: Cary Morin, Colin James, Joanne Shaw Taylor & Chris Youlden" reviewed by Doug Collette


Blues musicians invariably cover traditional genre material because it connects them with the wellspring of emotion at the heart of this music and illustrates the major influences on their personal style. Sometimes these gestures are more obvious than others, but as are those of Cary Morin's on his latest album, they can bespeak bold courage as ...

Savoy Brown: Witchy Feelin'

Read "Witchy Feelin'" reviewed by Doug Collette


Even though the impact of the music isn't any less potent, the artist designation for Witchy Feelin' is notably different than that of the prior album by Kim Simmonds and Savoy Brown. In an act of combined humility and self-confidence on the part of the leader, the billing goes wholly to the band and that spirit ...

Foghat: Under the Influence

Read "Under the Influence" reviewed by Doug Collette


At this point in its history, Foghat's family tree may be approaching the density of the very band from which they originally emerged, Savoy Brown. Although bassist/vocalist Craig MacGregor is a second generation Foghatter, drummer Roger Earl is the only original member of the group still in the lineup that recorded Under the Influence, but as ...
