Some times I get tired of listening to new blues bands, for they may be fine players but I don’t hear much I have not heard before. I think this fine Greek outfit gets it right. These seven songs don’t scream the blues at you, but quietly and forcefully make it clear where their roots are entrenched. The vocals are gruff and are true to the blues, while the guitar work is quite clever and tasty throughout. The rhythm section keeps it steady with an almost edgy medium slow pace. ‘Jesse James’ had the vibe working that took you back to the mysterious wild west of old. That may be my favorite, but all seven songs here are worth a listen, for blues purists or rockers like me who like a good dose of smart thoughtful blues to take me to old and interesting places.
