Philly Cheeze blues favorite “Black Crow Moan” review

“Slathered in hot buttery soul “The Devil Don’t Love You”, features the great Joe Louis Walker. He keeps it funky on guitar as Neals takes me to church on keys. Walker also delightfully appears on title track “Black Crow Moan“. The call and response vocals are emotionally-charged as the notes from Walker’s guitar weightlessly drift skyward. This dark masterpiece, covered in ominous overtones, oozes with authenticity.”

Yeah the Devil he is up to no good as usual and this year is no different. Starting 2020 with a fabulous music festival in paradise for me ending in quarantine for months. Here’s my official video: THE ….. DONT LOVE YOU 

More new cool blues reviews from Philly Cheeze … “St. Holmes also brings a bowlful of slow-cooked blues and searing guitar to Neal’s cover of Big Mama Thornton’s “Ball and Chain”. Eliza sings this with fearless abandon as Shakey builds a wall of thunder on drums. It’s an absolutely wonderful experience to hear.”

Just so many times performing a song onstage until it ends up on a record. This song is the perfect example, I could not play it anymore without someone saying “do you have that on recording” and I say No. Well not anymore, not anymore…  Here’s a video from Ann Arbor Blues Festival 50th Anniversary VIDEO 

Thanks Philly! I can’t wait to get back out there and get on the road! See you soon check out his great music blog above.
