I am putting ‘me’ in your hands with Blues Everywhere. It is the story of, well, MY blues everywhere: geographically – as in the years gone by I played pretty much everywhere from England to the US, many European countries, etc.; logistically – I played shows everywhere in terms of big festivals and tiny pubs and clubs and anywhere in between. Emotionally – my blues soul and my entire soul in fact experienced all kinds of blues and all kinds of events and people over many decades and their impact on my feelings is reflected in quite all songs here. At the end of this journey I found myself as blues artist and as a man – for this I am eternally thankful to all that made it possible – especially my band and artists involved – many a legend in their own right. For example Laurie Garman started and recorded with Freddy King (3 albums), then 3 years in Yardbirds and recordings with Bob Marley!
BLUES RECORD OF THEY YEAR 2014 WINNER! High Energy Chicago Rocking Blues headlined by Ike & Tina Turner's first singer - Jimmy Thomas, harmonica legend Paul Lamb and top British bluesmen.
Blues Eternity groups some of the very top bluesmen around. JIMMY THOMAS started his singing career with IKE TURNER's Blues Review and his subsequent career in Europe included cooperating with the ROLLING STONES, JOHN LENNON, GARY MOORE and others of that ilk. PAUL LAMB - guesting here - is a British Hall of Famer and widely recognized as world's top harmonica maestro. MARK OLBRICH - band leader and bassist has been called "the grooviest blues bassist there is" by European media. Drummer Sam Kelly won numerous drummer of the year award. Guitarist and singer EDDIE ANGEL is recognized as the top up-coming string-man, recently toured the world with Earl Thomas. The music they produce has huge emotional content that sets it apart from most others and blends classical blues heritage personified by Jimmy Thomas with the British Blues/Blues Rock adding enthusiasm and huge dose of emotional content. The bonus track - Jack Daniels - was issued as a single in Europe, where it briefly topped some regional charts.
