BACHMAN-HEAVY BLUES-“INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH RIFFOLOGY” CD-REVIEW BY JOHN EMMS

Combining explosive riffs and late 60’s power trio dynamics Randy Bachman re-invents himself and in the process delivers an excellent new album with Heavy Blues.

Backed by the vigorous female rhythm section of drummer Dale Anne Brendon and bassist Anna Ruddick the trio rips through dangerous hooks and well crafted songs.

Bad Child features guest axe-man Joe Bonamassa flying in a Cream-vibe solo, while Neil Young pinches out harmonic overtones on Little Girl Lost, and then Peter Frampton and Bachman combine on the title track which I could best describe as Humble Pie meets BTO.

In one word this album is just plain exciting.

Elsewhere, Wild Texas Ride burns high jalapeno riffology, and simply put Ton Of Bricks should be an immediate add to new classic rock radio.

Recorded in one week and produced and mixed by Kevin Shirley, Heavy Blues in undeniably powerful.

JOHN EMMS is a 30 year veteran music journalist, Sun Media Freelancer, roots radio host and songwriter/guitarist with Canadian Blues Rock Honchos THE SHAFTMEN
