CASEY JAMES-STRIP IT DOWN-“SUPERB BACK TO BASICS GROOVE” BY JOHN EMMS

Groove is everything and Casey James’ latest album Strip it Down has tons of it.

If you can’t get your groove on and tubes warmed up with tracks like Bulletproof featuring Texas Titan Delbert McClinton or the Tommy Castro-esque I Got To Go then you are not alive with the blues.

Tom Hambridge produces, writes, drums and finds the “inner” Casey James. The ballad and Little Willie John cover Need Your Love So Bad has a great feel that might hypnotize you under a Texas Moonlight night.

Elsewhere Hard Times Heartaches and Scars is one of the best blues-rock tracks of the year and Supernatural is an easy cross over rock track that James sings the hell out of.

Kevin McKendree pounds the 88’s on the rocker Makin Up and James rips up a cool solo gtr, while Stupid Crazy has a Van Morrison feel.

Title track is one of the best vocals and performances on the album.

An album you can put on from start to finish and feel good about it.

JOHN EMMS is a veteran music journalist, Sun Media contributor and singer/guitarist and songwriter with Canadian Blues Rockers THE SHAFTMEN
