Another review for, though not really folky.

GHALIA & MAMA’S BOYS – Let The Demons Out (Ruf Records RUF 1250) – Chicago-ish urban blues with a rather good Belgian singer/songwriter. Rather nicely done.

Review – Mike Brookfield

Review of a blues/rock CD by Mike Brookfield.

Another of my reviews for Blues/rock rather than folk, but I liked it anyway.

MIKE BROOKFIELD – Brookfield (Golden Rule Records GRCD003)

“Mike’s own web site describes the CD as “11 tracks of burnin’ blues rock“, which is not a bad description: he clearly knows one end of a Strat (or Les Paul!) from the other (and evidently is not a bad bass player, either).”

CD Review: Keith James, ‘Tenderness Claws’

One of my reviews for

KEITH JAMES – Tenderness Claws (Hurdy Gurdy HGA2926)

Settings of poems by Lorca, Kerouac, William Blake, Allen Ginsburg, Dylan Thomas, and Keith James himself. Plus a nice cover of White Room (the words for which were written by the beat poet Pete Brown, so on topic…) has already reviewed his ‘Always…’ CD from 2015, but I got a copy along with ‘Tenderness Claws’, so I may review it for this site.
