Rita Coolidge

Rita Coolidge – Safe In The Arms Of Time

I had a first listen to this new Rita Coolidge release without looking at any background notes or recording / players information, just to let the songs sink in and as a result was left with some firm impressions.

My Indigo

My Indigo -My Indigo

There’s a rather unusual inspiration to this release, leading to an album that both had to be made and is something of a left turn. The act is fronted by Sharon den Adel, star vocalist and songwriter with Within Temptation, well-known to conneisseurs of Female Fronted Symphonic Metal groups.

Mike Zito

Mike Zito – First Class Life

Zito doesn’t go for that racing around, foot on the monitor, extreme face-pulling style of guitar. He just plays out and keeps his cool, channelling soul through his fingertips.

John Mayall – Three For The Road

This release finds veteran Mayall leading a trio-format crew on various stages for this live album. Something of a departure as John usually has a hotshot lead guitarist on board, but this decision does mean that the three musicians have to adapt to the configuration and play out and it does bring something fresh out of the songs included. read more

Simon Kent – In Another Life

When this singer-songwriter first came to our attention a few years back, we made a point of going to see him perform and have a chat with him. There are several influences wove into Kent’s individual style, one of which I thought was the edgy pop melodic roll of early Duran Duran. read more
