Blue Touch is a band based in the UK and perform, what they like to call, Blues Rock with an edge, and features Neil Sadler (Guitar and Vocals), Adam Cleaves (Guitar and Vocals), Andrea Maria (Vocals), Hugh Lawrenson (Drums), and Merv Griffin (Bass). Additional artists on "IV" included Keith Jones (Harmonica) and Woosehill Philharmonic.

"IV" consists of 12 Tracks which include a nice mix of originals, covers, and traditional arrangements. Of the 4 originals, Neil Sadler, Adam Cleaves, Andrea Maria, and Dennis Siggery, are credited with the writing, with Neil co-writing 3, Adam and Dennis co-writing 1 and Andres co-writing 1 and solely writing 1.

For the covers and traditional arrangements, Blue Touch chose a wide assortment of songs, such as "Big Bad Handsome Man", a song by Irish rockabilly singer Imelda May, "Hangman Jury", "a song by American hard rock band Aerosmith, written by lead singer Steven Tyler, guitarist Joe Perry, and outside collaborator Jim Vallance and is a re-working of an old blues song, used by numerous artists over the years, particularly Lead Belly and Taj Mahal", "32-20", known as 32-20 Blues, "is a song by Delta blues musician Robert Johnson, The title refers to the .32-20 Winchester cartridge. The song is partially based on the Skip James song "22-20 Blues", and was an arrangement by Blue Touch on this album.

A few of the other covers and traditional arrangements were, "St. James' Infirmary", "an American folksong of anonymous origin, though sometimes credited to the songwriter Joe Primrose (a pseudonym for Irving Mills)", "Wayfaring Stranger", "is a well-known American spiritual/folk song likely originating in the early 19th century about a plaintive soul on the journey through life. It became one of Burl Ives's signature songs, included on his 1944 album The Wayfaring Stranger", and a song that I thought I would have never heard covered, Tony Orlanda and Dawn's "Tie A Yellow Ribbon". "Tie A Yellow Ribbon" was actually done really well, in more of a bluesy style, which kind of threw me off a bit until I realized the song they were singing.

All the songs on "IV" were performed very well and certainly lived up to, Blues Rock with an edge, which the edge part being more on the beginning of the album and the Blues and Blues Rock part being more at the end of the album, especially the last 4 Tracks, ""St. James' Infirmary", "32-20", "Trouble", and "Magnolia Blues". In fact, it was the last track "Magnolia Blues", that really got my attention on how good they sounded doing a straight Blues song and I had the feeling that I would like to hear more of that style from Blue Touch, not saying that the other music was not enjoyable, just that there is a nice little Blues niche there that they might want to fully explore someday.

"IV" was certainly an interesting and entertaining album to listen to and was a great intro to a band I had not heard of. Everyone involved was just great whether it was the Singing or the Instrumental aspect. I particularly liked the fact that, as far as singing was concerned, they mixed it up a bit with a few different members taking the lead, with the icing on the cake being Andrea Maria.

There is a lot of nice stuff on "IV" and it is certainly an album I would not hesitate in recommending for those that not only like Blues and Blues Rock, but also for those that don't mind a little extra treat now and then. ~Review by John Vermilyea (Blues Underground Network)
