RHYTHMS - AUSTRALIA 'S ROOTS MUSIC MONTHLY (Mark D. Blues Editor, Presenter of 4ZZZ's Nothin' But The Blues) This album presents one of the country's hardest working, most widely travelled and most popular electric blues combos, just as most of us remember seeing them last. No studio 'sweetener' in the form of horns or fancy production - just the basic quartet in all it's throbbing funky blues-sodden glory.

Nine Shane Pacey originals, one almost-instrumental by the whole band, one by 'new boy' Mitch Grainger (whose guitar and excellent harp are welcome additions) and a brace of covers. Pacey's Albert Collins - influenced guitar style (sauced with soul and funk) supports an expressive voice which communicates emotion without sacrificing clarity - and his lyrics are worth hearing - not profound, but touching on our collective experiences. Alan Britton (bass) and Declan Kelly (drums) are definite groove-setters. You don't have a choice. Your body parts have to make rhythmic movements when these two are at work. The soloists work in that groove - no hysterics.

I find that the CD requires a couple of listens before individual tracks make their presence felt. This is not a bad thing. Albums which give a quick fix are often not stayers. My guess is that this one is a grower and a stayer. Nice one.
