Curran – Straight Up Blues
This is Curran’s first
CD, 13 tracks, 9 originals.
While not a bad attempt at
a first, at times it strayed across the country
line. There was an abundance of instrumental
tracks. After each song started I thought
I was listening to a loop, the guitar playing
is OK the vocals were better. Keep in mind
Brian is a young man, fast forward a couple
years, add some more musicians to this guys
accompaniment he will be fantastic. For now,
I would rate this as fair.
was a pretty good song, nice walking lines,
was a country instrumental track, a banjo
would have been cool.
Believe in Love”
was one of my favorite songs, I liked the
was reminiscent of a Delta Blues, the melody
seemed a little simple and repeats often,
there was a cool walking line towards end
has a quicker tempo than most, liked the slide.
Got to Have Me”
reminded me of a sunny day 60’s song,
the tune had great vocals. I liked this track.
sounded too country, not bad finger pickin’,
wouldn’t be my choice for blues CD.
was the best song on the CD. Very much of
a Robert Johsonesque tune.
for now, peace.
