Sue Foley – New Used Car Sue Foley – New Used Car
RUF Records 2006 Recorded at Planet Studios Montreal Canada

Sue Foley is a talented and gifted artist who gives a blend of tastes in this very good CD. The 12 cuts here range from hot fast tunes to slow funky blues with a drippin’ soul. Sue has won many great awards and is widely recognized for her great guitar work. She is also the author of “Guitar Woman” a book giving a concise and biographical account both antidotal and through interviews of women guitarists throughout the world.

In addition to Sue’s talent display she is joined by Graham Guest in keys, Mike Turrene on Bass, Tom Bona on Drums, and Core Madadgen on Percussion. A solid ensemble and very tight.

Here’s my take on the cuts:
1 – New Used Car – very hot a little “R & R ish” but good
2 – Make It Real – Getting’ the blues groove goin’
3 – When I Come Back To You – Easy groove good flow
4 – Absolution – Great slow blues - Well done
5 – Sugar – Cute Could be better arranged but a good tune
6 – Do It Again – Too much country in Sue’s voice for me but again a good tune
7 – Mother – She’s back in a groove good mojo
8 – Long Tomorrow – Good ballad not too bluesy
9 – Little Things – Again back into a solid blues groove
10 – Found My Love – Back into the country sound again
11 – Deep Freeze – Nice blues upbeat and tight
12 – Change Your Mind – Good R & B to wrap it up

All in all a good CD but needs to get the country out and the delta in for a better “Blues”rating so it gets a respectable 4.5 on my STLBluesometer.
