Production quality needn't suffer just because a recording is a "live" recording.
M. Erb
This is collection of 17 songs performed at the Harmonie in Bonn, Germany, by well known Blues singers; Candye Kane, Dani Wilde and Deborah Coleman.
Rama Rao
Overall, it's an enjoyable blues (or blues rock) CD that has a few great moments.

Format: Audio CD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
It took me awhile to warm up to this CD, but I'm glad I gave it the chance because there are parts of it that are quite good. My first reaction was "meh." It was OK, but nothing special, especially for a live album. There didn't seem to be the kind of interaction with the audience that can make a live album unique and make up for the introductions & applause interruptions. Maybe the German audience was too restrained; maybe it wasn't the right combination of performers (it took me a few times listening to be able to tell them apart); maybe it was the pacing of the sets.

The concert was set up into sets. The first song included all three women (and is pretty much forgettable) and then Dani Wilde has a four-song set. At 21, she is the youngest of the three performers and probably the least well known. Because of her age, her voice still has some maturing left to go. She also has a habit of putting in some high squeals I could definitely do without. She wrote all the songs in her set and for the most part they were very good. A couple sound too much alike and one of them is too big for where her voice is now. She is an excellent guitar player and that makes her an interesting performer I'll want to keep watching as she matures. The best song in her set, and maybe my favorite of the album, is "I Love You More Than I Hate Myself." It would be worth buying the download of this track.

The next set belonged to Candye Kane who has the biggest & best voice of the three. She wrote three of the five songs in her set, including the infectiously fun "You Need A Great Big Woman," during which she encouraged the skinny people in the audience to eat more schnitzel and strudel so they wouldn't feel left out. Though Ms.

This CD is representative of the modern live blues that you would hear at good Chicago Blues clubs. It is almost entirely the sort of good-time uptempo rocking shuffles that made Alligator Records what it was founded to be (this CD isn't on Alligator, but it's the sort of stuff Bruce Iglauer loves). The songs are well played, well sung by tough gals. The backing band is solid, and lead guitarist Laura Chavez sounds like someone I'd like to hear more. Maybe she will get a shot on her own CD down the road.

As someone who has spent many an enjoyable evening at blues clubs, I must say a lot of the reviews of this CD are unfair and off the mark. This is intended as good-time music to drink by, and it does that just fine. Not the sort of depth fans of the Mississippi Delta generation bluesmen brought, but that era is gone.

We have a live performance of three musicians. They are not a group; their band is provided for the event, and I must say it is good. What we have is a recording of a show. Blues are not homogeneous. Therefore I ask you to read this review as commentary, not as critical because through the wonders of Amazon, you can listen to the samples. Because Blues are wild and mixed, all the more reason to listen to the samples.

A word about Ruf Records: This label is small. It exists upon the stature of dead artists, and upon the living manager of one fine dead blues man. Here we find some of the work of the late Luther Allison. The owner of Ruf was his last manager. And we have the last surviving member of Canned Heat.

Now Ruf is using this base to promote new talent. Please take a moment to listen and consider.

Format: Audio CD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
There is nothing better in music than a great blues song. Even blues that isn't that great is still pretty good and that is where the Blues Caravan: Guitars and Feathers falls into. The main problem with the album is most of the songs are nondescript and it is sometimes hard to distinguish one from another. Most songs are originals from Deborah Colman, Candye Kane and Dani Wilde with a couple covers thrown in from Ray Charles and Willie Dixon. But if you have some hankering for some blues, this disk will certainly be sufficient.

I like a very wide variety of music, and like to experiment with new artists. At one point I even joined "Adventures in Music" club that sent you a new CD by "undiscovered" artists every couple of weeks. So knowing that I like the Blues, and having read the All Music Guide intro to this CD it was a given that I would have to listen to "Guitars and Feathers".

With the exception of a couple of numbers Ill talk about later it was not what I expected. I was not sure I was even listening to the album described. (A good reason to have many reviewers and dissenting opinions I suppose). My overall impression is not that of a live Blues album, but that of an Acid Rock, late sixties free jamming session. Complete with occasionally poor recording, echoes, muffled vocals and a lack of balanced mixing. When a comparison to Joplin is made I agree with the style, but style alone is not enough here, where is the synergy between the vocals and the music? Here the band is truly outstanding, they overwhelm the singers with rapid swooping riffs. In turn it seems the post production cranked up the vocals volume to highlight the singers. It really seems that the band and the singers are each doing their own thing. "Toughest girl alive", "Come undone", "Crazy little thing", "Heal my Blues", "My country man", and "Won't leave" are good examples of this.

The band; Govert van der Kolm-keys, Denis Palatin-drums, Michael Griot-bass, and Laura Chaves-guitar (Dani Wilde is also on the guitar herself) really do shine. They are a cross between Jimmy Hendrix and Robert Cray, the guitar work is that excellent. In turn the ladies use the "live" venue to compete with the music rather than complement each other.
