This latest release from Mr. Castiglia dishes out more of the same ol' great blues from what I consider the finest blues singer on the scene today! A great guitarist as well, though I usually prefer more flash in blues-rock. But that's just me...I can appreciate the fact that Albert chooses a more traditional, restrained approach to his guitar playing to match his classic, unequalled blues vocal style. There are plenty of great blues-rock guitarists out there today with plenty of flash on the fretboard but who are mediocre singers at best. Fortunately, Albert clearly does not fall into that category. Albert may not employ many speed licks in his playing, but he more than makes up for it in intensity and feeling, which are more important when playing real blues, anyway! Like Joe Bonamassa (whose music I also love), Castiglia takes an old blues number on his most recent album and applies a scorching blues-rock feel to it...in this case, "Parchman's Farm". A great version, that one!

Also, Albert's piano player is awesome on this album! On some of his previous albums, the pianist didn't exactly knock me out...pretty rudimentary. Not so on this release! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Albert Castiglia (pronounced "ka-STEEL-ya")
Has come out with yet another wonderful Blues CD! This CD captures the blues man at his best!

The CD kicks off with 2 well written songs by Albert!
the title cut, "LIVING THE DREAM" and "THE MAN" 2 songs that talk about current life for the common person and he could not be more spot on then in these 2 songs! We are also blessed with that "SHREDDING GUITAR" that Albert can do better then just about anybody on the circuit today!
We then move into a great rendition of Freddie King's "FREDDIE'S BOOGIE" where again, Albert shows his guitar skills on the song in true concert form! From this song we move into another awesome cover of "DIRECTLY FROM MY HEART TO YOU" where on this song he really shows the pipes off along with the licks! As well as on "SOMETIMES YOU WIN" Into another powerfully sung song with "PUBLIC ENEMY #9" which leads us to one of the best covers of a Paul Butterfield song that I have heard in "LOVIN CUP" Where lovin ends we slid into 2 more CASTIGLIA's originals and they don't disappoint. First is "FAT CAT" and then "I WANT HER FOR MYSELF" which is another powerfully sung song! This song along with a harp player will be a great acoustic song for any coffee shop or between sets at a show.
Which then leads to my personal favorite song on the CD! A song that is perfectly balanced for any Albert Castiglia fan! "WALK THE BACKSTREETS" is done with so must style and grace that as he moves thorough the song, all your hair will stand up. Albert sings the songs beautifully, and SLAYS the guitar many times in the song. About halfway through the song he absolutely SHREADS on the guitar, anybody trying to play air guitar won't be able to keep up with him!

Albert Castiglia's CD's just keep getting better and better. I've been fortunate enough to see him perform live a couple of times as well.
