Product Description

Amazon.com

For years, the main thing guitarist and vocalist Sue Foley has had going for her is potential, based on the strength of her debut, Young Girl Blues. While subsequent albums were good, they were marred by an inconsistency of tone. But at long last, Foley has lived up to the potential promised in her debut with Love Comin' Down. Judging from the laid-back rhythm of "Two Trains" and the slow and easy "Empty Cup," Foley's relaxed a lot, and that's just what was needed. This album is perfect summer listening; the title track sways and winds like a slow-moving river, with Joe Cabral's saxophone lending just the right touch. Foley's guitar and vocal skills have improved considerably. For the former, check out the instrumental "Mediterranean Breakfast." As for the latter, her vocal range is limited, but she uses it all, and her voice has acquired new expressiveness and depth. The original songs, which make up most of the album, are uniformly strong, but special mention must be made of Foley's version of "Same Thing," which is so smooth and sensual, it'll raise goosebumps. Foley has also mastered the art of mixing the bitter with the sweet, that quality so essential to good blues music. Love Comin' Down is a class act all around. --Genevieve Williams

5.0 out of 5 stars Am I Worthy Of Sue Foley's Beautiful Music? December 3, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Originally from Canada, Sue put together a demo, which she sent to Antone's (a blues bar and record label in Austin, Texas. Upon hearing said demo Antone's knew they had a true blue sweetheart on their hands. Sue moved to Austin to pursue her record deal and career. A move that pleases this Austin music scene socialite!
Sue's slower side on this CD is simply powerful and tear jerking. Tracks like "Emtpy Cup" and "Am I Worthy" show how Sue can move your soul to tears and slay your sorrow with her vocals. These songs are highly emotional and powerful.
For a more upbeat pace tracks like "You're Barking Up The Wrong Tree", and "Let Me Drive" Sue takes a stand in each song, showing her impish (red head) side, and her guitar moves you to dancing!
Sue is a rarity somewhat, she is the entire package. She plays her own instrument, sings and is female too. Her voice is a sweet, moving, determined with a splash of echo. WOW! A red headed fiery blues beauty striving to be an equal in a genre dominated mostly by blues men as legends. Does Sue have what it takes? Well my rating should tell you that I've got nothing but love comin' down for Sue Foley!

5.0 out of 5 stars A blues triumph! December 26, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Sue Foley desrves to be better known. To be fair the blues genre is not the best route to fame and fortune these days. And there never has been too close a relationship between talent and success, less so now than ever. Sue Foley is certainly not short on talent being, among other things, a fine guitarist: her guitar playing (acoustic and electric) is not flashy but very satisfying, finely crafted or rough-and-ready as the occasion demands. She has also developed as a singer. Her girlish voice is sometimes Dylanesque but at other times reaches much further back into blues traditions, but is no less her own voice for that, invariably expressive and appealingly easy on the ear. She also writes a lot of her own material and very excellent it is too, so much so that it can be difficult to sort her songs from the covers so seamlessly do her own songs blend into the background of older material on her albums.
All these qualities are present on Love Comin' Down but to a greater extent and in a more full and rounded way than some of her earlier albums. Whether the recent break-up of her marriage contributed to the depth of feeling in the songwriting and the recording is debatable. The tone of the album seems to me to be perhaps not exactly cheerful but certainly warm, uplifting even. The musicians do a solid job throughout maintaining the steady rockin' groove that pervades. Altogether a brilliant album. Highlights? Well there isn't a bad track but Two Trains, Love Comin' Down itself and Let My Tears Fall Down are my current favourites. I'm really looking forward to seeing her at Bishopstock in May 2001.

5.0 out of 5 stars sue foley rocks! October 12, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Sue Foley, blueswoman from Canada via Austin, is something special. Her voice is not a powerhouse growl like Big Momma Thornton, but very delicate and beautiful, even when she tries to belt it out. The first thing I noticed when I first heard her on the "Every Road I Take" compilation was that I'd never heard a chick play guitar like that. She's definitely no SRV, but well versed in many styles and uses what skill she has to the fullest extent. Her fretwork is impressive enough, but coupled with an outstanding ear for catchy tunes and you are looking at one of the most talented musicians to never break through to the mainstream. That's definitely a shame, but a real treat for those who know;).
"Love Comin' Down" is without question her most complete album yet, though there is a special place in my heart for "Without A Warning." On this one Sue's originals take center stage, though differentiating them from the covers without checking the booklet is a tough job, which is quite a credit. Her own songs tend to lean toward the sad and lonely, which is exactly what makes a great blues artist.
I consider myself a budding expert on the blues and I believe anyone would enjoy this album, blues afficionados or casual music listeners alike. Consider yourself one of a lucky few to get your hands on any of her discs, but this one is a great starting point. Bottom line, for those of you who can tell good stuff from bad, you owe it to yourself to at least give Sue Foley a listen. You won't regret it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Burning the Blues October 31, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Sue Foley's CD is confident and deserves praise. A guitar strum opens on "Two Trains" before it breaks out into a full blues rocker. "Empty Cup" is a slow song with lumbering rhythms and beautiful harmony vocals by Lucinda Williams. Buy the CD for the title track, a hot burning blues rocker. Colin Linden, whose "Raised by Wolves" CD is equally hot, blisters the guitar on "Love Comin' Down" as Sue sings, "My heart is like a sunset." "You're Barking Up the Wrong Tree" is an uptempo old-style piano blues, "Stop talking lah-dee-dah to me." Foley milks the juice out of her electric guitar on "Same Thing." "Let My Tears Fall Down" is a slow tune with vocals that bring to mind the best of Bessie Smith. The vocals are fuzz-distorted and the electric guitar is up full throttle on "Let Me Drive." "To Be Next to You" lets Sue wail as a soulful crooner. "Mediterranean Breakfast" is a stunning instrumental with Spanish guitar and flamenco-flavored percussion melding with Foley's wailing electric guitar. Don't miss this one! The next track has Sue's slow soul searching vocal, "Do I let you inside me? Am I worthy of love?" "Oh Baby (We Got A Good Thing Going)" is a great boogie-woogie blues. The CD ends with "How Strong," a slow tune with acoustic guitar and Foley's passionate vocal. This music is mature, confident blues from one of the best. Enjoy!
