Editorial Reviews

Blues comes in many disguises. Musically it can be cloaked in a man and his guitar; in country-blues; rock blues; folk-blues; blues-blues, whatever mask, Michael Packer has worn them all. From his early days, Michael, by his own confession was a bad boy: I must admit I was born a bad boy, and he went out to prove it and pay for it paying his blues so to speak. His redemption is his legacy, his testimonials, his recordings his confessions. And what a legacy it is. From his first solo days, still a teenager, to his innovative Papa Nebo, Free Beer bands (the period from which this set comes), to his many invocations of his blues bands, Michael has always counted the word, blues. My Time To Cry is the 11th CD in the growing continuation of preserving Michael Packer s story.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMERICAN BLUES NEWS REVIEW BY ROBIN MURRAY March 22, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
In my prior travels on the " Blues Highway", I told the story about the new venue in Middletown, NY (Brian's Backyard BBQ). I not only went to see Brian and Robin Remaley but also to see the Michael Packer Band. I met Michael some years ago and he can reach into your very soul with his powerful blues sound. He had his own stage at the prestigious Junk Joint Festival in Clarksdale, MI this year and also played with Honeyboy Edwards. He gave me his newest CD at that time and asked if I would review it..."My Time to Cry". The title "My Time to Cry", takes off with a solid guitar beat
and Michael's powerful high tenor voice as he sings about his sins and sorrows, Michael's real time to cry. "My Time to Cry" is the llth story of Michael's ever growing life as a bluesman extraordinaire.
Packer's career is a fascinating one to say the least, his first gig, at the age of 15 was at the Bitter End in Greenwich Village, NY. This multi-talented singer, songwriter, guitarist, keyboards formed Papa Nebo in 1969 and later Free Beer band. Traveling to the West Coast, Michael met George Thorogood who turned him on to the blues and he eventually came back to New York City. Packer's career soared and so did his drinking. In the late 80's and early 90's, Michael bottomed out and after an attempted robbery, did a year in jail at Riker's Island. Amazingly, this became the turning point in his life, Michael has maintained his sobriety since leaving Riker's. Music and Blues flowing in his body, Michael formed a band while at Riker's Island and appeared in an HBO special film called "The Prisoners of Riker's Island".
