Review

Bobby Radcliff is electrifying... like he’s plugged into an electric socket! -- Snooks Eaglin

His unmercifully aggressive fretwork and quivering vocal delivery leave you feeling musically mugged. -- Steve Walbridge in Blues Revue

It’s like a bolt out of the blue! -- John Sinclair, Radio Free Amsterdam

Remember the first time you heard "HooDoo Man Blues" by Junior Wells? Or maybe the first Butterfield album? Howzabout getting your head cleaned out by the Clash? I may be an old poop, but, to me, most everything these days sounds homogenized and prefabricated. This stuff is raw and unfiltered. It's like being onstage with a guitar master who, as one critic put it, is "the angriest player on earth." Sometimes it's crisp and clean, and the next minute it's fuzzed out of an old, shredded Fender amp. It's funky, country, screaming, rocking... there's even something that sonds like reggae. I can't get it out of my head. Stop me before I play it again!!!

Ever since I discovered Bobby Radcliff, I couldn't help but wonder why this man is so overlooked. Maybe it's because people don't go out to hear real music anymore, maybe it's because the radio stations refuse to play authentic music from people who actually offer enormous craft and talent in favor of polluting the airwaves with over-produced and similar-sounding pop music. Who knows - I still can't figure it out. What I do know is that Bobby Radcliff keeps the tradition of the grand ol' American music alive in the form of blues, rock, and soul -- sometimes all together in one.

If I had to pick one word to describe "Natural Ball", I'd probably go with "funky". Despite being predominantly rooted in blues music (especially West-Side Chicago), the songs Bobby chose for this record are played with such soul and feeling laid over snappy, often-danceable rhythms that it's hard not to classify them as funky. This isn't a coincidence. In his live shows, Bobby loves when people come out to dance and enjoys playing James Brown's "Sex Machine". :-)

This album's material has both covers and originals. The originals are very creative and engaging, especially the uplifting reggae-blues "Finally Found Myself" and the more traditional and biting "Lover Death Zone". Other originals are comprised of funky and quick guitar workouts: Bobby Radcliff is a remarkably fast hand on guitar, and these songs are a clear showcase of that. His thoughtful bluesy-jazzy improvisations are notable and should be great listening to the fans of electric guitar.

The covers on this album benefit from extensive interpretation and reworking.
