I'm just speaking as a listener, a blues lover, and although I might not know much, I know what I like. This girl can wail, in all the ways that the blues need to be heard. Equally important are the musicians who accompany her, each with their own gifts. This is a collection of soul with a little bit of fire and sass added, the sum of the parts make this a must have. Thanks Deb and Everyone for putting it out there. I needed it. :-)

Now this is some powerful blues that is as gritty as it is real. Ms. Landolt enlisted a who's who of artists on this release and the final product is one that you will play till your CD player burns out.

Right out of the box we get posed the musical question, `What Would A Good Woman Do' strutting, fun and featuring Roomful of Blues vocalist Phil Pemberton on vocals we are put on notice that this is going to be a straight ahead force of nature release that is strong and long on talent (as in Deb).

Changing it up from funky stepping to country rail riding we hear `Train To Tucson'. A musical story of the travels out to Arizona complete with stinging guitar by Colin John, accentuated by the thump-a-thump drumming of Jan Roll creates a aural travelogue that Amtrak would be good to adapt.

`The Last Time' showcases Ms. Landolt's ability to express the deep soul-fullness contained within her vocal prowess. Presenting a stark and dark reality that exists for many folks in their work-a-day desperate lives, we hear the stated resolve to make that change and break the cycle of longing and uselessness only to hear the alarm clock go off and resume the gerbil like life style on the ever familiar tread mill of a life unfulfilled.

The choice of covers is ever important when pairing them with such strong originals as we have here. The selection of Ian Moore's `Muddy Jesus' is a well thought out addition. Featuring such luminaries as Chris Peet, Damon Fowler, Chuck Riley, JP Soars and Victor Wainwright - otherwise known as Southern Hospitality - this is as good of a cover of this tune as you will get. With a solid strut to it, and the excellent work by the band creates a wonderful backdrop for Ms. Deb's vocals.

Raise Your Hands is the VizzTone Records debut for newcomer Long Tall Deb, capitalizing on her success in Memphis with the Blues Foundation's International Blues Challenge.

Raise Your Hands is a brash and brassy collection featuring 10 originals and two covers (Tom Waits' "New Coat of Paint" and Ian Moore's "Muddy Jesus") that finds the vocalist working with bandmates John Popovich on piano and organ, bassist Melvin Powe, guitarists Sean Carney -- a successful solo artist in his own right -- and Dave Clo, and drummer Jan Roll. She also enlists the help of blues heavyweights Jimmy Thackery, Reese Wynans, Big LLou, Shaun Booker, Damon Fowler, Colin John, Matt O'Ree, Philip Pemberton, Nikki Scott, JP Soars, Bart Walker, Victor Wainwright and the Roomful of Blues Horns.

That's a lot of talent on one album and it would be easy for a vocalist to get lost in those seas but that doesn't happen here. Deb is a capable, engaging vocalist and these talents understand the blues tradition of ensemble playing, which is what we get on Raise Your Hands.

Deb opens the record with some swagger on the cocky, trash-talking "What Would A Good Woman Do." A funky beat propels the finger-wagging, fun-loving rant that good women tired of do-wrong men will surely love. Even the fellas ought to get a charge from the hard rocking, hard charging number that will likely be a hallmark of live shows. "Hush Your Mouth" takes a little velocity off the fastball but there's still a razor sharp rhythm and some great vocal work, both Deb's lead and the harmony arrangement.
