Product Description

The Legendary Rhythm & Blues Revue is an ongoing series of Tommy Castro-headlined shows with a cast of blues and R&B faves joining Tommy and band for a dynamic blues and soul party. The LR&BR concept was born on the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise, a bi-annual voyage featuring blues, R&B and roots rock acts. This 2011 release will appeal to all blues & roots fans, especially the 23,000+ people who have attended past cruises. Featured guests on the new release include Janiva Magness, Michael Burks, Rick Estrin and Joe Louis Walker.

Review

"A dynamic, take-no-prisoners blues and soul party that jumps out of your speakers" -- Blues Revue

"Tommy Castro can do no wrong...soulful, heartfelt vocals, and exquisite, stellar guitar work. A seamless blend of blues, gospel-flavored R&B, soul and roadhouse rock." -- Blues Revue

I have been to the Tommy Castro "Blues Revue" in NYC at B.B. Kings. This "live" CD brought back the wonderful night all over again. When I play it I am back at that wonderful show. This CD features many talented blues performers.

If you are a blues fan and of course a Tommy Castro fan you will love this CD. I have other Tommy Castro CD's and will continue to buy more and see him in concert whenever he is here on the east coast in the tri-state area. I have seen him live a few times and he and his band are amazing! Other CD's which are great are Tommy Castro's "Soul Shaker", and "Hard Believer" which I also purchased. My sister from the west coast introduced me to his music two years ago. I have been hooked since.

I highly recommend this CD and gave one as a Christmas gift to someone else who attended the "Blues Revue" this past August with me. He loved it.

This release comes out of Tommy's work on the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise over the last few years. He has hosted late night jams, and shared the stage with other Blues musicians in many forms and formations. He has decided to re-create the jams that occur on the LRBC, but with a nod to the old time traveling Blues Revues, by taking a group of some of the very best musicians today on the road and playing at festivals and shows around the country.

With the opening riff from 'Wake Up Call' we get a good taste of what we are in store for on this release. The splendid, yeoman type work from Tommy's band featuring Keith Crossan and Tom Poole on those sparkling horns, to the funky bass lines of Scot Sutherland, add a heaping shot of keyboards from Tony Stead and top it off with Ronnie Smith on drums as they work with various guest artists., as well as Tommy singing and playing some of the finest guitar I have heard him play.
So what makes these so special is the guests Mr. Castro features on these revues. We start with the 'Iron Man', Mr. Michael Burks just scorching our ears on 'Voodoo Spell'. Mr. Burks is one of the strongest players out there, and this cut showcases his ample talent very nicely. Next up is Mr. Joe Louis Walker, working with the TC Band doing a funky hip-shaking version of 'It's Shame'.

It's not all guitar based rock-tinged Blues here folks, this is a Revue so we get to sample some other styles and forms out there. On 'Never Say Never' we are treated to Sista Monica Parkers' full treatment of a slow blues torch song - and some super keyboard work by aforementioned Tony Stead. One of my all time favorite songs is 'My Next Ex-Wife' written and performed by Mr. Rick Estrin, whose harp gyrations and vocal treatment is first class.

If one thing can be said about Tommy Castro, it’s that he knows how to put on a show. So well in fact that he is the honorary captain of the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruises. This album features some of the highlights from The Revue’s recent live performances. The Revue consists of Tommy Castro, his band, complete with horn section, and a number of musical guests.

Magic is in the air as Castro totally reinvents Bob Dylan’s ‘Gotta Serve Somebody’. Possibly one of the hottest tracks on the whole album, it’s as if Stevie Wonder himself took the song, baptized it in a lake of funk, and handed it back.

Rick Estrin, who has recently taken over for Little Charlie as front man for the Nightcats, dishes out some smoking’ harp licks on ‘My Next Ex-Wife’. Estrin, not the only Nightcat in on this one, is joined on this one by his guitarist Chris ‘Kid’ Anderson, who adds some pretty hot licks to the song as well.

If I were to continue name dropping, I might ask what Michael Burks, Joe Louis Walker, Trampled Under Foot, and Janiva Magness all have in common. The answer would be that they all contribute smoking hot numbers on this album as well.

This CD is definitely a jewel for those who dig their compilation albums. Because Castro’s band is backing each track, the listener gets a really good mix of music, but with a common thread providing a fluid connection. Of course, this one comes highly recommended.

This CD has some rock solid blues numbers, great blues rock with the full band/horns/vocals. Excellent contributing artists, and a couple remakes of Castro song which are outstanding. Live is the best, and this CD provides all the energy and variety of a great band.

What can I say Tommy Castro and friends are the best. It is no hidden secret that Tommy Castro is on of the best Blues entertainers in the buisness and when you add the others on this cd you have a great cd. I would suggest getting the first Revue cd and have 2 great cd's

The TCB and his all star friends (Lonnie Baker Brooks, Magic Dick, Javina Magness & many others) flat out tear it up on this album. Tommy Castro is already known to be one of the hardest working AND most talented bluesmen in the business and this album, a selection of tracks from the various LRBR shows over the last few years firmly cements Tommy's status as a icon of the contemporary blues scene.Worth much much more than the current $5.00 sale price.
