Way-kool 8th studio disc by Blindstone, a mega-awesome heavy guitar rock power trio from Denmark who dig in deep and pay serious musical homage on their outstanding "Tribute To The Blues" disc entitled "Blues-O-Delic Celebration". Includes 13 tracks (58 Mins) of excellent, powerful, bad-ass, Blindstone-ized, riffage, mojo & grooves that rock the house down and shine a bright light on their blues/rock musical roots. The "Blues-O-Delic Celebration" disc features a blistering set of way-kool "cover songs" by the following musical blues artists: The Three Kings: BB + Freddie + Albert, ZZ Top, Leslie West, Rocky Hill, Guitar Shorty, The Gales Brothers, Shuggie Otis, Peter Green and Jimi Hendrix. Many of the tracks are obscure and unknown, all landing rock solid killer and make for a truly excellent musical power trio "Blues-O-Delic Celebration".

Blindstone is fronted by the incredible six string talents of Martin J. Andersen, a legit modern day guitar hero. The man is a bad-ass, mojo rippin', riff:master who raises the bar and waves his heavy guitar freak flag high. MJA is a true "Six String Renegade" on a mission to "Keep the Rock alive", a bright new hope in the face of real guitar rock music. Not only is he an amazing guitarist, Brother Andersen is also an excellent, soul-powered vocalist who delivers some of his strongest vocal performances to date on the "B.O.D.C." disc. Blindstone also feature the awesome musical talents of Jesper Bunk on low-end bottom kool bass and Sigurd Jøhnk-Jensen on kick-ass drums, both excellent players who lock in and nail down the bad-ass, heavy Blindstone monster groove machine. As an added bonus on the killer version of "Hey Joe" that ends the new disc, Martin invites his Dad Jens and Son Magnus to jam on their guitars with him at this classic track. The end result features three generations having some serious, musical fun, celebrating a song that has very special meaning to all three guitar playing Andersens. We hope that you will enjoy this special generational guitar rock family celebration.

It's time to dig deep and "Rock Your Blues Mojo On The Killing Floor" with Blindstone on the essential, guitar rockin' "Blues-O-Delic Celebration" disc. Highly Recommended to fans of Hendrix, Robin Trower, Frank Marino, Leslie West, Eric Gales, Joe Bonamassa and to people who dig and appreciate serious, blues-based, heavy guitar rock music.

BLINDSTONE - "BLOOD STREAM"

 

 

· reviews ·

The Blindstone boys are back with a brand new album, this time a collection of covers amounting to a tribute to the blues.

Kicking off the album is a cover of BB King’s ‘Rock Me Baby‘. Now a cover can be two things. A carbon copy of the original or a band’s interpretation. Personally I prefer the latter as it’s interesting to listen to a song from a different angle so to speak. The original is a laid back track, while this is more forward, leaning more to blues rock which actually gives this track some balls!

Second up is ‘Blood Stream‘, originally released by Rocky Hill, brother of ZZ Top bassist Dusty Hill. Straight away this grabs you with wailing guitar, and energetic rhythm section, this is Blindstone putting their stamp on it. Being very familiar with the original I’m not disappointed with this rendition.

Next is Freddy King’s ‘Pack It Up‘ covered by Bonamassa on Blues Deluxe which is more of a direct copy but as I said earlier, I prefer things getting a little twist or two. This is once again adding that that distinctive Blindstone blues rock stamp, which makes it more of a foot tapper in my book.

‘Me And My Woman‘ is next on the bill from the criminally underrated Shuggie Otis. The Blindstone version thankfully manages to retain elements of that 70’s New York funk groove with the underlying blues elements.

‘Old School‘ is a track unknown to myself and was originally recorded by the wonderfully named Guitar Shorty. An appropriately named track for sure as it is quite simply old school blues.

The next track ‘Somethin’s Got A Hold On Me’ is based on the Gales Brothers song which i believe is written by Eugene Gales. A slow blues number, low down and dirty with a wonderful guitar tone. Great stuff indeed.

You can’t really have an album in tribute to the blues without certain artists being covered. And so we have Howlin Wolf’s ‘Built For Comfort‘, a song which I’ve always loved for it’s lyrics. Blindstone have transformed it into what sounds like early ZZ Top, so another box ticked for me.

I’m really enjoying the selection of artists being covered on this album, people not normally covered. The next track is Leslie West’s ‘By The River‘, another southern soaked blues rock extravaganza which sounds more full bodied than the original, not to knock the original mind in any way.

Having mentioned that ‘Little Old Band From Texas’ ZZ Top earlier we now arrive at a cover of the band’s ‘Bar-B-Q‘, originally to be found on Rio Grande Mud. Martin has nailed the sound of Billy Gibbons’ guitar. Just over three minutes of musical bliss.

The next cover version is of Slim Harpo’s ‘Finger On The Trigger‘. I can see why this appears as the original is quite a funky blues number and I know Martin is rather partial to a bit of funky guitar.

We re-visit the legendary BB King with ‘The Blues Come Over Me‘, the guitar riff just gets your foot tapping and your hand starts to wander into air guitar mode!

Slowing things right down is our next number ‘Stone Crazy‘. Again from a blues legend, Mr Buddy Guy. Blindstone have for want of a better phrase, thickened out the sound, giving it almost some angst, but not taking away the essence of the song.

I’m not in the slightest bit surprised which artist is being covered on the last track on the album. Blindstone wouldn’t be Blindstone without some Jimi Hendrix in the mix somewhere! The Hendrix track chosen to close is ‘Hey Joe‘. Well I’ve never heard the band do a poor job when it comes to playing anything by Hendrix and this is no exception. What’s really great is Martin’s son Magnus Andersen and Jens Andersen, his dad, are both guesting on guitar.

To sum up, if you're already a Blindstone fan then you’ll most certainly enjoy the album. If you want to hear a covers album that isn’t covers by number then this is the album for you.

Blindstone - "Ramblin' Man Fair" (2017) (Mirror:UK Review)

We headed to the Four Roses Bourbon Blues Stage and slowly made our way through the crowded tent towards some great blues/metal guitar work. Hogjaw were my favourite unexplored band last year, this year it was Blindstone, a trio from Denmark. Martin J. Andersen's guitar work left me watching in awe; not just twiddly diddly solo's for the sake of it, just real good songs from start to finish. One thing I love about festivals is bumping into relatively unknown bands that make you go "wow, they were good".
