Still standing after all these years... it's about hard times and tough knocks and keepin' on going. Dusty's second blues album takes you to the Wrong Side of Midnight with a wailin' Tele.
These blues range from laid-back twelve-bar blues (Flirtin' With The Blues) to a touch of 20s vaudeville-style blues (Too Early Blues), plus a tribute to the late, great Ray Charles in Blues For Brother Ray.
Still standing Album: $12.00 Canadian ($10.00 US)
Twilight Blues (4:30): Take a slow stroll in the twilight with this mellow, laid-back instrumental blues. Sun's going down and the evening is calm. Shows that blues music doesn't have to be sad.
Whiskey And Women (2:47): Whiskey and women / don't you know they're killin' me…. Mournful, minor-key 12-bar blues with a rock beat.
Too Early Blues (2:27): It's much too early for you to go home / it's a beautiful evenin', I hate to spend it alone… Light and cheerful acoustic country blues. Reminiscent of early (20's and 30's) vaudeville, sounds almost like an early radio broadcast. Really - it's MUCH too early for you to go home. Trust
Blues For Brother Ray (5:15): Extended instrumental blues with slow blues/gospel beat and a touch
of Amazing Grace. A tribute to the late, great Ray Charles, written on the day he died.
Flirtin' With The Blues (4:25): When a man lose his woman, no tellin' what he might do… Laid-back classic 12-bar blues with whimsical touches and a danceable beat.
Different Delta, Same Ol' Blues (5:36): Slow, extended delta blues instrumental with clean sound. Sad and reflective but with a rough edge.
Hard-Lovin' Woman (3:32): The gal I'm lovin', she's so good to me / she might not be every man's cup of tea... Hard-driving blues with a rockin' vocal about love.
Homesick Blues (3:19): Laid-back instrumental blues with a complex bass line and just a hint of country flavour. If you've ever been far from home and missing it, this one's for you.
Wah's Happenin' (3:17): Flashy lowdown blues-funk with nasty wah-wah guitar. Lead guitar practically talks. Part of a healthy blues breakfast.
Stormy Blues (4:57): Bad storm's comin' / blues fallin' down like rain... Extended, slow 12-bar blues with indigo vocals and a wailin' guitar to send chills up the spine.
New Columbus Stockade Blues (5:01): Way down in Columbus, Georgia / I want to go back to Tennessee... A new look at an old standard: an extended country/blues version of a traditional bluegrass song, done in a minor key. Establishes a doleful feeling.
Wrong Side Of Midnight (4:24): Lonely streets and sidewalks, with no direction left to choose / Down to just regrets now, nothin' more to lose... Slow extended waltz-time blues with some really tasty lead guitar and a hint of gospel instrumentation. The Tele's wailin' tonight!
