Nothing but ......

No guts, no glory!

A while back a friend (Joop) told me that he liked this weblog, but....... It's all about Blues greats, famous album and 'big names'. "If you really want to share Blues with people, you should also show them the lesser-known stuff and what's happaning today! Take a risk!".
Just the other day I was browsing in a record store where I came along this album of Cuban Heels. I remembered the name from the comments I got from Joop and bought the album. And what an album it is!
Cuban Heels is a band from the east of the Netherlands. With their solid Blues-Rock sound a comparison to Cuby& the Blizzards (a famous 60's Blues-Rock formation from the same region) is easely made. But that would be selling these young man short! This is Blues-Rock with an edge! To me some songs even sound like a pleasant mixture between a late R.L. Burnside and the early Doors!
Gutbucket Music is the third album by this band. The album contains two songs by F. McDowell (tracks 2 and 9) and one by J. Kimbrough (track 11). The other eight songs are Cuban Heels originals. Although the songs all have the same 'ring' to them they are so different that it's hard to say which one is my favorite.
Please do yourself a favor. Download this, listen carefully and then go out and buy this album!
