5.0 out of 5 stars David Clayton-Thomas Still HAS the Blues!!! 19 Jan 2014
By David E. Pouliot - Published on Amazon.com
David Clayton-Thomas'new CD is full of superior musicianship, solid ballad's and of course DCT's great vocals.This CD will not disappoint! Somewhat captures the essence of the blues done BS&T style. This is a tremendous effort and soul clarity fills every track. Common Ground will make you think of your own relationships with your children (and it is spot on!) Calico Girl, Sounds So Sweet and What if I told You are some of my other favorites, but the CD itself is a treasure overall.

Tracks as follows:

1. A Blues for the New World
2. Second Chance
3. Calico Girl
4. Common Ground
5. It's All So La
6. Politics
7. Sounds So Sweet
8. Holy Moses
9. Frank and Margie
10. It Ain't Free
11. What If I Told You
12. The Sky's the Limit
13. The Lights On Broadway
5.0 out of 5 stars Gospel, Jazz, Reggae, & Rhythm And Blues For The New World 30 Jun 2014

David Clayton-Thomas, the former lead singer of Blood, Sweat and Tears, possesses one of the greatest singing voices of all time. Time has been kind to David, who was 72 years old when this album was recorded. If anything, his strong voice has gotten even deeper over the years. In addition, David wrote all of the songs on this album. The song "A Blues For The New World" starts the album out on a strong note. The topical song begins with the brass section, making it sound like an outtake from a Blood, Sweat and Tears album. The song deals with the strange and troubled times that we live in, but never in a preachy way. "Common Ground," a song about David's daughter and his relationship with her, was performed a cappella with a vocal quartet called Cadence. Even though there was no instrumental backing, the singers did perfect imitations of horns and a harmonica during the song! "Politics" is a socially conscious song, performed in a disarming reggae style. The song "Holy Moses" deals with Biblical themes, in an emotional gospel style. The jazzy song "It Ain't Free" deals with people's loss of privacy in the Internet age. The closing song, "The Lights On Broadway," deals with the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York City. Despite the horrors of that event, the album ends on an uplifting theme, noting that the lights up on Broadway still shine. This is arguably the best album that David Clayton-Thomas has ever done, and compares favorably with the best songs he did as the lead singer of Blood, Sweat and Tears.
