My last battery was cheaper,but after 18 months needed charging every hour. The genuine Toshiba product lasts much longer.It's the old saying: You get what you pay for.Five star service from this supplier.

5.0 out of 5 stars This guy just keeps getting better and better, 9 May 2013

This review is from: Hurricane (Audio CD)
Danny's eagerly awaited newbie fully lives up to expectations.We have 9 superb self-penned numbers, starting with Prisoner of The Blues which storms in like a testosterone-fuelled bull elephant on speed.Next up,a Mississippi blues tribute to Hubert Sumlin,Greenwood 31, followed by a very reflective ballad, Can't Hold On. The rest of the album is a delightful mix of styles, including the Hookeresque Devil's Got a hold On Me and two nice slow blues, I'm Broken and Losing You. The last track, Painkiller, about an elicit hotel tryst, starts off slowly, building to a climax which begs you to replay the whole album. Weak track? There isn't one. If you're familiar with Danny's work , you won't be disappointed.I would say this is the most mature of Danny's albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reincarnation of Stevie Ray Vaughan, 1 May 2013
This review is from: Move My Soul (Audio CD)
I heard about this artist from my brother in South Africa, and ordered it on the strength of the reviews. It's difficult to listen to this album without making comparisons to the late, great guitar legends Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimi Hendrix .If you like them, I guarantee you're gonna like this.There is not one weak track on the album. I'd like to hear more of his stuff, but his albums seem to be very difficult to obtain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stripped-down, foot-tapping and highly infectious acoustic blues, 28 Feb 2013

This review is from: Who Needs Shelter (MP3 Download)
I first found out about this artist from the free "Classic Rock Presents The Blues" magazine album (issues 3 and 5).It's very basic- one very accomplished guitarist, a trusty old resonator guitar and a wooden foot-board.As the other reviewer says, every track is good, and it's one of those albums that sounds great from the very first listen.
I guarantee you won't be able to listen to it without your foot tapping.Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious, 18 Feb 2013
This review is from: Quartet (Paperback)
I haven't read the book, but I have seen the movie. It is set in a retirement home for opera singers.The plans for the usual concert to celebrate Verdi's birthday are interrupted by the arrival of Jean,an archetypal diva and ex-wife of one of the residents. Anyone of a certain age, who finds that certain functions in life aren't quite as efficient as they used to be (memory, hearing etc), but still has a zest for life, will identify with the humour of this story.

We all know that Joe can do Blues pretty well,as well as Blues Rock with Black Country Communion. Now he's shown us another string to his multi-talented bow: jazz/blues/funk just like John Mayall did back in 1972. I recommend you watch the DVD first, as it gives you a feel for the music as well as explaining the concept behind the album.Lock 5 massive musical egos in a studio for a few days, let them jam, and see what comes out.It could be a flop, but the chemistry between them makes it a massive success.As Joe puts it, it's a throwback to the 70's (Think Isaac Hayes/ Shaft ).
The band comprises Joe and Ron DeJesus on guitars,Renato Neto on keyboards,Mike Merritt on bass, and Tal Bergman on drums,who also produces the CD and DVD. The DVD also includes the Official Music video of the opening track.The DVD has a very amateur feel to it, which adds to it's appeal.
The C.D comprises 9 instrumental tracks, all between 6 and 10 minutes long.I recommend you listen to it on headphones to appreciate it in it's full multi-textural glory. The first two tracks come out all guns blazing,then the next track pulls the tempo right down,starting with an ethereal space-traveller mood,which develops into another jam.The title track gives everyone a chance to shine.It's the sort of track which could be indefinitely extended in a live gig.Track 5 starts reflectively before establishing a repetitive bass riff over which everyone gets a chance.This would be ideal to de-stress after a bad day at work. Track 6 (Animal/Work) is the drummer's spotlight (Animal=Muppet drummer),with some excellent guitar work from Joe.Track 7 can best be described as a guitar-duel between Joe and Ron. Track 8 is very Isaac Hayes influenced.After a roller-coaster ride we are brought back down to earth by the final track, which is wind-down music.I don't get why it's called New York Song,unless its New York in the middle of a power-cut. My only complaint is that track 9 stops after 6 minutes, with 4 minutes of silence,before resuming, with another 6 minutes of music Worth waiting for?- not really. Why do they do that?
Hopefully this will appeal to a younger audience who will then turn onto the blues.I can't wait for Joe's next offering- Joe Bonamassa does reggae? Worth the money? Absolutely, unless you're a blues purist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin, 8 Jan 2013
This review is from: Box of Blues (Audio CD)
If you are reading this, the chances are you are already familiar with Geoff's unique guitar skills, and his latest offering does not disappoint.Although it's a studio album, to me it has the feel of a live album.His fellow band-members are the usual crew, with the addition of Chris Wilson on harp and vocals.Of the 10 tracks, 7 are new ones including Further On Up The Road and a couple of Jimmy Reed classics. Unusually there are are no self-penned tracks.Three tracks get re-worked (In The Midnight Hour,Voodoo, and Walking Blues), sorry but the latter isn't a patch on the UK Souldiggers version. Favourite track for me is Muddy Waters' Long Distance Call ( 7 minutes 41 seconds). It's a million miles from Muddy's version (no pun intended) but shows Geoff's guitar and Chris's harp at their best.As the cover says "rhythm packed and star-studded".
