4.0 out of 5 stars It depends where you're itchin', 9 Nov 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Scratchin' on My Screen (Audio CD)
The no frills sound gives this album a clean sound that is rare these days, and it shows off the band's technical abilities really well, especially Paul Jones' harp playing which has sometimes taken a back seat. My only criticism of 'Scratchin' is that it's a little long, although as someone who has all their CDs that's not a problem to me! If you've never heard the Blues Band in acoustic mode then you'll learn loads from this recording; if you've never heard them at all, you'd want probably want to buy the double press of 'The Bootleg Album' with 'Ready' at the same time to provide you with a way in first. But don't be put off: this is a good CD and well worth buying not least for Paul's peachy rendition of 'Georgia on my Mind' and Dave Kelly's wonderful 'Sus Blues'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Live, acoustic Blues Band. You might have been there, 20 April 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Scratchin' on My Screen (Audio CD)
Scratchin' On My Screen was recorded live at venues around the UK and Germany and captures the feel and vibe of the band's opening acoustic set. Comments between band members are audible, as are the audience and help transport the listener to the concert itself. There is a feel, swing and authenticity to this disc which draws the listener in and begs an increase in volume to envelop completely. Highlights of the disc are the opening track, Mean Old Frisco which ploughs a path and Lonely Avenue which features Dave Kelly in inspired form. The feel, touch and dynamics of the songs on this CD are of major credit to the band and are what seperate them from others. If you have not heard the Blues Band in acoustic mode, this CD will astonish you. A must listen for all fans of acoustic music.

This review is from: Scratchin' On My Screen (MP3 Download)
Following the bold experiment with the form that was `Brassed Up', the Blues Band seem to have decided to take a more back to basics approach with this, their first release of the millennium. With a pleasingly stripped back sound they tackle some well worn blues songs and add a new sparkle to them. With everyone joining in with song selection and singing, you get a real sense of the camaraderie shared by this band, their basic good naturedness and most importantly the sheer pleasure they still get from playing this music. It may be a blues album, but it is one that always puts a smile on my face - it feels more like a pleasant evening out with a few good friends.
