5.0 out of 5 stars A milestone in the evolution of music, 8 Jun 2010
This review is from: Shake A Bone (Audio CD)
There have been the (very) occasional moments in my music appreciation life, when a track or album has been of such note that, for me, it has marked the genius that is bestowed on the very few. For example, I still have fond memories of a lunchtime stroll down Victoria Street in London around 1967 time when I first heard Canned Heat's 'On The Road Again' shouting at me from the open door of a record shop now long gone. I remember entering and asking the young female assistant what the incredible sound was coming from the (now primitive) speakers. If anything she was more excited about it than I was. "I've been waiting for someone to ask" she said as she thrust a copy into my hand. "It's incredible - please play it as much as you can!" I was more than happy to pay the few old shillings for a record that kick started many a 60s party and still has a pride of place in my collection. Similarly, the hairs on the back of my neck were tingling the moment I heard J.J. Cale's great album 'Travel-log', one of the very few albums without a bum track. Well, here we have another one. This album 'Shake A Bone' from Son of Dave is so different from anything else around that, for me, it points to a completely new direction in the history of both music and, particularly, the blues. Such an innovative sound; the track 'Broke-down Lincoln' really is a touch of genius in the way that it justs forces its way under your skin. More like this young man, and you will have a following the likes of which you could never have imagined in any of your incarnations!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album, 2 May 2011
This review is from: Shake A Bone (Audio CD)
I love this guy and think this is his best album so far. It is just perfect for a full-volume thrash home in the car after a bad day at work and certainly puts a smile back on my face. "Broke-down Lincoln" is a classic.

This review is from: Shake A Bone (Audio CD)
Recently purchased this album and once again wasn't disappointed. For me, it isn't as good as O3, but still a great effort from the one-man music machine. This album definitely has more of a 'Blues' feel to it than Son of Dave's previous work. The album becomes a little more 'upbeat' later on, but unfortunately it doesn't ever seem to scale the dizzy heights of O3. Those of you who are new to Son of Dave's music, I would strongly recommend you give O3 a listen to hear his best work. I would describe his sound as a one off - imagaine Blues meets Yellow (who did "The Race") with some beatboxing thrown in and you won't be far off. Great to listen to, but definitely MUCH better to see live...
