4.0 out of 5 stars Wilde about Dani, 5 Jan. 2009
This review is from: Heal My Blues (Audio CD)
Credit is due to Thomas Ruf. His RUF Record label in Germany has been quick to spot the current rise of top young British Blues acts that also includes Oli Brown and Joanne Shaw Taylor.
Brighton based Dani Wilde was a popular part of the 2008 Blues Caravan Tour that rode around Europe to great (and deserved) acclaim with Deborah Coleman and Candye Kane.

`Heal My Blues' showcases Dani's talents admirably - in particular capturing her tremendous enthusiasm for playing. This girl is no Ana Popovic on guitar but she does have a way with lyrics and most of all a great set of tonsils - put to stunning effect on "I'm Going Down". This would be a showstopper even sans backing musicians. "Bring Your Loving Home, "Heal My Blues" and "Testify" all really do `Testify' to Dani's enthusiasm and brother Will on Harmonica helps them all rock along to good effect.

The CD just misses out on 5 stars because it is something of an unpolished diamond - rather rough around edges that rely a little too heavily on tried and trusted rhythms and licks. Since this CD came out though Dani has learned a lot I'm sure from the likes of Candye, Deborah and top backing musicians like Denis Palatin and Laura Chavez. I prescribe "Heal My Blues" for anyone wanting good, rocking, blues from the heart and also recommend putting a note in your diary for Dani's follow up - it should be an absolute blinder!
