Having previously owned this gem on vinyl and having lost it years ago. it was an absolute delight to discover it still available on cd.Anyone who was interested in the pub music scene of the eighties should really give this a listen as it gives an excellent example of just how diverse good quality R&B can be.Diz and the Doormen not only utilise solid blues rythms to give this offering a sound foundation, there is ample usage of cajun, buckwheat xydeco and other southern state influences that, not only give it an irrestible hip swinging quality, but you would swear the swamp lands of Baton Rouge should be your spiritual home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bluecoat Man - Diz & The Doormen 16 Feb. 2006
By Rune Nordgard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The following is quoted from the GOLDMINE MAGAZINE - U.S.A. -1982:

Charles Reinhardt

Bluecoat Man - Diz & The Doormen - Ace Records

Do you like heavy duty New Orleans R & B? You like heavy duty Professor Longhair/Champion Jack Dupree style piano? Then ya gotta buy this album, that's all there is to it.

Diz's album is one of the finest New Orleans styled albums I have heard by anybody, regardless of vintage or period. The Doormen, supplemented by plenty of honkin' tenor saxes (Lee Allen, the greatest of them all pops up on about four tracks here) makes this sound like a Saturday afternoon at Cosimo's. Great sound, some really truly spirited performances here and a classic example of Diz's cool boogie woogie style on "Swanee River Jump" (my favourite track along with "You're drivin me crazy" and four or five others!) makes this album you cannot, under any circumstances, live one more moment without. Diz Watson, you're my new hero!!! ACE strikes again!

Album Features these noted and legendary musicians:

Lee Allen, Roger Lewis and Walter Kimble - Sax's (from Fats Domino Band)

Pete Thomas - Sax's

Don Weller - Sax's

Keiran O'Connor - Drums

Pete Scott - Bass

Ron Kavana - Guitar

Craig Mackie - Guitar

Andy Macdonald - Sax

Guest Performances from : Aubrey Bryan - Steel Pan. Kemis - Conga. Geraint Watkins - Bones. Charlie Hart - Accordion. Lance Eliington -Trombone.

Produced by Charlie Hart, Engineered by Vic Keary

Recorded at Chalk Farm Studios, London.

November 1981

5.0 out of 5 stars A CERTIFIED CLASSIC - NO BUTS, NO MAYBES! 8 April 2010
By Douglas McKinnon Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I bought this album soon after I moved to New Orleans in 1980 - it became an essential component of my living there for seven years, and has continued as a memento of that experience. Forget that the core band are British musicians, since their playing invests these vintage tunes with a vitality and intensity which has yet to be matched, either by the originals or subsequent cover recordings. Along with the authenticity vested by New Orleans natives Lee Allen and Roger Lewis, the piano of Diz Watson and particularly the drumming of Kieran O'Connor are exemplary. Regrettably, there's nothing in New Orleans today which exemplifies this degree of respect and musical expertise in honoring the 50's New Orleans R&B tradition.
