Live and full of some fantastic music Dana Gillespie,fifty albums to her name before this live set recorded in Mr Kyps in Poole ,Dorset. Her band includes Dino Baptiste (pleyed with John Lee Hooker), Britains best blues guitarist in thirty years Matt Schofield, plus his drummer Evan Jenkins together with others make up the London Blues Band,and what a band. Matt now being a major artist in his own right.This is a set right out of the top drawer od blues and soul.Dana has simply an incredible voice and should not be missed if you like quality, live her delivery and the excellence of her band make this set an absolute joy and one you just would love to have been at.New songs,old songs,songs from previous albums but everyone a winning combination of great artist and equally brilliant band.All I can say is just don't pass on what is an absolute cracker of a live set buy one of the best in the business.She actually headlines the Mustique Blues Festival most years,now there's one festival that would be nice to be at.UNMISSABLE BLUES & BOOGIE.
....and she can sing, first saw Dana in a movie where her body form was used to great effect. So , I was stunned to hear her voice was even better on the Paul Jones show with a great blues band... She ain't stopped ever since. Great backing bands all down the years and this one is no different. Recorded in Dorset in 2006 the set just doesn't let up from the off! Dana wrote all but two of the songs and they all have real quality with a selection of raunchy lyrics.The closer is one of her classics , " A Lot Of What You Got ".... and she's got the lot !
