When I was a teenager I had an electric guitar. I was never very good, but it wasn’t for lack of trying. Sometimes when I would be playing it, I would get really focused on what I was trying to do and all of a sudden….plop…a big ol’ dollop of drool would fall outta my face. That’s what it feels like listening to these two Bryan Lee live albums I got. I keep expecting to just let a puddle of drool come out somewhere in the middle of one of the guitar solos.
I’ve spent the past month or so with Bryan Lee’s live cds, Live and Dangerous and Live at the Absinthe Bar in the car cd player. Aside from being perfect music for the work commute, they are just terribly fun albums. With Bryan being on one of my favorite tracks on Kenny Wayne Shepherd’s Ten Days Out cd, I was really interested in checking out his music and then he came to town with Kenny on the Ten Days tour, and I knew I needed more.
If you wanna check out some nice electric delta blues and some performances that you can’t help but to turn up and roll the windows down to, check out these cds. Just don’t drool on your shirt.
