Every decade, a few albums come along
that defy all time or stylistic precepts. Some examples,
among others, might be The Beatles "Sgt. Pepper" in the
sixties; or Stevie Wonder's "Songs in the Key of Life" in
the seventies. What causes these old records to be so highly
revered ? Is it the sound quality?...probably not... Is it
the singing?...maybe...Is it the production?...definitely
a factor...but...is it the great songs?...most definitely!
As the next few months unfold, B.B. Dogg's
"One Blue Shoe" will be released & is destined to be one of those albums. From "Shaky Puddin"
(a timeless tribute to a local rock-n-roll goddess) to the
more pensive and brooding cuts "One Blue Shoe" and "What
Are You Still Doin' Here", all of this remarkable music
seems to resonate with music lovers of all ages. Another
cut that stands out is "Cab Driver" featuring the unique "moe-moe-moe"
Although you won't actually see the "blue
shoe guitars" onstage, the show is reportedly "exciting
and unusual" to say the least, featuring dance
routines developed by Rupert Snap Dogg.
Syndicated talk show host & veteran blues player Wyan
said: "This is the best example of disenchanted old
rockers recording a blues album I've heard in years!".
B.B Dogg ...the band...is currently
touring blues bars in South Florida to rave reviews.
