At last,after 50 plus albums, Europe’s Blues Queen nails down a scorching live club performance with her top touring musicians, THE LONDON BLUES BAND.
This long overdue live recording complements perfectly Dana’s incredible output of fine studio albums.
This line-up of musicians has featured on Dana’s Mustique Festival CDs, but this is a testament to Dana and her merry men roaring through a vibrant club set. This is the real deal!
Of the 12 numbers, eight are written by Dana, testimony to the tribute paid to her by old friend Bob Dylan, who told her “I love your songwriting”.
This release shows why Dana and the Band have become “must have” fixtures at Festivals all over the world, from Bombay to Seoul and fromSingapore to Hell in Norway.
We live in an age of techno pasteurisation in recording music: backing tracks, key adjusters, tuning modules etc, all there to assist the weaker brethren in the music business. None of these aids are required here. Dana and the Band cut the mustard, with the very highest level of musicianship spiced up with a lot of fun to create this straight-ahead record of a fabulous gig from a great singer with a great band.
