Blue Odyssey Reviewed…..

My last solo release “Blue Odyssey” has recently been reviewed by Martin Leedham over at HIS REVIEW BLOG

Martin’s blog is a treasure store of insightful reviews of a host of classic albums from way back when up to the present day, and I’m happy and honoured to be in such good company. Below is a snippet from the review, but just click on the link to read the whole thing, and take some time to check out some of his other excellent reviews, too.

“….The most recent and ambitious of those releases is “Blue Odyssey”, an album which tells the story of his road trip across the southern states of America undertaken in early 2010. During the 75 minute opus Moore manages to contribute vocals, bass, electric, acoustic and slide guitars, keyboard, drums and mouth organ. Making it a true solo album in the real sense of the word. However, there is still room for some talented guests and friends to join in throughout the eighteen track affair which, although obviously predominantly blues based, manages to encompass many a style and mood.………………….“Blue Odyssey” is fundamentally a blues album from a highly talented musician that has a great love of old school blues music and musicians. However it covers many other styles of music and although steeped in delta blues feeling and lyrical imagery it is much more than just a blues album. Gospel, funk, rock, soul and even a bit of old time boogie woogie are all thrown in the mix at one point or another and help to make the musical journey for the listener as enjoyable as the actual physical journey was for Moore. The only negatives for me are the slight over use of sampled soundbites and a slight concern that the length of the album may lead to attention wandering issues for some listeners. They don’t, however, prevent this from being an excellent and highly recommended album. Moore’s lengthy career in rock and pop music is evident throughout and the clever use of comedy in some of the lyrics add to the all round good feel of the album. This is not your doom and gloom woe is me blues offering by any stretch of the imagination but a celebration of cultures brought together under the banner of a Blue Odyssey……..”

  3. Haha … yes, I’m quick at finding mentions of my name — although I mysteriously become Shelley Barnes in the middle of his review. I just shared the link with my Facebook friends.
