DEL BROMHAM ‘Devil's Highway’ |
(Trigger Happy Music THM040204)(2004)
This singer/guitarist has produced an excellent blues album, ranging from
acoustic to full electric blues. The vocals suit the music, and the guitar
features some great slide. Solo notes burst out from the rhythm at just the
right moments, not wanting to over do as many try to do.
The music doesn’t always flow smoothly, and the bluegrass touch on ‘That’s Alright Mama’ may
be welcome and correct, doesn’t fit it with the feeling for the whole album.
Still, tracks like ‘Train’ and ‘Whisky, Wine And Beer’ do add some nice
guitar touches. It’s not an album you’d sit down and listen to
intentionally, but very soothing and enjoyable if you’re at the computer or
