PAUL SAMSON P.S.... (Angel Air SJPCD220) (2006)

Paul Samson

Guitar legend Samson started recording this album in 2001 when he relocated to Norfolk. Some tracks had already been written and aired; 'Brand New Day' by the reformed Samson in 2000 and 'Do Right' with Metallic Blue in the late 90s, with bassist Ian Ellis.

With Samson vocalist Nicky Moore, drummer Billy Flemming and bass split between Paul, Ellis and John McCoy, this excellent album was left with McCoy to finish after Paul's untimely death in 2002.

With McCoy adding some rhythm guitar and co-production, it's been well worth the wait.

Musically excellent, 'Brand New Day' stands out, Moore's distinctive bluesy vocals making for a classic solid hard rock tune.

Sadly some parts are lost in the mix, the production not always standing up to the music, and the drum sound suffers the most.

But that said, not a bad performance, and tracks like 'It's Going Wrong' as heavy as anything Paul Samson ever recorded. And as good too.

Top marks for McCoy for getting this finished, some great musicians at the top of their metal game. Sadly one is no longer with us.
