DAVEY PATTISON Mississippi Nights/Pictures Angel Air SJPCD263 (2008)
First UK/European release of these two solo albums from the current Robin Trower and former Gamma vocalist Davey Pattison.
They were first released back in 1999 and 2003, with many of Pattison's US based musician friends helping out. Both albums are blues based with plenty of tasty slide playing coupled with some songs like 'Daydreaming' and 'Mississippi Nights' sounding not unlike Jackson Browne's solo work.
Pattison also tips a nod to his influences throughout the songs none more so than on 'John Lee Jimmy Reed and Mississippi Fred', which cane be heard on the 'Pictures' album.
Davey Pattison has a lovely, rich vocal style that can easily switch between blues based numbers through to more laid back west coast AOR numbers. Definitely of interest to blues and Jackson Browne fans plus of course Pat Travers many fans. Informative sleeve notes make for a great package overall.
