EAMONN McCORMACK Kindred Spirits True Talent (2008)

Eamonn McCormack

Blues fans won't be disappointed with this minor gem of a release. To put this album into perspective: in the eighties and nineties Irish blues guitarist Eamonn McMormack gigged around the blues clubs and venues of Europe. As McCormack says in the sleeves notes, this CD is a collection of studio tracks he recorded years ago during different stints in the studio while he was on tour under the name 'Samuel Eddy.'

Along the way McCormack picked up a fan by the name of Rory Gallagher. The pair ended up working on a track together called 'Falsely Accused' which was Gallagher's final session and is included on this album. The late great Gallagher is on fine form as the late Dutch musician Herman Brood who plays piano on 'The Grove.' Fellow Dutch man Jan Akkerman adds guitars to 'Mystica' which just oozes charm and Keith Donald adds a touch of class with the soprano Sax on 'Stranger On The Run.'

'Kindred Sprits' is 14 tracks of blues rock heaven. McCormack is on fine form as a vocalist and guitar virtuoso. Information on this release is obtainable at
