1981's Lucky For Some saw veteran British act Climax Blues Band fully enjoying their US successes, recording the album in Los Angeles' Sound City Studios and living the lives of full fledged rock stars. Once again leaving their blues roots far behind them, Lucky For Some is a slick, upbeat affair, packed with tight rock songs, catchy pop, and groove laden funk. Nicely remastered by the folks at Repertoire Records, Lucky For Some can once again be enjoyed on CD as the melodic, fun album it is.

The sound on the CD is superb - crystal clear and affording the highest homage to a bunch of musicians at their best. Saxophone, drums, keyboards, harmonizing vocals - it's all there. As the title of the album indicates, these guys, Climax Blues Band, were for Real on this album and they delivered. It's a pity there are only eight songs and total playing time is under 40 minutes but that's enough time to be in heaven before staying above the clouds by hitting the repeat button.

Heavy on the kind of blues-rock favored by Humble Pie, this is a live outing in front of a too-loud New York audience. Sax player Colin Cooper helps to separate these English midland lads from the heads-down no-nonsense boogie competition, although the emphasis is squarely on guitarist Peter Haycock. His solo electric slide showcase "Country Hat" is a marvel. The band's pop leanings featured so strongly on their studio recordings come through in "I Am Constant." It's a solid outing, and much meatier than subsequent offerings. -Mark Allan

This is a Hot full on Rocking Blues Album! Harmonica & Guitar driven with a fantastic rhythm section that never disappoints. This is CD number four for Thirsty Perch and their best effort to date. Professional musicians with a propietary sound! The Thirsty Perch Blues Band churns out the blues in its own, inimitable way. As a result, the award-winning Grand Rapids fivesome has shared stages with the likes of Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Ana Popovic and Joanne Shaw Taylor, sparked a regional buzz with four albums released since 2009, and even earned attention overseas…

By the time of 1971's Tightly Knit, the group had settled into a very comfortable groove and suddenly didn't seem to be trying so hard, instead letting the music speak for itself. This newfound confidence was also mirrored in the fact that eight of the ten tunes aboard were group-penned originals. While they showed some versatility on tunes like "Little Link" and "Shoot Her If She Runs" (both exhibiting a strong country rock flavor), they still managed to sound like no one else but the Climax Blues Band on such familiar warhorses as "Spoonful" and Robert Johnson's "Come on in My Kitchen."

Arguably one of the best albums of Climax Blues Band’s later FM rock career, ‘Drastic Steps’ is an overlooked gem and a prime example of being in the right place at the wrong time. The album marked the band’s official recording comeback after a 5 year break and armed with a platoon of studio effects – from monster synth drums to all manner of electronics – Climax cut the kind of album that they had been searching for since the mid 70’s.

As a long-time fan of Climax Blues Band, I have been waiting for this one for a while, now. A previous CD release of 'Sense of Direction' (on Plum Records) had a serious flaw in my favorite song, in addition to so-so sound. Really, how can you lose about 20 seconds of music in the middle of a song and not notice it? This new Fuel Records release at least corrects that deficiency. 'Amerita/Sense of Direction' has been restored to its full 6:08 length, the sound of the album as a whole has been cleaned up, and three bonus tracks have been added.
