Awesome 3rd studio disc by this excellent blues/rock band from Iowa featuring the amazing Father/Son duo of BillyLee & Bryce Janey on guitars. Includes 11 tracks of bad-ass, hard-hitting, powerful, blues-based heavy guitar rock mojo that lands down solid between a rock and a blues place. Like Father, like Son, both BillyLee & Bryce Janey dig deep on their six string axes and totally kick our asses on this way-kool, blues-based, heavy guitar boogie train…

Rendezvous With the Blues marks another step in the normalization of Melvin Taylor. With Lucky Peterson on keyboards, Taylor is much more the featured lead guitarist in a straight-band context that too often finds him fighting for room to move in the full arrangements. He takes a jazzy lead on the opening "Coming Home Baby," but that runs counter to the measured, mid-tempo groove that dominates the first three tracks and seems like a move to court the contemporary rock-blues audience. So does some of the material – no originals, with ZZ Top, Stephen Stills, and Carlos Santana's tribute to John Lee Hooker in the songwriter credits on one side and Charles Singleton and Prince for contemporary black funk/rock relevance on the other. Horns kick in to punctuate the slinky, clavinet-anchored funk on "I'm the Man Down There," but Taylor's solo gets cluttered up by a duel with Peterson (on guitar here). Taylor is better-served when he escapes the rock beat straitjacket on "Tribute to John Lee Hooker" – the Latin-tinged rhythms give his guitar more freedom to float and sting.
