Part of the generation that has given us artists like Robert Cray, Joe Louis Walker, Mem Shannon and Larry McCray, this man Larry Garner writes thought provoking songs that we today in 2009 can relate to. If you find you can't relate to the 'downhome-ness" of Robert Johnson then Larry Garner will definitely bring you up to date as he mentions issues that we all face in the 21st century. I would say he is an artist who is best seen live but for those unfortunates who can't then his CDs are a fine alternative. The title track hits home. Very true words that most should heed. The guitar work is great but very economical…Larry tastefully uses his guitar to embellish the song not the other way around. No song is just an excuse for a ten minute guitar solo. Watch out for Sonny Landreths phenomenal slide solo on the track "Rats & Roaches In My Kitchen", one of the best slide solos ever done in history! The song is one written by Blues legend Silas Hogan, a man who appears to have influenced Garner alot. Don't Run Talking" a song about idle gossip is so factual. i'm sure most of us have experienced what Larry sings about. Every track will educate you because Larry Garner is a poet of the Blues. You won't be dissapointed if you get this one.

Guilty Saints is not an album with a few guest tracks by the visiting artist, instead it is a real 'double artist' project. Larry & Neal worked together on the music, lyrics and production and the final result is a fusion of blues, Americana and roots, that crosses into new musical territories for both Neal Black and Larry Garner.

Larry Garner is one of the blues' great unknown treasures. His songs and vocals are witty, intelligent and sophisticated. He has a great sense of humor and always features a dynamite band to back up his searing guitar. Critics and fans alike love his top-shelf material. "A Driving Woman" jumpstarts the CD with Garner's hot electric guitar at the fore. He's got a high-maintenance woman driving him crazy. "Do Your Personal Thing" is a typical song, bopping along and spiced with Garner's personal observations on daily life. The Angels of Background Vocals add a great touch… It is another masterfully crafted collection of sophisticated modern blues songs…

Included in small setting and completely played live does the title of this CD lives up to its name completely. Two men who live and breathe the blues all their whole life and of which the German of this duo, Merwyk, that only three years really professional does. But also in that short time, he has already earned his spurs with 5 studio albums and some prestigious awards behind its name. Completely unplugged and without overdubs play the men here songs from their own back-catalogue for a company of dozens in a studio. Everything about this album exudes class and style. And though it's not earth-shattering, the combination of both gentlemen delivers a five quarter-long hot bath on for anyone who wants to come relax after a long day. For example, as you'll hear her music come on also beyond a channel if Arrow Jazz. The target audience of that drive will ' Upclose And Personal ' without reservation in her heart.

Well, I have had a while to listen to "once upon the blues" several times now and I am pleased to report that it is an absolute cracker (very good….).
I just love the lazy guitar intro to the first track "where blue turns to black" - lovely understated playing, probably one of my favourite tracks.
The second is about a pet hate of Larry as well as me - "slower traffic keep right". Wherever you are, on Highway, Motorway, Autostrada, Autobahn or Autoroute it seems to be the same the world over - slow traffic sitting in the fast/overtaking lane. Larry will have to change from right to left when he does this number in England!…..

It is impossible to discuss Larry Garner's history without mentioning the European connection. Although the bluesman is from Baton Rouge, LA, Europe is where he enjoyed his first taste of commercial acceptance. The singer/guitarist recorded for a British label (JSP Records) before he recorded for any American companies, and the late '90s and early '00s found him recording for the German Ruf label. This Ruf release documents a 2001 gig at a club in Germany, where Garner provides an inspired dose of electric Louisiana blues and often detours into Louisiana soul…..

This was supposed to be Garner's follow-up album to his breakthrough third album, You Need to Live a Little, released in 1994. Due to contract problems, however, it never saw an American release until 1999. Like its predecessor, Garner's brand of blues moves between Excello swamp blues and more soulful, contemporary styles with a strong songwriting sense ingrained in all of it…..

On his second JSP release, Garner dishes up a variety of blues, steeped in the post-war tradition but reflecting contemporary influences. He successfully reprises his funky "Shak Bully." "She Should've Been Back" is a soul blues, while "Love Her with a Feeling" is a step-by-step narrative a la Albert Collins…..

Although his songwriting slips a little here ("PMS" was an idea that should have never been executed), Standing Room Only confirms Larry Garner's position as a tough blues guitarist and dynamic performer. Despite a few weak cuts, there's still a number of very strong songs, and Garner's flair for gritty, swampy performances makes the album quite enjoyable — it just falls a little short of the high quality of his previous masterworks.
