“DEEP ROOTED AND FELT”

SOME PEOPLE CALL THIS GUY I FOUND IS DEFINED AS “THE POET OF THE BLUES”, WITH HIS LATEST PROJECT CALLED “A LUCKY MAN” ROBERT BURTON HUBELE IS MORE THAN THIS. ROBERT HAS A TWIST OF COUNTRY, JAZZ, BLUES ROCK AND FOLK ALL WRAPPED INTO ONE AND WITH THE FIRST CUT ON THIS ALBUM ENTITLED “LUCKY MAN” ROBERT BRINGS IN ELEMENTS OF DEEP SEEDED BLUES AND THE SONG REALLY MAKES ONE FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE ARRIVED IN A NIGHT CLUB. THE SONG IS A LOW AND GRINDY SONG THAT FEATURES BRAD STECKEL. THE SONG HAS A GOOD FEEL TO IT AND ROBERTS VOICE HAS THE RASPY FEEL THAT HAS GRAINS OF BLUES ALL THE WAY THROUGH. “I’D BE A FOOL” THE NEXT SONG ON THIS AMAZING AND ENTERTAINING ALBUM HAS A OUT OF THE 60’S SONG BOOK FEEL TO IT AND SHOWS ROBERTS ABILITY TO BLEND IN HIS MUSICAL DIVERSITY. “NO TIME” THIS SONG HAS A SHAKING KIND OF FEEL TO IT AND BRINGS IN THE UMPH OF THE ALBUM AND ROBERTS VOCALS ARE RASPY, IN A BOB DYLAN KIND OF WAY. THE SONG AND ROBERTS WRITING ABILTY ARE TRANSPARENT ON THIS SONG AND THROUGHOUT THIS AMAZING ALBUM. THE NEXT SONG CALLED “HURT SO BAD” ANOTHER SONG THAT BRINGS IN THE BLUES ALONG WITH THAT 60’S FEEL TO IT AND THE SONG IS CONTAGIOUS AND ONE CAN REALLY NOTICE ROBERTS ECLECTIC ABILTIES TO CROSS PATHS WITH COUNTRY AND FOLK AND JUST PLAIN GREAT MUSIC. “KING COUNTY ROAD” HAS A SOUND THAT HAS BACKUP SINGING INVOLVED AND ROBERT USHERS IN HIS SOUND THAT IS IN MY EARS VERY REMINCENT OF EARLY BOB DYLAN RECORDS. “HOW DEEP IS YOUR LOVE” ROBERT BRINGS IN HIS ELEMENTS OF BLUES AND THE SPOKEN WORD THROUGHOUT THIS SONG AND ONCE AGAIN SHOWS HIS DIVERSITY AND TOTAL MUSICALITY. “ON THE WATER” ANOTHER SONG THAT HAS A COUNTRY POP FLARE TO IT AND AT THE SAME TIME HAS A FOLK SOUND THAT IS QUITE GOOD AND ENJOYABLE. “KING OF ROMANCE” HAS A SOUND THAT I CAN’T REALLY PLACE A SOUND ON, HOWEVER IT REMAINS WITH ROBERTS SOUND OF HIS “POET OF THE BLUES”. AS I LISTENED I NOTICED THIS IS THE KIND OF MUSIC ALBUM THAT HAS TO BE PLAYED IN A ENVIROMENT WHERE IT’S JUST YOU AND THE MUSIC. ROBERTS LYRICS ARE DEEP AND HAVE SUBSTANCE AND TRUE FELT MEANINGS AND THIS COMES ACROSS AS I LISTENED. “SHE LOVES ME MORE” ANOTHER SONG THAT SHARES THAT FOLK SOUND THAT ALLOWS YOU TO SEE AND FEEL THAT WONDERFUL WRITER OF MUSIC THAT ROBERT IS. THIS ALBUM THROUGHOUT REFLECTS WHO ROBERT IS. THIS ALBUM CONTENT REFLECT THIS. ROBERT IS A TRUE SINGER/SONGWRITER THAT PROJECTS THIS IN HIS ENTIRE SONG CATALOG. “LOVERS AT TWILIGHT” THE BLUES COME INTO THE SCENE AND ARRIVE WITH THIS SONG AND ONCE AGAIN PROJECTS HIS DEEP IMPACTFUL & THOUGHFUL LYRICS THAT ARRIVE FROM THE HEART. “MONEY CAN’T BUY” ROBERT HAS A SIGNATURE ON EVERY SONG AND ARE FULLY CRAFTED AND BUILT BY ROBERT AND HIS CONSISTENT ABILITY TO PAINT A PICTURE WITHIN HIS SONGS.. “ALBERTA” IS ANOTHER FINE EXAMPLE OF ROBERT ONCE AGAIN SHOWING HIS FOLK ROOTS AND SINGING YOUR HEART INTO HIS WORLD OF POETRY SET TO BEAUTIFUL LYRICS AND SURROUNDED BY MUSIC THAT TOUCHES YOU MAGICALLY. ALL IN ALL THIS ALBUM IS A VERY GOOD ALBUM AND AS I LISTENED I FELT THAT ROBERT BURTON HUBELE HAS CONVINCING MUSIC THAT TAKES SAMPLINGS OF ALL MUSIC GENRES AND COUPLED WITH ROBERTS AMAZING LYRICS AND HIS BLUESY VOCALS BRING IN YOU INTO HIS WORLD IN WHICH REMAIN IN YOUR HEART. ROBERT IS A TRUE SINGER/SONGWRITER AND HAS WHAT I CALL PURITY AND HONEST MUSIC AND ROBERT HAS ALL THESE INGREDIENTS WRAPPED UP TOGETHER AND PRESENTS A FINE OUTCOME. I THANK ROBERT FOR HIS FRIENDSHIP AND HIS GIFTED CONTRIBUTION TO THE MUSIC WORLD AND ANXOIUS TO HEAR WHAT’S NEXT FOR HIM.

“DELIVERING WITHIN THE HANDS OF TIME”

51 YEARS LATER AND 21 ALBUMS AND VARIOUS PERSONEL CHANGES IN THE BAND AND SOME WHO SAID THEY “COULDN’T GET IT RIGHT” THE CLIMAX BLUES BAND, ARRIVE WITH BRAND NEW PROJECT CALLED “HANDS OF TIME” AND WELL WORTH THE WAIT. THE ALBUM IS PHENOMENALLY GREAT, I HAVE BEEN A HUGE LONG TIME FAN OF THE GROUP. I ACTUALLY PLAYED THE SONG “COULDN’T GET IT RIGHT” ON MY RADIO SHOW BACK IN THE DAY. WHAT I RECALL MOST OF THE BAND THEIR IMMORTAL SONG CALLED “I LOVE YOU” FROM 1980 AND FROM THAT MOMENT ON I WAS A FAN. THIS CEMENTED MY FEELINGS AND FOLLOWING THE BAND. THE BAND FORMED BACK IN 1969 AND ORIGINALLY CALLED CLIMAX CHICAGO BLUES BAND.

FORMED BY NOW DECEASED AND FOUNDING MEMBER COLIN COOPER, WHO SADLY PASSED AWAY IN 2008, HOWEVER HE HAS BEEN QUOTED TO HAVE SAID THAT HE WANTED THE BAND TO GO ON. ARRIVING IN 2019 THE BAND HAS GONE ON, AND WITH THE ALBUM CALLED “HANDS OF TIME”. THE ALBUM STARTS OFF WITH A SONG CALLED “AIN’T THAT A KICK IN THE HEAD” AND WHAT A TREMENDOUS SONG. THE SAXOPHONE IS A DOMINENT INGREDIENT ON MANY OF THE SONGS ON THE ALBUM, AND AT FIRST LISTEN I HEARD A LOT OF JAZZY RIFFS,BUT AS LISTENED MORE INTENTLY IT BECAME MORE FOCUSSSED ON THAT BLUESY ROCK SOUND THAT HAS A SOUND OF THE NOT SO DISTANT CLIMAX BLUES BAND OF THE 70’S. THE VOCALS OF GRAHAM DEE THE SONG COMES ALIVE WITH THE FIREWORKS OF THE BAND AND EXPLODES IN YOUR EARS AND HAS A REAL FEEL TO IT WITH THE EVE RPRESENT SAX OF CHRIS ALDRIDGE. THE NEXT SONG CALLED “STRAIGHT DOWN THE LINE” KICKS THIS ALBUM INTO THE NEXT LEVEL AND THE SONG IS STRONG AND ONCE AGAIN SAX IS A DOMINANT FACTOR AND THE SONG REALLY HAS A BOLD FEEL TO IT & I LOVED IT. WITH THIS SONG GANING MOMENTUM, THE NEXT SONG ARRIVES CALLED WHAT’S YOUR NAME AND BRINGS DOWN THE TEMPO A LITTLE, A SLOWER BALLAD THAT HAS A REAL BLUES FEEL AND WITH GRAHAM DEE AND HIS VOCALS ARE CLEAR AND PRESENT AND REALLY ENOYED THE SONG THAT MAKES YOU FEEL ALIVE. AS MY LISTENING WENT ON THE NEXT TRACK STARTED AND WOW!!! HOLY SHIT!! WHAT A GREAT SONG HEARING THE OPENING RIFFS A SONG CALLED “FLOOD OF EMOTION” AND REALLY GRIPS ONTO YOUR HEART AND CLINCHES WITH THE MIGHTY POWER OF THE TRUE BAND THAT IS THE CLIMAX BLUES BAND. I LOVE THE SONG AND WHAT A TRULY LOVELY MESSAGE THAT THE BAND DEFINES THROUGH THEIR SUPERIOR TALENTS. THE NEXT SONG CALLED “TOP OF THE WORLD” A SONG THAT BRINGS IN THE REMBERANCE FACTOR OF THE OLDIES AND SONGS THAT TAKES YOUR MUSIC PART OF THE BRAIN TO THE PAST WITH A LITTLE BIT OF SOUL AND A LITTLE JOHNNY B. GOOD. THE NEXT TRACK CALLED “MY MUSIC” ANOTHER SONG THAT SLOWS THE TEMPO DOWN AND BRINGS IN THE SUPERB VOCAL ARRANGEMENTS OF GRAHAM DEE AND THE SONG BRINGS IN THE FULL MONTY WITH THE ARMY OF SAX AND THE BAND THAT TAKES YOU ON A RIDE THROUGH WANTS & WISHES BUT REMIANS CONSTANT SUBJECT OF “MY MUSIC” THE SOUND IS OUTSTANDING AND HAS A TOTAL SOUND THAT IS UNMATCHED TO ANYTHING I HAVEN’T HEARD IN A WHILE. THE NEXT SONG BRINGS IN THE ELEMENTS OF BLUES AND HAS AN ALMOST PROGRESSIVE SOUND TO IT AND HAS SMOOTH SOUNDING VOCALS AND THE SAX REALLY ASSISTS WITH TELLING THE STORY ON THIS SONG, AND IS REALLY A GREAT SONG. THE NEXT TRACK ON THIS MIRACULOUS ALBUM IS CALLED “SIMPLE SONG” AND THAT’S ABOUT WHAT IT IS WITH ALL THE LA LAS AND OOH AHHS & DOOO DOOOO’S,  THE BAND KEEPS IT SIMPLE BUT GIVES YOU A LITTLE SAMPLE OF SIMPLENESS AND HOW THOSE SONGS SEEM TO BE EASY TO SING. THE NEXT SONG A INTRICATE AND DETAILED SONG THAT HAS BLUES RIFFS AND PICKS A SOUND THAT IS NARRATED THROUGH INCLUDED WITH SOUND EFFECTS AND ALL. THE BLUES IS APPARENTLY WOVEN WITHIN THIS WONDERFUL BAND AND REMAINS SINCE INCEPTION OF THE BAND. IT’S REALLY HARD NOT TO MISS THE SAX ON THIS ONE, THEY ARE A VERY BIG PART OF THIS SONG BUT AGAIN ASSIST WITH THEIR MUSICAL STORY ON THIS SONG. IF THERE IS EVER A SONG TO DEFINE THIS BAND THIS WOULD BE IT, THE SONG IS CALLED “HANDS OF TIME” AND THE SONG IS AMAZING AND AWESOME AND THE BAND SHOWCASE THEIR TRUE TALENTS AND TAKE LEND FROM THEIR TRUE ROOTS AS A BLUES, JAZZY ROCK  MUSIC AND COME THROUGH WITH FLYING COLORS OF FIREWORKS ON THIS REMARKABLE SONG, AND IS MY PERSONAL FAVORITE ON THE ALBUM. THE NEXT TRACK CALLED “FAITH” THE BAND SHARES A LITTLE SOUND FROM IT’S ‘COULDN’T GET IT RIGHT” DAYS BUT BRINGS CURRENT AND FRESHNESS TO IT AND THE SONG KEEPS THE ECECTIC SOUNDS REVIVED. THE NEXT SONG CALLED “HARD LUCK”  THE BAND DRIVES THEIR SOUND IN WITH THIS SONG WHERE THE WHOL BAND IS INVOLVED AND FEEL THAT ALIVENESS KICK INTO GEAR AGAIN AND HAS A BLUES, FUNK JAZZ STRUCTURE TO IT, HOWEVER HAS AN EDGE OF ROCK TO IT THAT KEEPS THE ACCELERATOR PUSHED TO THE FLOOR. THE SONG CALLED “WRONG TIME” IS ANOTHER FINE EXAMPLE OF THE WHY’S AND HOWS I FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS TRULY TALENTED AND AMAZING SOUNDING BAND CALLED THE CLIMAX BLUES BAND, THE SONG ONCE AGAIN BRINGS ALIVE THE ENTIRE BANDS TALENTS AND SHOWCASES ALL OF THEM TOGETHER TO MAKE A GREAT SONG THAT HAS TOTAL MUISCALITY TO IT. THE LAST SONG ON THIS TRULY AMAZING AND TRULY HEART FELT ALBUM IS CALLED “GETTING THERE” WHICH FEATURES THE LATE COLIN COOPER AND SHOWS THAT THE BAND IS HEADING TOWARDS THE FUTURE AT A FAST PACE ANS WILL REAP THE AWARDS THAT AWAIT THEM ON THEIR BRIDGE OF LIFE COLIN COOPER HASN’T LOST HIS ABILITIES TO TURN OUT A SOLID SONG AND FROM A BAND THAT SOME SAY “COULD’NT GET IT RIGHT” AND AFTER 51 YEARS OF SOLID MUSIC THAT I WILL CONTINUE TO FOLLOW AND KEEP UP WITH. AS A MUSIC REVIEWER THIS ALBUM IS A TRULY BEAUTIFUL PIECE OF MUISC AND “I LOVE YOU” AND THANKS FOR THE YEARS OF TRULY WONDERFUL MUSIC. MANY THANKS TO THE BAND ROY, GRAHAM, NEIL, CHRIS, GEORGE, LES AND TO COLIN COOPER FOR HAVING THE DREAM AND SHARING IT WITH THE WORLD. MANY THANKS GOING OUT TO MR. ALYN SMITH FOR HIS TREMEDOUS ASSISTANCE, IF NOT FOR HIM THIS REVIEW WOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED.

“FEEL THE MUSIC”

AFTER LISTENING TO THE AMAZING AND TRUE COUNTRY TALENT MR. FERRELL NOTTINGHAM, I WAS TOTALLY & HONESTLY BLOWN AWAY BY HIS TRUE TALENT. THE ALBUM IS CALLED “KEEPIN’ IT COUNTRY” AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT FERRELL DOES. THE ALBUM STARTS OUT WITH A SONG CALLED “LIFE WITHOUT YOU HERE” AND THE SONG IS TRULY AN AMAZING PIECE OF TRUE COUNTRY MUSIC.

AFTER SPEAKING WITH FERRELL REGARDING HIS MUSIC I LEARNED HOW HE HAS A TRUE PASSION FOR MUSIC, BUT ALSO A PASSION TO BE A FATHER TO HIS CHILDREN, INCLUDING THE NURTURING OF HIS DAUGHTER MARLENE AND HER MUSIC CAREEER. APPARENTLY TRUE TALENT RUNS IN THE FAMILY. MARLENE IN HER OWN RIGHTS HAS A TRUE PASSION FOR MUSIC AS WELL, INSPIRED BY OLDER COUNTRY, LEGENDS SUCH AS LORETTA LYNN, WHERE SHE DOES AN INCREDIBLE VERSION OF “COAL MINERS DAUGHTER”.

GETTING BACK TO FERRELL AND HIS ALBUM THE NEXT TRACK CALLED “IT’S NO MYSTERY” FERRELL SLOWS THE TEMPO DOWN AND HAS A TRUE SENSE OF AN AWESOME LOVE SONG AND HIS VOCALS ARE AMAZING AND HIS LYRICS ARE SO POSITIVE AND NATURAL AND I FELL IN LOVE WITH HIS SOUND AFTER LISTENING TO JUST TWO OF THE SONGS ON THIS WONDERFUL & AMAZING AN LOVE FELT MUSIC ALBUM.

THE NEXT SONG IS WHAT REALLY SOLD ME ON FERRELL AND HIS MUSIC, THE SONG IS  CALLED “I LOVE YOU MORE THAN YESTERDAY” AND HAS AN AMAZING SOUND THAT ECHOES TRUE MUSIC FROM THE 70’S WHERE EVERY SONG TOLD A STORY, AND FERRELL HAS SUCH A NATURAL & SMOOTH SOUNDING VOICE. THE MUSICALITY IS ABOVE THE NORM. “GAMES WE PLAYED” ANOTHER LOVE BALLAD THAT IS A TRUE TESTIMENT OF WHO FERRELL IS AS A SINGER & A SONGWRITER AND TO BE HONEST I DON’T KNOW WHY FERRELL HASN’T BEEN SPOTTED TO BE ON THE RADIO. PURE, TRUE & HONEST TALENT, FERRELL NOTTINGHAM.

WITH THIS BEING SAID THE NEXT SONG REALLY STRUNG A CHORD WITH ME, SINCE THIS SONG SPOKE TO ME FOR SOME REAL OBVIOUS REASONS. THE SONG IS CALLED “I’LL LOVE YOU FOREVER” AND WHAT MY LIFE IS ALL ABOUT. THAT IS THE CONNECTION THAT FERRELL HAS BETWEEN HIS SONGWRITING AND HIS ABILITY TO RELATE AND MAKE IT SEEM SO REAL AND FEEL THE EMOTIONAL VALUE HE BRINGS.

“IN LOVE THIS WAY” ANOTHER AMAZING SONG THAT FERRELL HAS THAT JUST A REAL NATURAL FEEL TO RELATE TO WHAT WE ALL GO THROUGH AND HIS SOUND IS A PURE JOY TO HEAR AND LISTEN TO. I FOUND MY MIND WANDERING BACK TO WHERE MUSIC HAD MEANING, SUBSTANCE. WHERE IT WAS REAL, TEXTURED WITH LOVE AND EMOTION, WHERE FERRELL PROJECTS THIS IN ALL OF HIS MUSIC CATALOG. THE NEXT SONG CALLED “HE’S STILL LIVING” ANOTHER TRULY INSPIRATIONAL SONG THAT REALLY SPEAKS VOLUMES, AND SHOWS THE KIND OF MAN FERRELL IS, A TRUE INSPIRATIONAL SINGER AND ALLOWS HIS FAITH TO BE HEARD THROUGH BEAUTIFUL LYRICS LIKE THIS. ” GO CLIMB IN THE SHOWER ” A FASTER PACED SONG THAT ALLOWS YOU TO HEAR THE COUNTRY STYLIN’ THAT FERRELL BRINGS IN AND THE HOT SHOT PICKING THROUGHOUT THE SONG AND THE TRUE COUNTRY MUSIC FEEL TO IT, AND HAS A HINT OF BLUEGRASS THAT IS TUCKED WITHIN THE SONG, AND GIVES IT A LITTLE ATTITUDE.

“YOUR’E MY EVERYTHING” A SONG THAT I FELT WAS STRAIGHT OUT OF THE PAGES OF A GEORGE STRAIT SONGBOOK, BUT FERRELL BRINGS HIS FLAVOR AND HIS PURELY DEVOTED SOUND TO IT AND REFLECTS HIS EMOTIONAL VULNERABILITIES THROUGHOUT THE SONG AND I LOVED IT.  “BELIEVE IN ANGELS” WHAT CAN I SAY, WOW!! THE SONG SHOWS AND HAS A MAGICAL AND HEARTFELT WAVE THROUGH IT, AND IN MY OPINION IS A TOTAL “BLOW ME OUT OF THE WATER” SONG, AND FERRELL & HIS DEEP, RICH AND TOTALLY CLEAR AND MUSICALITY REALLY SHINE THROUGH ON THIS ONE, AND THIS IS PROBABLY MY FAVORITE. THIS SONG IS  WONDERFUL & TOTALLY TRULY AN AMAZING WORK OF MUSIC ART AT IT’S FINEST.  “MAKIN’ HAY” A SONG THAT GETS THE BEAT ROLLING AND FERRELL KEEPS THE BEAT WITH HIS STORY TELLING PICKS AND THOUGHFUL LYRICS THAT HAVE A STORY AND HAS TOTAL BELIEVABILITY TO IT.

THE LAST SONG ON THIS AMAZING WORK OF MUSIC ART FROM AN TRULY AMAZING MUSICIAN, MUSIC ARTIST FERRELL NOTTINGHAM IS CALLED “I  JUST CAN’T SAY GOODBYE” WHERE FERRELL, KEEPS THAT REAL SOUND GOING AND IS A TRUE TESTIMENT OF WHO FERRELL NOTTINGHAM IS AS A SINGER AND AS A PERSON. THROUGH HIS BEAUTIFULLY CRAFTED MUSIC THERE’S CLARITY AND A TRUE VISUAL PRESENTATION THAT PRESENTS ALL HIS BODY OF WORK AND DELIVERS TO ALL THAT HAVE EARS. THE ALBUM IS THE REAL DEAL. THE TRUE DEFFINITION OF WHAT MUSIC IS ALL ABOUT, AND I AM TRULY HONORED & TRULY BLESSED TO WRITE THIS REVIEW ON SUCH A PURE AND SPIRITUAL AND EMOTIONAL FELT MUSIC ALBUM CALLED “KEEPIN’ IT COUNTRY” BY A REAL AND PURE TALENTED INDIVIDUAL NAMED FERRELL NOTTINGHAM. I LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING MORE FROM FERRELL IN THE FUTURE AND IN MY OPINION SHOULD BE HEARING HIS MUSIC ON THE RADIO. THANK YOU FERRELL FOR YOUR KINDNESS AND FRIENDSHIP AND YOU ARE ONE OF THE REASONS I LOVE DOING WHAT I DO, YOUR MUSIC & LIFE STORY IS A TRUE INSPIRATION.

“HEART FULL OF REALITY”

“AS THE SNOW FLIES ON A COLD AND GRAY CHICAGO MORNING A POOR LITTLE BABY CHILD IS BORN IN THE GHETTO AND HIS MAMA CRIES” PART OF THIS AMAZING SONG RESIGNATES IN MY EARS.  AS MANY OF YOU KNOW I AM A REAL SUCKER FOR LOVE BALLADS AND REAL TRUE SONGWRITERS. I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A FAN OF SONWRITERS THAT TELL A STORY WITHIN THEIR MUSIC. WITH THIS BEING SAID, ONE OF THESE SONGS HAS BEEN RE INTODUCED, AND WHAT A PURE DELIGHTFUL AND TRULY MEANININGFUL SONG, THIS IS, HAVING SUBSTANCE AND REAL DEEP FEELINGS THAT DESCRIBES SO MUCH AND RINGS VOLUMES!  THE SONG WAS WRITTEN BY THE COUNTRY/ROCK CROSSOVER MUSIC ARTIST MAC DAVIS, OF “DON’T GET HOOKED ON ME” AND ” STOP AND SMELL THE ROSES” FAME.

THIS SONG THAT MAC DAVIS WROTE WAS OFFERED TO SEVERAL MUSIC ARTISTS AT THE TIME INCLUDING THE LATE ELVIS PRESLEY, WHERE ELVIS ACTUALLY DID RECORD A VERSION OF IT IN 1969, THIS RECORD SINGLE CALLED “IN THE GHETTO” AND BROUGHT THE SONG TO A NUMBER 3 SPOT ON THE AMERICAN CHARTS. AND NOW OVER 50 YEARS SINCE THE SONG HAS BEEN REMADE BY THE COURAGEOUS CHILDREN’S CENTER IN UGANDA, AFRICA, LED BY THE AMAZING AND PURE TALENTED DdUNGU JAMES. THE SONG IS VERY FITTING AND TRULY & HONESTLY TOUCHED MY HEART. ESPECIALLY  SINCE THIS AMAZING PERSON, DdUNGU, WHO HAS A HEART OF GOLD FOR THE INCREASING LEVELS OF POVERTY, HUNGER, HOMELESSNESS AND INSTABILITY BOTH AT HOME & ABROAD. WITH THIS BEING SAID. THE SUCCESS OF THIS SONG WILL ENABLE US TO BE INVOLVED IN THIS SPECIAL PROJECT AND TRY TO DO SOMETHING TO HELP THE CHILDREN AND YOUTH WHOSE FUTURE IS NOT SO CERTAIN. THIS SONG HAS ALWAYS STRUCK A CHORD WITH MY HEART AND THIS STORY THAT DdUNGO HAS PRESENTED IS A REALITY.

IF I HAVE ANY POWER TO PERSUADE OTHERS TO GET INVOLVED THIS IS THE TIME!! I AM ASKING FOR YOUR HELP. AS A WRITER I HAVE A PASSION FOR WRITING WHAT I FEEL ABOUT THE MUSIC FOR WHOM I AM WRITTING THE REVIEW FOR AND ALWAYS ARRIVES FROM MY HEART. AS A WRITER OF THIS REVIEW ON THIS ISSUE AND THIS SONG I’VE FELT COMPELLED FROM MY HEAVENLY FATHER WHO ALL MY BLESSINGS HAVE COME FROM,TO SAY THAT THIS IS AN AMAZING AND BEAUTIFUL VERSION OF THE SONG “IN THE GHETTO” THE SONG SPEAKS VOLUMES OF WHAT THE CHILDREN AND YOUTH MUST BE EXPERIENCING. IF I CAN DO ANYTHING IN LIFE TO ASSIST OTHERS THAT’S WHERE I PLACE MY HEART & SOUL INTO ALWAYS HELPING OTHERS! TO QUOTE ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITES ” DO WHAT YOU LOVE & HELP PEOPLE ALONG THE WAY” THAT’S WHAT I AM MADE OF AND WHAT IS IN MY DNA FOREVER. THIS IS AN AMAZING SONG CHOICE AND I’VE ALWAYS LOVED IT.

THIS VERSION WILL ALWAYS BE IMPRINTED UPON MY HEART KNOWING AND UNDERSTANDING THAT OTHERS GO THROUGH SITUATIONS THAT SOME OF US TAKE FOR GRANTED. NOT EVER TAKING ANYTHING FOR GRANTED I FEEL THAT I AM TRULY BLESSED AND HONORED TO WRITE A REVIEW ON THIS SONG AND IT’S A DIRECT CORRELATION BETWEEN REALITY AND WHO I AM AS A PERON WHO TRULY CARES ABOUT OTHERS!  THIS VERSION OF THE SONG AFTER READING ABOUT WHAT THESE CHILDREN  REALLY COMES TO LIFE. WHAT AN AMAZING AND BRAVE SONG THAT STANDS AS A BEACON FOR THE TRUTH, REALITY AND THEIR WAY OF LIFE THAT THESE CHILDREN LIVE, AS OF NOW, I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN PASSIONATE ABOUT CAUSES IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, BUT WITH THIS RECENT AWARENESS, COUPLED WITH THIS SONG HAS MADE ME REALIZE MY ENDURING LOVE, SUPPORT & FRIENDSHIP TO THIS CAUSE, INCLUDING DdUNGO JAMES AND THE COURAGEOUS CHILDREN CENTER UGANDA AFRICA, SPONSORED BY ELAINE PRESLEY FOUNDATION.

“FINELY CRAFTED WITH DRIVE”

What can I say there’s just “No Easy Way Out” I remember my radio days of disc jockeying and actually playing this hit record for the amazing and super talented Robert Tepper. The song was featured on the Rocky IV soundtrack. This last month I have been totally blown away and amazed and honored to write a music review on Robert’s latest project called “Better Than The Rest” and wow!! the album  really is Better than the Rest”. The album starts out with a overwhelming and amazing kick in the face with a huge boom. The album not only is an amazing and brought a breath of fresh air to my musical pallet and music collection also my ear drums.

The album starts with a head banging and a rock beat that has Roberts signature sound all over it. The albums sound brought back amazing memories and bears the definition of true real rock & roll.  The next song is called “Better Than The Rest” and Robert once again brings in that amazing and driven perfection pitch and really has impressive lyrics and total and truly musical drive,With the accelerator to the floor. The next song shares that driven feeling and Robert and his vocals and smooth texturing added in his songs have an almost anthem feel to it and really has impressed on me. This brings that true rock & roll feeling and emotion that I have been craving. The next song on this album is a truly amazing and continues with the rock beat and with the amazing talent of Pablo Padilla coupled with Robert it’s a true match made in heaven and really rocked my speakers and is a testament that there is true rock & roll out there. One just has to look for it. “Time Just This Time” a very fine example of a true emotional feelings on a song & allows one to really hear the true talent that Robert brings to your ears.

I’ve been a long time fan of Robert, and this wonderful musical artwork cements this for me. The next song I really and thoroughly enjoyed the song is called ” My Yesterday” and Robert continues soaring above the horizon of solid music that I really missed hearing. As I listened to this amazing and hot and on fire album from Robert Tepper I thought to myself this is real talent and a rock album in it’s purest form. The next song is called “Tell Me You Love Me” and Robert really knocks your socks off. This song has all the makings of what real rock & roll music is supposed to sound like. This is my personal favorite song on this album and shows and smells of rock & roll.  Robert Tepper leads the way with this album, with this particular song. “Show Me Where the Light Is Going” another reason to keep the volume on it’s highest point, a real hard edged song coupled with mean sounding guitar works of Pablo Padilla and Roberts incredible vocals. This song will kickstart you and keep the ground shaking.
The next song is called “Beyond The Atmosphere” and Robert continues to soar with his amazing lyrical content and his vocal range that makes the song contagious and very entertaining. ” I Don’t Want to Make You Love Me” Robert sets the mood into high gear and really impressed me. The whole album just flows just right and with all the song assortment really has that sound that comes together and allows your heart and mind take a trip on a rock & roll roller coaster that doesn’t allow room to step off. The last song on this totally amazing album is called “You Know Just How You Feel”  it has that coolness with a roughness that truly is remarkable and with the team of Robert Tepper & Pablo Padilla it allows you to turn up the volume a couple of notches and enjoy the true and amazing ride that you are embarking on. I have been totally blown away with this remarkable piece of rock & roll artistry which is defined by Robert Tepper & Pablo Padilla and this album will NOT be out of reach any time soon. I’ve had in my music player for the last few weeks since I have received it and it will be always. The album is a treasure to own and to have in my personal collection and I thank Robert Tepper for his incredible support and friendship and always looking forward to hearing his amazing and truly incredible music. After listening to this album I’m convinced there is “No Easy Way Out” and listening to this album I’m on this ride for a very long time.

“HONESTY & GOODNESS”

As I began to formulate and listen to the latest music from country gal and wonderful amazing music artist Karisa Kay, a gospel album called “Secret Weapon” where Karisa really pulls out and showcases her magnificent musical diversity & style. The Album starts out with a punch the song is called “High On Jesus” and Karisa has that sound that is just simply put amazing the song with her vocals brings elements of pop country with a whole lot of enthusiasm and Karisa and her vocals were at times Dolly Parton sounding and her band is phenomenal and talented.

It’s been a while since I reviewed Karisa with her first album called “Somebody To Love”. Karisa with this album launches off a whole lot of fire and is a supreme example of how music needs to be heard. Karisa shows her total colors with the next song called “The Other Side Of The Tapestry” and I really love this song it has punch, and a whole lotta rhythm and Karisa has found her niche with this song it matches her just right. With this album I really felt that Karisa is at home and shows her tremendous musicality woven within this amazing assortment of spiritual and positive songs. “If That’s Not Faith” Karisa once again proves who she is as a singer and bringing in her just right vocals and matched with the music that accompanies her throughout this marvelous music album.

“You’ve Been Forgiven” is once again a song that just fits and Karisa brings in her true colors and shines. “Fight In Prayer” Throughout my listening experience on this album I kept thinking that this is a truly remarkable album and Karisa really shows us her message that comes across on all the songs that she sings on this album and I felt her true convictions through the amazing vibes throughout the whole album. “Secret Weapon” a song that Karisa really brings in her true honesty and I most definite felt her heart and soul was within this song and throughout this truly amazing and truly emotional music album. “Where are your Men At” another song that Karisa just allows you to really and truly feel her emotional value brought to her beautiful music. “My Identity” Wow! what an amazing song and really shows Karisa and her maturity through her amazing and positive feelings brought through within her pointed and heartfelt songbook within this album.

“Fill Me Up” Karisa really has something here, Karisa has that true and honest sound and the feelings are real and I felt those feelings all the way through this marvelous and spiritually fulfilling album. Karisa has talent no matter what music she sings, however, with this album Karisa has brought her real style shining through and I love this album. Karisa has made an impact on my heart throughout this album with her sheer honesty and maturity. “Thank you Lord & Mama” Karisa once again shows who she is as a singer and with amazing vulnerability throughout this song and what a complete honest and heartfelt song that truly touches the heart. “Make Me A Diamond Lord” Karisa allows you to feel her strength on her amazing voice that hits the notes just right and her vocals are so truly honest and allowed me to feel her passion and hear her spiritual message

. “Down On My Knees”  this is an amazing example of how much pureness and conviction that Karisa presents with her beautiful gift of song and talent. This song hit home on a personal level and allowed me to think of how many times I’ve spent praying, down on my knees and this song has that feeling of humility that we all should have in our lives. “When The Rapture Comes” Karisa continues to show and sing from her heart and about, what really matters in life, and this song & the whole album  presents who Karisa is as a singer and who she’s gonna be in the future. Karisa is an amazing singer from her pop country music to this amazing and so very heartfelt music album which crosses over all music paths. A spiritual heartfelt and emotionally fulfilling album from a truly spiritual individual Karisa Kay,  with true and heartfelt, honest music that is a true gift in my life & my hopes for yours as well. I thank Karisa Kay for filling that spiritual side and cementing my emotional feelings about life & how important life is with the Lord at our side.

“HAUNTINLY BEAUTIFUL”

As a music reviewer and publicist there are many musicians that I have written music reviews for and from all genres of the business. When I started writing my reviews several years ago I began the journey of my childhood fantasies and dreams, Dreams of that in which I didn’t realize at the time ,being scared and not knowing where it may take me and how far. As a music reviewer I have been asked to write reviews for folks all around the world, and many famous, and many independent music artists not so famous but remain within the circle of all music matters.

With the slogan of my own company for the last 25 plus years,  I have been honored & truly blessed to have written music reviews for all music genre. It was told to me many, many times…” Focus on one genre of music, just write on Country musicians, just write on Rock and Rollers”. Well to put it into perspective, I am a very stubborn and hard- headed individual, and heeded my own advice and continued writing music reviews for all genres and, not just one. I am very grateful and honored and blessed with this decision.

I qualify this statement only because I have written music reviews for folks who play country music, Rock, Jazz, the blues classical and even opera… yes, I said opera! With this being said, several that I have I have been truly rewarded several times that I have written music reviews. What I am eluding to is that all of these artists share my true belief that “Hearing is Believing” and All Music Matters”, and ultimately,. I have been honored, blessed and given the huge opportunity and my all time dream to write for such a beautiful person who is famous as well.

I am speaking of the eldest daughter of the late Elvis Presley and still living mother Priscilla Presley.  Her name Elaine Elizabeth Presley, and what a superb and yet hauntingly beautiful song she has. The song is called “Scared Little Child” and the song is simply put “out of this world” and I actually felt the presence of Elvis just listening to the song for the first time. After speaking with Elaine this cemented my emotional feelings while listening to the song. I have listened to the song several times since & my music player has been in repeat mode ever since. I love the song, and the song really paints a clear and vivid picture of a child in a church praying.

The song is “Hauntingly Beautiful” where I felt not only the presence of Elvis but the presence of the emotional feeling that Elaine brings within her amazing vocals that usher in the presence of spiritual emotions throughout the song. For a little over four in a half  minutes Elaine brought me to my knees and made me feel so blessed and honored and knowing that I took the right path which is set for me by none other than the angels above guiding me in my beautiful life’s journey.

Having my dream come true speaking with Elaine and  knowing who she is and hearing her magical and beautiful gift of music and making me realize that God is always on my side, wherever we may roam. Even as a “Scared Little Child” he is there to always comfort and protect us.

I thank Georgia Paris for the introduction to me and Elaine and making my childhood dreams a reality. I also wish to thank Elaine for sharing her incredible gift of music and her amazing friendship as well. I am anxiously waiting for the release of Elaine’s new project featuring this beautiful and amazing song and many others.
