Oot'n'Pik (aka CMP's Chris Smith): Received a bunch of albums to review for CMP - first impressions are good - think I'll start with Asleep at the Wheel which seems to be a diamond.
Expect to see a glowing 5 STAR review

It's OK. I seem to come away from Asleep at the Wheel recently feeling slightly disappointed: when I saw them last year in Wichita Falls I felt their performances were a bit ho-hum and work-a-day. And now a new album ... it's well played and the featured female vocalist is great but it's not really what I want to hear from them! Ray Benson has obviously wanted to do something different and try some different styles, like he did on his solo album a few years back. Personally I'd have been happy with recording 12 old western swing songs like they did with Willie Nelson in "Willie & The Wheel". "Dublin Blues" is good and the almost Parisian sounding "I Am Blue" stands out. Wonder if this will be one that grows on me?

New single from Dale Watson, "Elvis Was A Love Affair/You'll Cry Too", available to download and as a 7" single. Both pretty somber tracks. Not really sure what this relates to, can't see anything about a new album. It's up on Spotify.

I can very much recommend this new release from honky tonk piano man Damian O'Grady. He's backed Amber Digby, Miss Lesley, and Wanda Jackson to name just a few. Great stuff - and it's up on Spotify!

Also coming soon ... the third release by JP Harris and the Tough Choices. The tracks I've heard so far as good as previous releases but that cover ... ???

Yeah, I'm looking forward to this one. He's back in the UK later in the year too.

Definitely one for downloading instead of having a CD to look at...........
