Reddog and Friends / Booze, Blues and Southern Grooves

Reviews of the New “Booze, Blues and Southern Grooves” CD

“Down, Down, Down” is a smoldering slow burner…it’s hard to pick what’s stronger on this track, Reddog’s soulful vocal or his superb guitar work. This is as good a set of southern blues and soul as you’ll likely hear this year.” Phoenix Blues Society

“After listening to the deep, gospel groove of “Love, You’ve Got to Spread the Word”, the album’s opening tune, you’ll wonder why Reddog isn’t a household name. His down-home guitar style, soulful vocals and overall sound echo the best Muscle Shoals hits of the 60’s and early 70’s, without sounding dated.” Relix Magazine

“Recording in the old rooms with as many of the old cats that can still play, this set is a master class. With echoes of Eddie Hinton hovering in the rooms as well as some who ambled over from Memphis, this is an utter throwback to when music mattered. Even if you weren’t there in the time, this will take you there. Killer stuff. Midwest Record

“Reddog’s influences like Freddie King, Duane Allman and Otis Rush are never far from the surface, and it sure makes for a Southern rooted affair that people all over the globe will enjoy.” takeeffectreviews
