The Daddy Mack Blues Band - Bluestones

This cd was my introduction to Daddy Mack Orr and the Daddy Mack Blues Band. Thanks to Inside Sounds for making the introduction. Auto repair shop owner Daddy Mack Orr comes out swinging with Shade Tree Mechanic. This number got my attention quick with it’s great sounds, lyrics and awesome fretwork. He follows this up with Plain Man, a neat song speaking of the simple life. It’s Gonna Be A Good Day is next and is a nice shuffle. Love his guitar playing here. Next is an instrumental number called Slim Jenkin’s Joint. The guitar playing by Daddy Mack is truly wonderful to listen to. His approach has the sound of someone who is not only in command of his instrument but also comfortable with what he is doing. No flash just pure blues guitar. Savin’ My Love is next and is a nice slower tempo song. This is the first of four songs on this cd written by Daddy Mack himself and shows he can not only play and sing but is a talented songwriter as well. Next is Razor Blade and is another song penned by Daddy Mack. This is pure blues and offerings like this will insure Daddy Mack Orr is know by future generations of fans as one of the legends from this millennium. He follows with another great song penned by James Bonner called Stop Givin’ My Love Away. Royal Shade Of Blues is next and was written by Eddie Dattel & Sandy Carroll. He follows up with a song written by himself with Billy Gibson titled A Real Good One and is titled perfectly as it is a real good one. Another instrumental is next in Stone Blues also written by Daddy Mack. A great Sam Cook song is next in That’s Where It’s At. Daddy Mack does justice to this great old song. He finishes the cd with the old classic song Feliz Navidad. This is a timely release and just over a month before Christmas is upon us.

I really enjoyed this introduction to Daddy Mack Orr and look forward to future releases from him.
