Live Blues on CD

'It was only a minor stroke of genius to have masterminded this CD's title: but it addresses the content: eleven tracks recorded across two B.C. bars in 2002, minus overdubs and representing varying degrees of Polish.Variations on classics including Junior Well's Messin with the Kid, Elmore Jame's I Can't Hold Out, and even Rory Gallagher's Too Much Alcohol mesh nicely with three originals, most notably Cox's slinky instrumental, Musta Notta Gotta Lotta. But there's something more than blues going on here. Cox and Butler don't take their entertainment lightly, delivering a highly unconventional, double guitar approach that scores mightily in the originality department across a wide divergance of styles. If you like your blues wringing wet, and fashioned around slippery guitars with just a pinch of humour thrown in for good measure, then this slightly-twisted collection may be for you. Cox is a local hero, renowned for his gifts on slide guitar, lap-steel and dobro while Butler adds guitar and vocals, plus an element of his comedic background to this enlightened presentation. The closest reference point might be McKenna-Mendelsen Mainline (due mainly to gruff vocals and inventive guitar), but the level of musicianship is on a higher plane. Their colourful, off-kilter guitar work is clearly the secret weapon here but the combination of Cox to Butler makes for a dynamic, if not demented, duo who would, according to this release, be a blast live.'
