The Blues Groovers - Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed Blues was produced by Tony Gullage with Co-Producers Brandon
Adams and Jason Parfait and Executive Producer Mark Samuels
and released on the Basin Street Records label based in New Orleans.
The Blues Groovers - Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed Blues is 9-tracks of wonderful! As the name implies, the release has some
old music, some borrowed music, and some new music that Kevin Gullage wrote. The
release opens with a great up-tempo 1975 song written by Jeffrey Bowen,
Alphonso Boyd, and Edward Hazel entitled, Shakey Ground, where its catchy
lyrics implore, "I'm standing on shaky ground ever since you put me down..."
Kevin Gullage shows his prowess as a songwriter as well as a singer and pianist
on the next track with his slow and sultry song, Movin' On featuring
Bonnie Baker Brooks on guitar.
Johnson (1911 - 1938) was a prominent American Bluesman and songwriter, and
Kevin includes Robert's 1936 song, Sweet Home Chicago, in the number 3
spot on the release, which he introduces by saying his father was from New
Orleans, and his mother was from Chicago, and every summer they would travel to
Chicago. Ronnie Baker Brooks layers in guitar on this track as well. The
release continues with another Kevin Gullage song, So Called Friends Of Mine,
which is another great track on an altogether great album.
to the year 1969, the release slides into a Titus Turner song entitled, Grits
Ain't Groceries, followed by the 1922 song, Ain't Nobody's Business If I
Do, written by Porter Grainger and Everett Robbins.
continues with the song, Valerie, written by Abi Harding, Boyan
Chowdhury, Dave McCabe, Russ Pritchard, and Sean Payne, before sliding into
another Kevin Gullage song, My Baby Gave Me The Blues featuring Norman
Sylvester on guitar. Kevin closes out the release with a kick-it-up rollicking
finish with The Blues Is Alright written by James "Little Milton" Milton
Campbell, and indeed it is!
hometown is New Orleans, it is only fitting that Kevin Gullage's debut album is
on Basin Street Records established by Mark Samuels in New Orleans in 1997. Since
then, Mark has produced an amazing number of talented artists including Kermit
Ruffins, Henry Butler, Jason Marsalis, Los Hombres Calientes, Irvin Mayfield,
Dr. Michael White, Jon Cleary, Davell Crawford, Lena Prima, Rebirth Brass Band,
and many more. Kevin Gullage is indeed in good company at Basin Street Records,
and I look forward to hearing more from this talented singer, songwriter, and
pianist in the years to come. As an added note, if his name seems familiar, he
competed on the television show, American Idol.
Until next time, keep enjoying the music!
