Power Blues Guitar Live

Brad Wilson

CD Baby 2016

Review by David Bowling


Brad Wilson is a guitar force of nature who fuses rock and blues into an energetic mix. His new release, Power Blues Guitar Live is am amped up live release featuring eight modernized blues classics and four re-imaging of his own compositions.

From the opening blues and rock blast of Muddy Waters “Got My Mojo Working” to a gritty performance of Robert Johnson’s “Sweet Home Chicago” to the straight blues of Freddie King’s “I’m Torn Down” to the subtle jazz improvisations of “I Can’t Quit You Baby; there is a rippling energy.

Power Blues Guitar Live is an example of how the blues intersect with rock and roll. So grab a copy, turn the sound up as far as it will go and hang on.
