"Witty and literate" to "Fabulous" and "Fantastic" - Reviews of 'Blueberry Pie'
Wowee!! We have been receiving such a wonderful response to 'Blueberry Pie', the new British Blues album by the Starlite Campbell Band!
The album is receiving fantastic pre-release radio play support from hundreds of specialist blues and mainstream radio shows throughout the UK, Germany, The Netherlands, France, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Poland, USA, Canada, Spain, Argentina and Australia with more shows being added daily; it's crazy, beautiful, wonderful!!
Simon and Suzy were also honoured when they received the news that 'Blueberry Pie' had entered straight in at #12 in the IBBA British Blues Charts; absolutely brilliant with eight weeks to go before the official release on February 1, 2017. Simon added "it wouldn't have been possible without the fantastic support of the IBBA radio presenters!"
The unsolicited words of support that they have also received via radio shows, emails and messages has been, in Suzy's words "Blinkin' amazing!! - it's been very emotional for us these past few weeks, well months actually, from when we first started writing the album all the way through the recording process to now!"
Here are some of the wonderful comments:
"Being a fan of the likes of Peter Green, Back Street Crawler, Robin Trower, Rory Gallagher etc, this is fabulous stuff!” Dave Hammond, Cambridge 105, UK
“Loved It. I thought I was in the TARDIS, real Blues done 60s style. Whoohoo!” John Lukasz, The Soul Kitchen, 3 Way FM, Australia
“Fabulous Stuff! I love it” Ian McKenzie, Blues Before Midnight, KCOR, Kansas City, USA
“Actually my fave record. It won't leave my speakers. Great tunes!” Klaus Fricke, Journalist, Germany.
"It’s an excellent album and I’m sure you’ll agree having listened to those three superb tracks! It’s good to see new bands coming along and taking the blues forward.” Harry Simpson, Still Got the Blues, Zetland FM, UK
"Stylish and riveting guitar playing" Jakob Wandam, Editor, Blues News, Denmark
"Fresh and modern, it’s witty and literate, it swings and it rocks, and it’s well-nigh perfectly executed. Hell, even the cover photograph is sparky" Iain Cameron, Blues Enthused, UK
“Listeners can feel the aura of classic blues in its grooves. The Starlite Campbell Band, while being totally legit, original and able song craftspeople, are deeply steeped in the British tradition of the genre.
There’s even hints to the Irish invasion - some Gary Moore overtones in CRY OVER YOU - while the powerful opener WALKIN' OUT THE DOOR has got “HIT” written all over.Great cover, too!” Edoardo Fassio, Catfish Blues Show, Italy
