Wonderful review of Blueberry Pie by Graham of Friday Blues Fix
Thanks to Graham for this ace review!
Starlite Campbell Band - Blueberry Pie (Supertone Records)
It might be hard for listeners to believe, but this is a debut release for this fine British band. Bassist/vocalist Suzy Starlite and guitarist/vocalist Simon Campbell both have extensive backgrounds in the British blues and folk scenes and decided to put their talents into a collaborative effort. The duo combines these two genres with bits from other genres......jazz, soul, rock and R&B.
All eleven tunes were written by the pair and they will bring to mind the blues sounds of those numerous British blues rockers who dominated the music scene in the late 60's/early 70's and who mixed influences in a like manner. Campbell takes most of the vocals, but Starlite acquits herself pretty well when given the chance. The stellar rhythm section (Starlite is a monster bassist) certainly do their part as well, and Campbell is a standout guitarist as well. This is as solid and confident a debut release as I've heard in quite awhile, and I think many listeners will agree.
