Jackhammer Blues

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Don Bergenty
Anyone familiar with the slashing sounds of Johnny Winter And, the long, tall Texan's house-rocking quartet of the early 1970s, is well aware of the blues prowess of Rick Derringer, the band's second guitarist. Although a rocker through and through -- just listen to the sentiments expressed on his anthem "Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo" -- Derringer is no slouch when it comes to blues picking and singing. His third recording for Blues Bureau International, JACKHAMMER BLUES, is another smoker. Here he tackles classic tunes by Elmore James, Albert King, Mose Allison, and others.

Barnes & Noble - Don Bergenty
Anyone familiar with the slashing sounds of Johnny Winter And, the long, tall Texan's house-rocking quartet of the early 1970s, is well aware of the blues prowess of Rick Derringer, the band's second guitarist. Although a rocker through and through -- just listen to the sentiments expressed on his anthem "Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo" -- Derringer is no slouch when it comes to blues picking and singing. His third recording for Blues Bureau International, JACKHAMMER BLUES, is another smoker. Here he tackles classic tunes by Elmore James, Albert King, Mose Allison, and others. And once again Derringer proves that he might well be the most underrated blues guitarists out there. When his instrument does the talking, you listen. It snarls, screams, and cries with emotion -- this is great, straight up, hard-edged blues. And just to show us he hasn't totally forgotten his rock roots, he turns in a slinky take on "Street Corner Talking" from Kim Simmons of Savoy Brown. If you're a fan of Gary Moore or Eric Clapton when both concentrate on the blues, grab this album and hold on tight.
