CD REVIEW: SHUT UP AND RAWK by Doggie White & La Paz

by Doggie White & La Paz
(Metal Mind )

The latest release from the rock project, Doogie White & La Paz comes in the form of, 'Shut Up And Rawk'.  Some may recognize Doogie White from his work with,  Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow, Yngwie Malmsteen, Empire, Chains,  Demon's Eye, WAMI (White Appice Mendoza Iggy) and Michael Schenker's Temple Of Rock. La Paz is made up of, Chic McSherry (guitar), Alex Carmichael (bass),  Andy Mason (keyboards) and Paul McManus (drums). The production is good and tight with lots of bottom end punch courtesy of the monster rhythm section of bassist Alex Carmichael and drummer, Paul McManus. Guitarist Chic McSherry is a solid guitarist that plays with swagger and of Doogie White's vocals are on point. If your cup of tea is classic hard rock this recording is sure satisfy your musical palate. Album highlights include; "Light The Fire" that has that Rainbow meets Deep Purple vibe to it. "Heart Of Stone", "A Certain Song", "Faith Hope And Love" and "Throw Me To The Wolves". Overall, the album works better when listened to in it's entirety and does not drag on or sound generic in the least bit. The band gels perfectly. Sheer quality as you would expect from such talented & experienced musicians. - Highly Recommended
