by Brett Ellis Band
(Grooveyard Records)

'Electrified Live', the highly anticipated debut LIVE release from the Brett Ellis Band is 100 % pure blues rock fury unleashed! Brett Ellis on vocals and guitar, Rick Nash in bass and Calvin Lakin on drums. What this power blues rock trio have created here is is a blues/rock guitar-driven 4th degree assault on your ears. If you are looking for something to brush the cobwebs out of your skull, this bad boy will do the trick. From the opening slew of licks to the last note, this live performance is top-notch. Players like Brett Ellis show that the blues is by no means dead, and he proves it in this performance. This man is more then just a guitar player that plays fast, he is an emotional guitar player, that plays with feeling, and he might play fast, but it sounds good, and has feeling. I tend to like the uptempo rock blues numbers best: here my favorite, "Keeping The Rock Alive", "Stone Cold Killer", the bluesy, "Empty Bottle", "Angel", "My Own Way". The set has something for everyone. There's even a smoking cover of Jimi Hendrix's classic ,"Freedom". To anyone who says the blues are boring, let this album be a lesson to them. Who says you can't shred the blues, anyway? - Highly Recommended
