Title: A Little Sexy's Alright
Catalogue Number: No catalogue number
Review Format: CD
Release Year: 2007


This is blues that heads of in the rock direction; however not so far that is loses sight of its roots.  There is a hint of Tinsley Ellis in evidence and at times a bit of Lonnie Brooks as well.  The result is a more melodious blend of blues and rock than you might at first be expecting.


"Strut" certainly has a touch of that Tinsley Ellis style Louisiana blues mentioned earlier, and the solid guitar and great throbbing beat certainly make it one of the highlights.  "One Thing" is a solid bluesy piece of rock, while "Believe In Me" is an impassioned slower paced number, and "Moxie Rockin'" gives us a good blast of country rock influenced fun.


"Good Old Fashioned Blues" is a slower number with a bit of a southern soul feel to complement a slower, deeper blues than the majority of the album.  It also has the best lines of the CD, "They say in life, that love is blind; but there's one thing that I've learned, marriage is going to open your eyes"!  The closing track "Jamba" is a bit of a surprise, and arguably the highlight of the album, a sort of country, blues and funk hybrid.


The second half of the album certainly seems stronger than the first to half to our ears, it just seems to have a bit more variety and a bit of a tighter sound.  Overall Greg gives us a worthwhile collection of 'deep fried' blues and rock, coated in a batter of southern soul and country.
