Blues Jam In Chicago- When Two Worlds Collide
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 13/03/2009 23:11:38
For all its good intentions, mixing the bright young stars of Britain's Blue Horizon label with the veterans of Chess records fails to bring out the best in either of them. In fact, two of the most succesful cuts are Watch Out and Ooh Baby, which both feature an unadulterated Fleetwood Mac. The few tracks that combine stars of both houses in a 50/50 measure, like Horton's Boogie Woogie and I Got The Blues, seem to be more comfortable, but Jeremy Spencer's Madison Blues is a very pale imitation of the original. Chess legend Willie Dixon is outstanding as a writer, producer and arranger but his playing on the upright bass repeatedly fails to connect with Mick Fleetwood's drumming, often leaving the rhythm section lacking in drive. Despite some fine solo performances and some acceptable 12 bars, the combination lacks the spark of the Chess originals or the moodiness of Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac at their best.
