Nameless Path by Marcus Foster

Album Review:

We like to feature the diamond in the rough from time to time and looking over the list of $5.00 offerings think we have on in Nameless Path by Marcus Foster. Released in 2011, Nameless showcases the talents of this UK artists and his ability to mix blues, folk, and alternative rock with some character. One of the best ways to experience it for yourself is to take a quick listen to the samples and see if his music strike a chord.

The Turning Point by John Mayall

Album Review:

One of the more compelling albums in the $5 group this month would have to be The Turning Point by John Mayall. Originally recorded at the Fillmore East in 1969 after his band the Bluesbreakers broke up with Mick Taylor going to the Rolling Stones, John Mayall got some musicians and decided to try performing music without “heavy lead guitar and drums” giving this live release a very intimate feel about it and let’s the listeners enjoy details not heard in a standard arrangement. Any fan of great and influential music would find The Turning Point to be a necessity in their music library.

Blues On The Bayou by B. B. King

Album Review:

The music world lost a Legend on Thursday and Blues will never be the same. Riley B. King, better known as B.B. King help bring Blues to center stage while influencing other great artists like Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Sheryl Crow, John Mayer, and countless others. In his honor, we are re-featuring an album that was featured about 5 years ago on our site but is one of his best in a long line of great albums. Blues On The Bayou is an hour of some of the best Blues guitar work you may ever hear and happens to be one of the featured $5.00 albums right now.

Live In Japan by B. B. King

Album Review:

One of the best guitarists to ever pick up a guitar is the blues legend B.B. King. And to get the full experience, a live performance cannot be beat. The next best thing would be a live recording. And while this may no Live At The Regal (Available for $5.99), Live In Japan is still one of his top 3 albums and features 76 minutes of music including a nine and a half minute recording Jamming At Sankei Hall. If you want one of the best live blues albums from one of the best, have a listen and see what you think.
