Blues Boule­vard

In spite of the al­bum ti­tle it’s im­pos­si­ble to ever think of Innes as lost. Far from it, he knows ex­actly how to present his per­sonal slant on the blues. Here we are of­fered a cool dozen tracks with ten orig­i­nals, a great ver­sion of Otis Rush’s Dou­ble Trou­ble and the tra­di­tional song, Go­ing Home, neatly re­worked. Ably as­sisted by Steve Hall on bass, Jon Buck­ett on key­boards and Kevin O’Rourke on drums Si­bun sings and plays his heart out. Good con­trasts too from the beau­ti­fully flam­boy­ant gui­tar open­ing of the ti­tle track, through sev­eral speedy so­los, the harder rock ap­proach on There Will Al­ways Be and on to the beau­ti­ful Where Are You which splen­didly demon­strates his ex­per­tise on acous­tic gui­tar. Well known and loved for all his live work, Innes is a de­voted ex­po­nent of the blues, con­stantly tour­ing up and down the UK and across the world. If you’ve missed see­ing him then make sure you do. Mean­while this al­bum is a great place to get to know the man.
