DUST & BONES Provogue ✪✪✪✪ ✪

Back in 2013, Mas­sachusetts gui­tarist Hoey re­leased his first al­bum, Deja Blues, which proved he had the chops to do jus­tice to the genre af­ter his pre­vi­ous rock and surf lean­ings. Back again to dig even deeper, Dust & Bones is brim­ming with great rock-blues gui­tar. Gary cer­tainly makes var­i­ous nods to the greats – the Zep­pelin groove on open­ing track, Box­car Blues, the Brian Set­zer swing­ing Who’s Your Daddy (nice licks!) and the Hen­drix wah meets ZZ Top stom­per Born To Love You (Gary’s voice al­most sounds like Billy Gib­bons here!) all show great taste and va­ri­ety. There’s a fan­tas­tic duet with rocker Lita Ford on Com­ing Home, while the huge pro­duc­tion on the Trower-cum-Bona­massa styled slow rocker, This Time To­mor­row, is mighty im­pres­sive.
