Knock-Out Greg & Blue Weather – Telling It Like It Is!
This band has got all the right stuff going. Junior Watson even toured with them! The album features fabulous production and playing and tons of great song writing! "Telling It Like It Is" has a high tension sound and an amplified harp that undulates. This Swedish combo must be regarded as a leading force in European traditional style blues, and R&B. Great mix of originals, and (obscure) classics, with rockers, ballads, blues, up-tempo R&B and jump blues. Excellent, by any measure. There's a truly authentic sound deeply embedded in the music of Knock Out Greg and Blue Weather. It's no wonder that Knock-Out Greg has had such a long career.
