Mel Brown and the Homewreckers – Homewreckin’ Done Live
Hot on the heels of his May 2001 W.C. Handy "Blues Comeback Album of the Year" award for his Electro-Fi debut "Neck Bones & Caviar" (E-fi 3363). We are delighted to announce the release of a scorching live set by guitar legend MEL BROWN and his ultra-tight band The Homewreckers. Entitled "Homewreckin’ Done Live" (E-fi 3370), the disc was recorded live as can be over a series of performances at Wally’s Pub, a smokey little hideout in Guelph, Canada where Mel and The Homewreckers have been laying down smoldering sets of deep blues and righteous rhythms to a packed house of true believers every Thursday night for the last several years.
Hailed as "One of the last great blues guitar players of his generation" in a feature article in the Nov./Dec.2000 issue of Living Blues magazine, Mel uses his new CD to take you on a riveting tour of his guitar and vocal prowess on such classic material as "The Sky is Crying", "Spoonful", "I’ll Play The Blues For You" and seven other hot tracks all of which get the full Mel Brown treatment. Guitar aficionados take note - Mel’s twelve minute and 10 second workout on "Hey Joe" is worth the price of the CD alone. On "Homewreckin’ Done Live" the cohesion between Mel and The Homewreckers is a thing of beauty to behold. JOHN LEE with his stellar, right on the money keyboard work, AL RICHARDSON’s deep soulful touch on the bass combined with JIM BOUDREAU’s good taste and high energy on the drums, give Mel a perfect setting to showcase his unique talents.
"Homewreckin’ Done Live" captures guitar master Mel Brown and his super tight band The Homewreckers at their creative peak through a series of dynamic live performances in a small intimate space, where they literally pull out all the stops. If you love "live" blues music, don’t deny yourself this CD, because when it comes to blues guitar it just does not get any better than this!
