They say there is no substitute for experience, and I would certainly concur with that statement.There are a huge number of young guns on the blues and blues/rock scene these days, perhaps more now than ever. They are fast, brash, and confident but inexperienced nonetheless. Paying ones dues is not a popular practice these days.
New York guitarist John Earl Walker has been playing professionally since 1965. His lengthly resume includes a stint with a major label as a founding member of the Capitol Recording Artists Plum Nelly from 1970-1976. Since the bands breakup, Walker has continued to write, play, and sing, as do many great artists in this genre, in relative obscurity. He has paid his dues and then some.

"Walker has re-surfaced in 2002 with a vengeance on "Little Miss Perfect." The band which includes a talented lineup of veterans really pumps up the energy on this one!
Walkers guitar work is agressive and his tone nasty.This is definitely a recording that you will want to play at window shaking volume level.

This is some execellent rockin blues and another recording that all you ax-aholics will want to own! I particulary enjoyed "She Looks At Me,"
the very hot title track,(Little Miss Perfect,) "Hurricane," which may be my favorite on the set, and "Last Time Out," which also includes some great harp from special guest
Johnny Byrne.

If you are into guitar driven blues/rock music with an attitude,you are certainly going to want to add ANY and EVERY of John Earl Walker's CDs to your wish list.

You may experience "Little Miss Perfect" on-line at
www.johnearlwalker.com and there is indeed no substitute for experience.

Setting a guitar on fire is purely theatrics that may
pre-date Hendrix,done to shock and awe the audience.
John Earl Walker doesnt have to resort to such theatrics.
He has to be careful not to catch any house he plays on
fire. The fire that flies from his fingertips would leave
any venue he plays a pile of smoldering ash.He is incendiary, pure fire... His band (not to be forgotten)
equally so....

This New york-based guitarist has been electrifying
audiences for the past 40 years. Digitally remastered,
Little Miss Perfect captures a little bit of what it's
like to hear John Earl and his bandmates tear the house
down.

Right from the opening guitar licks of "Last Time Out,"
Walker and his smokin band of blues brothers get down
to business. The tempo of this opener is aided by the
guest harp of Johnny Byrne."Hurricane" is another
scorcher that slows the tempo down but recalls some of
the best tunes by the late Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double
Trouble.

Picking up the guitar as a 13-year-old, Walker has never
looked back, continuing to hone his chops over the
decades. One of his main influences, T-Bone Walker,
echoes throughout the recording, but Walker has certainly
developed his own blues style. Backed by a stellar lineup
of musicians that indvidually over the years have played
with everyone from B.B. King and Buddy Guy to Bo Diddley
and Muddy Waters, Little Miss Perfect is a perfect mix
of blues scorchers and soulful songs. Featuring a dozen
Walker originals, this CD shows that even after four
decades, this blues guitar great is not slowing down.

Little Miss Perfect features twelve orignal compositions and some scorching guitar at times reminiscent of Stevie Ray Vaughn, but also shows traces of some of his guitar heroes including Freddie King, Albert King, Magic Sam, and T-Bone Walker.
Walker is also an effective singer and the band provides rock-solid support. Standout tracks on Little Miss Perfect include "Hurricane," "You Let Me Down,"
"Last Time Out."
Fans of blues/rock in the Hendrix/SRV vein will want to give this fine disc a listen. Its available at the band's website, www.johnearlwalker.com.

John Earl Walker: 'Little Miss Perfect'
John Earl Walker's guitar has about as big a kick as the single-malt Scotch I'm drinking tonight. When he plays, wave after bluesy sonic wave splash inside your ears.

His voice is a bit ragged, but it's endearing all the same. Besides, when I'm in the mood to party, there aren't many blues guitarists I'd rather hear.

For the most part, the songs on "Little Miss Perfect" are like the hurricane he sings about on the album's second track. "Last Time Out" starts with gale-force guitar licks and never lets up. And "It's a Shame" is a hard-driving blues rocker; I can think of a lot of rock stars who have never came close to capturing its raw power.

This New York-based guitarist has been electrifying audiences for the past 40 years. Digitally remastered, Little Miss Perfect captures a little bit of what it’s like to hear John Earl and his bandmates tear the house down.

Right from the opening guitar licks of “Last Time Out,” Walker and his smokin’ band of blues brothers get down to business. The tempo of this opener is aided by the guest harp of Johnny Byrne. “Hurricane” is another scorcher that slows the tempo down but recalls some of the best tunes by the late Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble.

Picking up the guitar as a 13-year-old, Walker has never looked back, continuing to hone his chops over the decades. One of his main influences, T-Bone Walker, echoes throughout the recording, but Walker has certainly developed his own blues style. Backed by a stellar lineup of musicians that individually over the years have played with everyone from B.B. King and Buddy Guy to Bo Diddley and Muddy Waters, Little Miss Perfect is a perfect mix of blues scorchers and soulful songs. Featuring a dozen Walker originals, this CD shows that even after four decades, this blues guitar great is not slowing down.

Tight, infectious blues rock
There are lots of blues rock groups out there that are little more than wailing SRV clones with backup musicians. In contrast, the John Earl Walker Band is a BAND in the real sense... Walker is a great lead player but the whole band is tight, aggressive and rythmic, playing songs rather than just platforms for guitar solos. "What You Gonna Do" and "Follow My heart" have a driving, infectious rythm that get me on my feet every time. Really, a great sound, great guitar, great band.

An excellent album with a great mixture of soul and blues and a carefully dosed
Their second album, “Little Miss Perfect”, released by Orchard on February 1st 2005 brings a big quality improvement in every way possible. John Earl Walker: vocal, guitarist and composer-in one word- a complete musician. He managed to put together his music influences and his music skills into a truly great album.

“Little Miss Perfect” is a perfect example of what I’m trying to say: from Bo Diddley and Muddy Waters, through B.B.King and Buddy Guy to strong reflections of Stevie Ray Vaughan and his “Double Trouble”.

Is there a better way to enjoy yourself then by listening to a kind of music that puts it all together in a very interesting way.



The “Little Miss Perfect” album features:

Last Time Out/ Walker/4:39
Hurricane / Walker /5:39
It's Me/ Pace, Walker/3:25
What You Gonna Do / Walker /4:08
It's a Shame/ Tremelo, Walker/4:57
Follow My Heart/ Walker /6:33
Comin' Home /Walker /3:37
She Looks at Me / Walker/ 3:30
You Let Me Down / Walker / 4:59
Gave You My Heart / Walker /5:03
Little Miss Perfect / Walker /4:40
Can't Let You Be / Walker /6:25
Please pay attention on following tracks:Last Time Out, Hurricane, Comin' Home, You Let Me Down i Can't Let You Be.

Conclusion:
An excellent album with a great mixture of soul and blues and a carefully dosed rhythm&blues and rock. This album shows that even after more then 4 decades the strength and influence of blues guitar isn’t in stagnation but on the contrary, it dominates and progresses even more.
