A Lick and a Promise

by Bobby Lindstrom

This is high energy blues and rock n roll music, featuring Bobby's killer guitar licks and emotive vocals. Kind of like Billy Gibbons playing with the Rolling Stones. "A Lick and a Promise" also features the outstanding sax work of Paul Biondi.

Album Notes
Guitar 9 Records Review:
Bobby Lindstrom "A Lick and a Promise"

"Inspired Guitar Over Beatlesque Songcraft
Guitarist/vocalist Bobby Lindstrom delivers righteous blues-rock on A Lick And A Promise, a nine-song CD-R release described as "rich in Beatlesque songcraft and inspired electric guitar playing that falls somewhere between Billy Gibbons boogie and Rolling Stones grit." His lead vocals containing the prescribed amount of bluesy gruffness and dark hues, Lindstrom's Les Paul commands the rest of the attention, as he lays out searing, tube-driven solos over the all-original material. Lindstrom's bassist Sam Densmore produced, engineered and co-mixed A Lick And A Promise, even co-writing "Dirt For God" and "What Did I Do?". Also contributing significantly to the music were drummer Roy Eikamp, keyboardist Doug Randall and sax man Paul Biondi. For an album that epitomizes guitar-driven blues/rock music, track down a copy of A Lick And A Promise.

A native Oregonian, Bobby is a blues influenced rocker who has been playing guitar and singing for over thirty years. He's performed all over the West coast with artists such as Big Brother and the Holding Company, Clarence Clemmens, Henry Vestine of Canned Heat, and most recently as a solo artist sharing the stage with sax man Paul Blondi.

Nancy McIntosh - Boise Blues Society

Bobby Lindstrom has that undefinable quality shared with great stars!
On "Lick and a Promise" Bobby truly shines. From the homage to Robert Johnson in R.J. Blues where Bobby's guitar work and the sax work of Paul Biondi get the groove started to the rough ZZ-Top like "Rock Mode" that also reminded me a bit of Ted Nugent's Stranglehold, Bobby's life experiences and music ability come together in this project that comes straight from his heart. The only thing missing here is that you can't see him live which is where he really thrives. Bobby has stage charisma and music showmanship that I've seen rarely and only in the greats! You must see Bobby live to fully appreciate his talents. Way back when...when he and I were considerably younger...I met Bobby at a barn dance way up Coos River, OR. The guys watched in awe and the girls drooled over him. Some twenty-something years later, Bobby still gets em' all right in the soul. When Bobby sings - "Your eyes could just kill me" you know he writes and sings about heartache and troubled times from his own life and touches on universal truths like nobody else.

****Nancy McIntosh is a writer, musician and former resident of Coos Bay, OR. Her ability to recognize great talent comes from her observations made from an early age. Her father, Renny Foster, spent 5 years as the Asst. Conductor and lead sax man at Harrah's Southshore Room in Lake Tahoe. During those years, Nancy accompanied her father to countless rehearsals and dinner shows featuring stars such as Jack Benny, Wayne Newton, Mitzi Gaynor, Danny Thomas, Danny Kaye, and many, many others to numerous to mention. Nancy says, "There is such a thing as "star" quality and it is almost impossible to pin down, but when you see it and you pay attention you will know you have found it."
