Album Notes
"Time Runs Faster" is the 11th official studio recorded release from 2 time Billboard Music Award Winner, and IBC semi-finalist, MOTU (Dr Richard Michelson). It is a prolific journey from acoustic delta roots to folk rock, jazz rock and traditional blues encompassing MOTU's unique slide guitar playing and relevant lyrical styling. PLUS, this new release by MOTU is a specially priced CD that also includes a bonus FREE intimate Live 32 track DVD video disc of the MOTU Delta Project in session in the studio performing material for this new CD along with material that didn’t make it on to the CD (note: the bonus DVD is only included with purchases of the physical CD)!

The CD has a line up of some outstanding Long Island-NY musicians; many of whom have performed with very well known artists such as Bo Diddley, James Cotton, Johnny Winter, Watermelon Slim, the Allman Brothers, Dickey Betts, Taylor Dayne, and Cindi Lauper (just to name a few)! The list of performing musicians on this CD also includes FOUR past IBC Memphis winners (either at the semi-finalist or finalist levels). So besides being a new MOTU studio album, and MOTU’s 11th Officially Released CD, this also is a representation of some of Long Island, NY’s best "home grown" talent!

Doc Blues

Soulful Groove
Nothing if not prolific, LI’s answer to Tom Waits and Muddy Waters specializes in film noire slices of life done tasteful, visual and deep. This release has been burnished by a stellar group of LI’s best session bluesmen along with Motu’s insightful and erudite visions of the world. You see the world via his vocalizations, virtuoso instrumentalisms and old soul feeling. Easily the bluesiest release from a man for whom life is a palette, the slow soulful groove of Time Runs Faster is a joyful break from hyper-fast guitar bands who think they are saying something. To that soul pomade is the deep wail of Rocket’s harp, jaunty bop of Key’s boogie piano, the king of LI slide artists Kerry Kearney and Adam Tese’s smooth sax. From the opening “Stumble and Fall” to Mr. Dixon’s “Love To You” to the deep swamp of “Soul of the Bayou”, Motu rages with pure blue. Dee Chetta’s warm harmonies add sweet bourbon to “Drowning In Whiskey” and Hot Tuna’s “Hesitation Blues” is soft and swinging with Dr. M’s Louis Armstrong growl aptly used. Closing with a Delta blue “I’m A King Bee” Motu has turned, IMHO, his finest release. Given his fecundity, creativity and energy, this is very high praise. Doc Blues highly recommends this platter of silver blue and truth.

Ken Michelson

Time sure does run faster and faster. But this CD goes a long way toward slowing it down and letting you enjoy it!

An outstanding piece of work and probably MOTU's best yet! I especially like the title song. The whole album is just so simple, basic and extremely pleasant to listen to. MOTU's vocals are actually more melodic than usual and blend so well with Dee's. And the addition of an alto sax was an excellent idea.

Overall, I thought it was just great!
