Album Notes
"Having just had the sheer time of my life listening to "My Life" l need to write something about it for you. But the problem is l just want to keep listening to it as it is such a celebration of everything that attracted me to the Blues when l was a little boy back in the 1950's. My gran taught me the Blues and sang me the Blues and now Reverend Raven is doing it all over again with this album. This isn't a pretentious album full of trickery computer programs or undecipherable messages for the new age but rather a straight ahead genuine Blues album. Raven possesses the most magnificent of baritone voices with quite a brilliant range. He is warm and engaging with incredible control over his voice that can be simply breathe taking to say the least. Add to this some major facts and they are he wrote all songs on the album and each and every one is incredible encompassing many Blues styles tempos and moods. Then we add to his immense talents already listed we have to then point out his sublime guitar playing that is just jaw dropping with a deft touch and tonality that can be in your face or so very subtle. Added to this we then pay tribute to the band, The Chain Smokin' Altar Boys made up on this album by Cadillac Pete Rahn, Madison Slim, Benny Rickun, Westside Andy Linderman, Big Al Groth, Andre Maritato, Brad Bill, P.t. Pederson, Vic Spann, Spencer Panosh, Bobby Lee Sellers Jr., Craig Panosh, Ron Kovach, Jimmy Voegeli, Mickey Larson, Danny Moore and Jeff Roberts. Each and every player has made this one formidable outfit. Certainly one to be reckoned with. This certainly is what l would call a expressive admiration of the past masters that have been a major influence on Raven and the groups lives and for that matter ours also. Every aspect of the album is everything you could ever wish for from a Blues album so my recommendation is that this is the album you have to have in your collection and there is no better way to kick off 2018. Blues can be interpreted in many ways but then again we want it to remain Blues not some shallow imitation. Trust me this truly is the skinny." Peter Merrett/PBS 106.7FM Melbourne Australia
