ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
As The Bluescasters entered into the early processes of recording our second CD, the band felt that we wanted to create something that was not only different from our first effort, but still had our distinct Bluescasters sound and feel. As our thoughts and ideas came together, the project began to take form… Personal stories and life experiences became lyrics that were crafted around ever evolving melodies…and key elements to the songs changed several times! Like all things worthwhile though, eventually our efforts began to take shape… You’re holding the result. We hope you enjoy listening to Give Yourself the Blues” as much as we enjoyed making it a reality.

There are always a great number of people who warrant credit in some way when producing a project such as this. Most importantly we wish to thank our families. Their love and support is so critical to what we do… without it, there would be no Bluescasters! Our special thanks to Deb, Renee, Matt, Louise, Abby, Seth, Ellen and Owen. We need to extend extra special thanks again to Deb & Matt for putting up with the endless hours of rehearsal and recording sessions… not to mention the number of nights that pizza was on the dinner menu!

We would also like to thank the following people for helping in their own unique way… either by offering their support, lending a helping hand, or a few kind words of encouragement; Kim Reardon, Dan Kafila, Lettie, Diane, Margie, Laura, Tom & Vivian the Florida contingent (led by Pat & Harry), Bill & Sherry and their crew, Shep & Tracie, Chris, Angie & Frank, Terry and Linda, Al & Diane, Dr. Bob, Tom & Linda, Mike Abbate at Percussion World in Ferndale, Michigan (best drum store around!) ClearBlue Marketing, Benny Jet, Jesse Sinatra, AnnArborAlive.com web radio, Johnson’s Printing Services, the club owners and proprietors who book The Bluescasters, The Ann Arbor Blues & Jazz Festival board members, The Detroit Blues Society and others too numerous to mention in this limited space.

The Bluescasters appreciate all of you!

Holy S**T!!! These guys write 'em & rock 'em!
This is a fine bunch of original tunes! Their song, The Devil Done Raised Up, is truly what the blues was meant to be! Another great effort from one of the finest unsung (and un-signed)blues bands!

Compelling! You can't overplay this music!
The songs on this disc have it all...big rhythm, really catchy lines, and tight harmonies. The songs transend blues, rock, jazz, and country. A devoted fan of any or all of those will find things that they like in Give Yourself the Blues.

Really good blues
I'm someome that perfers soul and motown and like when singing is the main feature of the music. Well, this isn't soul and it isn't motown and the vocals are only pretty good, but the songs have very danceable rhythms and the lyrics are interesting. The band seems to be outstanding when it comes to producing there songs because there's a full sound even during laid back parts. I especially like "Nothing Lasts Forever" with it's strong beat and the double guitar stuff. "Read the Fine Print" is definitely a chick song. I hope they really mean what they say. The jazzy title song in nice. Over all, this is great for listening and I would like to hear these guys in a concert.
