ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Raga Celtic Blues Band's 1st CD "Play That Funky Raga White Boy" is the culmination of a nearly 2 year collaboration of live performances and studio work by multi-percussionist Jamie Wilson and performance poet Mark Coburn. Using the steady drone of the electronic Tanpura and exotic beat of the electronic Tabla as a launching pad for rocking explorations into the word and musical realm of Jam. Through live performances the group, which also includes electric guitar wizard Ralph Reinoldi along with bass and guitar master Michael Bereznoff, has developed a unique world sound that is realized on this CD. The recent addition of vocalist Liz Downing has added a whole new magic to the bands sound.

Top notch and solid!
I can listen to this blend of solid rhythm and surreal imagery driving in my car, working around the house, or laying in my bed looking up at the black light galaxy. It somewhat reminds me of The Doors, but that is too simple a comparison. The artists are sure-footed in their chops, pitch perfect and funky. I have long admired Mark "wireman" Coburn's poetry and this is a good way to listen to it.

It's Audio LSD! (not that I've dropped acid before or am promoting it's abuse...
Down-N-Dirty, psycadelic, spacy audio "LSD" with a blend of Indian music, rock and heavy blues with a hefty dose of poetry. The music is reminiscent of the Doors, as some have said, but I hear hints of Frank Zappa, and the late-period Beatles as well. Vocalist Mark Coburn's gritty swagger may remind one of Captain "The Torture Never Stops" Beefheart, and yes, of course, Jim Morrison. Guitarist Raph Reinoldi gracefully kicks out glorius, jazzy Zappa-esque licks on his axe on most of the tracks here. The vocals are well delivered, the rythm section is tight, and the poetry is sparse but thought-provoking. "Holding Down the Stone" is a great album opener, and it starts as much the other songs do - with a droning tambura and spunky tabla riffs. Where this common intro might seem to make the tracks repetitive and predictable, the band makes sure to play the opening trances with different notes and textures from song to song....texture is good!
I reccomend "Holding Down the Stone", "Galaxy", "Badger's at a Circus", "Romp in the Woods", and "Jammin' With the Devil", which seems to be the band's, slow, heavy responce/tribute to Van Halen's relentless "Runnin' With the Devil".

I don't really see where the "Celtic" part or their name fits in with the music,(though there is a pennywhistle on tracks 1 and 5), but the R.C.D.B.B. definately tips it's hat to rock's psycadelic golden age all the while exerting enough youthfull engery to appeal to Generations X and Y.
