    At Last CD


    Seldom an album had a such perfectly suited title.
    This 19 songs album fulfills a wait of almost 10 years.
    Recorded over one hectic 10 hour session At Last finally shows the Blue Rhythm Boys on a long player, and it was worth the wait.
    The line-up has changed a bit since their debut EP. Ashley Kingman (Red Hot 'n' Blue, Rockin' Rocket 88, Big Sandy and His Fly Rite Boys) joins Paul Ansell and Jim Carlisle on second guitar, while Matt Jackson (a gifted guitarist too) is on drums and Nick Gilroy on bass.
    They take advantage of this fuller line-up to delve into a more rhythm and blues/Chicago blues repertoire.
    They are often close to the originals, and sometimes they play them in a rockin' blues way.
    Conway Twitty's I'll Try is played with a blues feel with pumping piano, soulful vocals and a scorching guitar solo that make this song one of my favorites.
    The frantic covers of Tommy Cassell's Go Ahead On and Jerry Lee's Breathless remind us that they started as a rockabilly band, as does Ansell's own Come On Back with another wild solo from Jim Carlisle (what a guitarist!).
    Another fave of mine is Cajun Love Affair with harp and some lyrics in French to add the Louisiana flavor.
    If you like good rockin' blues and rockabilly with a touch of soul here and there, get your hands on this one.
    All killer, no filler!
