Guess Who/BTO legend Randy Bachman has enlisted quite an impressive array of talent for his latest solo album, Heavy Blues (from Burlington's True North Records). Guitar master Luke Doucet (of Whitehorse fame) lends his axe skills to the amazing track, Please Come to Paris. The Hamilton musician more than hold his own with the other top shelf guests like Neil Young, Joe Bonamassa, Peter Frampton and the late, great Jeff Healey.
The majority of this wicked collection consists of hard driving, fast blues rock that'll get your juices pumping - This is major riff heaven. There are a few well-done mellower tracks as well. Bachman's distinctive voice and world-class guitar work (from himself and his guests) make this a must have.
To help promote this incredible album, Randy held a guitar solo contest open to all musicians. Hamilton's Troy Harmer was the lucky winner. Click here for the story.
You can buy this CD at many physical and online shops. It can also be downloaded though the True North Shop, eMusic and iTunes.
