About this deal

All of these great luthiers saw this as a friendly competition, and as a result they went beyond anything they’d ever done. A premium quality, padded gig-bag, made from durable showerproof material, with twin rucksack-style shoulder straps, side and front grab handles, dual front pockets and stitched BMG logo, is supplied as standard with all Special models. He dedicated a month to each style and was writing and recording a song a day to try to cover it all. The social and personal problems found their way into the music and started to change the Blues on a profound level.

albums took me the best part of a year to work through them all a few times and pick out what I liked and was less fussed over. If so inspired, playing over 10 hours of this music straight through keeps the mind focused because each song is fascinating in its own right. Racism and the KKK made the situation even worse, which reflected in the music, instrumentation gradually changed and the lyrics told stories of fear ("KKK Blues"), aimless wandering ("Walkin' Country Blues"), alcoholism ("Too Much Drinkin'"), but also the flight from prevailing conditions, maybe with another perspective for life and the future in the big cities ("Ticket for Chicago"). Chinery intended the project to be an homage both to D-Aquisto and to the artistry of the archtop guitar. Regarding the BMG’s neck, I find it 'medium' sized, so compared to the slim Ibanez it took a little getting used to at first.Personally, I think he excelled at the early styles of country and slide stuff, so I never really listened to the whole thing, it was an ambitious project, and I am happy to see him still around, on the fishing programme. I think he does get a bit of a bum rap, but he's done some great stuff - Auberge was the soundtrack to one summer holiday to France, and while I don't remember much beyond the title track, I do remember liking it a lot. Nor did "electric" stop at the guitars – organs, pianos, keyboards, all was going electric, studios started to play around with the new electric sound, the possibilities seemed endless.

As well as fulfilling everything you need on the sound and playability fronts, you have to look the part too. It’s like someone forgot to tell them they’re single coils, and they’re not supposed to sound like humbuckers too. For each of the albums were studied their history and characteristics, and for the recording process and sessions in the studio were procured and used equipments which was used at the specific time, and the studio itself was set up in the way to best-possibly convey the sound of rooms of the previous times. Being quite obsessive by temperament, Rea had to get to the bottom of this phenomenon so he went out and bought almost every book on the subject extant.

I have the Blue box set, and as you'd expect from that many songs in one place at one time, it's a mix of awesome, really good, a bit mediocre and a handful of fillers.

Plus Driving Home For Christmas is a staple -aat year was the first time I didn't play it on the way home on the last working day for as long as I can remember, because I was working from home due to poxy covid.

The book, slightly smaller than an LP cover, begins after the two pages that hold the first 8 CDs with two large paintings. Usually with a new album, even a double, you listen, put it on in the car when travelling, listen again and it sinks in over a period of time.
