Robert Cray, Gig Review. Philharmonic Hall, Liverpool.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 9/10

Robert Cray is undoubtedly a legend when it comes to the Blues, for many fans of the genre he is the one artist that carried the Blues aloft between the end of the 1970s and the turn of the century with any sense of form, style, beauty and care, the true link between the Golden Age and the momentum that has followed since the final years of void in which Blues arguably, like Jazz and Progressive Rock died a little death every day.

Robert Cray, In My Soul. Album Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * *

The healthy resonance of a guitar is sometimes the only sound you need to hear to understand in how every instant the world can be both beautiful and devastatingly sad at the same time. For Robert Cray that singular echo coming through the airwaves is one that haunts, chills and pleases from opening track till the time when The C.D. has been placed regretfully back onto the rack. His latest album In My Soul is no different.
