Product Notes

Chasin' the Blues - from Blues Access Magazine - Summer 2000 Looking for guitar playing good enough to stop traffic? Then meet guitarist David Landon, who proved his point by playing in the streets of Paris for a few years before returning stateside. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area now, Landon creates plenty of excitement with his metal-edged rock guitar sound in his second outing, Chasin' the Blues. He refreshed several of the very standard standards he takes on- especially a funked up version of Carl Perkins' " Blue Suede Shoes" - by speeding 'em up, streamlining 'em and cutting loose with his Robben Ford-like liquid heat on the guitar. Landon's also a solid, energetic singer, showing some spunk on "Rock Me Baby" and "I'm Ready." Other influences? Well, let's see: " Red House" and "Voodoo Chile" are here, alongside many meat and potato blues cuts and some originals. The rhythm section is firm and steady as a politician's handshake, maybe a little too much so on coulda-been-a-swinger "The Music's Hot" and Johnny Guitar Watson's "Don't Touch Me," but all in all this is a very impressive straight-on blues performance. BLUES BEAT INDY CD OF THE MONTH - Chasin' The Blues Crackerjack blues-rock guitarist David Landon has put out his second recording, 'Chasin' The Blues,' (this one, all blues) and it's a good one. This Berkeley-based blues boy, with more than a touch of Hendrix in his soul and a couple of Jimi's compositions on the CD, worships at the guitar-feet of the late Johnny 'Guitar' Watson and keeps his flame alive with ripping lines of stringed fever throughout this 50-minute, self-produced, mixed and arranged fireball. Check the boy out! -Southland Blues Magazine, February 2000.
