Jim Singleton –8 O‘Clock In The Afternoon

Jim Singleton –8 O‘Clock In The Afternoon

A genuinely cool ten-track debut from PA-based guitarist Jim Singleton featuring some of his old buddies in support roles and a mighty fine grasp of purpose, pace and variety. Singleton clearly understands the need to move the music along while also retaining a listener‘s interest by steadily varying both tempo and pitch.
 


Kicking off with the wonderful peaen to self-indulgence, Peter Green‘s ‚Rattlesnake Shake‘, he rips through two tracks by the late, great Irish blueshound Rory Gallaher - ‚What‘s Going On‘; ‚A Million Miles Away‘ - and includes a couple of titles from modern master craftsman Bernie Marsden, (Place In My Heart‘ & ‚Here I Go Again‘) who also guests with backing guitar and vocals on the album.

To give a feel for the surprising quality on this first-release, howling Harp is provided by Grammy-winner and simply superb soul-searcher, Charlie Musselwhite while Australia‘s Fiona Boyes provides vocals and fine fretwork along the way. Include Gary Clark Jnr‘s thumping ‚Don‘t Owe You A Thang‘ to the mix and the overall result is a surprisingly mature debut release positively worth catching.
