#5 One of Boston’s (USA) best-loved guitarists, Monster Mike Welch has been a fixture on the international blues scene for over thirteen years (he has been recently nominated for a Boston Music Award for Best Blues Act). As a leader of the Monster Mike Welch Band, Mike has released four acclaimed CDs of mostly original material (These Blues Are Mine, Axe To Grind, Catch Me and Adding Insight To Injury), and toured North America and Europe. He also played guitar on Sugar Ray & The Bluetones’ CD on Severn Records. Now Mike Welch presents his latest labour of love called “Cryin’ Hey!” (Dixiefrog DFGCD 8601), his first album of traditional blues and his finest work to date.
Amazingly all the studio work was done in about six hours with no overdubs and additional gimmicks! All his influences can be heard on tracks filled with emotional approach that only true bluesmen can express (Buddy Guy, B.B.King, Hubert Sumlin, Magic Sam, Freddie King, Muddy Waters and Robert Jr. Lockwood). This is a fabulous tribute to the blues and his heroes and definitely one of the best releases in recent months, miss it at your peril!
