John Taglieri - 'Lucky #9' (Leap Dog Music) 4/5
Cuts like the tender and plaintiff Dying Alive, the old school rock and roll work out of Losing Me and the catchy sub pop Make Me Believe as jump out from the speakers and give the listener a big friendly hug that leaves yours ears with a very warm and satisfied glow.
With a voice that has hints of Roy Orbison and a song writing style not unlike the great John Fogerty, Mr Taglieri, who played most of the instruments himself, has with Lucky #9 is one helluva pleasant record that should win him new fans and admirers worldwide and make his existing followers very happy indeed.
Very Good Indeed.
For fans of... John Fogerty, Steel Blue Rose, Grinderswitch, Creedance Clearwater Revival.
