HIT LIST REVIEWS
via his pivotal Bristol Sessions of 1927.
Peer's achievements are now celebrated
in this three-CD set accompanied by a
picture book.
The music runs from early blues and
country to Latin and rock and roll. Most
guitar aficionados will appreciate Peer's
sessions with Jimmie Rodgers' "Blue Yodel
No. 4" and "Cool Drink Of Water Blues"
by Delta bluesman Tommy Johnson, both
from '28. The Carter Family's "Keep On
The Sunny Side" is another historic track,
propelled by young Maybelle's influential
acoustic style.
There are 50 eclectic tracks overall,
including Ralph Peer-published material
by Buddy Holly, Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan,
and singer Lefty Frizzell (check out Norm
Stevens' hot cowboy-swing solo on his 1950
hit, "If You've Got The Money, I've Got the
Time"). While it's unusual to focus on a
man leaning toward the business side of
American music, this set more than makes
it point. The man was Peer-less. - PP

Vinny Roth
prove s ade pt at
mixing funk, rock,
and fusion to make
a record that sounds fresh and new - and
yet still seems to fit like an old shoe.
There are numerous instrumentals
showcasing his playing. "Strat-Tastrophe"
is a funky rocker with clever bluesy lead
and rhythm playing from Roth. "Gypsy
Cry" calls to mind the instrumental jams
of the Allman Brothers with fine soloing
and dual lines thrown in for good measure.
Roth mixes it up a bit by throwing in a
country-blues feel on the title cut. His
acoustic slide delivers the perfect message.
The vocal cuts all mix genres with ease.
In fact, several cuts have a funky, rocking
feel that switches midway through to a pop
bridge that is unexpected and welcomed.
The tunes are all original except for
an interesting slow-blues cover of Jimi's
"Crosstown Traffic." Roth makes full use
of his Strat and blistering double-stops
to tip his hat to Jimi while delivering one
of the least-derivative Hendrix covers
you'll hear.
Whether instrumental or vocal cuts, the
songs on Roth's latest show a songwriter
and player in command of his talents.
