Blue Touch – Old, New, Borrowed And Blue


An easy listen blues album with a mixture of classic and electric blues with rocky input.

The line-up consists of Andrea Maria on vocals, Alan Cleaves on vocals and guitar, Neil Sadler on vocals and guitar, Merv Griffin on bass and Hugh Lawrenson on drums.

The first track, ‘St Louis Blues’, is in an old blues style, leading into ‘Trouble’ which has a more rocky feel. I particularly enjoyed the take of the Melody Gardot number ‘Your Heart Is As Black As Night’.

Some classic electric blues to follow, with a good harp driven track ‘Drifting’ in a classic old style blues. ‘Tallyman’ had a definite leaning towards heavy rock, with a good rendition of the classic Zeppelin track ‘I Can’t Quit You Baby’.

An acoustic intro’ for ‘Black Sheep, has some class slide guitar. The final track and probably my favourite, the classic ‘Baby Please Don’t Go’. A well put together number with great guitar and vocals.

All in all a good, well presented easy listen album.
