Review for ‘ROSS CONNOR’ – EP – ‘Aint-No-Fool’ http://rossconnor.com/ Self Release – 21st November 2014
This is the debut album ‘Aint-No-Fool’, of young singer/songwriter, Ross Connor. Hailing from Buckinghamshire, Ross leads the way on vocals and guitar with Luke McDonnell on drums and vocals and Paul Ford on Bass and vocals with Lee Vernon guesting on harmonica All the tracks on the EP are self penned.
The first track on the EP is ‘Aint-No-Fool’ and the albums name sake, has hints of chain gang in the intro leading into classic blues rock . Some good raw guitar and haunting harp input, with great vocals. Next ‘Wondering Blues’, a well put together 12 bar, with raw fuzz guitar and harmonica.
‘Money Spider’ has an up tempo feel. An honest rhythm & blues number with a ‘Feelgood’ edge. A great basic take and foot tapper with interesting vocals. The final track this EP is ‘Solitary’, a bit of a ‘head banging’ rock track, leaning towards ‘heavy’! Great fuzz guitar with thumping bass lines and pounding drums giving a great sound.
All in all a well put together album with a mixed spectrum of blues rock.
