From the queen of electric blues guitar comes another great CD "Key to
Love." On "Key to Love" Ms. Davies plays tribute to her mentor John Mayall,
covering his originals with her own flare. Her guitar playing is superb and
supported by the legendary talents of James Cotton (Muddy Waters’ band) and
Bluesbreakers alumni Mick Taylor & Peter Green. She is joined a second time
by New England keyboardist Bruce Katz as well who’s playing is fantastic and
adds to the completeness of the CD. My only exposure to Ms. Davies prior to
this is her CD "Love the Game" produced by veteran and electric blues
guitarist Duke Robillard. It didn’t take long for "Key to Love" to catch my
attention. It’s upbeat and filled with spunk comparable to the music of
Marcia Ball. Being a Texas blues fan my first thought was that sounds like
Lou Ann Barton. "Key to Love" would be a good listen for those who enjoy the
Texas flare to electric blues. A biography and more information on the music
and milestones of Ms. Davies can be found at www.debbiedavies.com.
