From Where I Stand
(2005 Two Boys Music, TBM 143)
Review Date: Feb 2008
by Diana Olson
Barry Rillera finally has a solo career. After 30 years with the Righteous Brothers as lead guitarist, band leader and tour manager, and after recording with Ray Charles and then with White Trash, he has come into his own.
His CD "From Where I Stand" is a class example of old school bues down to the Hammond B3 organ in "Got To Let You Go". "I played with your feelings (Now I'm playing with feeling too)" is 7:11 minutes of a full course meal of blues. Barrys guitar playing is seasoned and spicy. When all the insturments join in the chorus it has a big band sound. I thoroughly enjoyed this entire CD.
