John Kay & Friends

Regular price $14.99

The brand new John Kay & Friends DVD was recorded live at the Renaissance Center in Dickson, Tennessee and features 19 of Kay's best known songs.  

"John Kay's recent albums contain a lot of social commentary and this one raises the bar a bit. His voice is perfect for this style of music. Vocally, he doesn't force the issue and instrumentally, he provides a nice traditional blues based sound which sounds very basic and simple, but the simplicity is deceiving as getting that correct sound is harder than it seems. John Kay switches from standard acoustic guitar, to resonator and electric guitars depending on what the songs need. His backing band is solid, and provides just enough support without overplaying.

Most of the songs are acoustic based, laid back, relaxed with blues story telling and commentary and continues to build until around three quarters of the way through, when the song 'Endless Commercial' adds great blues riffing electric guitar adds lots of attitude to the song. From this point to the end of the DVD, things start rocking until it ends with Steppenwolf's 'Magic Carpet Ride' and the obligatory 'Born to be Wild'. The encore drops back to a bluesy 'The Back Page' to finish off the DVD."
