Alastair Greene Band – Trouble At Your Door

Alastair Greene Band – Trouble At Your Door
Eclecto Groove Records – ECRCD516
The latest effort from veteran SoCal blues/rock guitarist Alastair Greene hits like a fleet of Mack trucks thundering down the side of Mount Everest. As hyperbolic as that may seem, it is an apt description as Alastair is one of those blues rockers who unleashes powerful energy in the vein of Johnny Winter, Jeff Healey, and the like, while still keeping a blues feel intact. Backed by the potent and talented rhythm tandem of bassist Jim Rankin and drummer Austin Beede, Alastair roars right out of the gate with the all-tires-smokin’ “People.” The thunderstorming shuffle  “Back Where I Belong” showcases both Alastair’s gritty vocal howl and incendiary guitar solo capabilities. Prog keyboard master Erik Norlander’s prowess on the Hammond organ adds extra zest to “First Born Son” and “Calling For You” – the latter a haunting quasi-ballad with an enticing ebb and flow of seething intensity. In his career, Alastair has also been a much sought after sideman and session player, and with the pure talent on display here, there is no doubt as to why. Whether you are more into rock, blues, or that happy mid-ground in between, this CD will shake you to the very furthest reaches of your soul…and in a very enjoyable way! – MW
