Walter Trout & The Radicals - Live Paradiso Hall - 2006-11-04


Paradiso Hall 
Trout's career began on the Jersey coast scene of the late 1960s and early 1970s. He then decided to relocate to Los Angeles where he became a sideman for Percy Mayfield and Deacon Jones. He also worked in the bands of John Lee Hooker and Joe Tex. 
In 1981 he became the guitarist for Canned Heat This led to an invitation to play in John Mayall's Bluesbreakers where he shared the stage with fellow guitarist Coco Montoya. ]Trout recalled in a 2018 interview with Blues Radio International that while playing with John Mayall, he was rescued from a complete descent into alcohol and substance abuse by a post-gig encounter with Carlos Santana. Trout left the Bluesbreakers in 1989 and formed the 'Walter Trout Band' which developed a successful following in Europe,

AtticRock's best albums of 2018

Hey good music lovers, I wish you a rocking 2019 full of great music, whether on record or played live in concert!
This is AtticRock's choice of the best albums released last year and displayed below in no particular order.
I added their official links so if interested you can check them out.

 : |   TOP ALBUMS    | :

The Sheepdogs - Changing Colours
Up in Canada we have The Sheepdogs, which I've been following since 2011 as you can see here. Impressively every record they make is destined to enter my top ten list.
I need soundboard or FM recordings from The Sheepdogs urgently!
site - facebook - youtube

The Vintage Caravan - Gateways
Hot music from Iceland, greatly influenced by the best of the 70's hard rock.
site - facebook - youtube

Graveyard - Peace
Another one teletransported from decades ago, the Swedish hard rock band did a great album this year although not acclaimed as some previous work they did.
facebook - youtube

Spiders - Killer Machine
Also from Sweden and female fronted the Spiders remind me of Blues Pills but they are harder and faster. Still with plenty of catchy songs as Dead Or Alive, Shock And Awe or Heartbreak.
site - facebook

Judas Priest - Firepower
This was widely acclaimed and totally deserved it, close to the quality of their best 80's and 90's albums.
site - facebook - youtube

The Magpie Salute - High Water I
Rich Robinson is doing quite well on making something new while keeping a touch of Crowes' marks, also let us not forget that he is accompanied by fine musicians.
site - facebook - youtube

The Temperance Movement - A Deeper Cut
Third album for this British band, great blues/hard-rock songs served by Phil Campbell's unique timbre. Their second, White Bear, was the best of 2016 for me so there's no trick here, they're really good.

site - facebook - youtube

Black Label Society - Grimmest Hits
Monster guitarist Zakk Wylde manages to make great songs and still tour and do great performances with Ozzy Osbourne (as I saw this year).
site - facebook

Clutch - Book of Bad Decisions
Also from North America, Clutch can't seem capable of making a bad album and this got positive reviews all over, from Rolling Stone to Classic Rock Magazine (number 1 album).
site - facebook - youtube

Trust - Dans Le Meme Sang
Amazing return to form from the French band almost 40 years after the classic album Repression! With a more judicious use of the female choruses (i.e. less) it would even sounded better.
facebook - youtube

Riverside - Wasteland
If possible I like to include at least one prog album and this time I chose this album that I really liked by Riverside, a world class prog rock band from Poland. 
How international is this list?
site - facebook - youtube

 : |   Honourable Mentions    | :

Black Stone Cherry - Family Tree
The Pineapple Thief - Dissolution
DeWolff - Thrust
Joe Bonamassa - Redemption
The Struts -  Young & Dangerous
Joe Perry - Sweetzerland Manifest
Greta Van Fleet - Anthem Of The Peaceful Army
Ghost - Prequelle
Joe Satriani - What Happens Next
Stonefield - Far From Earth

2  Muddy Waters   

Blues Runs Deep (Live) (2018)

how this gem stayed hidden for so long
is amazing !

#1 Johnny  Tucker 

 Seven Day Blues (2018)  

Each song on the album was recorded live at Atkinson’s BigTone Studio in Hayward, CA, with all the players in one room, playing vintage gear and recorded on vintage equipment, and this commitment to authenticity comes through on every track. From the uptown Chicago shuffle of “Tired Of Doing Nothing” to the aching slow blues of the closing “You Can Leave My House”, via the primeval funk of the title track and the echo-drenched slide of “Do-Right Man”, each song reeks of deep emotion and well as a true understanding and appreciation of the way music used to be made.

Well for what it is worth..
that's the best of 2018  for me !
I had many others on my list...
hard to pick sometimes 
Thanks to all hard working bands for these great offerings!

Happy Downloading  for 2019!
