Davy Knowles is a lucky dude. You see, he got to produce his CD â€œComing Up For Airâ€, with Peter Frampton. Quite an honour. He even got the grizzled rock music legend to play some guitar and EVEN do a â€œrock and roll count it!â€ on ‘Keep on Searching’. When I first thought about the possibility of Frampton working with new blood on a rockin’ blues CD I thought it could only mean good things as Frampton has often tried to push boundaries and not keep conformed. So then I had a listen to the CD. And then I had a listen again, I genuinely thought I put the wrong CD in the player at this point. Did somebody just tell Frampton to dial-a-Blues-album? And Knowles himself isn’t innocent here either. His voice is the kind of M.O.R dirge that people like Clapton have established over the years and that mavericks like the Alabama 3 spend their time ridiculing. It could have been so good, too. And the solos: wow, I have lots to say about these prime examples of guitar masturbation. Not. And it is horrifically boring, from start to finish. Sorry Davy, but not even close to making an impact, unless I choose to bludgeon someone with the jewel case it came in. Which is possible.
