Guy Tortora 2002 évi bemutatkozó albuma. Tortora Pasadenából jött, de jelenleg Angliában élő gitáros. Itt léte alatt összehozott egy csapat angol zenészt akik kiváló támogatást nyújtottak Guy félelmetes gitárjátékához. Sokan hasonlítják Albert Collinshoz és Ry Cooderhez, de a játékában ennél több érezhető.

Debut album from Pasadena bluesman Guy Tortora, now residing in England. During his time over here, he has assembled a band of English musicians who provide excellent backing for Guy’s formidable guitar work. He has been compared to Albert Collins and Ry Cooder and that doesn’t flatter him at all. Check out "Hallowed Ground" (probably the best track here) and the closing "Going Down Slow" for proof. The latter incidentally features some great keyboards courtesy of the wonderfully named Mark "Too Tall" Breen. Amongst his original songs there are a few covers, namely Robert Johnson’s "Crossroads Blues" and Tony Joe White’s "Did Somebody Make A Fool Of You". However, I believe that there are certain songs that should be left well alone and I believe that "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" is one of those songs. While you could never fault his guitar playing, vocally he sounds almost chirpy on occasions. Now I’m not suggesting for a minute that a man has to lose his job, wife and kids before he can sing the blues with authenticity but personally, I would have preferred to hear a little more torture and despair in the vocals. For those who revel in a masterful blues guitar though, and it is certainly that, this is well worth investigating
Brendan Canty -- Bass; Neil Littman -- Drums; Mark Breen -- Hammond Organ & several other fine players from the UK scene, inc. Sam Kelley (voted Best Blues Drummer many times by readers of "Blues in Britain"), and accordion player Charlie Hart (who plays with Chris Jagger's band), and Janos Bajtala on piano, now a regular member of the Guy Tortora Band.
