"Gypsy Blues" is the blues side of the double album "50", helping Dusty celebrate 50 years as a performer! Dusty wrote the title song in honour of his Telecaster, "Gypsy".
Gypsy Blues Album: $12.00 Canadian ($10.00 US)
Gypsy Blues Vocal (2:41): Step inside a gypsy caravan / tell me my future, 'cause I'm a lonely man… Rather spooky-flavoured slow blues with unusual intro and tasty lead guitar. Inspired by Dusty's Telecaster, "Gypsy".
2B2 Funky (3:28): Mid-tempo, funky blues instrumental with a touch of nastiness. Funky fuzz guitar
with basic rock structure. This one is actually a twist on a country song that Dusty wrote called "B-22"!
Black Alley Blues (3:26): There's a rumble in Black Alley / at least there's gonna be... Play it loud! Mean 12-bar blues with belligerent vocals and a wicked fuzz tone to the guitar.
Merci Beaucoup Blues (3:09): You went away and left me way back when / now you want to come back and try it again... Lighthearted, jazzy blues vocal about that lost love wanting to give it one more
Evil Wah-Man (4:01): Down and dirty extended blues instrumental with a funky beat and amazing wah-wah guitar. Who says guitars can't talk?
Rising Sun Blues Instrumental (6:00). Otherwise known as "House of the Rising Sun", this intense blues-rock instrumental proves that a song done in waltz time doesn't have to be wimpy. Extended slow jazz-blues with a powerful but melodic lead guitar.
Havana Blues (4:17): Extended Latino blues instrumental with a rough edge and a driving beat. Blues music with an attitude. Has a touch of Santana (I hope).
Good Love Gone Bad (2:59): Moody, slinky blues instrumental combines a touch of meanness with a feeling of regret. Very tasty lead guitar.
Blueswalk (4:05): Tasty, laid-back extended blues instrumental with notable walking bass. Has a cool, almost insolent tone.
I Found A Girl (3:05): I found a girl and she has got such tender ways / I'm looking forward to much better days… A loving tribute to some of the early '60s R&B vocals. Fifties-flavoured blues/R&B with hopeful vocal and that distinctive Telecaster tone on the lead guitar.
Stage Door Blues (3:57): I'm flattered that you waited / outside the stage door just to talk to me... Acoustic blues with ironic vocals and a country flavour, about a traveling musician dealing with his
fans. Another side of life on the road.
Gypsy Blues Instrumental (2:42). Rather spooky-flavoured slow blues with tasty lead guitar. A little different feel than the vocal version.
