Excellent musical document on this outstanding "blues" guitarist based out of upstate New York.

Welcome to the world of one serious Telecaster Blues Master.... Just when you think you've heard it all, out of the blue(s) comes a righteous blues guitar slinger named Dave "Texas Son" D'Angelico. Dave has been slingin' his trademark TELECASTER in various blues bars and juke joints in Upstate New York over the past couple of decades, travelling to other cities up & down the east coast through Texas, and has opened for (or jammed with) Roomful of Blues, Savoy Brown, Mick Clarke, Elvin Bishop, Robert Gordon, Ronnie Earl, Duke Robillard, Anson Funderburgh, Robben Ford, Paul Delay Band, Joe Beard plus many others. There is no denying just how good Dave D'Angelico can burn on the blues. He takes a mature, traditional approach with a relaxed air of authority, combining a very original style inspired by his many influences (although not a copycat) and a killer guitar tone to boot - and he does it all with only his fingers, hence the name of one of his discs - "BAREHAND BLUES". Originally influenced by artists like Johnny Winter, Billy Gibbons, Clarence Edwards. As well as being a great downhome blues Dave likes to rock out! If you're into Roy Buchanan, Johnny Winter, Billy Gibbons, S.R.V., Clapton, Albert Collins, Duke Robillard, then you need to tune into the guitar magic of Dave "Texas Son" D'Angelico. Check out Texas Son's "Gun Barrel Blues" album. [All tracks @ 320 Kbps: File size = 182 Mb]
