Album Review: Heavy Blues by Randy Bachman

Fairly Good, Based on 2 Critics

Record Collector - 60
Based on rating 3/5

The Bachman in question is Randy, guitarist/singer of 70s Canadian rock behemoths Bachman-Turner Overdrive, and this is his first solo album of new material in a straightforward rock vein for some time. That said, what makes this album good (when it is good) is the fact that Bachman isn’t just Randy alone, but a rock-solid power trio: Bachman plus Anna Ruddick on bass and drummer Dale Anne Brendon. Musically speaking, it’s a pretty fair three-way split, with Brendon really providing the heart of the record.

AllMusic - 60
Based on rating 6/10

Randy Bachman gives away the game with the very title of Heavy Blues. The guitarist decided to devote himself to over-amplified blues on this 2015 project, teaming with a new rhythm section (one that just happens to be female), and inviting a bunch of friends to add solos to his new songs. Each guitarist -- including his old pal Neil Young, modern-day bluesman Joe Bonamassa, and Peter Frampton -- recorded their solo over a finished mix, which explains the presence of the late Jeff Healey and also how the guitarists don't necessarily seem fully integrated into the album.
