Vargas Blues Band – Love, Union, PeaceVargas Blues Band – Love, Union, Peace
Released by Ardent Studios in 2005

All original music by except for “God Give Me Strength” which Elvis Costello/Burt Bacharach wrote. There is a heavy Carlos Santana influence in some of the licks. Super instrumentals but the lyrics try to tell too much of a story and so the cuts get a little lengthy.

The talented band consists of Steve Potts on Drums, David Smith on Bass, and Ernest Williamson on Keys. Also on this CD are guests Jack Bruce (Cream), Glen Hughes (Deep Purple), Alex Ligertwood (Santana) and Elliot Murphy, Devon Allman, Reese Wynans (SRV”s Double Trouble)

All in all a very good CD and it gets a 4.2 on the STLBluesometer.

Later – Gator.
