The sample track is a bit different style than what I am used to from him but I kinda like it on first listen.
I would think there will be other tracks that are more typical EG
Can't wait to hear the album.

That should be great show. Gary is a dear friend of mine and is touring supporting Beth Hart now. Would have been with him but my daughter is getting married

Because of his commitments with Beth Hart, Gary can't manage the Eric Gales support slot.

Re: Eric Gales

We went to the Mammoth Bluesapalooza taking a chance on the smoke from the big fires not being bad, since the wife suffers from asthma. The smoke moved in Saturday, but we hung until Eric’s set was finished, (she had a mask) then left for our hotel room and departed the next morning missing the last day. Wow! Worth the trip and what a treat. I got to the rail and grabbed the spot right in front of the mic, getting superb vids of the whole set. One song I got which I put up on F/B , Oh Baby Please, was shared by Eric and his label Provogue and just has gone viral by blues standards. Over 1K views/hour and increasing. Hope you can see this vid. It is epic. https://www.facebook.com/rick.beck.31/p … on_generic
I got to chat with him after the set, I had on a vintage tee of his and he was totally stoked and remembered me and the vids I’d put up from his Chart House gigs 9 years ago. He’s turned his life around and has been clean and sober for 2 years, dumping his gangster lifestyle. His beautiful wife LaDonna plays percussion and sings backup vocals in the band, while helping him stay on the path.

Re: Eric Gales

Where is the like button when you need it ? That was really good and a good job on the video. I see why it has gone viral, wish he would come play close to us sometime, should not be too long now cause EJ is coming in October

Too bad the little lumix’ audio couldn’t capture the massive sub audio he had running. The bass player controlled it and he’d key a downswoop that ramped down from 30 hz at strategic moments that would rattle your teeth and raise the hair on your neck. The driver was under the stage and the effect was mind-blowing in the mix.

Re: Eric Gales

I saw Eric Gales back in April and it was fantastic.  I'd been a little burned out on blues/rock the last couple of years but he totally restored the faith.  Amazing live performance, great band, great showmanship.  He's the kind of performer who isn't done justice by Youtube videos.  Highly recommended.

Re: Eric Gales

I picked up his new album The Bookends yesterday and it's fantastic.  Really digging it. Funky, heavy, soulful, lots of variety.  I haven't had a lot of time to dig in, but super strong first impression.

Re: Eric Gales

I agree Zeyer. I have been digging it !!

Re: Eric Gales

I have listened to a lot of it and indeed it is a winner on all accounts, will be seeing him this coming Friday here in Birmingham AL
