Album Review

Debbie Davies doesn't play straight blues on All I Found, her eighth release as a bandleader and her first for Telarc Records, so much as a kind of blues-inflected country-pop somewhat reminiscent of Bonnie Raitt, only without Raitt's distinctive, drop-dead slide guitar technique. Make no mistake, Davies plays some solid guitar on this album (she got her start playing in Albert Collins' Icebreakers, after all), and she has Arthur Neilson on loan from Shemekia Copeland on second guitar to keep things sizzling on three cuts, but somehow under all that stellar guitar work, several of these songs seem a little tired, and "Troughin'," a humorous ditty about overeating, is downright irritating. The organ-dominated title tune (with Bruce Katz handling the keys) is a delight, though, and features the wonderfully wry vocal hook "I went looking for a good man and all I found was you," which Davies delivers with exactly the right amount of sly and bemused disgust. The feisty instrumental "So What" is another clear highlight, allowing Davies, Neilson, and the rhythm section of Per Hanson on drums and Noel Neal on bass to cut loose a little bit. In the end, All I Found feels like an album in a holding pattern, with enough guitar fireworks to keep it interesting but not enough standout songs to make it particularly memorable.

Customer Reviews

Gotta Luv a Woman With a Guitar

Some of the songs are a bit too light for me, and her vocals and guitar are sometimes too "bright". But, "All I Found Was You" is a combination of some fine blues guitar and the kind of blues vocals that really resonate. "One more time" is in the same category, though more playful. She is the real deal, but I would like to see her do more in the vein of "All I Found Was You." Nevertheless, gotta luv a woman who can make a guitar sing the way she does.
