Review -- DEVIL TAKE ME DOWN -- Jimmy Zee

DEVIL TAKE ME DOWN
Jimmy Zee
Indie
7-out-of-10

Devil Take Me Down earned Jimmy Zee a nomination in the blues category from the Western Canadian Music Awards so it has some pedigree.
Zee, who hails from B.C., assembled some fine musicians to put together this disk including a blues bud of mine Harp Dog Brown. It's always cool when he's playing 'harp' on a tune.
As for Zee himself he has a bluesy, growly-flavoured voice, and in the genre that is always a good thing in terms of sound.
With Devil Take Me Down Zee has a solid blues album featuring 13-songs, all of them self-penned except for a remake of the classic Roxy Roller.
In writing the dozen tunes Zee shows a well-experienced pen, and turns out some fine material, the title cut among them.
Bad End Boys, Show Me and Boston City are songs which caught my ear.
Overall a blues disk out of Western Canada I enjoyed from start-to-finish.
