Jackhammer Blues is the best in Rick Derringer's evolving mastery of the genre of blues guitar. They just keep getting better and better. Derringer's voice may be naturally better suited to rock & pop than the blues, but he belts it with soul and lets his guitar do the rest of the talking.

It was recorded a couple of years ago and is a great portrait of where Rick is today. The sound is fantastic throughout. The songs are a nice mixture of old and new. Fans of RD probably have noticed a spiritual theme in his latest batch of newer songs but he does still have the chops to rock and roll.

This 1983 Palladium show is a great place to start for anyone not turned on to Derringer's brand of music, though its circumstances were very unfortunate at the time. The gig was put together to raise money when all of the instruments and equipment belonging to Derringer and his band had been stolen, along with the van they were stored in that night, from a Greenwich Village side street.

Rick Derringer follows up his excellent 1996 release, Tend the Fire with another blues-rock CD. While Blues Deluxe doesn't have quite the scope and variety of Tend the Fire, it is nonetheless an excellent CD, as Rick takes a couple more steps farther from rock and closer to the blues.

Rick Derringer plays the blues!!!! There is not one bad track on this album. iI have played many of these songs at various venues and the response is always positive. Rick rocks the blues with a vengance and a style akin to Stevie Ray Vaughan. I am constantly asked where i dug up 'that unknown Stevie Ray song'.

Aside from the fact that Rick Derringer seems to have lost the biggest part of his voice prior to this recording, the album serves as a rocking documentation of Winter in Japan, where he is revered as a star of the highest magnitude. And why not? After all, it was Edgar Winter who led that powerhouse rock & roll band called White Trash in the early '70s. Here, he recreates the sound of that band with "Fly Away" and "Keep Playing That Rock and Roll."
