Long Tall Deb is the illegitimate love child of Al Green and Gladys Knight
(Long Tall Deb and Colin John) have made an inspired album with “Dragonfly”. Blues, surf guitar, Americana: it’s all there and it’s great!
Colin John, the fretboard worrier from Hawaii possesses jaw-dropping skill displayed by his command of quality blues, filthy funk and soul featuring the sort of plank-spanking heroics that Hendrix would have made if he joined a surf band.
Long Tall Deb made the stage her own with a devil-may-care stage presence and a voice that sounded like Koko Taylor
...and then Long Tall Deb starts to sing. All guests are under her spell: a tremendous voice
Deb has a one in a million voice and excellent instincts as a performer.
This is what Jimi Hendrix might have sounded like had be abandoned the rat race, moved to Hawai’i, taken up surfing and let the sun and waves bestow their laid-back highs.
