CD Review: Blues Artists Popa Chubby Delivers "The Catfish" For His Latest Release

Blues guitarist, singer, songwriter Popa Chubby recently released his new studio album titled "The Catfish." It falls in-line with the other 20-plus studio and live albums he has released over the course of the last twenty years. His latest release mixes together ten new original songs with two classic covers. Popa Chubby adds a bit of funk and R&B to his blues style on the openers "Going Downtown See My Old Gal Sue" and "Good Thing." He turns the Buddy Holly classic "Bye Bye Love" into a bluesy, reggae instrumental, before returning to the pure, slow blues of "Wes Is More" as Popa Chubby gets to show-off the talents of his band. 
 
Popa Chubby pay homage to the late, great Lemmy Kilmister with the up-tempo rocker "Motorhead Saved My Life." While the song may feel out of place in Popa's catalog, it's a great energy builder, before slowing back down for the "Blues Of Charlie." The album finishes with the guitar-boogie shuffle of "The Catfish" and an acoustic cover of Robert Johnson's "C'mon In My Kitchen."
