This is the debut album from this five-piece Belgian band and they nail their colours firmly to the mast. Right from the opening heavy, dirty riff, it is obvious that these guys have been listening to the 60s UK blues boomers for a long time, and the repertoire serves to underline this.

One time UK staples such as ‘Train Kept A-Rollin’’ (most likely from The Yardbirds), ‘Boom Boom’, (The Animals, if not John Lee Hooker’s own version), ‘The Hunter’ (Free), ‘Oh Pretty Woman’ (John Mayall – and yes, these last two titles were initially Albert King recordings), early soul singer Jimmy Hughes’ ‘Neighbor Neighbor’ (probably via Spencer Davis) and others are performed in a tough blues-rock style, with echoes of those 60s bands – and Jimi Hendrix in places, whilst the band’s sole original composition, ‘Mean Ol’ Woman Blues’ sounds like it should have been issued around late 1970.

Initially Alfie Falckenbach’s singing sounds rather laboured, but the ear quickly adjusts and within a few tracks, it fits perfectly, as he seems to be trying for a vintage Robert Plant approach. Nice to note too the inclusion of Spooky Tooth’s ‘Better By You, Better By Me’ – it cost 12/6d on the sampler “Nice Enough To Eat” (and that is definitely showing my age!).

Guitarists Paul “Shorty” Van Camp and Fonzie Verdickt have the chops to match, and the rhythm section of bassist, harpman and acoustic guitarist Frans Ruzicka and founder member/ drummer Georges Milikan knows just what is required. If these songs were the soundtrack to your youth, you’ll definitely enjoy this; if not, and you enjoy the classic UK blues-rock sound, buy it anyway! ---Norman Darwen, bluesinthenorthwest.com

Unapologetically rooted in the British Blues-Rock boom of the late 60's and 70s, steeped in the tradition of Leslie West's Mountain, The Jeff Beck Group and early Led Zeppelin, Blues Karloff explore the outer reaches of the sounds that shaped this musical era. On their debut album Ready For Judgement Day, which was released in October 2014, the band saluted some of the Blues legends that every member of Blues Karloff had been listening to since childhood. The album featured songs by Robert Johnson, Jimmy Reed, John Lee Hooker, Albert King, Howlin' Wolf, and Muddy Waters; vintage Blues gems revisited, like the British Blues-Rock greats such The Yardbirds, The Pretty Things, Savoy Brown, John Mayall and his Bluesbreakers and Fleetwood Mac did back in the sixties and seventies; blistering interpretations of classic Blues anthems reinterpreted in their own distinctive fashion, introducing a contemporary flavour to the genre. The album was all about the influences; Black and White, British and American, that shaped the musical tastes of the band members in their youth. Blues Karloff then road-tested material for their second album, which they started recording in February, and finished early September 2015. The band again revisited and remodelled both classic and lesser-known tracks by the likes of Willie Dixon, Jimmy Reed, Bobby Womack, and Tom Hambridge (who has been referred to as The White Willie Dixon by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee Buddy Guy). They also recorded their version of Looking Tired a great Jagger-Richards Blues number which the Rolling Stones originally recorded in 1965 during the sessions for the Out of Our Heads album at RCA Studios in Hollywood, but which until today remains officially unreleased. The remainder of the tracks on Light And Shade are songs written by various members of the band themselves, sensing the need to gradually carve out their own identity as well as demonstrating their developing skills as tunesmiths. ---Editorial Reviews, amazon.com
