Terry Evens
Live Like A Hurricane (Audioquest Music/Valley Entertainment)

By: Mark A. Lawrence the IV

There's nothing like live Blues, I could be half dead and the humping-thump of the Blues would still make me move till I breathed my last. The album Live Like a Hurricane catches the power of Terry Evens who belts out music that fits somewhere between ball-to-the-wall blues and the life giving soul of 60's Motown. Setting out with the luscious grooves of "I Fancy You." Then attacking the body and soul with the gospel infused voice on "Rooftop Tomcat," that's sure to make women's legs weak, Evens is a voice unbound. The soul singer in Evens, like a phoenix, takes on full its full glory on "The Dark End of The Street," only to trade up for the hopping howler of "Bald Head." This is an awesome album put out by a man with great talent and voice. I'm just sad that I didn't know of his genus sooner. If you love the blues and the sound of the all but lost Motown soul, this is an album you must own. Near as strong a front man as Otis Redding, which isn't something I say lightly, Evens backs himself with an amazing band that makes every song on this album a gut grabbing masterpiece. Make sure that you take the chance to see him when he plays the Waterfront Blues Festival in July. Rating: A+ (Cause there isn't anything higher).
