Didn't Commit The Crime (5:08) Further confirming the universal appeal and contemporary sources of the blues; singer, songwriter and guitarist Johnny Cox from Scotland by way of Canada is the latest and one of the greatest to make his mark on the classic American art form. Emigrating from the British Isles in 1985, he was hit like a thunderbolt by the blues and ever since has been passionately dedicated to the music as evident in every note on his moving, expansive debut. Eleven original tracks traverse the range of human emotions with the unwavering support of Richard Greenspoon (drums, production), Ian De Souza, Malcolm McCuaig, Jerome Tucker and Kenny Neal, Jr (bass), Marty Sammon (keyboards), Ansgar Schroer and Robbie Bellmore (harmonica), Neil Braithwaite (tenor sax) and Shelley Zubot and Brad Roth (backup vocals). Your Love is a jaunty, Stones-y pop rocker evincing the tender expression That your love drives me crazy. Your love never lets me down. Your sweet love is going to save me. Only your love brings me around, delivered in warm, dulcet tones. The blues shuffle High Price to Pay has Cox looking askance at romance: I feel just like a raging hurricane. Youd better close up shop, Ill knock you down just the same, his raunchy guitar helping make his point. Funky wah wah guitar with a nod to guitar god Jimi Hendrix drives the roiling minor key blues-rock of Runaway Train containing the evocative images of Red hot rails in a trail of burnt, black smoke. Hold on tight. It feels like Im on a runaway train and a twisting guitar solo of compressed anticipation. The sensual Latin rhythms and tough unison riffs of New Way nearly combust with intensity while Cox makes clear his redemption with Feels like a new day coming. Born like this, but I wont miss the rideand though I didnt know it, you were there right by my side, his guitar snarling in defiance. Jacking up the energy with the relentlessly swinging shuffle Something for Me, Cox reveals his spiritual side with Theres something for me the day I die. And when it comes a-hauntin, theres no need to cry, the backup vocals Come, come along with me adding a layer of comfort. The title track likewise shows his deep convictions via Talk to me baby, talk to me brother. Talk to me sister, Ive seen you suffer. Its a thin blue line we walk with one another over a buoyant folk rock rhythm. Perpetuating a theme that runs through several compositions, Cox declares Ive wasted too much time thinking about it. Now Im on my way, aint got time to wait and see on the funky blues of My Destination, his lyrical solo belying the strength of his resolve. The urgent boogie and explosive guitar licks of Im Fine emphasize the message I take it one step at a time. I take two steps and shes taking nine. Then she went away like I wouldnt mind the refrain And Im fine, Yeah Im fine functioning as a mantra. The trance-inducing reggae All These Tears finds Cox again showing gratitude for love with All these years, you by my side. All my fears and all my pride. Come on, baby, come with me. You are my sunshine. Oh baby, please. The touching ballad Long Day is a classic tale of longing for home through Because its been so long that it frightens me. Yeah, its been so long that it quiets me. Four hundred miles and Im gonna be with you there standing next to me, his guitar emoting as eloquently as his passionate vocals. The loping shuffle Didnt Commit the Crime ends the infinitely expressive set with Cox giving forth the wry lyric Cuz I had nothing to do with it, I didnt commit the crime. I was at home playing my guitar, and thats my alibi, his crying axe backing his story to the hilt. Johnny Cox sings uninhibitedly about the challenge of the metaphorical blue line while he and his band play on with unquestionable commitment to the therapeutic power of the blues. Completely commensurate with the deep meaning of the music, he shares it with the world through his boundless generosity. ~Dave Rubin, KBA recipient in Journalism
