“Witty and literate” to “Fabulous” and “Fantastic” – Reviews of ‘Blueberry Pie’

Wowee!! We have been receiving such a wonderful response to ‘Blueberry Pie’,  our new Starlite Campbell Band British Blues album!

The album is receiving fantastic pre-release radio play support from hundreds of specialist blues and mainstream radio shows throughout the UK, Germany, The Netherlands, France, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Poland, USA, Canada, Spain, Argentina and Australia with more shows being added daily; it’s crazy, beautiful, wonderful!!

Simon and I were also really honoured when we got the news that we had entered straight in at #12 in the IBBA British Blues Charts!! Absolutely brilliant with eight weeks to go before release! We couldn’t have done that without the much valued support of the IBBA radio presenters – thank you so much!! 🙂

The unsolicited words of support that we have also received via radio shows, email and messages has been, put simply…blinkin’ amazing!! (It’s been very emotional at times!!)

“Being a fan of the likes of Peter Green, Back Street Crawler, Robin Trower, Rory Gallagher etc, this is fabulous stuff!” Dave Hammond, Cambridge 105, UK

“Loved It. I thought I was in the TARDIS, real Blues done 60s style. Whoohoo!” John Lukasz, The Soul Kitchen, 3 Way FM, Australia

“Fabulous Stuff! I love it” Ian McKenzie, Blues Before Midnight, KCOR, Kansas City, USA

“Actually my fave record. It won’t leave my speakers. Great tunes!” Klaus Fricke, Journalist, Germany.

“It’s an excellent album and I’m sure you’ll agree having listened to those three superb tracks! It’s good to see new bands coming along and taking the blues forward.” Harry Simpson, Still Got the Blues, Zetland FM, UK

“Stylish and riveting guitar playing” Jakob Wandam, Editor, Blues News, Denmark

“Fresh and modern, it’s witty and literate, it swings and it rocks, and it’s well-nigh perfectly executed. Hell, even the cover photograph is sparky” Iain Cameron, Blues Enthused, UK

Anmeldelse: Starlite Campbell Band: Blueberry pie

Our first review of our new British Blues album ‘Blueberry Pie’ by the Starlite Campbell Band on MUSIKSYN – written by the wonderful, talented and thoughtful Jakob Wandam!

It’s in Danish and I love that!!  Thank you so very very much!!!

We are feeling rather emotional….


Starlite Campbell Band er britisk duo bestående af ægteparret Suzy Starlite (bas, vokal) og Simon Campbell (guitar, vokal). Blueberry pie er parrets første album, om end de tidligere har udsendt ambient-kompositionen ”Happiness in halos” og samarbejdet i hinandens bands.

Blueberry pie er det dog ikke ambient, der er på programmet, men derimod blues og bluesrock. Der lægges hårdt ud med ”Walkin’ out the door” med et Hammondorgel-drevet groove, der er en åbenlys hilsen til Booker T & the MG’s’ klassiker ”Green onions”. Snart sætter nogle onde guitar-licks dog ind, og sammen bygger guitar og orgel en stadig mere intens atmosfære op frem mod et dundrende crescendo. Et rigtig godt åbningsnummer!

Atmosfære er der også masser af på næste nummer, ”I need a light”, stadig med orglet – spillet af Jonny Henderson – i en central rolle, suppleret af en funky basgang, ringlende bækkener og wah-wah-pedal. Det er lækkert…
