Zora Young & Little Mike And The Tornadoes - Friday Night

 

Dit is een release waarbij de blues liefhebber zonder ook maar een noot van het album te hebben gehoord blij van wordt.

Wanneer je de klasse van zangeres Zora Young combineert met een geweldige band als die van Little Mike And The Tornadoes

dan weet je dat er veel te genieten gaat zijn. En na beluistering van het album wordt deze verwachting zelfs overtroffen.

Wat een heerlijk album is ' Friday Night' geworden.

Het is niet alleen de ervaring die dit album zo goed maakt. Maar ook het enthousiasme die zowel Zora Young als zangeres en Little Mike And The Tornadoes als laat excelleren.  

Mijn favoriete nummers op het heerlijk album zijn het openingsnummer ' I've Been A Fool Too Long' , ' I love Chigago' en ' I Am Good ' . Wat mij betreft is het album ' Friday Night '  een must have voor elke blues liefhebber.
