Guitarist Rick Derringer explores the deep blues of blues greats on "Jackhammer Blues", where he covers songs by Mike Bloomfield, Albert King, Elmore James, B.B. King, Otis Rush, Mose Allison and others. As you would expect from Derringer, he lights up the fretboard with smoldering lines and explosive leads - passion and conviction are just two of the common watchwords associated with his playing. "Somebody Loan Me A Dime" is a great ten-minute plus slow blues that will have you crying in your beer (or root beer). Derringer has mastered the vicious, cutting blues style; if you're in the mood, check out "Jackhammer Blues" for plenty of examples.
