Rockin' Rudy's

Singer, guitarist and composer Dave Kelly has been a seminal figure on the British blues scene since the 1960s. Sun On My Face, his latest offering, began as a selection of songs from the Dave Kelly Band. Interrupted by the Covid lockdown, he was later joined by multi-instrumentalist Rob Millis and resumed recording in his studio, with an impressive lineup including Paul Jones on harmonica, Lou Stonebridge on keys and Doug Cox on dobro. The material broadened to include the Great American Songbook gem 'Let's Do It, Let's Fall In Love,' Arthur Crudup's 'Mean Old Frisco Blues,' and Hank Williams's 'I Can't Help It If I'm Still In Love With You,' as well as new self-penned songs like the title track, 'Too Happy To Write,' and 'From My Ass In Lagrasse. ' The album also features re-recordings of 'Them Ole Crossroads Blues,' written for the Blues Band's farewell album So Long, a poignant tribute to old friend and mentor Tony McPhee, and Dave Kelly Band favourite 'I Am The Blues', written with Lou Stonebridge
