Vance Kelly - How Can I Miss You When You Won't Leave

Somethin' new from our favorite Unky. Kinda hard to resist.

"(2017/Wolf Records) 14 Tracks - 2017 release from the blues award winner. The album was recorded in Chicago and features a mix of blues, R&B and soul. Vance Kelly has performed regularly at various music venues in the Chicago area, chief among them being the 1815, Checkerboard Lounge, Rosa's Lounge, Kingston Mines, Buddy Guy's Legends, and B.L.U.E.S. A music journalist noted of Kelly, "Like Primer, he combines an enquiring eye for a song with a moderately conservative taste in sound, producing music that lives by the principles of classic Chicago bar blues yet is not enslaved by the past".

Just finished listening to this one - WOW! Great album. Some of his guitar licks remind me of our friend, Walter Wolfman Washington.

If the cover is any indication, he dresses similarly to Walter too.

Can't go wrong with a Wolf Record.... TX!

Yep - his sartorial stylings are like Walter's - gotts see the shoes though! Album does fad at the end - the last 2 cuts are repetitive and one sounds disco-ish. Otherwise - damn strong record.
