But Done In Style Well strangely enough the title of the album and track itself may very well suggest it was what Bill Price was here for rather than Roy himself but all is not too bad at all, and it's quite a different album from Roy in relation to his previous two albums, perhaps more Nephesh - Roy Buchanan - Thats What I Am Here For/Rescue Me (CD) a band thing and could quite easily be associated with an album done by the Allman Brothers rather than that of Roy Buchanan.
For Roy's 3rd album That's What I Am Here For to which it is slightly wrongly titled here on Amazon he very much had a change of personal and Dick Heintze on piano and keyboards was the only member he kept from the Snake Stretchers, and with him here are Bill Price - Vocals. The album itself kicks off on great rocking style with "My Baby Say's She's Gonna Leave Me" and is closely followed by a cover of a song Hendrix covered himself namely "Hey Joe" to which Roy does a super job of, but once again I prefer him doing this one live, and for me the parts where you can hear him rip the hell out of the guitar on his Jack Jones somehow do not feel right to be done this way on a studio album.
Though for many this may be the fave of the album, but oddly enough it's perhaps the odd track out of the bunch here, but it does help the album rock for sure. The album then continues to pick up in the same style as the opening track with "Home Is Where I Lost Her" and funks up with "Rodney's Song" and very much continues in the same style throughout the rest of the album, and even "Roy's Bluz" as got a touch of the Honky Tonks and does not sound as bluesy as he Nephesh - Roy Buchanan - Thats What I Am Here For/Rescue Me (CD) do.
Overall That's What I Am Here For is a very consistent album and the material upon it is very much all done in the same style, and perhaps a bit like a cross between The Allman Brothers and the James Gang in some ways.
The album flows very well for how it's done and there is nothing remotely contrasting about it in it's style which is something his first two albums definitely had. It can either be a good thing or a bad thing really, and here this is perhaps more of a band project than just Roy Nephesh - Roy Buchanan - Thats What I Am Here For/Rescue Me (CD). But Roy still does the business on it in parts and I quite like it myself, and it stands out more of an album in comparison to his 1st album that's for sure, even if there is not really a Buchanan classic here.
It gets 4 stars from me, even if perhaps to some it may very well sound outdated now, but I still live in the 70' s so it suits my taste that 's for sure, and it's got a good bit of soul and grit in it, and I cannot find nothing really disappointing on the album at all.
Apparently the Stones once wanted to sign up Roy for the band, such was their admiration for his skills, but you could never see him fitting in with their particular house rules - he was never going to be a Ronnie style stooge to Keef.
Make no mistake, he was a fantastically gifted guitarist with a sound all of his own. Perhaps part of the appeal was the fact that he couldn't possibly look less than a contemporary axe hero.
A tubby beardo given to appearing on stage in check sports jackets and beige slacks, with his Telecaster strapped up just below nose level, you can safely bet he wasn't Slash's style guru. Cynics might even let loose a quiet chortle on seeing him - until, of course, he started playing. Features Interviews Lists. Streams Videos All Posts.
