Weary And Wired
2007, Blues Bureau Records
Known primarily as a member of the Black Crowes, Ford is a guitarist first who was asked to join the Crowes due to his playing on a 1980’s album by Burning Tree. This is Ford’s 2nd solo disc and a follow-up to 2002’s IT’S ABOUT TIME. This release is pure and honest blues with a southern rock twist.
All 15 tracks contained on the cd are quite good and stick to a set sound. For the most part and for comparison purposes you can hear the influence of early Neil Young and obviously the first couple of Crowes discs. It is a sound that works quite well for Ford and it creates an enjoyable album to listen to. After several listens there was nothing that really stood out and grabbed my attention but however that does not take away from the disc overall. From start to finish it is all a good listen.

An album of 15 solid tracks that you can put on and enjoy all of them Maybe you won’t have them stuck in your head after but you will not get up and walk away disappointed.
