Bit O' the Blues.
If you appreciate the classic rock style that was founded by The Beatles and The Stones and built on by The Who, Clapton, Yes and the Motown greats, to name a few, then you'll appreciate the songs of Kurt Benit on this first release, "a bit o' the Blues." Here are nine new songs that combine musicianship with melody that was once the hallmark of FM radio. On his first track, Someday, Benit puts a Latin twist on the beat and combines it with steel guitar in the chorus for an interesting effect. The second track, Goin' Down Blues, is an 8 minute plus guitar workout in the classic blues template. The third track, When I Say I Love You, is a pure rock love song with soaring harmonies as it builds in the final chorus, reminiscent of Badfinger. Six more tracks follow the strong melody pattern laid down by the first three tracks and range from hard rock to reggae. Kurt Benit is currently performing his one man Electric Acoustic Show in his native Pennsylvania. "a bit o' the Blues." Is part of his initial 4 CD release set, which covers rock, country, blues and spiritual music on each themed CD.
