Leslie West to release Sound Check on November 20th CD Review


Leslie West will be releasing his sixteenth solo album Soundcheck via Provogue Records/Mascot Label Group on November 20th . There are moments on this album that just popped out and grabbed me. Right from the beginning Left By The Roadside To Die sets the tone for the album. The fourth track, You Are My Sunshine (w/ Peter Frampton) made my head turn. I just never thought you could do something like that with a song that I am sure we all heard when we were babies and toddlers. Here For The Party, just a straight up heavy blues rocker that can be easily taken as the album anthem. Another heavy hitter is Goin’ Down that features Queen’s Brian May.

I love blazing guitar solos, fast rhythms, pounding drums, fat bass lines and everything else hard rock & heavy metal encompasses. But Soundcheck reminded me why I love music in the first place.
