FIRST REVIEWS FOR - 'Independently Blue'
The Barcodes have found a niche for themselves..........groovy organ/ keyboard and guitar trio....and tasty harp
"I've only time for a short review, so my tip is... cop hold of "Independently Blue", lie back and relax in The Radox Bath of the Blues."
Smiggys Tips - Barrys Mag
"......the sound is Cool and Jazzy,"
Ian McKenzie - Blues In The South
".. I like it ..and have played tracks from it on my shows in Osaka.
Mojo Radio - Japan
"The sound of midnight shadows. Sonic light and shade; B3 and electric piano, with wizard harmonica stylings.Tough stuff, tenderly and imaginatively delivered"
Pete Sargeant -- 'Blues Matters' UK
'.....Special music from the Barcodes included them in my Ray Charles tribute show...three great tracks"
D J Krono - "Boom Boom" -VFM RADIO 91,6 MHz - Vinkovci / Croatia.
"Thirteen great tracks from this Blues and Jazz trio. It rocks along and brings to mind the image of a smoke - filled jazz club. Definitely one that will be in the "now playing" section of my cd collection for quite sometime to come."
Paul Stiles -- 'Blues in Britain' UK
"Their long-awaited new album which is dominated by their unique Jazz/Blues feel. Plenty of Alan Glen's harmonica on this.
Ken Smith -- 'Red Lick Records' Wales
"Cool hammond-fuelled blues with ex-Yardbird Alan Glen."
"Have added it to my play list - blues music with soul"
