From out of the wild blue yonder comes Blue Velvo, unloading a gunslinger's round of guitar in the opening tune called Six String Stinger Velvo's fingers shoot some fret-board metal at all comers, with great lyrics,this cautionary tale of a legendary player who goes from top to bottom leads us all into the mysterious world of Blue Velvo. Blending traditional rock and roll rhythms with a convincing retro sound Blue Velvo takes you on a stroll along the golden age of rock and roll, Velvo tips his hat to Jerry Lee with Blue Mamma, Ronnie Dawson on Farmer Delight, and even a pinch of Elvis on Blue Eyes Bawlin. There is also an interesting collision of surf guitar with the flair of the western thematic soundtrack style where Ennio Morricone meets Dick Dale on the songs The Legend of Johnny and Blue Tumbleweed. Miss Treater retains a lounge quality that walks the narrow line of "old" and new as well as the invigorating uptempo songs Natalie, Ancient History, Mad Dog. Ending the CD with a mysterious exploration of things that are best kept to oneself but always seem to manage a way onto tabloid news we find a curios insight into the mind with Taboo.
Blue Velvo contaminates all of these fabled influences and blends them into an absurd mixture that becomes refreshing and distinctively VELVO.
