Blues Duo, an album featuring accredited blues musicians Dan Hayes and Doug Adamz, is steeped thoroughly in acoustic/traditional blues. Both artists are multi-instrumentalists, working their craft on acoustic guitar as well as sharing singing duties and wailing proficiently on harmonica. This album captures the fresh, relaxed and often-spontaneous sound of one of their well-established live performances. Dan and Doug met in San Francisco, after Doug moved to the bay area from El Paso, TX. Dan was working at The Church Recording Studio when Doug came by to record an album in '77. Dan had already established himself in the heavy psychedelic heyday of sixties San Francisco and had garnered a strong appreciation for the blues. Together the two performed literally thousands of shows in every honky-tonk, saloon and corner bar that northern California had to offer. Both the time spent with their instruments and the time spent interacting musically with each other is largely evident in their music; you simply don't get that good without getting out and sweating on the fretboard. Together they established a stripped-down sound without the need for drums or electric instrument - simply two guys with two guitars and a pocket full of harmonicas writing songs and doing what they were born to do - play the blues.
