Ultimate Blue Steel 44
In the late 1990's BS44 emerged as a force in progressive blues rock. Fusing modern blues with rock beats, Blue Steel 44 captured the imagination of young listeners. From the early days of 'Blue Light Special' to the post-modern groove of 'Super-Jealous Woman,' BS44 has been leading the way for independent artists. The Ultimate BS44 collects the twenty greatest songs of Blue Steel, stretching from the days when they recorded their songs in their home studio to the time when they recorded with Grammy-winning producer, song writer, and performer Scott Mathews. This collection features the stylings of BS44's two great guitar gods, PJ Wells and Jeff Grau. Lead singer Matt 'Luther' Wells and bassist Phil Valochik aren't half bad either, so enjoy!
