About John O’Leary
Harmonica wizard John O’Leary is a veteran of the British blues scene, having been a founder member back in the ‘60s of the Savoy Brown Blues Band, who developed British blues into a stadium rock attraction in the USA, and was a member of the John Dummer Blues Band and Mainsqueeze. He has often toured Europe over the years playing with visiting US blues luminaries. For the last couple of decades he has put together successive highly professional line-ups of European talent working clubs and festivals on a regular basis.
This 2-CD comprises the 2004 self-released studio album “Sins”, well-reviewed at the time of original issue, and a hitherto unreleased 2006 ‘live’ album recorded at Mr.Kyp’s club in Poole. The two albums present the top class musicianship of the outfits in the contrasting environments, and are a worthy showcase for one of the great names of British blues.
