Think of a piano style and it's in the bag! The Conjure Bag that is. What an apt name for this CD.

And it's not just the piano but the music itself is a mix of so many varied styles of blues and boogie.

I had a great deal of trouble figuring which category to put this CD in.

It is definitely blues, but it's also got rhythm. Some tracks have a country tinge and a gospel feel is in there as well. Phew, what a test.

I was audibly transported to a whitewashed church hall with dusty wooden floors or a sleazy old delta bar. It's a time travel delta disc.

Don's legendary piano talent is shown so well here. Stride, boogie, ragtime and a little bit of R&B just for good measure.
His experience over the years with so many different artists has led him on his musical journey to this time now with Rob Grosser for Dr Don's Double Dose.

The equally awesome Rob Grosser is no stranger to the music industry. From the early days of 'The News' and 'The Aliens' (Follow That Girl) to name a few to Jon Lord and Jimmy Barnes and more recently Tim Gaze, Pete Wells and Lucy De Soto, Rob is a drumming delight.
He has an easy style and is adaptable to almost any music genre as is evident in this small but extremely satisfying morsel.

I would love to catch these two live to see the washboard playing.

My favourites would have to be 'Keep Your Hands Off Her', 'Saint James Infirmary' and the laid back 'It Ain't Gonna Worry My Mind'. In all these tracks Don's vocal capabilities also shine through. So different in tone and style, amazing.

I will get details on how to get hold of this CD.

I have at least three people who instantly come to mind who would just love it.
