O’s Notes: Albert plays the blues. He tells the story as the lead vocalist and highlights the message with passionate feelings on guitar. “Loan Me A Dime” is an excellent example. This followed by the rockin’ blues on “Godfather Of The Blues”, one of five Castiglia originals. We also liked his rendition of “Night Time Is The Right Time” and the ode to baseball legend “Catfish” Hunter. Guest artist Rio Clemente (organ) puts the ‘church’ into “Need Your Love So Bad”. Ken ‘Stringbean’ Sorensen ads harmonic on a few tracks as well notably “Blues For Evan” capping a good set! Castiglia has staying power on the blues front.
