REVIEWS: "New Tricks From An Old Dog"

Reviews on "New Tricks From An Old Dog"

"Bob's new CD, 'New Tricks From an Old Dog' has it all. Driving 70's guitar work, swirling Hammonds, tasty rhythm & blues...... If you can't identify with at least one of Bob's songs, you haven't lived and you need to get the silver spoon out of your mouth...... Fans of '70s Classic Rock couldn't do better than to add 'New Dog' to their collection...... This is a ready-made classic!...... These songs sound wonderfully dated! And at the same time, refreshingly new...... They don't write this kinda stuff anymore, and it's too damn bad!...... Don't let his modesty fool you, this CD rocks!...... "Screw Yourself For Me" is a perfect example of Bob's ability to balance The Cliche against The Profound...... Can't wait for his first confrontation with David Letterman."
THE MUSIC MINER

"This is full-blown dad rock. Fusing bar blues and Metallic guitar leads with a country line-dance beat, Bob Ketchum (who incidentally has worked with '80s Swiss Metal band Krokus) now plays the kind of music that came out of your old man's radio when he was cleaning leaves out of the rain gutter."
Eric Shea - LISTEN.COM

NICELY DONE !
Bob Ketchum is a very good artist that deserves alot or attention and respect. Great song-writing and intelligent song-writing ideas. I am duly impressed, indeed! Much love and encouragement from the PStarR family circle!!!

Several cuts from the album have been getting getting airplay in various regions of the country. KSPQ (Q94) In West Plains, Missouri has been playing select songs on Robert Lynn's weekly blues show. Also, my old friend Clyde Clifford is playing cuts with alarming regularity on his "Beaker Street" program on MAGIC 105 radio in Little Rock, Arkansas. Be sure to tune in to these great stations whenever you are in their listening area.

"You Can't Take It With You" - - -

"This song is such a tell-tale story about everyday life. I can definitely relate to this one. This fellow Bob, has got such a gift for lyrics,and he seems he writes from his heart and personal experiences, which in my opinion, is the best way to write songs. There's not a human being alive that could not relate to what he's saying in this particular song, because everyone has these events one time or another in their lives. And I think relating to people where they live, (which this song accomplishes) reaches the masses and this artist's work should not be overlooked! He writes songs that anyone in any age range could relate to. I believe those Mammoth Recording Companies, ala "Big Nasty Brothers" should open their eyes and see the talent that this man has gathered over all the years he's been in the business and give his music a SERIOUS LISTEN TO!! I definitely would buy his CD,and I've friends who feel the same way. So Listen up Big Guys, this one is for you!!!! Don't miss out on this song!"

"You'll never change Bob and that is a compliment. Enjoyed the music and of course the attitude. Any of you out there that need a good producer/engineer and studio, Bob is the man! Keep up the fun."

"Valentine Blues" - - -

"Excellent blues... Good implementation of blues. Is that a real choir? It screwed with my head, if not, its a really good choir patch. The guitar was fairly tasteful. Good tone. Vocals excellent too, I loved when the Hammond came in on the guitar solo. Very cool sound."
nicneufeld - Raytown, Missouri - GARAGEBAND.COM

"Robert Cray feel. I like it. Guitar Player phrases well. Good vibrato. He has been playing awhile. The cliches are all there ..but they are his own style. Dry mix on the vocals adds a bit of tension to the tune that I like. My best score so far. Nice work."
CaptDoji - Biloxi, Mississippi - GARAGEBAND.COM

"Oh, Yeah! I love the track! It's really hard to get a good blues track anymore. You guys nailed it! Very well arranged and put together. Good luck!"

"The guitar is (TALKIN)!! your vocals are cookin with HOT greese..and the band is way way in the pocket. I loved this."
srvtone - Carthage, Mississippi - GARAGEBAND.COM

"Loved it! You guys have it all together and delivered a first rate track. The start worried me; the intro seemed loose but from the vocal on everything tied together. The (Hammond?) organ brought more depth and interest into the song than straight-ahead guitar licks. The vocalist delivered! Good bass line. I found the guitar part overwhelmed the vocal just a tad toward the end but it was a tremondous track."

dodik124 - Moscow, Russia - GARAGEBAND.COM

"Here's a very good valentine message. Very good musicianship. Strong vocals. This typical blues song is nicely done. The danger in this genre is that it all sounds so similar unless there is something very fresh mixed in. The background chorus of vocals provides it here. I like the straight ahead nature of this song."
Tomdaddy - Pennington, New Jersey - GARAGEBAND.COM

"This is the song I'm going to choose in this review. I must confess I thoroughly enjoyed both selections, but I will choose this one. The vocals blended with the guitar and keyboards just right. This song sang (if that makes any sense). The one part about this song I didn't like was the ending. It was too abrupt. I wanted to listen to it longer."

"George Thoroughgood meets B.B. King, they have a few and bitch about Record Company Execs."
louiesbox - RIFFAGE.COM

"Someone tell Durst there's another way to vent. Dig this jam. The music, in the classic song structure is the kind of thing I've seen thousands of times, but for the lyrics (slap-nuts funny) it works perfectly. Dig the !serious! delivery of those words. Decent vox. I'd like to hear more--if every song is like this, it's a one-dimensional act, but could be a favorite of a live show full of diverse rock."

"Beautiful Blues - Lovely live and raw sound you have here which is really essential to a good classic blues song. You sound so comfortable with this song as though you are really enjoying yourself. Perfect, really tight and together performance with vocals performed with real heart and really confident lead guitar licks. If I had to be critical it sounds like you recorded the band live in one room and the singer was at the back. In other words too much reverb on the vocal. He should be right up front with that performance."
