Dirty Dave Osti Voodoo Guitar Full Album
4 1/2 Stars = Minor Masterpiece
Dirty Dave Osti's, "Voodoo Guitar" album is a bit of a conundrum? His heavy, high energy blues/rock, infused with equal parts, southern rock & 70's heavy metal blooze boogie, sound like many bands, but then again, nobody, but Dirty Dave Osti. The man is an obvious guitar virtuoso, whose writing skills match his playing skills. His gravely emotive voice pastes well onto these songs, like rock in a well worn gravel road. The songs their selves are filled with butt shaking tempos & riffs, welded together by Osti's killer phrasing, tone & sustain, as he plays his guitar from a snails crawl to well constructed lighting fast runs of pure electrifying virtuoso energy. These songs stick in your mind, greasing up the ball bearings of Osti's muse to yours, in a barrage of sonic delight.
If you like Pat Travers, ZZ Top, Foghat, Mahogany Rush, Joe Bonamassa, or newer artist like Black Country Communion, Lance Lopez, & Scarlet Runner, then it's well worth your time to crank this one up!
