Love Spin

Now in her 60s, guitarist/vocalist Debbie Davies is most noted for having been asked by Albert Collins to join his band, earning valuable experience during her three years (1988-90) with “The Master of the Telecaster.” Love Spin—her 13th CD—features her solid playing and chirpy vocals on 11 originals. She and tenorman Terry Hanck really heat it up on her “I Get the Blues So Easy,” where Davies channels Collins and Hanck just flat cooks! She whips out some delicious slide guitar on “Way Back Home,” and puts her heart into “A Darker Side of Me” (“Sometimes I lose control/my past is trying to make me mean/it's my darker side behind the scene … I'm sorry if I scared you but you just saw a darker side of me”). On the title track she urges us to surmount our problems by putting a love spin on them and turning our lives around.
