Jay Gordon continues to shake the planet with his onslaught of Electric Voodoo Blues. When you listen to this CD you will see how Gordon has moved the blues forward into the 21st Century, infusing the music with the fire and power of rock while carving out his own place in the music world.

Jay Gordon“Blues Venom – No Cure” features songs like “Dockery’s Plantation” (for Robert Johnson), “World Blues,” “Slow Burn/Biker Mama,” “Red-Hot Tempered Woman” and more. There’s also a bonus track in honor of the late, great Phillip Walker, “Whisky Women And Fast Cars.” Gordon and Walker had previously collaborated on a 1994 CD together entitled Jaywalkin.

Joining Gordon on this CD is Sharon Butcher (bass-vocals); Rich Gordon Lambert (drums); Harlen Spector (Hammond B3 and piano); Mario Ramirez (younger brother of the great Ritchie Valens) on harmonica; and Rich Wenzel (also on Hammond B3). “Blues Venom – No Cure” was created for all Blues-Rock fans everywhere.
