REVIEWS

" Great man. Your voice has a little Bonamassa in it.. which is cool. Love the tune too. KILLER solo! "

- Steve Lukather ( Toto, Michael Jackson, Ringo Starr, G3 ) on the title track " Street Blues "

" On Street Blues SKL reveals himself to be the true triple threat. World class guitar playing and vocals but crucially the songs to sell it all. Awesome. "

- Paul J' O Brien ( Multi-award winning Australian Blues Guitarist )

Street Blues is a beautifully produced album that is a fantastic listening experience. Full of great original songs and choice covers. A perfect vehicle for Simon's clever writing, soulful singing and killer modern blues guitar playing. Love it ! "

- Steve Edmonds ( Guitarist to some of Australia's finest recording artists - Jimmy Barnes, Renee Geyer, Doug Parkinson, Billy Thorpe, Delta Goodrem and more )

" This is a very strong album from a seasoned player who has obviously worked hard. Impressive songwriting, soulful vocalist and a world class guitar player. "

- Darren Jack ( Multi-award winning Australian Blues Guitarist )

" Really dug Simon's CD. A little more sophistication than is usual in blues from Australia."

- Shane Pacey ( Voice of the Bondi Cigars )

Track Name: You Better Quit Your Foolin'
Call me up every time your feelin’ down
Want me baby every times he’s not around
Better quit your foolin’
You better quit your foolin’ baby
You better quit your foolin’ this ain’t no life to live

Send me a letter, almost every day
Told you once babe, not into playin’ your game
Better quit your foolin’
You better quit your foolin’ baby
You better quit your foolin’ this ain’t no life to live

Chorus

Every time, you go that one step further
I can’t save you baby, every time you cry my name lord lord
You better quit your foolin’ this ain’t no life to live

Chorus Repeat
Track Name: Find It In The Next Town
How do you want me to cry
When you say your gonna leave
How do you want me to fly
When your still holding my wings
This ain't the first time baby, that I've been burned like this
And it won't be the last time, that a women like you will really miss me

Chorus

Don't come knocking at my door
When there ain't no score, to settle now
If it's love that your fighting for, you might find it in the next town

And when rain falls outside
It will rain down in your heart
And when you think you've found the one
You still hold me to your heart
But I won't turn back baby, if its the last thing I do
You will be the last one to cry, when I give you these blues oh oh

Chorus

Solo/Chorus...
Track Name: Street Blues
What you want
You will get
What money comes
You will bet
Walking the streets
Like it’s no big deal
Cause this life is short
And you do your will

Chorus

But what is Life?
If your heart can’t feel I said, what is life?
If your heart can’t feel

Don’t have the nerve
To share your fear
Don’t have the strength
To wash all your tears
You just got to scratch
Oh this itch you feel
Oh remember the heat Of your last hot meal

Chorus / Solo / Chorus
Track Name: Little Wing ( Hendrix )
Well, she's walking through the clouds,
With a circus mind that's running wild,
Butterflies and Zebras,
And Moonbeams and fairy tales.
That's all she ever thinks about.
Riding with the wind.

When I'm sad, she comes to me,
With a thousand smiles she gives to me free.
It's alright, she says it's alright,
Take anything you want from me,
Anything.
Fly on little wing

Organ Solo/ Guitar Solo
Track Name: Same Old Face
I believe, my baby’s gonna leave me
I believe, my baby’s gonna go
Back to that same old place
Back to that same old face she calls love

I can feel, I can feel it in her kiss
I can see it, now it’s she I’m gonna miss
Back to that same old place
Back to that same old face she calls love

Chorus

I should have read the signal, I should have read the sign
I should have read you leaving, I should have read the lies
Back to that same old place, back to that same old face
she calls love

Now I’m paying, for a price so hard to bare
and I’m praying, you will always live, to take care
Back to that same old place
Back to that same old face she calls love

Chorus
Track Name: I Smell Trouble
Got a feelin', got a feelin' so cold inside
Got a feelin', got a feelin' so cold inside
She comes home late at night and always wants to fight
I smell trouble

Got a feelin', every time you say goodbye
Got a feelin', every time you say goodbye
Now my touch don't mean a thing, now you have your diamond ring
I smell trouble

Come the morning sun baby, my life has just begun
Come the morning sun baby, my life has just begun
Now I've learnt this hard way, to find a brighter day
Free from her trouble

V3 ( repeats )
Track Name: Troubled Man
Saved your picture for a rainy day
Left this morning on this old highway
With no words to say, my mind did the talking

All the nights that we shared beneath the moon
All the stars that made for big city lights
Never could light up the world as much as your eyes lit my heart

Got no dance left in my step
All I got is this windy weather
From dusk until dawn, all I've sworn in loving you

Got no use in what tomorrow may bring
Got no wine to drown your sorrow and sin
Got no sunshine in your smile, with the ice around your heart,
it won't let me be

Chorus

Troubled man is walking, don't know where to go ?
Troubled man is walking, don't where's his home
Troubled man is walking, don't know where to go ?
Troubled man is walking, don't where's his home,
don't know where to go ?

Chorus
Track Name: Purple Rain ( Prince )
I never meant to cause you any sorrow
I never meant to cause you any pain
I only wanted to one time to see you laughing
I only wanted to see you
Laughing in the purple rain

Chorus

Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain

I never wanted to be your weekend lover
I just wanted to be some kind of friend
Baby, I could never steal you from another
It's such a shame our friendship had to end

Chorus

Honey, I know, I know
I know times are changing
It's time we all reach out
For something new, that means you too
You say you want a leader
but you can’t seem to make up your mind
It's such a shame our friendship had to end

Chorus
Track Name: Only Love
Your tears were like raging sea's in my heart
Never thought I would see this love fall apart
Like a ship wreck out at sea, slowly drifting
Along this coastal memory, that's never ending

She's finally torn the last piece of my heart
Like all the fallen shadows before her
Like an enemy at war, that's played her final call
She leaves my heart bleeding, as the rain begins to fall

As the clouds slowly clear to this blue sky
And we now pay the full price of our crimes
If only we could surrender, to a power above
Never will I forget her, my only love

Outro... Only love, only love
