ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Night Work, by Pittsburgh-based blue-eyed soul singer Billy Price and French blues guitarist Fred Chapellier, was released in Europe in March 2009 on DixieFrog Records.

Fans of Price's work in the 1970s with guitarist Roy Buchanan are going to love Night Work. Roy is one of Fred's biggest influences as a guitarist; in fact, Fred's last CD for DixieFrog was titled A Tribute to Roy Buchanan, and Billy Price appeared on that CD as a guest vocalist.

Mark Wenner, harmonica player of the Nighthawks, plays on three songs--the title song, written by our friend Mike Sweeney from Pittsburgh; a new version of "Who You're Working For," which Price recorded with Billy Price and the Keystone Rhythm Band on the Free at Last CD in 1988; and a new song written by Price, Sweeney, Sally Tiven, and Jon Tiven titled "The Wrong Woman." Also making a guest appearance on the new CD, singing Al Green's "Love and Happiness," is Otis Clay.

Price and Chapellier wrote six songs for the new CD, BP Band keyboard player Jimmy Britton and Price wrote one, and Sweeney contributed a great tribute to O.V. Wright. Speaking of O.V. Wright, no Billy Price CD would be complete without at least one O.V. Wright cover. This time, it's "Don't Let My Baby Ride."

The CD is a true international collaboration. The Billy Price Band play on most of the tracks, but Fred's great band--Abder Benachour on bass, Pat Machenaud on drums, and Damien Cornelis on keyboards--play on three songs, with horns overdubbed by the Billy Price Band horn section.

Night Work
Every effort that made the recording possible gets a 5 star rating. All connections to make the CD stellar were locked in the pocket. Production, recording, engineering, songwriting, singer(s), Guest appearances, song beauty, musicianship, and cohesiveness are outstanding. Billy's work gets better and better with each recording. I thought East End Avenue was as good as it gets, but Billy even topped East End again! Every element in the recording was on the mark. "Night Work" is a basic essential to ANY Soul/Blues collection. In my book, "Night Work" gets the Outstanding Award of Excellence.
