I’ve been hooked on Starlite
Campbell Band
since reviewing their first album, Blueberry Pie five
years ago.  That was such an amazing
album.  For their third release, wife and
husband Suzy Starlite, and Simon Campbell took their songs on the
road across the UK and wove together this delightful eight-track album of live
performances with drummer Steve Gibson (Buzzcocks, Jack Bruce) and three
organists Jonny Henderson (Matt Schofield, Kirk Fletcher), Christian
(the Liam Gallagher Band), and Josh Phillips (Procol Harum).

With a strong opener called “Brother”
Campbell’s 2011 solo album Thirtysix, the music kicks off with
a funky beat backed by swirling keys and a driving rhythm.
  Their hot guitar licks and buttery bass sound
 From that same solo album,
they break out two more smokin’ blues-rockers: “Preacher of Love” and “Misgivings”.
 They both sound magnificent. 

“Said So” from their 2021 Language
of Curiosity
album, ushers the listener through time and space with
brush-strokes of
The Kinks, Allman Brothers, and The Who,
culminating into a mind-blowing psychedelic treat.
  With Josh Phillips behind the keys, they
close the record with a beautiful cover of
Procol Harum’s “Whiter Shade
of Pale”.
  Campbell’s vocals are

Infectious hooks, meaty jams,
and innovative song-writing stand front and center, making
Starlite Campbell
Live album an exhilarating listen.  It keeps my full attention from beginning to end.
