1 - THORN, PAUL - TOO BLESSED TO BE STRESSED - (CD) 
BLUE ROSE


Paul Thorns new album Too Blessed To Be Stressed stakes out new territory for the popular roots-rock songwriter and performer. "In the past, Ive told stories that were mostly inspired by my own life," the former prizefighter and literal son of a preacher man offers. "This time, Ive written 10 songs that express more universal truths, and Ive done it with a purpose: to make people feel good."Which explains numbers like the acoustic-electric charmer "Rob You of Your Joy," where Thorns warm peaches-and-molasses singing dispenses advice on avoiding the pitfalls of life. And then there is the title track which borrows its tag from a familiar saying among the members of the African-American Baptist churches Thorn frequented in his childhood. "Id ask, How you doin, sister? And what Id often hear back was, Im too blessed to be stressed." In the hands of Thorn and his faithful band, whove been together 20 years, the tune applies its own funky balm, interlacing a percolating drum and keyboard rhythm with the slinky guitar lines beneath his playful banter.Thorns trademark humor is abundant throughout the album. "Backslide on Friday" is a warm-spirited poke at personal foibles. "I promised myself not to write about me, but I did on Backslide," Thorn relates. The chipper pop tune is a confession about procrastination, sweetened by Bill Hinds slide guitar and Thorns gently arching melody. "But," Thorn protests, "I know Im not the only one who says hes gonna diet and just eat Blue Bell vanilla ice cream on Sundays, and then ends up eating it every day!"

2 - THORN, PAUL - WHAT THE HELL IS GOIN ON? - (CD) 
BLUE ROSE


Paul Thorn took an unexpected detour on the road to recording a follow-up to his most successful release, 2010's Pimps and Preachers. The Collection, entitled What The Hell Is Going On? finds Thorn putting his own gritty rock stamp on some of his favorite songs. There are some names familiar to Americana fans (Buddy Miller, Ray-Wylie Hubbard), some lesser-known (Foy Vance, Wild Bill Emerson) and some surprises. The Buckingham/Nicksaan tune Don'T let Me Down Again originated on that duo's debut, not during the Fleetwood Mac era, while the Paul Rogers?Free song that Thorn chose to cover is an obscure one, Walk In My Shadow.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Don't Let Me Down 02. Snake Farm 03. Shelter Me Lord 04. Shed A Little Light 05. What The Hell Is Goin On? (feat. Elvin Bishop On Guitar) 06. Small Town Talk 07. Walk In My Shadow 08. Wrong Number 09. Bull Mountain Bridge (feat. Delbert Mcclinton On Vocals) 10. Jukin' 11. She's Got A Crush On Me
