Slip Into A Dream, Dave Weld & The Imperial Flames’ second CD with Delmark Records, surpasses Weld’s first one on the label. The new CD, “…a first-rate set of Chicago-styled blues and soul,” includes his current, longtime band members Jeff Taylor (drums/vocals), Monica Myhre (Garcia, vocals/piano/harp), Dave Kaye (bassist) and Harry Yaseen (piano), along with special guests Bobby Rush adding harp on two songs, Greg Guy (Buddy Guy’s son) adding guitar on one and Sax Gordon on tenor and baritone sax.
On Slip Into A Dream, the songwriting team of Weld/Myhre has reached new heights with the sublime title track, the self-described “Sweet Rockin’ Soul” and the crossover “Sweet Love (Dulce Amor).” Other new songs include “Looking For A Man,” “May Be Right May Be Wrong” and “Tremble.”
“Flaming, stirring passionate guitar parts, beautiful harmonies…”
In a review of Dave Weld’s first Delmark CD, Living Blues magazine said: “Burnin’ Love is a raucous monster…Weld performs wonderfully wild guitar… their sweet vocal harmonies are as animated as Weld’s wicked and rockin’ slide guitar.”
