MOUNTAIN VIEW CD REVIEW
I just finished listening to Paul Miles’ latest CD, Mountain View. This is yet another outstanding release by the Detroit, Michigan Bluesman that hits all the high points that I’ve come to expect from Paul.
Paul Miles is an instantly recognizable “Blues” artist
The CD opens with the title track, “Mountain View”, an inspired homage that embraces elements of Paul’s new home and life in Switzerland and then continues with 11 more excellent songs.
“Who Do You Want” is one of those great “cruise-y”, yet laid-back songs that is pure Paul Miles
The CD closes with “Set Me Free”, a song that is categorically Blues, but with a flavor that is distinctly his own. I love Paul’s message here, which incorporates some of his deep musical influences, including a bit of a Jimi Hendrix vibe in the lyrics, which cut through the BS that sometimes permeates this world, and encouraging us all to be our real, true selves.
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to all the songs on this CD, and can attest that the 12 songs on Mountain View comprise another fine collection by Paul Miles that is worthy of many, many listens!
