So what do you get when you cross a legendary classic rock voice with a bunch of talented musicians from France? Answer is the ‘ Shine feat. Terry Reid’ EP. A small collection of songs from an interesting collaboration of artists. Terry Reid sounds like he has taught these promising upstarts a thing or two about good old fashioned ‘Rock N Roll’.
It has all the elements of a good classic rock record. Its riff-tastic but in a very understated and subtle way. Progressive sounds with almost a Dave Gilmour sensibility. Question is does it have the tunes to really stand up to today’s standards?
