Another Electic blues album from the guitarist famous for his cameo in The Blues Brothers. The Blues Don’t Frighten Me by Matt “Guitar” Murphy.

Take You Higher by Dynamic Hepnotics

It’s hard not to tap the foot when this band plays. A soul, funk, rock album by an Australian band.

Week Commencing 2nd October

Dynamic Hepnotics – Take You Higher.

This was a successful eighties rock/soul/funk band with founding member “Continental” Robert Susz, that produced a terrific album in Take You Higher. Continental Bob moved on to form “The Mighty Reapers” after the Hepnotics folded, however he left behind a terrific album that has a heap of catchy soul tunes on it. Some hits in “Gotta be the wrong way to love” and “Soul kind of Feeling”.

It’s an album that can be missed and folks would be none the wiser if they hadn’t heard those great songs. The Mighty Reapers continued this same sound afterwards and Robert Susz also plays and gigs around the country.
