The Blues Got Soul
is a dynamic compilation of some of the hottest
Soul, Blues-Rock material recorded on
and her Band The Shy Guys, which was
mostly performed Live at an Open Air Concert
in Duisburg, Germany.
This classic CD, with a bombastic Re-Mastering
of all Songs by "Big Bottom" Bob Lanzner, at Technovoice Mastering in Studio City, CA, is a
timeless work of art, which consists of original
compositions, and covers performed in Jean Shy &
The Shy Guys' own unique style.
The CD includes Songs that many of their Fans
identify Shy and her Shy Guys with, some of
which have become their Trademark at live
concerts for Years. i.e.
One Day a Song that talks about the search
of Peace, Love & Understanding, that Shy wrote
after seeing many homeless people living in
cardboard boxes on downtown Streets in Los
Angeles; The Ray Charles and Joe Cocker Classic
Unchain My Heart
has been a much requested Song at Jean Shy
concerts over the years; their rocking version
of Muddy Waters'
and last but not least Amazing Grace
which is almost celebrated like a national
Since the Live recordings originally were not
made for a CD release, there were no Microphones
set up in the Audience and therefore it is
hardly audible. On those songs Jean Shy
sacrificed any Studio editing to keep the pure,
and powerful thriving Live-Sound which we think
especially makes this CD of great quality.
Jean Shy & The Shy Guys have been performing
to thousands of Fans at major Festivals, Concert
Halls and Churches throughout Europe since 1986,
and are still excited when Fans say: Rock On.
