Peach: The Real Thing

[cover art]

January 2004 CD from L.A.-based contemporary blues artist and songwriter Peach, who was named Blues Artist of the Year in 2001 by the prestigious L.A. Music Awards, followed up with an Award of Excellence in 2002. Critics claim she has vocal qualities similar to Maria Maldaur and Bonnie Raitt.

Peach is joined on The Real Thing by a group of players that includes blues legend Taj Mahal, who duets with Peach on the title track, Garth Hudson of The Band, Paul Barrere (Little Feat), James Gadson, Lee Thornburg, Amos Garrett and Reggie McBride.

Garth Hudson recorded his contributions to The Real Thing in June 2003, with producer Marty Grebb, former music director for Bonnie Raitt, at the controls. Garth can be heard very well on tracks 8 (keyboards), 12 (saxophone), and 13 (accordion).
