"...Brown is massively funky, and uncorks truckloads of energy..." - Michael Molenda, Editor, Guitar Player Magazine

"Blues and Friends" radio show host Bertwin Bijleveld reviews "Revolution Rhapsody"

The Bushmaster has done it again. Guitar axe Gary Brown and his band have just finished another great cd. He’s real honest and doing his thing. Brown is not abandoning his musical roots and he has got an important message to say.

You can hear the spirits of Jimi Hendrix, Otis Redding, Stevie Ray Vaughan, James Brown, Hubert Sumlin, among many others, shining their light and if you don´t talk after the last track of the cd you can hear the big ones in the sky give it up for the Bushmaster. 

Every time I play this cd it gets better. Although the first time I listened to it was good already. This music is like a big painting; I always hear new things, yet I also feel at home with familiair guitar licks. I also like the rhythm changes, like ‘River flow –Splash!’ and 'Trudi', it reminds me a bit of ZZ Top.

This cd won’t get out of my cd player for a longtime. I’ll play the tracks in my radio show, and maybe one day the Bushmaster will be in my studio to show the Dutch people his music in person. Gary Brown is a great artist and has got great members of his band.
