Tell Everybody is a CD produced with the good taste of seasoned musicians who know to avoid the common mistakes of youth by displaying all that one can do. This is clearly the album of a veteran, a man who grew up with the blues in his soul and has paid his dues. You can tell just by listening. Of course, when it comes to blues, Richard Carr can do everything, and he doesn't hesitate to prove it, alternating from jump blues, country blues, solo acoustic, Chicago blues, to rock & roll, without ever falling into the excesses of blues-rock as a mainstay.
This is not Richard's ego trip; it's his love story, his love of music foremost and blues in particular.
He sings and plays this vintage blues with equal talent within an era where the guitar is often put on a pedestal; the real music lover may wonder if he can love the singer with the perfectly seasoned voice as equally as he does the guitar player who changes styles from T-Bone Walker to good old downhome Delta Blues with astounding ease.
Listening to Tell Everybody, is quite à propos to send this universal message: Tell Everybody, tell everyone, Richard Carr finally released his first album and it's classy!
