The British blues rock album from 3am
featuring three covers, the first “Sweet Loving Woman” performed originally and written by “Midnight Flyer” the band Maggie Bell set up for her last 70′s album. Chris Parren was in this band to tour America with AC/DC.
“Someone to Love”, a Percy Mayfield tune shows off Laura’s vocal dexterity and is a powerful anti-violence blues tune over a colourful chord pattern.
“Early Monday Morning”, a Vinegar Joe tune originally featuring Elkie Brooks. This 3am version features a guest saxaphone solo by Oli Arlotto.
The new songs end with the driving “Highway”,inspired by a Lee Roy Parnell tune, which follows the moody “Insatiable”, colours here include great keys and some lap steel guitar.
“Won’t get fooled again” with “For the First Time” based on a weekend in Budapest are 3am blues-rock numbers.
Andy’s”Tomorrow” is the band’s first true ballad and “Know your Man” has Palm Court overtones,yet another song about love gone bad.
The album itself is a well-balanced listen and is now adopted by the band as the first live set at gigs.

To this day, the 3AM record that I had the chance to review has been one of my favorites. Great band and a great record!!Nik Rodewald
I was there! No chance to dance, so I swayed a bit instead, that's how busy it was! 3am are one of the most involving and fun bands you will see on the live circuit - you can see how much all the band members are enjoying themselves, and it rubs off! Anyone interested in following 3am should check out their next gig in Rickmansworth on 30th November - so much more than blues rock! Just listen to their MP3s, and you'll see what I mean!Mac MacLaren - Lemonrock
We added a couple of your songs to our rotation. You have a great sound and we’re thrilled to have you in the line-up!SoozeBlues and Jazz (Radio Live 365)
I love it more and more every time I play it.Otis Mack – Tubby Blues
