Johnny Moeller

BlooGaLoo! (Severn Records)

Guitarist Johnny Moeller cut his six-string teeth in the second wave of Antone's players, the 1990s Guadalupe Street era. He paid those dues playing for the Thunderbirds, and now he delivers a third solo album of estimable blues power and guitar soul. BlooGaLoo!'s bloodlines run hot with true believers Kim Wilson, Lou Ann Barton, Shawn Pittman, Matt Farrell, and Gary Clark Jr. This deserves vinyl. (CD release: Friday, April 30, Victory Grill.) ***
