    Samantha Fish

    samantha-fish-s25-1 $10 - Samantha Fish is one of the still too few women who are starting to bulk up the ranks of femmes knowing how to sling that guitar like they goddam well mean it, pulling up the floor tiles or raising the roof on a moment's notice, scorching the walls, stopping on a dime, and givin' ya nine cents change. The feisty little blonde was born with the boogie in her (catch the highly infectious swing of the title cut) and not only comes up with great leads but multi-tracks herself superbly, providing fills and embellishments, not to mention chord beds, that will surprise.
