I used to fuss I used to fight I used to get drunk every night Living fast And on the run Never trusted anyone I ain't that way no more nowadays I try to keep my madness in its place I done changed my ways Drove the wrong side of a One way street Always landed on my feet Life on the edge Don't look down Fell overboard but I didn't drown I don't know how I survived those crazy days There's a corner in my soul where the fire stays I done changed my ways You might think I look cool Don't mistake me for a fool Ice on top Lava below You never know, when it might blow Don't be fooled by the smile that's on my face Beware the bear, even in my peaceful phase

Voodoo land 04:30
Mama told papa pack up man We're moving to the Promised Land Just as soon as we hit these shores They promised us peace and the welcome was war Chorus: Living on the shifting sands – down in voodoo land Everyday you make a stand – down in voodoo land Say goodbye say a prayer, Sing of hope and talk despair It's a wild ride to live down here down in voodoo land Grew up in a city of stone Holy mountains and a valley of bones Call it a land of milk and honey Honey is milked by the men with the money The Prophets rage on, the kings ignore Covet all they see, always taking more There's a storm blowing in, a change in the weather Heads are rolling in the eastern deserts Chorus: Living on the shifting sands – down in voodoo land Everyday you make a stand – down in voodoo land Say goodbye say a prayer, Sing of hope and talk despair It's a wild ride to live down here down in voodoo land The rules are changing, troubling signs Better think twice, don't speak your mind Going to war over god and land Dangerous times for a logical man Chorus: Living on the shifting sands – down in voodoo land Everyday you make a stand – down in voodoo land Say goodbye say a prayer, Sing of hope and talk despair It's a wild ride to live down here down in voodoo land

My heart is heavy, my spirit torn An endless journey ever since I was born The road is rough and time takes its toll Sometimes I wonder who owns my soul Not satisfied, but it's Good enough for the Blues One wrong roll of the dice I'm still paying such a heavy price Been here too long, and I believe It's almost time for me to leave It's never fair but it's Good enough for the Blues My sight is blurred, my mission clear I'm on the run but I got no fear One step forward two steps back I lost my way, but now I'm back on track It's never perfect but it's Good enough for the Blues

Well run dry 03:33
White hot light, sweat soaked night My mind is wired and my skin feels too tight Ask me no questions, I'll tell you no lies But the smile I'm wearing feels like a disguise And I don't know why I try And I feel my well has run dry Bored to tears in the virtual sphere Too much spare time, too much fear It's a digital age, and I'm an analogue guy So just go with the flow, and stop asking why Every move you make is on file And I feel my well has run dry Everybody’s looking for someone to blame Dealing with the devil, stealing in the Lord’s name Selling peace, buying war, it's all a waste of time Too many monkeys trying to signify And I move through town just like a spy And I feel my well has run dry
5.
Someday 04:16
Smile at me then you turn away Try to hide the truth your eyes betray You know your lying hurts me to the core But I'll just keep on coming back for more I know you're gonna treat me right – someday baby I know some day You will see the light – someday baby I saw you last night on the far side of town Laughing with strangers, putting me down I woke this morning and all my dreams were gone Got to find a way to keep dreaming on You think I'm Just gonna fade away someday baby You'll be glad I'm the one who stays someday baby I keep on trying to win back your love Feels like dying, but I can't give it up You know my love Will never let you down – no,no baby I'll be here when you Finally come around – someday baby

Chorus: Everybody loves my baby Everybody wants a piece Everybody loves my baby – Oh yeah, oh yeah Everybody loves my baby Everybody wants a piece Everybody loves my baby – oh yeah Cab drivers love her 'cause she always tips The waiter's crazy about the way she sips The admiral just wants her to sink his ships The lion tamer wants her to snap his whip The bankers love her 'cause her credit is good Mechanics want to look under her hood The chef is dying to cook her food The carpenter is trying to sell her his wood The doctor loves her cause her health is so fine The dentist loves her 'cause her teeth are in line The fortune teller's looking for a sign The bartender trying to give her more wine The policeman slapped the cuffs on her wrists The prosecutor says that she tried to resist The witnesses forgot what they witnessed The judge said "case dismissed"

Burning deep 05:16
The empty road, that's where I belong, Many miles of loneliness, is my song Can't see where I'm going, 'cause you made me blind Another long night and another long ride I got the blues burning deep inside of me You got to love me baby, or set me free Babe you bring the best of the worst out in me I tried to do right, but it always was wrong We can't stay apart and we can't get along The Blues is calling – do I pick up the phone? Those same old demons are calling me home I got the blues burning deep inside of me I'm gonna take you to hell, or the deep blue sea Babe you bring the best of the worst out in me Now you're asking me to come home to you But your eyes tell a lie, and the Blues tells the truth So I'm leaving behind the best love that I've known And I follow the signs, to that old lonesome road I got the blues burning deep inside of me Won't pick up that phone, I'm breaking free Babe you bring the best of the worst out in me
8.
You never regret what you don't say Don't look back, you ain't going that way Walking a thin line between crazy and insane I love to hear you whisper my name Y'know your voice is just like a song Singing all night long Nero danced while Rome burned Through tragedies the world still turns They say that the lord works in mysterious ways And my mama said, it's just like that some days Your loving keeps me going strong All night long The temptress with the apple and a serpent in the grass You won't miss your time in Eden Until it's finally passed Sometimes the days just last too long And sometimes right just comes out all wrong Searching for a word, try to write it in a song But some nights the darkness is much too strong I feel the Blues coming on All night long
9.
Shadows 05:23
I remember as a child Running free, running wild Now those days are far behind, you're torn inside When I look into your eyes And see the sorrow you can't hide I'm still searching for the light that used to shine The shadows soon begin to fade, The sunlight of a brand new day I'll never know just how or why They broke your spirit, changed your mind I miss your laugh, miss your smile, I miss your pride You were searching far and wide You never wanted to be tied But they dragged you to the ground and left you dry The shadows soon begin to fade Sunlight of a brand new day Keep the faith, I'm by your side I know some day you're gonna fly Doesn’t matter where you go, enjoy the ride Now it's time to lose the blinds Now it's time for you to rise Now it's time to raise your head and dry your eyes : The thunderheads have blown away Fresh new air, a breath of change The shadows soon begin to fade Sunlight of a brand new day Raise your head and face the sky. Now it's time for you to shine Now the time has finally come for you to rise
10.
Storm 04:43
Clouds rolling in, whistling wind, I feel it's gonna rain The storm is coming, gonna wash away my pain Opened my eyes, looked for the light, could not see a thing The storm is coming, we'll see what the day will bring Feel so blue, can't find the truth, hidden in a forest of lies The storm is coming, gonna separate the fools from the wise The sky's on fire, it's down to the wire, hope I make it home alright The storm is coming, time to get ready for the fight
11.
Old school 03:04
Take our coffee black Drink our whiskey neat Don't come in our kitchen If you can't take the heat We came up the hard w Last of a dying breed When we get to rocking, you best be on your feet You might think we're washed up Nothing but old fools But we're rock'n'roll – We're old school Life is what keeps happening While we keep on trying The best part of the trip Is on the uphill climb We've been through all the wringers Done everything twice Been messed with by the best Seen all the loaded dice Try to keep us down Someone changed the rules But we're rock'n'roll – We're old school Our color might be faded Fender's full of dents We're rusty on the edges But we ai'nt done yet Got to keep on pushing Something's got to give We Live to play, And play to live You think we're out of style But the ladies say we're cool But we're rock'n'roll We're old school

about

The second album by The Blues Rebels, produced by Blues hall-of-fame artist Joe Louis Walker!

We are proud to present to you "Voodoo land", the new album by The Blues Rebels.
For this album, the band decided to re-connect with Blues hall-of-fame member Joe Louis Walker, who had played several shows with them in 2013. Walker returned to Israel in the winter of 2016 to produce the album, which contains 12 new compositions by Dov Hammer and Andy Watts, featuring the bands signature sound, incorporating Blues, rock and funk, and includes a special guest appearance by Joe Louis Walker himself.
Check out track 13, an electronic remix of "Well run dry" - Blues meets electronic music!

The Blues Rebels began in 2012 as a one-time friendly jam between two veteran Blues artists – guitarist Andy Watts and singer/harmonica player Dov Hammer (who had previously played also with Zora Young, Deitra Farr, Billy Branch, Paul deLay, "King" Earnest Baker and many other American Blues artists) .
The immediate chemistry between the two and the powerful stage show that resulted was undeniable. The Blues Rebels soon became one of the hottest Blues bands on the Israeli scene, playing with world-class Blues artists such as Joe Louis Walker, Lucky Peterson and Bernard Allison. The band was also chosen to open for the legendary Johnny Winter, who told the band how impressed he was by their performance.
In March 2015 the band released its first self produced album "Open road" which received much praise from many Blues publications in Europe and the USA, as well as plenty of radio play in Europe and Israel.
We hope you enjoy "Voodoo land"!

The critics RAVE!!
"Energizing musicianship and spot-on songwriting…Hammer and his fellow Rebels make magic in Voodoo land!" – Rainey Wetnight, "Blues Blast" magazine (USA)

"Dov Hammer and Andy Watts know how to write a Blues tune. Songs like the title track, "Good enough", "Well run dry" and "Everybody loves my baby" (which features Joe Louis Walker) grab you the first time around. The band are good and the harmonica playing is of the highest order" – Stuart Hamilton "The Rocker" (UK)

"A top notch CD. The band brings a mix of Chicago blues, rock, soul and jazz. They play well together, the texts are clear and musically their stuff is varied and is well put together. .. A great album that can also lead to The Blues Rebels towards being better known internationally." – Eric Kampfens "Blueszine NL" (Holland)

"This band can rock!" –"Bman's Blues report"

"A superb record" –"Rootstime"(Belgium)
