Fame Game

“For London-based soul singer Lynne Jackaman Muscle Shoals represents the Promised Land. She is about to begin a journey that she has been planning all her adult life, a pilgrimage to her musical Mecca.”


Gospel According to Abraham

“They were just an exceptional band and exceptional people. They’d give their right arm for you. Leon and Billy are gone, that’s really difficult for me to accept. They were absolutely the salt of the earth.”

Flower of Scotland

“The fact that I got the crowd clapping and singing was just superb. It was like a homecoming. I love playing in Scotland.”

Solo flight

“I haven’t played in Glasgow with Jackaman. I have a fondness for Glasgow though – I’ve been there a few times. I just think that my fans from Scotland and Ireland especially are very loyal. I can’t wait to get there.”

European Outlaws

We were feeling an enormous sense of accomplishment and luckily for us the audiences liked the band well enough. We were able to turn in a performance early in the day that was memorable and respectable and we didn’t get booed or disrespected! We played hard and won over the audiences.

Touch of class

I love ‘Truth Be Told’. It’s a fireball of energy. Catchy guitar riffs with a solid backbone of bass and drums. Lead singer Steve Westwood, sporting a Salvador Dali-style mustache, blows the doors off with his hollers and howls. ‘One More Night’ and ‘99%’ are electrifying. Pour a large Jack Daniels and let these impressive tunes wash over you.

Lasting legacy

Like angels, the harmonies soar. Exploding from the amps like Exocet missiles, the guitar solos propel crystal clear, crisp notes. Drums, bass and keyboards are all given their day in the sun, their moment to dazzle.

Royal Conqueror

The crowd laps it up. In a reverential hat-tip to the city’s famed Apollo Theatre, this is a Glasgow audience at its glorious, raucous best showering the band with rapturous applause.

Road test

Now is her time, the moment where she can shine That may mean more tours, but road life is appealing too, the chance to ply her trade, to spread the gospel according to Jackaman:

Magnum Opus

As this superb album confirms, Kansas is a band that refuses to rest on its laurels. It represents a bold and confident statement of intent, the classic sound is back delivered with passion and renewed vigour.
