- The Nelsen Adelard Band's sixth album Voodou By You.
Blue Track is proud to announce the release of The Nelsen Adelard Band's sixth album “Voodou By You”. The title is a lighthearted nod to the crazy things our better halves can seemingly make us do without our knowledge.
The album starts out in true Adelard form with the original “I Need Tonight With You” through five Delta Blues jams to the title track “Voodou By You.”
What follows are four more originals reminiscent of the cut back trio approach Adelard took on his previous album, There’s even an a cappella type harmonica and drum number that showcases Nelsen’s affinity for the original.
Nelsen moved down to the Clearwater, Florida area and hooked up with his old friend and band mate, Jon Puhl. They played together in early incarnations of the NAB back in the 70s. Puhl brought with him a tight rhythm section of Mick Donner on bass and Phil Christman on drums. Nelsen’s old friend and west coast band mate, Mark Norris even pops in for a couple tracks on the saxophone.
The new album “Voodou By You” is a smoking example of their combined talents. Excellent performances, great riffs and a no nonsense approach to modern Blues.
Mixed and mastered by Richard Robinson. “Voodou By You” was released March 15th 2015 and is available on iTunes and Amazon.com

- Nelsen Adelard's fifth solo album South By Southwest.
Blue Track is proud to announce the release of Nelsen Adelard's fifth solo album South By Southwest. The title has nothing to do with Austin's annual music festival, but it best describes Nelsen's musical journey from Los Angeles to his new home in McComb Mississippi.
Recorded at Audiophile Studios located in the heart of the French Quarter in New Orleans, with Louisiana natives James Slaughter on bass and Greg Worley on drums the rhythms are simple but infectious and steeped in a southern groove.
The album starts out with two live songs borrowed from James Cotton's song book and taken from a show Nelsen did with his Los Angeles band before leaving town in July of 06. One More Mile and Rocket 88 give the listener a strong dose of the live shows that made Adelard a staple in the LA Blues scene for many years.
What follows are eight new originals. Spanning every facet of the Blues, From West Coast Jump, to Chicago Blues to New Orleans and back. There's even a Blues Rock number that's sure to raise some traditional eyebrows.
Adelard lives up to his "Jack Of All Trades" handle by writing and arranging all the originals as well as singing and playing guitar, harmonica and piano. He once again teams up with recording wizard Richard Robinson to cook up this very tasty slice of American Blues Pie...
