Emerging from Livingston (Scotland) in the 1980s, Blues 'n' Trouble have spent ''30 years as a hard driving, good time Blues and Boogie outfit.'' The current line up consists of: Tim Elliott (vocals/harmonica); Sandy Tweeddale (guitar/vocals); Angus Rose (keyboards/guitar); Rod Kennard (bass); Andy Munro (drums).

Today sees the UK release of their new album, Try Anything Twice, which offers eight original songs and five covers. It's all great sounding, toe-tapping professional blues with a great rhythm section anchoring the sound and letting the keyboards, harmonica and guitars take off and soar in all directions. There is no pretentious element here; it's up-tempo blues with a familiar feel - highly accessible instead of experimental.

The best of the cover songs is a great version of King Bee with growling vocals and exemplary guitar work. The original compositions spin through the style book of the blues, from Rockabilly (Rock This Joint) to slow burners (Waiting) and social commentary (Money's Tight).

There have been recent festival appearances with the legendary Maggie Bell (remember the great theme song for the 1970s TV show Hazell?) and Blues 'N' Trouble are about to hit the road for a UK tour, starting at the end of June.

Powerful and professional, Try Anything Twice will make a welcome addition to your library of blues music.

Stand out tracks:  Try Anything Twice; Waiting; King Bee.
