This information regards Rob Wullenjohn’s first solo album. His second album can be found on CDBaby, called "Love That You Want", by his band BLUE ON GREEN.
"...these guys blend Blues with Celtic music making foot stomping music for the whole family" -- Jean Bartlett, Pacifica Tribune, March 2000.
"From his early days as a bass guitarist with notable San Francisco musician John Cipollina (Quicksilver Messenger Service) to his performing with, since the founding of, Bay Area Celtic-rock mainstay Tempest, Wullenjohn has continued to push the limits with blended music styles and instrumentation. Following a successful North American tour, Wullenjohn decided it was the time to forge a new musical path. Creating in his studio (The Monkey Palace) he began experimenting and assembling songs for what would become his first solo effort. The product was Blue on Green, a mixture of blues-rock, Celtic traditional, bluegrass and even a bit of Hawaiian slack-key.
The album features classic fiddle tunes, as well as blues numbers reminiscent of tasty English guitarists, such as Fleetwood Mac founder Peter Green. But Wullenjohn doesn’t restrict himself to guitar, filling in on bass, harmonica and banjo. One of the album’s highlights is the tune "Grass Attack," where the musician picks the main theme on banjo, then introduces a slide guitar call-and-response solo. You can count on the band’s show for a variety of styles and instruments fitting tightly together like a jigsaw puzzle."
