"Alastair Greene's Trouble At Your Door is filled with killer guitar riffs and licks from a player who knows how to administer them like a highly educated Doctor!!! The band is tight, and the songs are strong!!! No labels needed, it's just killin' intense music from a player with taste!"”

Nick Moss, Nick Moss Band

"Alastair should be out playing with the biggest bands in the world. I believe it's just a matter of time."”

Alan Parsons, Legend

"I've known Alastair since we were kids and he's always been a ripping guitarist. Glad to hear he's still going strong."”

Chris Shiflett, Foo Fighters

"Alastair isn't your ordinary average Blues Rock guy. He's the Blues minister from HELL!"”

CF Kip Winger, Winger / Solo Artist / Composer

“When it comes to backing bluesmen, most guitar players who rock as hard as Alastair Greene sound like sox on a rooster looks!!! Musicianship and respect for the blues are what make the difference. Trust me, only a few have that particular talent today; everybody should watch this guy!"”

James Harman, Your Full Service Bluesman Since 1962

ALASTAIR GREENE BAND TROUBLE AT YOUR DOOR Electro Groove Records Alastair Greene is a highly respected guitar player who has been an integral part of Alan Parsons Project for some time as well as recording with several top names. This is his fifth studio album under his own name and as one would expect from someone of his pedigree it’s high quality throughout. The basic line up is classic power trio with guest Eric Norlander adding keyboards on a couple of the longer tracks. Whether it’s searing rock guitar as on the title track or the more blues based riff laden Back Where I Belong, Greene hit’s the spot. He can also carry off a solo National Steel vibe as on Red Wine Woman inviting the women in question to drink with him. First Born Son is a swaggering anthem of a track with great keyboards, while Love You So Bad returns to trio format delivering a vibrant rockin’ blues boogie. The longest track is Calling For You, an epic feeling with keys and a soft vocal giving it a lovely floating psychedelic feel. I’ve followed Alastair Greene for a while and it’s difficult to understand why he hasn’t yet got a higher profile as some of his contemporaries. He is the equal of any and better than most. Hopefully this release will redress the balance.”

  Alastair Greene Band – Trouble at Your Door Eclecto Groove Records www.eclectogroove.com 12 tracks/48 minutes The marriage of blues and rock began decades ago and it renews it’s vows with a vengeance in this high energy set of original tunes from Alastair Greene and his band. Greene has been at this since 1997 and this is his fifth studio release since 2002 and he has also released a live album. The band has changed a bit here and there and is now comprised of Jim Rankin on bass and Austin Beede on drums along with Greene on guitar and vocals. This is a powerful trio of musicians that pack a lot of punch in their music! Greene has toured with Alan Parsons as his guitar player and appeared on his 2004 album. He is the real deal and this CD proves it even more! The trio blasts off with “People” and never looks back. A big slide guitar intro and lead along with Greene’s strident vocals grab the listener and gets them ready for a fun ride. Stellar guitar work! Except for the slide, more of the same follows in the title cut as the band gets into a groove and Greene lays out some hot licks. “Back Where I Belong” offers more stinging-ly stellar guitar work. Greene breaks out the National Steel Guitar for “Red Wine Woman” and delivers a great solo performance of very traditional blues. Erik Norlander appears on Hammond organ “Back Where I Belong” and “Calling for You.” The former is a rock anthem sort of cut while the latter is a thoughtful, introspective, semi-psychedelic and very down tempo piece. They are a nice contrast and Norlander’s keys add a nice dimension. “Love You So Bad” is a driving, high energy danceable tune with distorted vocals and another big, ringing guitar performance. On “Make the Devil’s Day” Greene builds from the verses through the choruses to another huge guitar solo. “Strange Feeling” is another throwback to blues rock of the 70′s in it’s sound. Greene once again lays it all all on his solo. “Pretty Price to Pay” is similar in nature and gets the blood circulating. He concludes with another “blues rock anthem” with heavy guitar; “The Sweetest Honey” is cruises perhaps into the sound of early southern rock (Marshall Tucker perhaps) and closes out a fine set of tunes. Often I find albums heavy into the guitar to start to get boring; that was not the case here. Greene approaches his music and wields his axe strongly but with sufficient variety and mixed with his well-articulated and clean vocals. It was a lot of guitar but it was well done and something I could listen to repeatedly and enjoy without getting tired of. GO buy this and take this one on an end of summer car trip and get you motor running with Alastair Greene and his band- you won’t regret it!”

Steve Jones, Blues Blast Magazine

The Alastair Greene Band operates out of your standard power-trio stance, tri- angulated by bass, drums and a mammoth guitar that errs on the side of blistering. Given the chance, they’ll blues-rock your world. Especially here, when delivering Trouble at Your Door for their fifth studio appearance. Greene’s combination of fast fretting fingers and gone- berserk slide shreds through the melodic riffage of “First Born Son,” the intensified gimme three steps, Mister storyline chased through “The Sweetest Honey,” and the nine other new songs about love and hate and the hate of b.s. artists (“Pretty Price to Pay”). That aggressive mojo works just as well slathering Michael Burks’ “Strange Feeling” in marvelously mean sustain. Yet on nights when AGB isn’t roaring on a bandstand somewhere across California, Greene’s alter ego has been moonlighting alongside vintage prog-rocker Alan Parsons on stages worldwide. Fair enough, since caterwauling through the bottleneck boogie “Back Where I Belong” is a whole world removed from any “I Robot” synthfest. That’s why, with exceptionally little room for any slack on such a highly-pressurized session, “Calling for You” emerges as quite the unexpected ethereal surprise, spiritually akin to, say, the likewise hazy headtrip of “Planet Cara- van” tucked inside Paranoid’s metallic megawatts. Mildly psychedelic, its echoey waves and malleted cymbals are a floating oasis encircled by a ring of Gibson Les Paul fire.”

The latest effort from veteran SoCal blues/rock guitarist Alastair Greene hits like a fleet of Mack trucks thundering down the side of Mount Everest. As hyperbolic as that may seem, it is an apt description as Alastair is one of those blues rockers who unleashes powerful energy in the vein of Johnny Winter, Jeff Healey, and the like, while still keeping a blues feel intact.”

MW, Music Morsels Reviews

The Alastair Greene Band has backed a number of blues artists in the studio and on stage since their formation in 1997, notably James Harman, Mitch Kashmar, and Franck “Paris Slim” Goldwasser. Guitarist/vocalist Greene has also backed Alan Parsons since 2010, and has appeared on recordings by Aynsley Dunbar and Glen Phillips (Toad the Wet Sprocket). The band has also released five albums (four studio, one live) of their muscular blues-rock since 2002. Their latest, Trouble at Your Door, is their first for Eclecto Groove Records. The disc offers a dozen tracks of high-energy blues-rock, with Greene’s superior guitar work front and center. On tracks like the searing opener, “People,” “Back Where I Belong,” and the southern rocker “First Born Son,” his slide guitar work is superlative. On other tracks like the James Gang-styled title track, the countryish “Love You So Bad,” the hard-charging “Last Train Around The Sun,” “The Sweetest Honey,” and “Make The Devil’s Day,” Greene’s fretwork is equally strong.

Delta Groove follows up on its initial slate of 2014 releases (Bob Corritore, Terry Hanck & Shane Dwight) with another trio of albums, beginning with the Alastair Greene Band’s Trouble At Your Door. Greene has been kicking around Southern California for years, fronting one form of his band or another, releasing four indie albums that display his enormous blues-rock guitar chops and considerable songwriting skills. Oddly enough, Greene pays the bills by touring with prog-rock legend Alan Parsons, but that just shows the range of his skills, and he’s all blues business on Trouble At Your Door, leading his power trio of bassist Jim Rankin and drummer Austin Beede through a dozen livewire performances, most of them original tunes, the lone cover here of Michael “Iron Man” Burks’ “Strange Feeling,” which bristles with enough raw energy to do the late Mr. Burks proud. (Release date: 06/17/14)”
