Kevin Bryan delivers his verdict on some of this week's CD releases.

The Felice Brothers,"Undress" (Yep Roc)-Brothers Ian and James Felice spent their formative years in the Hudson Valley region of upstate New York, where they were exposed to such diverse creative influences as the works of Woody Guthrie, Chuck Berry and American poet and essayist Walt Whitman. The critically acclaimed pair may have begun their performing careers as buskers on the unforgiving streets of the Big Apple in 2006 but they're now firmly established as prime purveyors of the finest Americana, and their first album with the recently recruited rhythm section of Will Lawrence and Jesske Hume serves up a string of evocative Dylanesque gems led by "Jack Reminiscing," "The Kid" and "Undress" itself.

Doug Sahm,"Texas Radio & The Big Beat" (Floating World)-The late Doug Sahm is best remembered these days for his mid sixties musical exploits with the Sir Douglas Quintet and his childhood friend Augie Meyers, whose distinctive Vox organ sound underpinned infectious singles successes such as "Mendocino" and "She's About A Mover." The hits dried up fairly rapidly but Doug soldiered on regardless, and this splendid 2CD set brings together recordings of two of the talented Texan's live shows from the early seventies. The joyous diversity of Sahm's approach to music-making is reflected here in covers of everything from Hank Williams' "Jambalaya" to T-Bone Walker's "Stormy Monday" alongside the aforementioned hits and the great man's virtual theme tune,"Is Anybody Going To San Antone."

Doug Seegers,"A Story I Got To Tell" (BMG)-New York born Doug Seegers' first major album release in the UK offers a revealing insight into the work of a veteran performer whose life until fairly recently had been a constant struggle against the vagaries of homelessness, poverty and substance abuse. All this changed in 2013 however, when a chance meeting with a Swedish film crew on the streets of Nashville led to a lucrative recording contract and the rest, as the old cliche goes, is history. Swedish gold and platinum discs have followed in the interim,and Seegers' latest eagerly anticipated offering, "A Story I Got To Tell, " provides an eloquent vehicle for his soulful blend of country, blues, gospel, soul and rock.

Link Wray,"Indian Child" (Floating World)-This charismatic character's place in rock history was assured when he laid down the menacing instrumental,"Rumble," in 1958, and his raw and uncompromising approach to the art of music-making would go on to influence a whole host of rock luminaries during the coming decades, although commercial success would remain largely elusive."Indian Child" is in many ways the great lost Link Wray album, recorded in Denmark in 1993 with a local band who had never played with him before and swiftly consigned to oblivion soon afterwards. The bluesy pop on offer here may be a far cry from Link's early output but heartfelt tracks such as "Diamonds and Pearls" and "Trying To Find Your Love" are still well worth a few minutes of anyone's time nonetheless.
