Lucky Numbers is the third album in three years for the self-declared The Ringmaster General after last year's release of the same name and 2011's The Blackbird Diaries. For Lucky Numbers, the singer, songwriter and guitarist assembled the same team of Nashville's finest that were on the previous two, though instead of working in co-producer/engineer John McBride's Nashville studio, Stewart shifted the recording sessions to a boat in the South Pacific. Like the previous two albums, Lucky Numbers combines Stewart's '60s British rock sensibilities growing up in the northeast of England with the veteran Nashville country musicians' southern blues. Players on Lucky Numbers include guitarist Tom Bukovac, drummer Chad Cromwell, bassist Michael Rhodes, pianist Mike Rojas, pedal steel guitarist Dan Dugmore joined by multi-instrumentalist Kieran Kiely, who played accordion, flute and, most notably, the Irish bodhrán drum that can be heard in the opening notes of the first single, "Every Single Night." The list of guest stars includes singers Martina McBride - "Every Single Night", Karen Elson - "Nashville Snow", Aussie pop diva Vanessa Amorosi - "What's Wrong With Me", Broadway star Laura Michelle Kelly and violinist Ann Marie Calhoun.

Writer, producer, artist and co-founder of Eurythmics, Blackbird Diaries is Dave Stewart's first solo album of new material in over a decade. With an American flare and rooted in rock, country, and blues, Blackbird Diaries is in the vein of recent releases by Neil Young masterful recordings mixed with rich and detailed lyrics. Material features co-writes with Bob Dylan and with Stevie Nicks as well as duets with Stevie Nicks, Martina McBride, Colbie Caillat and several tracks featuring The Secret Sisters.

With 1998's "Slyfi", Dave's fourth solo release, he finally achieves complete musical success that eluded him on his three previous outings. Here, Dave sounds up to date and even joyous. Great songs like "Happy To Be Here", "Leaving This Earth", "Even The Bad Times (Were Good Times)" and "AWOL" make this release worth owning. All 10 tracks fit together very nicely with minimal filler or waste. Dave tones down "Greetings From The Gutter"'s heavy r&b influence and blends it with electronica here for nice effect. I find it interesting that one year before reuniting with Annie Lennox for "Peace" that Dave Stewart was making some really great music that was absent from "Peace", which is perhaps why "Peace" didn't sell well in America among other things. If you are a fan of Dave's music or the Eurythmics, "Slyfi" is definitely worth owning.

Following two anemic-selling albums with his post-Eurythmics outfit, the Spiritual Cowboys, Dave Stewart released his proper solo debut in Greetings From the Gutter. It curtails the more rock-leaning aspects of the prior albums for a funkier, dance approach with Parliament/Funkadelic alumni Bootsy Collins, Bernie Worrell, and Jerome "Big Foot" Brailey backing Stewart. The sultry, almost campy, "Heart of Stone" is a funky, disco-styled song with infectious backing vocals performed by a female quartet including Lady Miss Kier, Nona Hendryx, and Siobahn Fahey. "Chelsea Lovers" is a deliciously bittersweet, glam ballad (with a nod to Bowie in the lyrics). "Jealous" is stripped down and soulful and "St. Valentine's Day" opens like a Tom Waits song before giving way to a Beatlesque, psychedelic melody. Laurie Anderson adds violin and vocals to the eerie, spacy "Kinky Sweetheart," featuring a wicked guitar solo from Stewart. "Damien Save Me" has a monstrous, hypnotic groove, a smoking sax solo from Lenny Pickett, and some Hendrix-like guitar. The playing is tight, the vibe is loose, and Greetings From the Gutter is some of Stewart's warmest, most compelling work.

In view of this broad range of activities it was not such a big surprise after the EURYTHMICS' (temporary) split to see DAVE STEWART pull THE SPIRITUAL COWBOYS out of his hat in 1990, a band that musically had little to nothing in common with the synth pop of his duo with Annie Lennox. Three guitars! Two drum kits! Up to now, that was only known from southern rock/ jam bands like THE ALLMAN BROTHERS, GRATEFUL DEAD and LYNYRD SKYNYRD. Behind one of the drum sets sat Martin Chambers whom STEWART had borrowed from Chrissie Hynde (PRETENDERS) - if Chambers did not hurry to the front edge of the stage to shake the maracas or sing backing vocals.
