Dream Train has welcome echoes of CreamJohnny Winter, and ZZ Top yet remains consistently original throughout. The title track kicks off with a three-minute full tilt boogie laced with ripping electric guitar and a simple but effective metaphor for dreaming.Big Bad Wolf goes mid-tempo with a guitar riff slightly reminiscent of ZZ Top’s Tush. It took me awhile to figure out what the hell the title of the next track, Nome Zayne, was about until I realized it was a clever contraction of “Know what I’m sayin’,” a compact hit of social commentary. The song has a refreshing Marshall amp crunch to the guitar that I find sadly AWOL these days. READ MORE

Style wise there are touches of Southern and classic rock in there, but he has got form in that world having also toured as a member of Starship featuring Mickey Thomas. However, this time around, it’s his singing and playing that takes centre stage and you can’t go wrong if you’re fan of blues rock. Not when the trio of Greene, Austine Beede and Jim Rankin gleefully career through songs as enjoyable as ‘Big Bad Wolf’, ‘Grateful Swagger’ and ‘Rain Stomp’. Highly recommended.

The culmination of Greene’s musical experiences, influences, and passion is his new record, Dream Train. The album was produced and mixed by David Z, whose production credits include Buddy Guy, Gov’t Mule, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Jonny Lang. Dream Train features 13 new songs, 12 of which are Greene originals. The sole cover is a previously unreleased song written by none other than Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top called “Nome Zayne,” which was recorded with Billy’s blessing. The songs on Dream Train range from the hard driving blues rock of the title track, to the sensitive Curtis Mayfield tinged instrumental “Iowa.” “Big Bad Wolf” finds the band in familiar boogie blues rock territory while “DareDevil” takes listeners on a more traditional blues shuffle ride.
