Love Scars is an impressive debut from Bill Perry, a singer-songwriter that fuses '70s folk with blues. Perry occasionally can sound too earnest -- which could be expected from a former supporting musician for Richie Havens -- but there's genuine skill and craft in his songs. His lyrics are strong and melodies are sturdy, and they're delivered with conviction, which makes up for the occasional awkward moments that should be expected from a debut record. Still, those little missteps are nowhere near enough to prevent Love Scars from being a promising debut. ---Thom Owens, allmusic.com

Bill Perry - William Sanford Perry - born in Goshen, New York on December 25, 1957, was an American blues guitarist, songwriter and singer who toured throughout the U.S. and Europe. In the 1980s, he was lead guitarist for Richie Havens. He also toured with Garth Hudson and Levon Helm around the same time.

Perry cited Jimi Hendrix, Freddie King, Albert Collins, Albert King, Eric Clapton, Johnny Winter and Duane Allman as influences.

In 1995, he was signed for an unprecedented five-album deal with the Pointblank/Virgin label. After meeting that commitment a 1999 performance led to his signing with Blind Pig records. He also appeared on albums by other artists, including Richie Havens, Groove Armada and Popa Chubby.

He died in Sugar Loaf, New York on July 17, 2007, at the age of 49.

Producer and fellow New Yorker guitar slinger Popa Chubby effectively captures Bill Perry's sharp licks and road hardened style on the appropriately titled Raw Deal. The sound is sufficiently unrefined, as is Perry's raspy voice, on this set of searing originals, tempered by a handful of terrific covers. Lyrically the stereotypical life of a "bluesman," told in rather clichéd detail on "Bluesman," ("no insurance, can't get sick") "Big Ass Green Van" and "Going Down to Memphis," doesn't help propel these otherwise well written and arranged songs past established boundaries of the blues-rock genre. "Terrorists," Perry's anti-Iraq war entry, fares somewhat better. Regardless, it's his relentless guitar solos that give this music its guts, and that is where Perry excels. His tone is as gritty as his voice, chewing through this material with licks that reach out and grab the listener, and then pull back into the track. Perry is a master of succinct, fluid lines and has the sense to know when to stop playing, a trick too many in his field haven't mastered. His playing has the tightly wrapped feel of a caged lion before feeding time. A scorching version of Tom Waits' "Til the Money Runs Out" drags the track down to its urban blues roots, and a closing take on Dylan's "Gotta Serve Somebody" brings muscle to the tune's slow boil gospel groove. "Harlem Child" also looks at urban blight, and it's here that Perry's dusky voice and hammerhead guitar strike out with coiled spring intensity. "Live On" takes that hot wired tension and successfully feeds it into a slow R&B pressure cooker. Despite hewing close to the boundaries of his chosen genre, Perry nonetheless stakes his territory as a passionate, tough blues-rocker with a killer tone and enough musical twists to prove why he has survived in an arena rife with lesser talents. ---Hal Horowitz
