Album Review
DJ McGriddle
Reviewed 2017-05-09 
BLUES-ROCK collaboration of seasoned and talented virtuosos. This record is gold, with all songs pretty good and some great. Some zydeco, some boogies, a lot of old school country, rock and blues. Danceable, drivable, drinkable. RIYL Alvin Bros., North Mississippi Allstars, Luther Dickinson, Clutch? Track 4 (kinda?) has an FCC.

1. (2:17) **** Fast, driving rockabilly w/ a catchy, succinct refrain.
2. (3:43) *** Upbeat, swingin’ early country/rock.
3. (3:15) **** Medium, tough rock groove.
4. (2:32) ***** (FCC? “Muthafuyyah”) Stellar Zydeco groove.
5. (2:43) *** Fast, driving rock emulating Clutch.
6. (2:48) *** Early country rock.
7. (2:40) *** Fast, loud rocker.
8. (3:20) *** Medium speed adultery blues.
9. (2:47) **** Great Zydeco-swung rocker.
10. (3:45) **** Mean sinner -> prisoner story w/ great, strange lyrics & a twist.
11. (2:08) *** Nice, quick boogie.
12. (1:59) **** Nicer, quicker boogie w/ Dave Alvin.
13. (2:20) *** Blues/rock/jazz/zydeco
14. (1:32) *** Another quick boogie w/ some emphasis on keys.
15. (3:08) ***** Slow, plodding bass. Espanol. Island, mariachi vibe?
