Album Review
Gabe
Reviewed 2003-06-09 
Excellent roadhouse rock from a longtime Mission busker. Guitarlos, his band, and guests (Dave Alvin, John Doe, Mike Watt) mix blues, soul, rockabilly, and country into straight ahead rock. There's nothing groundbreaking here; rather, it's aural comfort food. The lyrics lean to lost love, lost homes, lost opportunities, and hope, redemption, and continued effort in the face of all that.

1. Twangy fast one
2. Lovin' blues
3. Chuggin' assertion of self-worth
4. Bluesy prayer
5. Fast road blues
6. Woeful blues
7. Swingin' rockabilly featuring Dave Alvin - Whew!
8. Mellow blues
9. Bar-room country and western with the help of John Doe
10. Fast boogie tune
11. Pounding blues
12. Mellow jazz-inflected tune
13. Shufflin' blues
14. True roadhouse ode to the CoCo Club
15. Fast, good-time rock with an almost island sway
16. Slow, bitter blues
17. Searing sadness
