Mama Talk To Your Daughter
*My Favorites*: 2, 3, 4, 8, 11, 12, 13.
1. (3:24) Mid. George Thorogood / Tom Hambridge song. Strong guitar glory rock, sparse in places, but loud and rockin’. George spews out a list of Chess recording artists at the end.
2. *(3:29) Mid / Fast. Tommy Tucker song featuring Buddy Guy on lead guitar. Amped up marchin’ and rockin’ number.
3. *(3:07) Mid / Fast. Willie Dixon song. Lots of staccato playing and that classic Thorogood guitar-sound soloing. Killer drumming too.
4. *(4:13) Mid. Willie Dixon song. George gives it that Howlin’ Wolf “come on” intonation to open the song. It’s almost a spot on version of the Wolf’s, with a few added flourishes.
5. (2:55) Fast. Chuck Berry song. Energetic, propelled by the percussion and George’s quick vocal delivery.
6. (5:13) Slow. Muddy Waters song. Sparse with guitar, drums, bass.
7. (3:08) Mid. Bo Diddley song. Done, of course, like Bo, with that classic beat. It’s also got some shakers with a really nice interpretation.
8. *(2:30) Mid / Fast. J.B. Lenoir song. Rockin’ danceable bar-room number. Driving with great drumming and guitar playing.
9. (4:02) Mid. Willie Dixon / Sonny Boy Williamson / Ralph Bass song. Plodding beat, guitar soloing, driving and loud. Nice slow-down phrase toward end.
10. (3:20) Mid. Willie Dixon song featuring Charlie Musselwhite on harmonica. Mellow groover with some female backing vocals.
11. *(3:12) Mid. George Thorogood / Tom Hambridge / Richard Fleming song. Tribute to Willie Dixon. Cool story-song, nice tight playing. Great performance by George.
12. *(2:59) Mid / Fast. James A. Lane song. Great piano, driving song.
13. *(4:38) Mid. Nanker Phelge song (pseudonym of the Rolling Stones). INSTRUMENTAL. Really cool organ, featuring Charlie Musselwhite on harmonica. Groovin’ tune.
