JIMMY THACKERY AND THE DRIVERS

LIVE IN DETROIT

2010-04-27

It has always been that Detroit is one of the original Rock & Roll city's, after Jimmy Thackery and the Drivers comes to town it is a Rock and Blues city. Jimmy is a master of the power three piece blues and recorded live he mixes his masterful, and at times relentless guitar with the bass and drums provided by the drivers who have become one of the tightest units in the industry. Jimmy's guitar during some of the instrumentals on this disc are so energized and hot it would be advisable to keep the fire extinguisher next to the CD player. This also is Jimmy's first release on his own label as he not only shreds his guitar but also throws out all the rules of the record companies. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
