PROFESSOR LOUIE AND THE CROWMATIX

Whispering Pines

2009-11-25

Professor Louie (Aaron Hurwitz) has recorded and/or performed with such classic rock acts as Commander Cody and The Band. He's surrounded himself with like-minded musicians such as Frank Campbell who toured with the Rick Danko/Levon Helm duo of the 70's-80's and with Miss Marie, who also performed in some of The Band's recordings. While this album features fine musicianship, vocal harmonies, and production; given the credentials of the musicians, I'm not surprised that it sounds like classic rock. There are plenty of covers here, including the oft-recorded/performed "The Weight" and Bob Dylan's "Serve Somebody". (Two songs that, while classics, I really don't need to hear again.) Rebecca Ruth
