Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2011-10-24The easiest way for me to describe this disc is West Coast Blues meets Phil Alvin and the Blasters for one rocking good time party. This CD is a celebration of Women, Booze, and a rowdy good times. Whiteboy James is a very talented harmonica player who has a voice for the blues and stories to tell. The first track "Big Butted Women" sets the tone for the disc as a west coast blues feast celebrating women who may just have a little extra junk in the trunk. "Stay Out Late at Night" could easily be mistaken with the punk rockabilly sounds of the Blasters. "Zerg, Shotgun and You" sounds like a musical union of Johnny Cash and the Reverend Horton Heat. Whiteboy James kicks up the rocking blues sound again with "Gold Brick Bar" a place where I am sure you can buy some of that Night Train Wine. "Slow Down And Let Me Love You" is a blues harmonica track where the harp is as hot as the girl Whiteboy is trying to seduce. The Blues Express also does a cooking version of the Willie Dixon classic "I'm Ready" a song popularized by George Thorogood which features some great guitar from Scott Abeyta. This CD is actually a remake of Whiteboys debut album from 1992 a disc I completely missed but am thankful almost 20 years later that this talented band has kept the party going.
