Voodoo Kings
Submitted by voodoo10 (29 May 2015)
Not to detract from anyone else, not to pour praise on any one of the band above the others, but this album wouldn’t be half the album it is without the utterly fantastic slap double bass that drives it onwards, upwards and towards a rock’n’roll bequiffed fantastic sound. The drums compliment it completely, subtle and...

These 2 books are a gold mine of classic, rockabilly guitar solos written in tablature and standard notation and include accompanying MP3 audio files. The books cover a wide range of solos but the main protagonists are Cliff Gallup and Grady Martin. The solos include B-I Bickey Bi Bo Bo Go, Who Slapped John?, Lonesome...
The Rockats
Submitted by dcltrueleft (29 February 2016)
Some cats got it...In my first-hand estimation, the Rockats and Robert Gordon prowled the crest of the 70s/80s revival wave. So it's only fitting that in 2014 they all located at Lanark Records - their presence at the surging upstart imprint elevating it in importance. The original 'Cats are here - world-class singer Dibbs...
Tremors
Submitted by dcltrueleft (29 February 2016)
Jimmy Tremor (nee Gardner), leader of North Carolina's hell-bent hillbilly rockers the Tremors, has ensured that they varied little over the course of 10 years and five CDs. There was and is no need. A backwoods Americana visionary, Tremor was onto something good from the start. The feral cats howling at the fractured, midnight blood moon,...
Robert Gordon
Submitted by dcltrueleft (29 February 2016)
As an RG fan who first heard The Voice on 1975's "Live at CBGB's" double LP, I couldn't be happier with this disc - a strapping reaffirmation of supremacy. Robert has for years percolated on undersung releases (like 2006 Last Call disc "Rockin the Paradiso," and 2007's "It's Now or Never," on Rykodisc.) For...
Clint Bradley
Submitted by dcltrueleft (29 February 2016)
Gentle-voiced Clint knows well his way around winsome western airs of the sort that Marty Robbins rode to the trail's high end. And that he ambles good-naturedly, an occasional bounce in his giddy-up, allows the appropriately mainly acoustic players to stretch and interpret at hand-tooled leisure. A relaxing satisfaction. Recommended "Riding After Midnight," "Six Strings,"...
Reach Around Rodeo Clowns
Submitted by dcltrueleft (29 February 2016)
Unfortunately, terms like "inventive," "refreshing," and "clever" have too often been used to describe musicians not nearly as worthy of their imprint as is Quentin Jones. Those already fans of the man's red hot-gunning guitar-play -- with, most recently, Charlie Gracie, Robert Gordon, and the Rockats, as well as his own RARC -- know him...
Robert Gordon
Submitted by dcltrueleft (29 February 2016)
(A quick note: Some call this an "unauthorized bootleg," none of whose sales profits go to Robert Gordon. On the other hand, I've been assured that the tapes were in fact paid for, and that release is entirely proper. I understand players depend on music sales for their livelihood, and I don't wish to...
Lustre Kings
Submitted by dcltrueleft (29 February 2016)
The Lustre Kings dig that true-hearted rockabilly has a country core, and their unfeigned love of the rebel music is infectious. The good-time sounds purveyed by Gretsch-slinger Mark Gamsjager and co. swing, bop, and wheel in formidable fashion; so enthusiastically so that the world's hardwood dance floors surely fear the Lustre Kings. Each hip-dipped step of...
Jinx Jones
Submitted by dcltrueleft (29 February 2016)
It's not uncommon for artists to cool down a bit once they're a few discs into recording careers. Maybe they lose something of their initial creative fire. Perhaps they're a little less hungry. But such concerns can be set to one side 'til another day and for a different case. Because California guitar wizard Jinx...
