Mark Gamsjager and the Lustre Kings is a four-piece American band. “Way Out There” is their fourth album, which is very well presented and produced. It consists of 11 tracks; only some of them are kind of originals (“Empty Town” and “Just About Through With You” were not exactly written by the band, but Mark Gamsjager and the Lustre Kings are the first ones to perform and record them). The rest are covers, which were carefully chosen. I could recognise only some of them - a cover of Eddie Angel's song "Humas High" as well as "Long Lean Baby" of Bobby Wayne and his Warriors are very well performed. And you will love the cover of Sparklin' Brown Eyes, the song which was performed and recorded by Wanda Jackson (who is, by the way, quite often backed up by the Lustre Kings these days). The band plays professionally and you won’t find anything wrong about their instrumental work, or in vocal of Mark.
