Before they sweated their image down to beards, babes and hot rods, ZZ Top were a down 'n' dirty blues-rock trio with a bonafide hot guitar player in Billy Gibbons. On this 14-track offering, Warner goes back through the back ZZ catalog and cobbles together an interesting collection of the Texas trio's bluesier sides that originally appeared on their earliest albums. Highlights include "Brown Sugar," "A Fool for Your Stockings," "My Head's in Mississippi," "Apologies to Pearly" and Gibbons' storming stringwork on "Bar-B-Q."
"Voodoo Guitar", the way-kool debut studio disc by this bad-ass, killer blues/rock axeripper from Los Angeles, features 10 tracks of hard-assed, get-down, nasty, rough & ready, blues-based heavy guitar power trio riffage that will rock your low-down blues and kick your ass right into the next county. Dirty Dave Osti is a bonafide blues/rock guitar hero who can rip it hard with the best of them. The man gets down to serious six string business and rocks the blues with wild abandon as the Dirty One cuts loose and goes for the throat nailing down each muscular riff with sheer force and relentless groove. Osti knows when to jam hard and when to kick back @ the shack for an unforgettable, dynamic, blues/rock guitar ride…
Mega-Awesome 5th studio disc by this killer blues/rock axeslinger from California featuring 12 songs of excellent, dynamic, world-class, blues-based heavy guitar rock music that lands way-kool & solid to the creative musical core. Dirty Dave Osti is a legit, old-school, guitar hero who speaks the real six string language of all the greats, a true solid man of rock who has created and produced his best, strongest disc to date. Recorded excellently at the Dirtshack Studios, Dirty Dave Osti lands deep and inspired, a seasoned veteran of all things guitar with his own original musical style, vision and vibe. Osti knows what time of day it is when it comes down to the riffage that matters as he cranks up his "Voodoo Guitar" and "Burns Down The Dirtshack" teaching us about the "Shakedown On Salvation Street" as we travel to the dark delta swamplands way beyond the crossroads to find redemption and deliverance preaching rock n' roll with the "Midnight Mojo Man".
The Dirty Dozen is the fourteenth studio album from blues rock artist George Thorogood and the Destroyers. The album was released on July 28, 2009. The Dirty Dozen reached #1 on the Billboard Top Blues Albums and was on the chart for 11 weeks. The album includes six new songs (1-6) and six classic favorites (7-12), including three tracks that were previously out-of-print in the U.S.
At times on Dirty Deal, it's virtually a Little Feat reunion, with five members from the classic lineup helping out on "Three Sides to Every Story," giving it a wonderful, funky momentum. Coco Montoya himself is definitely a better-than-average guitarist and singer when it comes to the R&B/blues axis, although he's at his best on tracks like "How Do You Sleep at Night?" where he has the chance to pull more emotion from his instrument; in this case, more than a touch of bitterness. He's cut from the same cloth as Robert Cray, but without the same soulful subtlety. Montoya is more a shot and a beer than a smooth cocktail. You come away from this with the sense that he holds nothing back, and even a performance in the studio would be sweaty; there's that amount of commitment. And while he may not be one of the guitar gods, when he unleashes a flurry of notes (as on "It Takes Time") he's still a powerhouse. Perhaps the biggest problem is that, although he cranks in all departments, there's very little to really distinguish his music from many others mining the same seam.
A collection of excellent unreleased music recorded through the years by this outstanding, blues-based, heavy guitar rocker from California. Includes 15 tracks of way-kool, killer, soul-powered, authentic, real, "old-school" six string mojo that lands pure & deep to the musical core. The strength of the material + musicianship rides high and shines brightly. Raise the fist of the true guitar rock child & celebrate the awesome music of Dirty Dave Osti @ the essential, highly recommended "Rare Tracks" disc.
Whiskey Bayou Records proudly releases Pain By Numbers, the new album by acclaimed guitarist-vocalist, Eric McFadden. Guitar Player Magazine writes, “If San Francisco is home to anyone approaching the abilities of a modern Jimi Hendrix, it’s Eric McFadden.” Produced by famed musician (and Whiskey Bayou Records co-owner) Tab Benoit, “Pain by Numbers” is twelve tracks of dark gospel, compelling rock, and dirty blues. Encompassing three decades of recording and performing live, McFadden has created his own original style. His music is dirty, his guitar is dirty, and his attitude is dirty. Not in a “screw you” way but in the gut-wrenching, no-holds-barred, breaking-all-the-rules way. This all brings an unleashed passion to his song writing, guitar playing, and his endless, creative Pain By Numbers journey.
Evidently, Brian Setzer doesn't take the jump blues and swing of the Brian Setzer Orchestra as a joke. Dirty Boogie is his third album with his large band, and instead of sounding tired, the record is the group's best effort yet. Setzer rocks the band hard, tearing through blues and rock & roll covers with vigor, and delivering made-to-order originals that are surprisingly well crafted and memorable. Much attention will be paid to "You're the Boss," a cover of the Elvis Presley/Ann Margaret staple from Viva Las Vegas, performed as a duet with No Doubt's Gwen Stefani, but that's hardly the only highlight here – it's a swinging, rocking record that suggests Setzer's skills are only improving with time.
2011 album from the veteran singer/songwriter. With Dirty Jeans & Mudslide Hymns, Hiatt has created one of his most dynamic albums in the past decade.
