By Yours Truly
This is an album I dug out of the dusty confines of my record collection the other day and rediscovered again. I played it and wondered why in the hell I hadn't tagged it as a top 10% effort from my collection.
This is a great rockin' record pretty much all the way around. The 8 tunes are tight, well performed and like I said.....rockin'.....
I can't really go into a whole lot of detail at this point because I'm still refamliarizing myself with it, but I can't imagine any lover of good bluesy, R&R not at least lilking this one if not loving it.
What surprised me is that I always had considered this band and Darrell himself as a one album effort for the simple reason I'd never seen another album with his name on it, but after a net search the other night I was amazed to find that this effort is the 3rd DMB album and there are many more after it, right up until current times. He has an interesting life story that I spent awhile reading and now I'm on the hunt for more Darrell Mansfield.
Give this one a go and maybe you'll be searching for more from Darrell along with me........
