Biography

GEORGE THOROGOOD has a theory. “In any field, especially the arts, there are always two things—‘genius’ and ‘very clever.’ There’s no in-between. You’re either a genius or very clever. I’m going to throw out two names at you. John Lennon--genius, right? And Mick Jagger? Very clever. See what I’m saying? I’ll give you another ...

Product Description

Review

"This may be George Thorogood's 15th album of blues-rock, but his passion for the genre clearly remains undiminished. Guest stars such as Buddy Guy and Charlie Musselwhite bring out the best in The Destroyers, who sound every bit as vital as they did in 1977. Blues artists have usually gotten better with age and it seems that George Thorogood is following that tradition." -- Record Collector - October 2011 ***

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeper of the Flame! 18 July 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Borrowing its title from a legendary Rolling Stones b-side, George Thorogood takes us on a musical journey to the home of the legendary Chess Records. And what a joyous journey it is. Although he is no longer a mega-million-selling rock icon, GT continues to blast out his uncompromising, no-holds-barred, rhythm'n'blues with the heart, soul, and passion of a true believer. More power to his elbow!

Skim through the review pages of any music magazine whenever Thorogood has a new release, and you will see immediately that his work is no longer considered worthy of any kind of critical assessment. Either it is ignored completely or condescendingly dismissed. Hardly surprising I suppose in the soulless world of today's music business. As I have said in another Thorogood review on these pages, if you are looking for airbrushed, machine-tooled, designed-by-numbers AOR, please look elsewhere. However if your interest extends back to the origins of our glorious rock'n'roll musical heritage, and/or if you associate heart, soul and sweat with your musical preferences, then this is one for you. From Bo Diddley to Willie Dixon, via Howlin' Wolf and Chuck Berry, this is the music that made righteous, conservative, God-fearin' post-war America (and Great Britain) fear for its very survival. As well as locking-up its children! Here, GT keeps that flame burning for those of us who still care, retaining all the revved-up, dangerous drive of the originals, while bringing everything bang up to date. And he also tosses in a couple of top drawer originals for good measure. Plus there are guest appearances by the utterly stupenduous Charlie Musselwhite AND Buddy Guy.
'Nuff said!

So my question is, good people, what are you waiting for? Stick this into your CD player/iPod/PC (delete as necessary), and ROCK...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent covers of chess artists 16 July 2011
By clive
Format:Audio CD
Well what a return to form. I thought the last couple of albums were a bit lacking in that energy you normally get from a Thorogood album. Ok, you will know all the songs on here but he's managed to alter them just enough to make them be well worth a listen. Some great special guests in Buddy Guy and one of the finest harmonica players ever- Charlie Musselwaite. Please let him tour this in the UK!

4.0 out of 5 stars George rocks the blues 18 July 2011
By G. E. Harrison TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I can't say I'm a massive George Thorogood fan but this latest record - a homage to his heroes on Chicago's Chess records - is pretty good. George covers artists like Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Jimmy Rogers, Buddy Guy, Sonny Boy Williamson and Little Walter and gives them all the George Thorogood treatment. He even includes the Rolling Stones' "2120 Michigan Ave" - the Stones own instrumental tribute to their heroes on the Chess label which was recorded at the studios at that address.

Some tracks work better than others, I particularly liked "Hi heeled sneakers" (with Buddy Guy), "Let it rock", "Bo Diddley", "Chicago Bound" and the very authentic "My babe" with Charlie Musselwhite on fabulous harp that is just a bit too far back in the mix. Apart from that Tom Hambridge's production is OK and keeps everything straight ahead and rocking. The new songs "Going Back" and "Willie Dixon's gone" (written with Hambridge and Richard Fleming) just about fit in and articulate the background to George's love of the music. This love of the Chess music really comes across and he doesn't try to ape the artists he covers but bends the songs to his own style.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Georges best albumns. 25 Oct 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ive always like George Thorogood, theres just someting completely unpretentious about his music. George, even by his own accounts is no guitar meastro, but what he does do, he does well. Some of his albumns in the past have been hit and miss (including a couple of turkeys imo), this however is superb rockin blues albumn that anyone would enjoy. One of Georges best so far.

Another fine album by the ever reliable George Thorogood and The Destroyers. Fairly roots stuff, livened up by George's enthusiasm and the presence of Buddy Guy and Charlie Musselwhite.

2.0 out of 5 stars 2120 SOUTH MICHIGAN AVENUE 4 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was really disappointed with this album.

George's playing seems to have lost a lot of the subtlety& nuances it had in earlier days, I'm thinking in particular of his peerless rendition of Delaware Slide on the 1977 George Thorogood & the Destroyers album.

One of my all time favourite songs The Chuck Berry classic 'Let It Rock' is given a fairly lacklustre run through on here, if you want to hear a definitive interpretation of the original I suggest Dave Edmunds version on his Subtle as a Flying Mallet CD.

I respect the idea of George paying homage to the legendary Chess Record company & all the great artists they recorded, but I honestly think he comes up short on it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rockin!
The music is as old as the hills, the thump of the bass, the time of the drums and the drive of the guitar, but George makes it sound as fresh as ever.
