Brother Cane were from Birmingham, 'way down in Alabam' and Seeds was the second of three albums that they made, originally coming out in 1995 and what a corker it is. The cover doesn't give much away but once you put it on it's fairly obvious that these guys are drawing inspiration from classic 70s styled hard rock and as you would expect coming from Alabama there is a Southern flavour to these great tunes, imagine the Black Crowes with some 'G.N.R'and Pearl Jam thrown in to the mix creating something that sounds quite fresh and vibrant .It rocks but the emphasis is on melody, it is full of classic riffs and just when you think it can't get any better they hit you with a killer hook.This is definitely a classic rock album that really does stand up well.
Seriously give it a try especially when you can pick it up for next to nothing,for it is one of those albums that will always stay with you.

Brother Cane is one of those bands that never made it into the big league, but made amazing music. Seeds is an excellent album.
Strong vocals like Eddie Vedder and Chris Cornell.
And a rock groove that just makes you keep playing the album more and more. High points: the southern rock-styled "20/20 faith" and the uptempo rocker "Kerosine".
