5.0 out of 5 stars Great Red Lightnin twofor, 24 Nov. 2013
This review is from: Younger Than Yesterday... Plus (Audio CD)
Younger than yesterday was the title of these guys' second LP for Red Lightnin-the first was I've gotte new car-both are excellent examples of a great but obscure blues band. Alligator records tried to make quite a lot of cds in this vein im the 70s with Katie Webster, Little Ed', Gatemouth Brown etc.-while well intentioned and generally ok, they got a bit formulaic. These are a step up in class. Strong on guitar, piano and sax as well as vocals they have a great feel to them. The cd incorporates all but two of the tracks from both albums. I can't comment on the reissue as such, what prompted me to do this review was rediscovering the original albums as I convert my vinyl to digital. RL label was a bit dodgy for sound at times but these are beautifully recorded. A club date would have been even better but the studio feel is brilliantly relaxed. e.g. "take number whatever it is....."
