Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: American Music/Trouble Bound (Audio CD)
The Blasters were Dave Alvin's original band along with his brother Phil. Personally I prefer Dave Alvin's solo/later work, but this double cd is still a high quality offering. The first album was released in 1980 and consists of short punchy rock and roll songs sung by Phil Alvin. The second album is a live "reunion" type gig recorded at "The House of Blues" in 2002. This includes a lot of Dave Alvin material which he has released on his own "live" albums such as"Long White Cadillac" and "So Long Baby Goodbye".The lead vocal role is again taken by Phil Alvin, but the overall style is much more Dave Alvin's with the songs stretching out for much longer. Well worth buying at this price.
