Flirtin With Disaster,Heading For The Top!
on 13 March 2010
Following on from their stunning debut,Hatchet repeated the performance on this disc(often cited as their best,i dont think there is much to choose between this and their debut).
Like the first album this veers from out n out southern metal Flirtin with Disaster/Boogie no More while Skynyrd influnces abound on 'Long Time/Jukin City'
throw in some rock n roll,country style with Its All Over Now/Good Rockin and the superb Let The Good Times Roll and you have another sure fire winner and an album that ultimately went platignum.
The stand out track as most afficionados of this band will tell you is the guitar frenzy that is Boogie No More,possibly the heaviest and best track they ever recorded.
Bonus Tracks: 4 in all,the excellent demo 'Silver and Sorrow' which fits in with the likes of All Over Now/Let The good Times Roll , two live version of One Mans Pleasure and the title track,neither of which stray too far from the studio version,however the piece de resistance is Hatchets cover of R Johnsons 'Crossroad Blues,a smokin live version recorded in jacksonville in 1980 as were the other live tracks.
A fantastic album from a fantastic band,the only way surely was up,well actually no,things were never the same after this,that will have to wait for another review.
