A hidden classic, 28 Sept. 2011
I remember reading in the music press at the time of the Georgia Satellites splitting up that it was the death of rock and roll. Whilst not perhaps as strong as that, it was a great pitty that such a great band seemed to just dissolve away. I'd recently been to see them live in the early 90's during the Salvation and Sin tour and to this day it was the best gig I've been to.
The Georgia Satellites knew how to play good time rock and roll and with the addition of the humour and lyrical edge of Dan Baird were a formidable force in R&R. The Salvation and Sin album is arguably their best with the first half of the record being my particular favourite with heavyweights such as I Dunno, Bottle O Tears, Shake that Thing and Games People Play highlights for me. I don't think there's a stand out song on the album as there was on the first GS album and to a lesser extent the second Open All Night effort, but just put the beauty on, sit back and take yourself on a good time rock and roll journey.
How the albums have been de-listed staggers me, so if you get the chance to buy any of the three on CD for reasonable dough, don't hesitate. They'll be a lifelong reminder of how good things were in the old days.
