Who Do You Love, Juicy Lucy: The Anthology - Just lie back and enjoy it!
on 12 June 2010
Having bought this on a recommendation, I knew nothing of the band `Juicy Lucy' before hearing this. I am now determined to get their back catalogue.
Recorded in the late `60s/ early `70s, this best of album is stuffed with top notch blues/rock. Think Dr. Feelgood, but with Alexis Korner as the vocalist and you'll get an idea of the normal sound. Their influences are easy to hear, Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, Howlin' Wolf. The sound is a down and dirty blues, sometimes with a slight New Orleans tinge. With covers of Bo Diddley's `Who Do You Love', and Chuck Berry's `Nadine', and a host of raucous originals; this is a record jam packed with great riffs, howling vocals, heavy drums and rocking bass. I loved it.
