01 Blessed Be the Bad Ones
"Blessed be the bad ones" the album title shows the way, we are in Texas, in a bar where it's better not to be a stranger. Our guys have listened to their classic (Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, David Allan Coe) but also Lynyrd Skynyrd, ZZ Top and the Allman Brothers Band.
A little bit of mandolin, some blue grass touch and that's all.
They play three hundreds shows every year, musicians know the job and can figure to every situation. We can hear their mature way to play and to arrange their songs. That's why we have a typical blue grass song "Texas Tornado" and heavier song such as "Where you gonna be when I'm gone" with Dalls Moore voice that seems to have eaten all the desert sand and drank liters of Bourbon. Chuck Morpurgo is excellent on the guitar dans the slide.
There are also some nice ballads like "Carolina Sunshine", a deep South from New Orleans to Tennessee song, a story of the journey of a man.
At the end we get a record not particularly original, but we cans listen to with a lot of pleasure, and that gives us the wish to go on the roads of the deep South with the sound of the guitars and the country music.
