First, the guitar theme ('Boca Grande') reminds us of the Outlaws. Then it is the same on 'Put your Money where your Mooth is', a real beautiful blues-rock with jazz atmosphere where Frankie Gunn, the guitarist, can show us nice solos full of feeling. Gunn Runners different musical influences bring them to a nice 'Can't you see' cover. Usually, I don't enjoy covers that are too far from the original songs ; but here, I must admit that the way they play that song is really enjoyable and faithful to Toy Caldwell and Marshall Tucker Band big hit !
So, even if Gunn Runners won't be the band of the year, they are really good and deserve our attention on their album !
