5.0 out of 5 stars Aoooooooooohhh September 20, 2005
By Jim
Format:Audio CD
George Thorogood basically created his own musical genre in the late 70s, early 80s, - call it blues recycled rock and roll, but remember that it is not rock, it is rock and roll, traditional style. Thorogood is the guy who introduced poor slobs like me to bluesmen like John Lee Hooker, Howlin' Wolf, Elmore James, etc., and made us go back and listen to the originals. He took their songs, made them his own, and introduced us all to them when no one else would. Make no mistake, George Thorogood loves traditional blues.

Boogie People, released in 1991, is maybe one of his most important records because even after making this music and touring since somewhere around 1975 (according to the liner notes of his first Rounder Records album), he still has a hard edge here. What's really important about the record is that it is the last one where he has that hard edge. This is a serious record. He's not fooling around. His later recordings sometimes sound like he's putting you on, or at least that he now thinks of his music as "cheeseburgers and not steak" as Thorogood has been quoted as once saying. Not here. Here, he's serving up a sirloin, or at least acts like it.

You've got some just great original songs here, "If you don't start drinkin'" & "Long Distance Lover," that are just as close to perfect rock and roll as you can get. As always, he covers blues greats like John Lee Hooker "Mad Man Blues," McKinley Morganfield (aka Muddy Waters) "Can't Be Satisfied," and Chester Burnett (aka Howlin' Wolf) "No Place To Go." He also includes a little heard Chuck Berry rocker (something he loves to do) called "Hello Little Girl," and a classic road song, "Six Days On The Road.

5.0 out of 5 stars This thang ROCKS...Big time! August 23, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent display of Lonesome Georges talent. He rocks all out on Hello little girl and If you dont start drinking im gonna leave. And George displays a nice acoustic touch on Cant be satisfied, And he does an original country song with Oklahoma Sweetheart. Do your self a favor...buy this disc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Big time album here March 10, 2002
Format:Audio CD
BOOGIE PEOPLE by GEORGE THOROGOOD AND THE DESTROYERS is a big time album from someone who has been bringing us some great music for over 20 years now. IF YOU DONT START DRINKIN, BOOGIE PEOPLE, LONG DISTANCE LOVER are original Thorogood compositions that just totally rock and are reason enough to buy this album. NO PLACE TO GO, SIX DAYS ON THE ROAD, BORN IN CHICAGO, HELLO LITTLE GIRL are tunes that also rock the house and shows us some of the bands influences. However, the true gem on this album just might be another original Thorogood composition, OKLAHOMA SWEETHEART. It is a country ballad that fits in perfectly on this album. It is a gem that the listener will truly enjoy. I think everyone reading this should go out and buy this album now.
