5.0 out of 5 stars Party time! Hard-rockin' good-time music. April 14, 2005
By Tom B
Format:Audio CD
George Thorogood acquired a reputation early on as a barroom band, suited for places where people go out and dance and drink and talk loud and laugh. His critics say this is his downfall; his fans say -- that's what he does best! This disc is a real smoker, jumping right out with "Shake Your Money Maker", then before you can sit down he launches his own song, "You Talk Too Much", and then burns through T-Bone Burnett's "Highway 49." A couple songs later George assures us, in Fats Domino's words, that he's "ready, willing and able," and you know that's true. He then tells the secret motive behind just about all his songs in his composition "I Really Like Girls." I think we guessed that, and even those of us who are married can appreciate the sentiment and the energy behind it. There is no "deep" meaning here, except that feeling alive and lively is the essence of life. So crank up the volume and have a good time. It's easy with this disc playing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Standard George Rock & Roll June 4, 2007
By Jim
Format:Audio CD
George Thorogood and The Destroyers released this record in 1988, and I bought it and still own it on vinyl. (I probably need to purchase the CD, hunh?) This was George still at really the height of his popularity - the mid 1980s -- and he was producing his own brand of standard rock and roll that was actually being played on the radio, which was some kind of miracle. If I'm not mistaken, two songs had videos that were played on MTV. I specifically remember the video for "Treat Her Right."

This CD is a rocker with tons of highlights. Serious rock and roll includes the reworked Elmore James tune "Shake Your Moneymaker" (an absolute pounder), "You Talk Too Much," and "Born to Be Bad," basically the sequel to "Bad to the Bone," his signature song that everyone knows. Other really good tracks that I like are "I'm Ready" (a Fats Domino tune), "Treat Her Right," and "I Really Like Girls," in which George proclaims his love of the fairer sex by repeating that he "really really really really really really likes girls," and then tells you what he likes about them, in case you were wondering. As usual, George reworks other old blues tunes like "Smokestack Lightning" and "Highway 49" (both Howlin' Wolf penned songs), a Chuck Berry song "You Can't Catch Me," and writes his own new standards, like "I Really Like Girls" and the absolutely hilarious now classic "You Talk Too Much," which any straight man in the world who's married or who's ever had a garrulous girlfriend (and who hasn't) can relate to. This is a solid album with no low points. It's one of his best, and probably one of his most commercial, but it's still George's very basic bare bones rock and roll. By the way, if you like George at all, you have to see him live because that's where he really shines. His live shows are still as good as anybody. He's a workhorse. I've seen him several times over the years and he's still great.

Even though he was Born to be Bad George Thorogood cant help but to put out great albums, this is just another example. Of course CD reviews are pretty much all opionated and someone else will probaly not agree but in my little world this is a great album.

3.0 out of 5 stars A solid offering... February 6, 2007
By Tom R
Format:Audio CD
Not the best Thorogood album out there, but it has a few really good songs, and everything is classic Thorogood. I recommend it for people who like Thorogood but want to hear something different than all the popular songs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Standard George Rock and Roll January 21, 2005

Okay, how the hell I'm the first to review this album is a mystery to me, but here it is. George Thorogood and The Destroyers released this record in 1988, and I bought it and still own it on vinyl. (I probably need to purchase the CD, hunh?) This was George still at really the height of his popularity - the mid 1980s -- and he was producing his own brand of standard rock and roll that was actually being played on the radio which was some kind of miracle.
