4.0 out of 5 stars Always Tinsley March 19, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Liked the album, not quite as refined as his newer stuff. This guy has grown on me. He has one great song after another and his covers are good to. I like his style of play and this album you can hear the progression coming towards where he is now. i have not heard anything bad by Tinsely including this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Tinsley Ellis Album July 4, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Quite a long time ago - maybe as much as 20 years - I saw a PBS program that featured a lot of the music on this disc. The performance was so dynamic that I bought this, originally as vinyl, then as a cassette tape, and this is the second CD as I wore out the first. This is really the best Tinsley Ellis album; the others are just not quite the same. I think blues and rockabilly fans will enjoy it.

Cool On It

Alligator ALCD 3905

Tinsley Ellis effortlessly blends gritty urban blues with edgy rock and roll. Born in Atlanta, and raised in South Florida, Ellis picked up the guitar as a youngster. Despite attaining regional success with the Heartfixers in the Southeast, he abandoned the group in 1987 with the goal to achieve national prosperity. This album was originally released in 1986 on Landslide Records. The recording brought Ellis to the attention of Alligator Records, who originally signed him in 1988. In 1991, Alligator re-released it "so more people could discover Tinsley Ellis and this terrific band". You can use it to relive the explosion of the birth of modern blues/rock.

"Drivin' Woman" sounds similar to Buddy Guy's "She's Out There Somewhere". On it, Ellis heartily roars out the vocals, and mixes Chicago blues guitar with rock guitar on a fiery lead break. During the title track, Ellis' pipes have as much presence as his simmering guitar. This begins a kinetic force that doesn't stop for 39 minutes. There is a Stevie Ray Vaughan tone present on these first two tunes. In addition to Ellis, two fellow band members sing. Rockabilly blues and someone's Walter Trout-like voice appear on "Hong Kong Mississippi". The vocals on "Second Thoughts" combine 1950s Elvis with 1970s George Thorogood. "Tulane" is a tribute to the forefathers of rock and roll - Chuck Berry and Johnnie Johnson. The spunky instrumental, "Greenwood Chainsaw Boogie", contains some aggression. The song begins to provide a glimpse into Ellis' future music. As does the touching instrumental "Sailor's Grave On The Prairie".
