Big Shoulders' debut disc took a melting pot approach to a broad range of American roots music, creating a unique sound. On the 2d CD, they left the melting pot at home and put a broader array of ingredients on display. In addition to the core blues/rock/New Orleans influences, this album includes an Irish jig ("Big Jig"), a waltz ("Last Girl On Earth"), and a howlingly funny polka about everyday life among the working class white ethnics ("The Sout'west Side Polka").
Highlights include an uptempo blues guitar/harp instrumental ("At The Tracks"), a stomping rock attack on sanctimonious meddling fundamentalists ("Heal Yourself") and Ken Saydak's soulful solo piano & vocal number, "America, Meet Me Tonight."
Well written songs, well played & sung. It's not quite at the level of their astounding debut, but it's awfully good stuff that any fan of roots music ought to have.
