"He said, 'If I could be a tear,
Rolling down your cheek,
And dying on your lips,
My life would be complete.'"
So whether he's singing about love scars, weedy roses, pimps or preachers, Paul Thorn has a lot to teach us about life and how to get out of it alive. Buy this record and you'll owe a debt of gratitude to Paul Thorn, pimp and preacher.
The first tune is a Beatlesque driving tune; You're Not the Only One. It's a "we're in this thing together" tune setting up our journey through the CD perfectly. Musically, it just makes me happy...the best compliment I can give any musician. Dr. Love's left hand is the star of this one musically to me. I thought of Lady Madonna the first time I heard it. It's not a rip off but a beautiful homage to that wonderful style of arranging a tune to suit the lyrics perfectly. This is a sympathetic tune. It tells the story of how we all feel sorry for ourselves and that is a Universal truth. We all struggle. On this album...the struggles are going to be shared. So here we go...
The next tune is the title track. Pimps and Preachers has slick melodic bass groove provided by Doug Kahan that sets up the lessons learned. Once again we've got hard knocks to go through but we have the source of Paul's advice set up in the last tune.Read more ›
