Anyway, the Cab Calloway tribute album was ok, but I have come accustom to expect an amazing album every time from BBVD and it let me down. With that, I was worried about this album. Had the lost their touch? Had they finally run out of great original material?
The answer is a resounding "No!" This album returns Big Bad Voodoo Daddy to what they are good at: writing and playing catchy tunes that make you want to get off your butt and dance. Every song is good, if not great. I get a huge smile on my face listening to this album. A particular favorite of mine is It Only Took a Kiss because it's the first original love song of theirs that my wife and I both heard for the first time while together. Another stand out for me is Gimmie That Wine. Drinking songs about wine always get me. Some other stand outs are Digga Digga Do, Why Me?, Rattle Them Bones, and... Hell, I love all of them.
Do yourself a favor and pick this album up. Show your support for this amazing band. May they never stop producing music that makes me want to Digga Digga Do!
The band's been together for 20 or so years, and no where is this more apparent than in the disc's third track, "The Jitters." This one will have you tapping your toes! The band's vocal talents are also self-evident when they ask the musical question, "Why me?"
BBVD get better and better with age!
This album is MOST STRONGLY RECOMMENDED!
But now "Rattle Them Bones" picks up right where "Save My Soul" left off. It's almost as if the past nine years was just an unusually long shipping delay.
The album begins with a bit of campy goodness called "The Adventures of..." which sounds like it was lifted right out of the soundtrack of a 1930's super-hero serial. We then slip right into three very old songs that have long been forgotten by all but the most diligent audiophile. "Diga Diga Do," "The Jitters," and "Let It Roll Again" pop with a vitality and clarity that the original versions would envy. "It Only Took a Kiss," the first proper original Scotty Morris composition of the album brings down the tempo with a sweet, romantic duet featuring Meaghan Smith. But then it's back to swinging business with three more original tracks, "She's Always Right (I'm Never Wrong)," "Why Me?" and "Devil's Dance." It may sound a cliché, but each of these is bigger and badder than the last. Next we take a sudden left turn with the unusual cover of an old Randy Newman track, "It's Lonely at the Top." The song was always meant to be ironic, but it sounds even more so coming from the humble and compassionate Scotty Morris. Another sweet ballad follows with "Still in the Mood." But the pace picks up again with "Gimme That Wine.Read more ›
