Product Description

On March 15, 2011, Lost Highway Records will release Scandalous, the sophomore album from Austin, TX-based garage soul ensemble Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears. Having spent the last two years building a considerable reputation with their high-voltage brand of blues, dirty soul, and rock 'n' roll, Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears take it to another level with Scandalous..Produced by Jim Eno of Spoon and featuring 11 new songs, Scandalous finds the young band returning with their modem and original take on classic American musical styles. There are still plenty of tight horns and hard-driving rhythms on tracks like 'Livin' In The Jungle.' 'Booty City,' and 'Black Snake,' but the new album is a decidedly more diverse and contemporary offering than its predecessor. Gospel punk burner 'You Been Lyin'' fits squarely alongside the country blues of 'Messin'' and the Stax-meets-Stones soul of 'Since I Met You Baby.' The raw funk creeper 'She's So Scandalous' stands out as an album highlight. Look for Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears on tour this spring in support of Scandalous

From the Artist

"People call us a soul band, but we're more of a rock & roll band," he points out.

"We feel like what we're doing is different from the soul bands with horn sections that are out there right now," Ernst adds. "We always joke that we would do that kind of music, but we're not good enough: our guitars are too loud, we're too primitive on our instruments, and Joe is more of a shouter and a talking-blues guy than a smooth soul singer. So we're carving out our own thing because it's the only way that we can do it. We can't play it any cleaner or smoother--and we don't want to, either."

"We pride ourselves on keepin' our own style and staying true to the guys we look up to," says Lewis. "We play the music that we like listening to. It's always about the music first."

Black Joe Lewis and The Honeybears Scandalous is the sophomore album from the Lost Highway Records band and it turns up the rock n roll and soul on this one.

In the family of Lost Highway Black Joe Lewis is the red-headed stepchild. This is not the usual Alt.Country/Americana the label is known and respected for. This is music you probably won't hear performed by a single acoustic guitar. in fact on about half the songs the guitar is probably the instrument you could most easily do without. Instead there's Horns, drums, bass aplenty. "Scandalous" sounds as if the J. Geils Band came over to James Brown's house to watch the Blues Brothers and listen to old Rolling Stones records before playing some blues/funk/rock themselves. Best song on the record: "Booty City". Reminds me of 70s J.Geils live albums. I might just get some of those out and put them on the record player now.

Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears dug deep and created somethin' special in "Scandalous!" This album will definitely make you restless and wanna get your groove on, be it on the dance floor or cruisin' down the highway! The Godfather of Soul, Mr. James Brown (R.I.P.) himself would wear out his dancin' shoes if hear what these fine men created!!! "Scandalous" is an album of funk n' soul rock n' roll with feel-good rhythm and blues. Call it what you will, I call it good! In this day and age, there just isn't many artists creating music with this sound. So, if you are lookin' for somethin' new to listen to, this is it! Buy the album!

This is an awesome follow up to their first album. Zack Ernst, Black Joe, and team, team up for another rock bustin, soul slappin, funky good time. Messin, Mustang Ranch, and the Junior Wells cover "Snatch it back and Hold it" really show the raw power of the bands talent. A must have for any music lover. Enjoy.

Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears are the the BEST funk, R&B and soul act around. Their first album was insane but their follow-up is even better. From the very first track, Living in the Jungle, the album is a testament to everything that funk and rock can be. Scandalous runs the gamut from blistering horn-infused Exile-era Stones (Living in the Jungle, Booty City, You Been Lyin') to guitar driven jams (She's so Scandalous, I'm Gonna Leave You) to neo-Otis Redding awesomeness (Since I Met You Baby). This is a great album. Black Joe Lewis is the only man living capable of standing toe-to-toe with the Godfather of Soul. Advantage... Lewis.

Recently bought a new turntable and ordered clear vinyl version of this in advance from their website. It arrived on day of release. Slapped it on and have listened to it straight thru 3 times. It also came with a second LP of some live recordings and some cover tunes. The whole thing kicks ass! I love this kind of stuff. Raw, not over produced. If this is what they sound like on record, the live show must be insane. Buy it now. Seriously.

First review on Amazon after buying too many CDs. Had to come out of hiding for this one. Amazing stuff here. I heard BJL live on XM Radio and was blown away. Real R&B and Soul lives. Stax returns. 39 minutes of rockin, rollin, sweatin, and groovin. First record was good. This one sets the bar real high for anything that follows. Sorry I can't catch them playing with Sharon Jones and the DK on tour. Wow.

I think that Black Joe Lewis and The Honeybears new cd from Lost Highway Records ROCKS!!! However, my favorite song is "Messin". Lots of blues going on and the horn section blows (in a good way). This is not a cd of songs for your young children....hehe.....but, you gotta own it cause BJL WILL be a household name soon. And you gotta go check him out live......

Enjoy!!! I know you will!!! Rock On BJL!!!

This sophomore album of BJL is just as stellar as his first. I close my eyes and feel like I'm at a garage party with James Brown.
No sitting for long due to a severe case of happy feet. This is really some fun stuff. He and the Honeybears certainly have a signature sound,
full of raw groove and punch, less the glitter. You want to have some fun, this is a great way to start your Spring season.
