I have been a fan of Too Slim & the Taildraggers for a while now, but it is the progression of the last couple of albums that have made me more of a fanatic. I have come to expect more out of the band and "Too Slim" with each album, and the last couple have not disappointed. Shiver continues this upward progression and I'm not sure what they will be able to do for an encore but I can't wait to find out. I have listened to this disk straight through about 5 times since I got it last week and it is still growing on me. The title track is, in my opinion, the best on the album and one of the best in their entire catalog.

I have one regret and that is that I have never been able to see this group live (I live on the other coast). The live tracks that they have released clearly show that they are probably at their best live, in a smokey bar with the amps turned up to 11. Shiver in particular has that feel to it, horns blasting, etc. Maybe someday they will release a "live" studio recording, similar to what the Black Crowes have done.

With that said, if you are a Too Slim fan you have to own this and if you aren't yet, Shiver should turn you into one.

Too Slim and the Taildraggers
Shiver

[...]

By James "Skyy Dobro" Walker & Amy Walker

12 songs; 54:00 minutes; Library Quality

Styles: Patented Too Slim Music; Contemporary American Rock and Roll; "Alt-Country-Dirty-Rock with a Blues-Vibe"

Earworms: they are the songs and phrases from songs that get repetitively stuck in my head. But, the songs I hear are ones already in existence. Way beyond me is Tim "Too Slim" Langford who has creative vision to hear songs that do not yet exist. Slim begins hearing music in its embryonic stage and eventually knows what a song should sound like before it is ever recorded. For example, Langford told me he could hear Curtis Salgado singing "Everybody's Got Something" before he ever invited Curtis to sing the lyrics.

"Shiver" with its 12 original songs is Langford's most fully realized and most ambitious project yet. And, with 15 prior CDs, he has had lots of practice. Too Slim explained, "As the songwriter, I end up hearing the songs in a complete way [before they are recorded]." On previous CDs, "I ended up making compromises" due to hired producers and geographic distances preventing complete control. "On this one I felt like I knew exactly what I wanted, and I got it!" The album was produced, engineered, recorded, mixed and mastered in Langford's home of Seattle WA enabling Too Slim to be there everyday. Plus, co-producer Conrad Uno at Egg Studios "had really good ears, and we hit it off like that! We were just always on the same page."

Demonstrating Langford's growth, maturity, and musical mastery, "Shiver" contains many firsts for a Too Slim and the Taildraggers CD.

Well, I'm Embarrassed to admit it but..Where have I been...? I bought Shiver by TST on album cover art alone and am I happily surprised! Seems they have been around for ages and I somehow missed them. Excellent mix of Rock & Blues Rock all dressed up and ready to go. Seems they draw from a great background of Rock & Blues from the past. Bands like Savoy Brown, Early Elton John(I know, but the rocker stuff), Marshall Tucker, Jimi(last name not necessary is it), Clapton, ZZT, SRV and a few more. That's not a knock on TST, it's a compliment. Vocals are great, no, I mean GREAT and Langford's guitar work is better than excellent. The B3 of Joe Doria could not be better, he is just a great one and never over plays, just seems to know exactly how to dress up and decorate a song. Not one week song on this CD as far as I am concerned. Shoot,the vocals and tune "Shiver" could have been on any album back in the Big Hair-Glam Rock days and done very well, that one caught me off guard. I absolutely love "She Sees Ghost" lyrics are excellent and good pick me up tune, gets you going and fun. "Everybody's Got Something"(vocals by Curtis Salgado are perfect and this might be the song of the CD but then there's "She Sees Ghost" and no that's no joke), "Daddies Bones" is a Great One(reminds me of a riff by New York's great Guitarist Chad Sonenberg of now defunct bands "The Fool" & "Janet Speaks French", if you never caught Chad live well he was absolutely amazing), "Inside Of Me"(Maybe this is the song of the CD, oh there's Joe again on the B3),"Shiver" and then ends with "Bucerius", what a fun and cool way to end the album, reminds me of the beginning of a Surf Movie starting with someone talking over it as it begins....plus part of the song track reminds me of a Fave "Beatles" song named "Anna".Read more ›

Too Slim and the Taildraggers albums are a must have for any blues collection. Love their originality and the message of their music. Tim Langford always delivers smoking hot guitar leads and never fails to inspire listeners with his music. Love it Love it Love it.

I'd have to say that this album is pretty good indeed. I had never heard of Too Slim and his Taildraggers (probably because I live in the upper midwest) but I bought this CD on a whim and low and behold the 1st track "Stoned Again" has this really great intro and it really cooks. The song is strong all the way through.

The next track, "Daddies Bones" is cool too, the lyrics weave a tale about a father who was probably not a "Bad Man" just an outlaw who got hooked up with some bad men and paid for it with his life, though no one can prove it because no one can find him or a body. Which in turn his family is suffering because of it and if they can at least prove he's dead they won't loose their home. Now that is a tale that is about as "Americana" as you can get. I really dig this track too.

The next song that really stood out for me was "Everybody's got Something" Really great guitar work while the singer lets the listener hear that deep down we are all basically the same and that we all basically share common ideas and yet the world is still full of the things he sings about, "We all want to believe that people don't lie" and "We all want good times because we've all had it bad" A common thread type song, well written and as I said I love the riff in the bridge part of the song.

Bucerius is a slower number but equally cool I like this one because it's a slower song and the producers and engineers really had an ear for what they wanted to hear, crisp and bright clean tones in the guitar here. There are some others that are a little corny Like his dog seeing ghosts but I guess he is being honest, my grandmother swore her dog could too.

I'd have to say I dig this album and I would give his others a listen on the strength of this one.
