Editorial Reviews

On their 17th studio album, George Thorogood and The Destroyers pay tribute to their Chess Records heroes, including many of Thorogood's legendary mentors who helped to launch his career in rock & roll. Titled 2120 South Michigan Avenue, the 13-track album will be released on CD, vinyl LP (with 1 bonus track), and digital download.


2120 features Thorogood's raw, rocking turn on classics by a who's-who of the blues, including Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Howlin' Wolf, Buddy Guy, Sonny Boy Williamson, Little Walter and other Chess greats, as well as new original songs written by Thorogood, the album s producer, Tom Hambridge, and Richard Fleming.


Named for the address of Chess Records Chicago headquarters, 2120 South Michigan Avenue is produced by musician, songwriter and producer Tom Hambridge, a four-time GRAMMY Award nominee and 2010 GRAMMY winner for Best Contemporary Blues Album and ASCAP Songwriter of the Year Award winner. The album's featured guests include 2010 GRAMMY Award winners Buddy Guy and Charlie Musselwhite.


This is the album George Thorogood was born to make.

Customer Reviews

Plenty of rock and roll and great blues.

This is the first CD that I've bought on a whim and liked this much.

A little change from the usual Thorogood, but a good one.

This is George Thorogood & the Destroyers' 15th studio album titled '2120 South Michigan Ave'. This CD (13 tracks) is a tribute to George Thorogood's Chess Records (located at 2120 South Michigan Avenue, Chicago, IL) heroes/legendary mentors. The overall sound is that of 60s rock/bluesy-rock/blues sound & he collaborates well with producers Tom Hambridge & Richard Fleming. Stand-out track is "Spoonful" : very melodical track. Great tracks include "Going Back" (bluesy-rock), "Hi-Heel Sneakers" (great vocals/duet & guitars featuring Buddy Guy), "Seventh Son", "Let It Rock" ('typical' 60s rock sound), "Two Trains Running(Still A Fool)" (bluesy track with great blues guitar & vocals), "Bo Diddley", "Mama Talk To Your Daughter", "Help Me", "My Babe" (great duet featuring Charlie Musselwhite), "Chicago Bound" (60s rock sound, great piano & guitar) & "2120 Michigan Ave." (great piano & featuring Charlie Musselwhite. This is the title track). On overall, this is a great tribute to George Thorogood's mentors/heroes in a 60s rock/bluesy-rock/blues style, quite well fitting to his heroes/mentors, a highly recommended CD listening.

This is more than a tribute album. It's a bunch of Blues disciples telling the truth that is Chess Records. The Destroyers have never been off course, nor have they ever forgotten their roots. For those of us who have followed the Destroyers since the La Pena days, well, it's a beautiful thing.

I have been a George Throrogood fan for as long as I have been old enough to appreciate the blues, a long time. This album is classic Thorogood in it's sounds and style. If you love the Destroyers this is a must buy.

So I'm listening to this right now... It's solid Thorogood but the VERY noticeable autotuning on his voice is making my jaw drop. Who thought that was a good idea? This music is all about feel, not about hitting your mark all the time. It jumps out on a couple of these tunes to the point of making me cringe. George is playing great, but whoever thought that was a good idea needs to be canned, ASAP. The other thing... I'm missing the sax so far. He's right on track with the slide playing. UGH! There goes the autotuning again. I may have to turn this one off and downgrade.
Update: OK, I've listened to the whole thing and the autotuning of the vocals just gets worse and worse. This is a really great album but it's been destroyed. I'm surprised no one else has commented on it... are we all so used to hearing T Pain that this sounds acceptable? Ugh. Downgrading to 3 stars because I don't think I'll be able to listen to those vocals again.

A perfectly good party to be sure, but -- pee-yew, there it is: Auto-Tune. Why, WHY?? (Note to George: I don't think Willie Dixon done it this way.) It's particularly galling on track two, "High Heel Sneakers" - right after GT name-checks all those legends on the first song. If they were alive, they'd dope-slap the idiot who ever imagined it was a good idea. It's all over "Bo Diddley," "Chicago Bound" and others. Amazing to me that somebody paying homage to the "real" music of the past would stoop to using one of "modern" music's lamest, stalest gimmicks.

Other than that, it's about as good a GT record you could hope for. I think boils down to: Do you consider Auto-Tune a tweak, or a crime against rock and roll? Proceed accordingly.

This album is amazing in the way that it retains Thorogood's distinctive style of rock and roll blues music. Most artists that have been around as long as George Thorogood are not able to keep the same style going in their new material, and this one does. I decided to buy this album after hearing two of the tracks on the radio. One of the songs I heard on the radio was Going Back. If you like rocking blues, you will love this album as much as I do. Just buy it and start enjoying it. This is the first CD that I've bought on a whim and liked this much.

I am a 64 year old man who has been a Blues fan since the age of 14....I have been a George Thorogood and the Destroyers fan for over 3 decades....I have almost every CD they have ever made, and have been to several concerts....I have got to tell you, this is by far the best the man has ever done....He just gets better with age...Every song on the CD is a winner...My favorites are Seventh Son, Bo Didley, and High Heel Sneakers....I cannot sit still when I play this CD, and in my opinion, music just doesn't get any better than this....ROCK ON GEORGE!

Listening to this CD the listener will immediately be aware of two things.
1) Thorogood and his band have a heartfelt appreciation for these songs.
2) It's easy for an artist to make a great CD when they love the material and are having a good time recording it.

At no time does 2120 South Michigan Avenue drag or sound uninspired. It's a great listen from start to stop.
It leaves me with the hope that George Thorogood will do a sequel and record a few more gems from the Chess Records catalog.
