5.0 out of 5 stars He's so smooth he's almost not singing..., May 8, 2004
This review is from: Slick Night Out (Audio CD)
That's how one of my friends summed up the wonderful, butter-smooth voice of T. B. Ferster, the lead singer of the Atlanta-based Donkey. Donkey was known early on as a lounge band, and this is their first album, from that period, which includes a trombone and a saxophone (as well as drums and guitar) in the five man line-up, and gives the band a rather unique sound. As fans all over the South know, Donkey is at their best performing live, and on Slick Night Out, a live album recorded at Atlanta's The Point, they're truly in their element.
There's not a bad song on this album, but some of the stand outs are Sweet Vermouth ("There she is, the one that broke me down ... and here we stand, separated by three words / three words like 'I love you.'"), Baby Mae ("Come on and touch my secret space / yeah, what about that secret spot / that spot's so hot it could start a lot in this smoky room..."), It Was Forever ("It was forever, even though I wasn't sure / I thought forever would be just like the brochure..."), Bottle on the Mantle ("I didn't go looking for a fight / I relaxed too hard last night / now I'm laying here / not again"), and Last Dance.
Donkey's songs all tell a story of one sort or another, and really draw you in. This is one of my favorite albums, and I've gotten a lot of my friends hooked too. The unique character of the songs, Ferster's magnificent voice, and the unique sound makes Donkey like no other band. I highly recommend this album!
