Product Description

After having played together for 19 years since recording their first CD, Whiteboy James and The Blues Express have re-recorded all the songs from their 1992 debut album. The years of experience and seasoning of these now veterans can be heard on Extreme Makeover. Playing all the songs that made this band an L.A. blues legend makes this release an instant Classic. Each song's storytelling paired with the high energy west coast style blues that Whiteboy James and The Blues Express helped define minus the 'explicit lyrics' from Whiteboy's previous release make this a must have for all blues fans, and even some who don't normally wander into the blues isle of the store.

Review

There's a proliferation of albums issuing from blues players most people never heard of, stars of their own local blues scene, honky tonk heroes who can put out some good sounds for shuffling drunks who turn out for their Friday night gigs. When these guys put out albums, they tend to sell a handful of copies off the table that gets set up at those performances, but it's hard as hell for talented musicians to gain attention or traction in times like these when competition for the entertainment dollar is so fierce.

And, in a genre that is essentially derivative, it's difficult for blues guys to create a distinctive sound that sets 'em apart from the crowd. But Whiteboy James does stand out on this album, mostly because he's got such a keen sense of humor. On songs like Big Butted Women and Night Train Wine, he can have you dancing and chuckling at the same time. But he's no novelty act. He's a vocalist with his own sound, and he's got a cracklin' band behind him here, with solid guitar work by Scott Abeyta, a guitarist I never heard of, but who's as good as more famous names everyone knows.

Whiteboy James has been around awhile, though fame has not yet found its way to his door. This album might not make him famous, either, but if you seek it out, it's going to show you a good time. --Chico News and Review

Looks like Whiteboy James and the Blues Express released this CD to bring their new fans up to date. If you don't have "The Last Time was the Last Time"
then you should check that out also...! Scotty on guitar is like an attack hound set loose on some crackheads.......He's unstoppable! Bass and drumming is solid with some attitude. I think I've seen their drummer in a commercial...?!?. Mr. James himself has such unique vocals with a deliberate style of delivery that you find yourself looking for the lyrics to see if he really said what he just said. My son thinks James is a professional smoker.......! My boy said he makes it look so fun that you want to try it too. he might be a pro drinker also).
If you have the luxury of seeing them live you'll walk away feeling like you know the band. Good times...GREAT Music..! Ripcat Records Artist. One more thing.....he might be the bastard child of[...]
I can't prove it but I've never seen them in a room together.
