Two gospel numbers and James Brown’s “Please Please Please” ignite as well—and the opening crunch of Oscar Brown Jr.’s River Styx-set “Mister Kicks” suggests where The Rolling Stones learned to express sympathy for the devil.

That such great music emerges from where the freeways meet redeems all the sins of the San Gabriel River.

Lover of Great music

IF you are a Blasters fan, or Dave Alvin fan or just a Blues fan or whatever, just BUY this one LOST TIME, without hesistation or further delay. It is a TRUE GEM. Dave's guitar is stellar and Phil's vocals strong as ever, has not lost a thing over time. This is a SIX Star blues effort !
Thank You Dave and Phil
