iTunes Review

Savoring his recovery from major heart surgery in 2009, Peter Case went into the studio with drummer DJ Bonebrake of X and guitarist Ron Franklin of Gasoline Silver and cut live to two-inch tape this twelve-track album that sounds like a rockabilly-blues band having fun on the weekends. The sound is thick with tremolo-ed guitars and greasy beats that come from the ‘50s dirtiest blues records. Throw in a vocal delivery that tips towards the late Lux Interior of the Cramps and the tunes take on an otherworldly quality. “Dig What You’re Putting Down” is the sound of a hard-rockin’ trio enjoying their work. “Thirty Days In The Workhouse” is the sound of an iron-hard road gang taking it to the streets. “Ain’t Got No Dough” is an ageless, rough-and-tumble rockabilly number for the working man. “Somebody Told The Truth” slows things down for a funky swamp blues number. Case is in gritty form. Bonebrake is relentless and Franklin colors within the lines, just barely, for this ragged celebration of life.

Classic

Beautiful album considering what every other artist is trying to do. This piece of work evokes the greats of this type of genre. Haha I love this album!!. Go "sleazy chill cigarette smoking rock'n'roll!."

Really Classic

Went to his concert in Claremont a few weeks ago. Really diggin' his style. He's an awesome guy.

You'll Dig "Wig!"

Raw and dirty blues from an incredible songwriter. The tunes on this CD have an immediacy and vitality that is a rare find nowadays. I read online that most all of these tracks were recorded live in the studio and there is definitely a loose vibe to the songs. My favorites of the bunch are "Words in Red" and "Ain't Got No Dough". It's great to hear Peter rockin' out here!
