A Musical Influence Tribute Tour de Force

I could try and be really erudite but the "official" review covered all the really important bases. So, this is just one man's viewpoint. I was a big fan of the Sats, loving that slide work even when it was sloppy--like Woody's, it always had a lot of heart. Let me tell you about this album--it got me through my last year of law school, the bar exam (I passed), a divorce, the death of my second wife, long bouts of depression and unemployment and on into yet another marriage and a new life. This one freakin' album IS the soundtrack of a huge chunk of my life. And I'm still listening to it! Now, seriously, how many $9.90 investments have you ever made that pay dividends over a decade and a half! Buy it! But if you only want a couple of songs--in this order--Stellazine Blues, Six Year Gone (esp. if you're going thru a divorce) and Shake That Thing just to reassure yourself that, often, primal drives are the best drives!

An underparreciated gem

On my top five under appreciated albums of all time. The SATS are often dismissed as a southern novelty act of sorts, dating back to "Keep Your Hands to Yourself' but it's an unfair assessment. This is their corwning acheivement and can easily stand alongside most classic southern rock albums. Dan Baird's voice just exudes fun and trouble, a wonderful combination. If you have stumbled across this review and god knows that's what had to happen, please just buy the whole thing. If you are not that brave start with Another Chance, Six Years Gone and Shake That Thing to provide a sense of what it's all about and then move on to Sweet Blue Midnight and All Over But the Cryin', you will be glad you took the leap.

I concur with the last two guys on their assessments. I only give a four star because I love the GA Satellites first album so much. Check out the song, Red Light, about the p.o.'d chick in the Trans Am. And the cover of Rod Stewart's Every Picture, to the bone crushing Railroad Steel (I need a little bit of Coca Cola and shot of Ron Rico 151) now that's raw rock n roll. As was said before, a bit sloppy, but the best things in life are sloppy! Can you say,Rolling Stones? I love this album too, if it was a double, I'd give it a five for sure, you just got to take in the first helping as well. Also as before, "Keep Your Hands to Yourself" while a great rocking song was sort of like their "Achy Breaky Heart", it just tapped the surface and happened to hit on the radio. I am from Atlanta, so these guys and this type music is in my veins. They were, and still are my "REM"

Biography

Formed: 1980 in Atlanta, GA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s

At a time when rock & roll didn't care about its roots, the Georgia Satellites came crashing into the charts with a surprise hit single to remind everybody where the music had come from. The hit single, 1986's "Keep Your Hands to Yourself," rocked as hard as an old Chuck Berry song, as well as being almost as clever. The Satellites weren't a back-to-basics roots rock band, either -- their straightforward sound borrowed equally from Berry, the Rolling Stones, the Faces, Little Feat, and AC/DC, with...
