Album Review

Conduct a search on the name "Doughboys", and a lot of info will come up about a Montreal, Canada-based alternative rock band that was active in the '80s and '90s. But the foursome that is heard on Is It Now? is a different band. These Doughboys were around long before the Canadian Doughboys, and they aren't Canadian; this garage rock/rock & roll outfit was active in northern New Jersey and New York City in the '60s (when they put out a few singles) and broke up at the end of that decade. Is It Now?, their reunion album of 2007, unites three people who were part of the Doughboys in the '60s (singer Myke Scavone, bassist Mike Caruso, and drummer Richard X. Heyman) with guitarist Gar Francis. Heyman, of course, has had an impressive solo career as a singer/songwriter, while Scavone was the leader of the '70s heavy metal/hard rock combo Ram Jam (of "Black Betty" fame). But Is It Now? doesn't sound anything at all like Ram Jam. The focus of this CD is '60s-style garage rock, and the Doughboys' allegiance to the '60s (especially the early recordings of the Rolling Stones) is impossible to miss on original material as well as gritty, memorable covers of the Rascals-associated "Ain't Gonna Eat My Heart Out Anymore" and Bobby Troup's "Route 66." The latter is a gem that was made famous by the Nat King Cole Trio in 1946 and became a major hit for the Stones when they covered it in the '60s; the Doughboys' inspired version is closer to the Stones' version, although not an exact replica. Is It Now? doesn't pretend to be groundbreaking, but lovers of '60s-style garage rock will find it to be an excellent and thoroughly rewarding reunion album for the Doughboys.

Customer Reviews

Great garage rock sound

I knew the lead singer in their good old high school days in the 60's. I loved their sound then and even more now. Great to be able to sit here in Florida and relisten to these Jersey boys rock again. Great album Myke, great sound guys. Bill Bond

This is really good stuff from a band that played back in the 60s and has stuck to that feel today. Tight riffs that only get better with each listen.Crank up your sound sytem to 11 and the Doughboys will heat that dough up to a perfect musical pizza that will make you come back for more.And more!! And yes IT IS NOW!!

I like it...

I liked the album very much but I'll always be more a fan of the Myddle Class. It's nice to see the Doughboy's on itunes.
