Album Review

If you buy into all the hype and the look, then all your standard journalistic clichés about "a man playing like he was possessed" would certainly seem to apply in the case of this record. Eric Sardinas has only one groove, and that's the one with the pedal put firmly to the metal. Playing electric Dobro gives his sound a raw, distorted edge right down to the wah-wah pedal that flirts with comparisons to George Thorogood and other ham-fisted slide rockers (he plays unamplified on his originals "Cherry Bomb," "Goin' to the River," and "Sweetwater Blues"), although Sardinas is a considerably more able player than Thorogood. Comparisons with Johnny Winter would also not be unfounded; he makes a guest appearance here on vocal and guitar on his "Tired of Tryin'." Hubert Sumlin is also brought aboard to reprise his original rhythm part of "Down in the Bottom," although he's totally swamped in the mix by Sardinas' over the top bombast, both vocally and instrumentally. Fans of the Stevie Ray Vaughan, Johnny Winter, and George Thorogood style of blues-rock will want to add this one to the collection.

Customer Reviews

Smokin'!!

This debut release of Eric's contains all the fire, energy and hunger that the man had inside him before breaking nation-wide. Although Black Pearls is also an exceptional album, his debut here features a little more passion and fire in his performances--more of his jaw-dropping slide soloing is also front-center stage. A must have for all slide blues guitar enthusiasts!!!

Phenomenal

Go see Eric live. You have no idea what rock and roll is until then. The End.

Instrumental Please!

The guitar work is fantastic. As great as the guitar playing is...that is how bad the vocal is. Kind of ruins the great music underneath.

Years Active: '90s, '00s

The term "blues-rock" brings with it a connotation of a blues artist "selling out" in order to make more money or a rock band blaring heavy riffs with a thinly veiled strain of blues. A worse offense is that many of these rock artists have little or no knowledge of the blues in its historical context or its mythological roots. That is certainly not true in the case of Eric Sardinas. At six, his first love was Delta blues, as it "was the thrill of hearing one person playing the guitar and generating...
