Album Review

The Slash years are compiled here, along with three previously unreleased tracks, forming the perfect overview of the Blasters' short recording career devoted to blues, country, and R&B. From the outset of their career, from "Marie Marie" to "Border Radio," it was clear Dave Alvin would be a songwriter to be reckoned with — one for the ages. Tracing his development through "Long White Cadillac" (later recorded by Dwight Yoakam), "Trouble Bound" (with the Jordanaires on vocals), and the hard country of "Dark Night," brother Phil Alvin brings the necessary heart, soul, and authenticity to the work, and the band is a master of their form. Few work or rock harder.

The real thing

Incredible music and song-writing. I must have brought the first Blasters album to a dozen parties to shake things up when the party slowed down. Worked every time. Rock on!

ROAD TRIP!!!!!

Put on drive to Vegas.

May be the best roots rock band ever

Dave Alvin's amazing hooks. Phil Alvin's unique voice. If these songs don't get you moving, you're on the dark side of the grass.
