Anderson: "Even Things Up"
Anderson was born in Detroit, and grew up to become
the creative partner of one of the most significant
country artists of the 1980s, Dwight Yoakam."
"Even Things Up is [also] a return to the blues-rock
sound that he showcased on Working Class, his first
solo effort. "Honky Tonk Girl" kicks things
off with Anderson's big, twangy guitar perfectly straddling
Chicago blues and California country swing. His punchy
solo keeps the chooglin' beat rollin' down the road
like an out of control semi. " ~ www.allmusic.com
Dog Taylor & the Houserockers: "d:o"
Records, Chicago's leading contemporary blues label, might
never have been launched at all if not for the crashing,
slashing slide guitar antics of Hound Dog Taylor."
"The first album and the perfect place to start.
Wild, raucous, crazy music straight out of the South Side
clubs. The incessant drive of Hound Dog's playing is best
heard on "Give Me Back My Wig," "55th Street
Boogie," and "Taylor's Rock," while the
sound of Brewer Phillips' Telecaster on "Phillips'
Theme" gives new meaning to the phrase "sheet
metal tone." One of the greatest slide guitar albums
of all time.
