Rosco Levee & The Southern Slide Get It Whil e You Can
Red Train Recordings
Having generated good reviews and acclaim through their first album, Final Approach To Home, Rosco and his band have reached ‘the difficult second album’ stage. But it’s anything but difficult to listen to. In fact, they all seem to be having a great time! There’s lots of energy in this blues-rock collection of songs which were recorded at Ranscombe Analogue Studios in Rochester, and it’s a fine vehicle to allow Rosco to sing and play guitar in his own forceful style. It’s very American in flavour and that’s a neat trick to pull off from this side of the pond! We particularly like the slide work on Whiskey Blues Goodnight, which contains the lyric “Get it while you can” (which gives the album its title). There are lots of musical contrasts too; it’s easy on the ear but never short of excitement, offering a great alternative to so much of today’s rock. The band is constantly working the rock and blues clubs around the UK, with a few festivals thrown in for good measure, but they’re also touring again soon to promote this album.
