Black Stone Cherry
Black To Blues
Recorded quickly in the same studio as their 2016 epic Kentucky, this EP of covers of blues classics doesn’t upset any apple carts. The heavy, clipped beat and fuzz and rumble of guitars on Willie Dixon’s Built For Comfort show the band applying their style to the blues pretty straight. Howlin’ Wolf’s Champagne And Reefer becomes a timeless pro-dope plea, although Chris Robertson’s voice inevitably sounds flimsy compared to the Wolf’s razorgargling growl. Palace Of The King, written in 1971 by Stax Records mainstays Don Nix and
Southern rockers bow to the blues.
