Black Stone Cherry

Black To Blues

Classic Rock - - The Hard Stuff -

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.
