And I have what is hopefully a delightfully diverse drove of ditties for your drinking and driving endeavors. Those are words with a D this time.
First up, the "real" Stillwater. A southern rock band with quite a soulful vocalist in the form of one Jimmy Hall. One thing I find funny, and it's not just these guys, but it seems to be southern rock bands in general have way to many friggin' people in their bands. I still remember the old .38 Special videos from the '80s with Donnie Van Zant standing with a guitar hittin' barre chords that couldn't possibly have been part of the music, plus there was only one guitar playin' at the time. Anyways, 7 dudes in this band (and a bass player named Allsion that looks like a dude so I will go with dude) and on any given song I hear at most a 5 piece band (and that's during the solos). 3 guitarists???? Well, that isn't to detract from the solid groovin' contained in this here slab o'tuneage. Best cut is the minor hit Mindbender but Sam's Jam, Fantasy Park and Rock N Roll Loser are all worthy of your ear for pure southern satisfaction.
Another one I posted many moons ago in the early daze of this blog, and nobody much wanted it, cuz it was missing a couple tracks. Well here it is again, this time all tracks present. And I have also dug up the 2nd album, Fever Shot, and put it here. I do have the 3rd and album too, but it is pretty wasted and I'm going to have do some work on it, but if interest is there I will get up here. Promise.
And here's the followup.
As promised, the full LP of Vardis.
Love that blurb on the cover!!!
