CD der Woche: George Thorogood & The Destroyers: The Dirty Dozen

Einfach einmal mehr tolle Rock'nRoll R&B-Musik, die aus dem Herzen und aus dem Verstärker kommt... George Thorogood & The Destroyers - DJ FIDE's Lieblingsband!

By John Aiello:

Aside from Springsteen, it?s hard to find a rocker with more unbridled energy than George Thorogood and his band of destroyers. Here, fans will be able to bask in Thorogood?s return to the Capitol/EMI label ? this record featuring six new studio cuts along with six of his tried-and true classics. In essence, this album is about resurrecting the sacred marriage between blues and rock ? Thorogood?s signature guitar sharpening the edges of the presentation into his own definition of symphony. Along the way, Thorogood and the Destroyers cover the greats of the idiom, with pieces made famous by Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon and Chuck Berry showing just how far this band has come in the last 30 years. ?The Dirty Dozen? is jump-started by a thumping version of Dixon?s ?Tail Dragger? ? the raw emotion of the band driving the cut to black-and-blue heights as we wander the edge of the precipice in step with the ultimate guitar monster. In addition, Muddy Water?s ?Born Lover,? Bo Diddley?s ?Let Me Pass? and Chuck Berry?s ?Hello Little Girl? provide an introspective journey into the of heart of rock-n-roll blues that sired Thorogood and his band. In the end, ?The Dirty Dozen? brings us the best in rock and blues both past and present, pushing us to forever lose our souls in the dark swollen waves of its tapestry.
