Harley-Davidson Roadhouse Blues
The Right Stuff/Capitol
Title: Harley-Davidson Roadhouse Blues
Label: The Right Stuff / Capitol
Genre: Blues /Modern Electric, Chicago Blues, Acoustic, Texas, Contemporary
The American institution Harley Davidson motorcycles and some of the best blues players on the planet join forces on the Harley-Davidson Roadhouse Blues CD. The company sponsored this CD compilation and they advertise some of their product with pictures on the inside of the CD booklet. There is no doubt that they are one of the last great U.S. based companies and one of the few that have not farmed out all their work to China or some other poverty stricken third world country. The bike is synonymous with the height of freedom that becomes yours from riding and listening to music. Strangely missing is one the all-time favorite biker bands Canned Heat. Even so, the lineup is mightily impressive.
George Thorogood, James Cotton, Luther Allison, John Lee Hooker, Steve Ray Vaughan, Bonnie Riatt and a host of others contribute tracks to this CD, chock full of different styles of the blues genre. If you are in the mood for rowdy party blues, you will not find it on this CD, with the exception of "Shake Your Money Maker." That is not to say that you will not enjoy it, as it is all very good…just a bit mellower than the sustained hard driving energy that the electric blues always offers. The reason this is so? It is the wide variety of styles and artists offered on the recording. This can be a good thing when you are marketing a compilation and need to keep the listener's interest for 18 tracks, which is a lot of music. I certainly enjoyed listening to this entire CD. I have to admit that the variety kept me entertained straight on through. If you are looking for a lot of great blues music by several different artists, check out this ride, it is top of the line just like the motorcycle.
