Record Review: The Blessings – “Bare Bones” (Basementboy Records)

Blessings Shit kicking rock and roll. I’m not really sure why that is the description I apply to The Blessings and their debut album “Bare Bones” but it seems appropriate. Somewhat a cross between Sticky Fingers/Exile on Main Street Stones with early Black Crowes and Georgia Satellites, this CD is a great, honky tonk barrel ride of raunchy, boogie-woogie swamp rock (how’s that for a description!).

Hailing from Hollywood, the boys of The Blessings have some absolutely first rate, fun rock and roll on this album and they are also the authors of one of the greatest lines in a song when they sing in “Drink in Her Hand”

“In the bar or all alone
She knocks them back like she’s George Jones”

Just that line alone tells me that these guys know what rock and roll is all about. Have a listen and I know you’ll agree with me. Great stuff.
