Unfortunately there are a few
instant throwaways too. which is
why. this really should have been
a single disc. "Tobacco Road"
starts off alright, but after bring-
ing the song to a close the group
doodles its way to a 17:13 extrava-
ganza. Luckily, though, it's the
only song on the side, so you don't
even have to lift the tone arm to
skip it. "Rock and Roll, Hoochie-
Koo." even though Johnny Win-
ter helps his brother out on this
one, is also pretty much of a stiff
due mainly to Johnny's incredibly
inept, inappropriate guitar play-
ing.
All in all, nothing strikingly ori-
ginal, just a lot of old R&B done
perfectly at times and acceptably
the rest of the time. If you can
use a little of that, then get out
the wine and let it rock.
