Ponderosa "Old Gin Road"

Cruise around and listen to the radio and there are the haunting refrains of songs we have heard forever. Last night, “Sultans Of Swing” came on for the 30,000 time, not that that is bad, per se, I actually still like the gruffness of Mark Knopfler’s understated vocal. It just cooks right along, and the tune is timeless.

I saw Stacie Collins play at The Saxon Pub on Tuesday night, all rock and roll badass energy, sexual tension, wailing and harp blowin’ and shaking. And what a band, hot tight and tasty! They recall days gone by, when the music was as much a coming of age, a fertility dance, as it was heady and rich. And it is fun, you know it should be fun.

I am happy to introduce you to another band that harkens back to the old days. If you close your eyes, you could picture Ponderosa playing on The Midnight Special TV Show with the late Wolfman Jack. Wolf, we miss you. You know he would have loved these guys. Tonight the band from Athens, Georgia plays the 15th Annual River Revival in Atlanta, and the rest of their tour dates are here.

I am just gonna let it rip, no fuss, no muss, this is “Old Gin Road," from their recent release Moonlight Revival. Hell yeah!

Like the sound of the music - especially the percussion at the beginning of the song. The words don't come through clearly. Why don't you upgrade your mikes?

Oh Roberta, Roberta, Roberta. We sure get a kick out of your comments!
