Georgia Satellites – Georgia Satellites

Here’s another I found elsewhere during my Scotty’s trip day. And after this post, there’s only one more to go until the end of this series!

The Beam Me Up Scotty’s Series, Part 24/25 (CD)

This is excellent southern barroom hard rock. Dan Baird’s turn of phrase and humour is charming and fun.

Keep Your Hands To Yourself, of course, kicks ass. Sometimes they really sound like the Crowes, and that’s OK. Hell, they even cover Rod Stewart’s Every Picture Tells A Story with aplomb.

But all the tracks here are surefire keepers. I love this sort of record. Put it on, rock along and don’t sweat the small stuff ‘cos it’s fun time, honey!


NB: I dunno what’s up with the sound on a few of these tracks. I had the good headphones on and the bottom end is huge, echoey, while the top end gets a bit buried. I know this on purpose, but it stood out, to me. Anyway, carry on rockin’!

      I noticed that! Actually, I had a memory of them turning up at the ol’ Dekester’s site so I checked it out… easy to love these guys, it’s just plain ol’ great rockin’ with just enough sass.

      Railroad Steel is a great one for sure.

    Y’know, I like Rick Richards due to his work with Izzy Stradlin, but I still haven’t bought a Georgia Satellites album. I take it this suffers from some 80s production, eh, quirks?
