Grady – Good As Dead

Yup, I’m a bargain hunter. She Said Boom! has bins where all the CDs are $1. Granted, many of them aren’t worth your time if you don’t like scratches or other flaws, or if you require complete packaging like booklets, but if you are willing to do some digging, you can sometimes find some treasure in amongst the majority. And me? Of course I found some goodies!

I Wanna Taranna Pt. 36: She Said Boom! #3, $1 Deal #1: Grady – Good As Dead


I do love Grady records. Straight up barroom bluesy rockin’, baby, yeah! Y’all know this Texas-based bunch of brawlers is made up of Gordie Johnson (Big Sugar), ‘Big’ Ben Richardson (Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Double Trouble), and a rotating cast of a few other members. For this 2009 outing, Nina Singh played drums and added backing vocals. 

What a gorgeous blues-drenched ripper this album is. Apparently folks call this Cowboy Metal, which I can also hear on tracks like Truck Stop In La Grange, a country-blues-ZZ Top excursion oh man. If you liked the heavy blues rock of Big Sugar’s Five Hundred Pounds album (as I did), you’ll absolutely love this.

Not a song here is mediocre, and they’ve got this damned sound nailed the hell down. There’s even a pummeling nasty-blues cover of the Tragically Hip’s Boots Or Hearts. 

Seriously, this record smokes.
