DOC HOLLIDAY ‘Good Time Music ’
(MTM Music MTM068184) (2003)

This band have been very busy of late having a 'Best Of' (also on MTM) out in the summer and now this, the band's first new studio album since 1996. Main stay Bruce Brookshire is still on board along with Daniel Bud Ford (bass), Danny Lastinger (drums), John T Samuelson (lead guitar) and Eddie Stone (keyboards).

As you'd expect the band still play Southern rock although there is more of a country rock feel on some numbers such as 'I Can't See You' ? a number that would suit Bob Seger and 'Trudy'. But Doc Holliday can still rock as opener 'Black Cat' proves and its driving Hammond undertow ? Nice.

They also cover Skynyrd's 'Simple Man', which does the original justice, right down to the guitar solos. Bruce Brookshire's religious roots rear their head on 'Messiah', another rocker with plenty of slide guitar. Novelty track has to be 'It Suits Me Too', a simple acoustic blues based number and it reminded me of the great Taj Mahal. A treat to the ears! Only 'Farmer's Tan' mises the mark as it gets lost in a mid-tempo sound. Good return to form and a must for Southern rock fans.

*** OK, approach with caution unless you are a fan |
** Instant bargain bin fodder | * Ugly. Just ugly
