MEDICINE HAT ‘Old Time Rock 'N' Roll’ Halo Records (2005)

Medicine Hat have been around for a while with a good reputation for live shows and what’s more a rarity for a UK based band in that they play southern rock!

Three tracks on here, two of which are live with ‘Old Time Rock ‘N’ Roll’ kicking it all off (a track made famous by Bob Seger) and it’s a fine version done by the band. The next two are live tracks, the band’s own composition ‘Cold Hearted Woman’ that rocks like a good ‘un. Some nice guitar breaks and vocalist Mark Jackson nails the song down nicely as he has the power to rise above the loud music.

Closing the CD is a cover of Steve Earle’s ‘Copperhead Road’ and again it’s a strong, guitar led version. Medicine Hat will appeal to fans of Skynrd, Molly Hatchett, Blackfoot and the more rocking end of country like Steve Earle.

Good taster of the band’s talents and I am sure with more exposure, particularly in the US, they could become an established favourite amongst southern rock fans.
