Omar Dykes is back with another solid record of blues rock. There are ten
co-writes out of the eleven tracks featured on the album and guests include
drummer Terry Bozzio (Frank Zappa/Jeff Beck) and the former Stevie Ray
Vaughn & Double Trouble rhythm section of Chris Layton and Tommy Shannon.
As the album title suggests you get boogie and blues in big doses, with
some cracking tunes and little over indulgence guitar wise. Pick of the crop
has to be the driving title track, the political ‘White Crosses’ and
‘Shakin’. Omar Dykes has been recording and playing since the 70’s and
certainly deserves a listen. A very solid album that is great for late night
listening and of the highest calibre musicianship wise.
