RACING CARS Second Wind Angel Air SJPCD245 (2007)

Racing Cars

New album (sixth in total) for the 70s British rockers who have reformed and been touring over the last few years.

The vocals here are very husky, from the opening track of 'The Wrong Road' with its catchy chorus, Morty’s vocals are akin to early Rod Stewart. Soft as in not rough of the Dan McCafferty kind, but very husky. The music mixes mid 70s rock with blues and funk; the guitar chopping some decent riffs.

The chunky guitar, with bursts of slide, on 'Waving Not Drowning' nod at the funky end of southern rock.

The softer sound to 'Hate to See A Woman Cry' nod more at the MOR period Rod Stewart; soft rock meets ballads.

'Cuckoo Spit' is just out and out hard rock, a nod at Bad Company and Nazareth.

These extremes blend into some fine tracks later on, making for a largely fine album.

Definitely well worth a listen, especially if you like 70s rock with modern production.
