Exclusive World Premiere Single – Alex Dixon “Nothing New Under the Sun”

Omar Dykes Is "Runnin' With The Wolf"

What we really liked about this album is the fact that Dykes pays tribute without ripping off the originals or reproducing them note-for-note. (And why should he?) The album is lively, raw, and definitely has that Texas garage jam feel, and tone. The players do a fine job of keeping you right on the edge of explosion, without betraying the raw elegance of the music. This is an exceptional album!
