Since joining Roomful Of Blues in the early nineties, Chris Vachon has grown immensely as a musician, engineer, producer, guitarist, and band member...
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!
This album is at once subtle, classy, well executed, and well played. It is a cut above. Perhaps the best thing about The Best of Don't Call Her Larry Blues Mix is that it is a whole lot of fun.
Recorded at Bearly's House of Blues in Halifax, Live In Halifax is varied, soulful, and the next best thing to being there at a 24th Street Wailers show. The great thing about this album is that it accurately captures all the energy and talent of the band, and the appreciation of the audience.
