Cub Koda : guitar , vocal , harmonica
This disc is one of the nicest musical surprises I have had in quite sometime. Just music in its purest form, Cub as the blues troubadour armed with just his acoustic guitar, voice, harmonica, and nine really contagious tunes, all penned by Cub. The intimacy of this disc is really haunting, and it makes you feel like the Cubmaster is in your living room performing just for you. Dishing out this collection of tales that take you through the gamut of human emotions, and then some. Throughout Koda's career with Brownsville station and as a solo artist, he has covered everything from rock and roll, to the blues, to rock-a-billy, to jazz, and more, and in the process has become a bonafide electric guitar hero. So with "Box Lunch" his first solo acoustic guitar outing Cub is adding a new dimension to his truly remarkable career. And yes the Cubmaster has got some terrific acoustic guitar chops, and yes he's still "Smokin' In The Boys Room". This one is definitely a keeper.
