This album is something of a mini Groovies reunion. It features Mike Wilhelm, Danny Mihm and James Ferrell along with some first rate songs including a blistering cover of 'Sympathy for the Devil' , a sea song 'The derelict' ...
" Ha-harrrrrrrrrrr mateys... I must confess I bought this superb album for the song 'The Derelict '(Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum), which is one of the best versions I have ever heard, along with the version by The Bilge Pumps - Craig Lutke and the rest of those old salty sea dogs - uh, from Texas.
I can vouch for the physical quality of this CUTOUT CD too. Perfect condition. Haunting and original cover art.
Chris, the singer with the Flamin' Groovies, has one of the best voices in Rock, and songs like 'If Wishes Were Horses' really are a showcase for his talent. Classic song, great singer.
Whether original songs or covers, Chris always delivers, and this is one tight backing band. A superb album which I would highly recommend, especially if you have a Pirate thing going on.
Arrrrrrrr... " S. Cain on Amazon.com
