Popa Chubby’s ‘Two Dogs’ is one of his best ever albums. That’s no mean feat for an artist who has cut 36 odd albums in 25 years…
The King of The New York City Blues returns with what's destined to be one of the most topical and important records of 2004. Twelve tracks of hard hitting, politically inspired songs that run from upholding our first amendment rights in the hard thumping shuffle "Un-American Blues," to protesting the plight of young people dying for the lust of oil and power in "Young Men." Highlights also include "The Top Ten Reasons Why I Can't Sleep At Night," and a high-velocity, hard rock version of the Carter Family classic "Keep On The Sunny Side of Life." In a recent interview Popa was asked, "Where is the outrage in America? Where is the anger over the violation of our rights as Americans and human beings?" Popa simply responded "It is here, and people are waiting for a rallying call, a way and a reason to stand up for their rights as Americans. A way to stand up against the current policies of those in power that do not take in account that America is built on the sweat of the working class."
A rare find, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy's release Whatchu' Want for Christmas gives the listener a peek back @ one of todays original, 'classically fresh' and unique swing bands. This album is a mix of early recordings of their current hits, You and Me and the Bottle Makes Three Tonight (baby), Go Daddy-O, The Jungle Book favorite, I Wanna be Just Like You and, three Christmas tunes that promise to get you in a swingin' holiday mood. If there is one thing this album lacks it is the presence and "finishing touch" Josh Levy (piano, vocals) and Karl Hunter (alto, tenor & baritone saxophones, clarinet) provide in the band's current self titled release. Amidst all of the '90's swing' being thrown our way, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy offers an original yet classic swing sound that will leave you Jumpin' Jack… Go-Daddy-O!!
