George Thoroughgood first released "Bad to the Bone" in 1982. The disc was his major label debut, but little had changed from his previous approach: the album was still full of the straight-ahead hard-hitting blues-based rock his following had come to expect. Not surprisingly, little about that approach has changed in the decades following, which is one of the reasons the 2007 reissue still sounds relevant. The sound of his band, the Destroyers, can still peel paint, and the covers of Albert King, Jimmy Reed, and John Lee Hooker are full of bar-band bravado. Naturally, the title track, which has grown into an FM radio classic over the years, still shines, as does Thoroughgood's stinging slide work.
