oh yeah and they're also from good old Akron, Ohio which is basically a neighboring county to where I live. Rep that hometown love, nigguh.

One of my favorite bands. I saw them in '02 when they were just starting off playing Kimbrough covers and "Heavy Soul." Magic Potion is a great album, but it is a change for them. Every song has a consistent feel/sound. It is a bit heavier and less bluesy. I prefer Chulahoma to this, but I still think Dan and Pat have done well.

rf and thick kick ass though.
Maybe I put that last a bit to strong. It's not a bad record, but the songs aren't as strong or fun as on the previous two records, although that may change with repeated spins. It's more rock than blues like 2morroland said. Maybe I just set the bar too high or something.

Pat is a ferocious drummer and Dan is probably the most soulful guitarist I had ever seen. The post-show meet-up was a little awkward but Dan had a good time when I asked him to sign his guitar pick which I caught with my ear! Going to make blues rock with that thing for years!

So, what are everyone's thoughts on Dan's solo album? I've heard it but haven't bought it yet. It doesn't jump out at you like BK music but perhaps after a few more listens...
