Reviews for: SONNY BURGESS AND THE PACERS

Review:

The cover shows a picture taken in the fifties but this album contains recordings made during a trip to Spain by Sonny and the Pacers in 2007.Listening to the sound, the energy, the voice you wouldn't believe it's played by men in their 70. Burgess remains the wild man he was and the band has nothing to envy him (the sound of the guitar is almost garage at times).
Burgess roars and the Pacers rock ! All of the nine songs are covers (from the catalog of Carl Perkins, Hank Williams, Jerry Reed, Roy Head) but one (the well named instrumental "Gijon Breakdown"),going from rock'n'roll to blues, with rockabilly and country here and there.
Their enthusiasm and fun is infectious and you can only admire them for staying true to their music.
Fred "Virgil" Turgis - Jumpin from 6 to 6
