HOOKERS & BLOW 'Hookers & Blow' Album Review By Ray West

Album Review By Ray West

Boston Rock Radio

 

 

 

Hookers & Blow,​ the now legendary project formed by longtime Guns N' Roses keyboardist Dizzy Reed and Quiet Riot guitarist Alex Grossi,​ recently hit the studios last year to record a covers album that has now been released via Golden Robot Records.

There are some bands that try to put together a cover album of original music and wind up sounding exactly like the bands they cover because they don't know who they are.  Well, Hookers & Blow don't have that problem. They know who they are and what they sound like.

Hookers & Blow are LA swagger, and they've managed to put that style and sound on each and every song with great attention to detail. What they've done is put their sound and style on a cool eclectic collection of classic hits.

From "Rocks Off" to "Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting" and every song in between, this album is a good time, and who doesn't love to hear a good version of Eddie Money's "Shakin"? That song always reminds me of going to parties back in the days of MTV! It also reminds me of how silly my hair looked back then.

I love the way everything sits in the mix on this album. It's a sonically sound piece of work that's loud and cool with sharp edges. I'm a fan of great vocals, and I dig that they do not try to mimic the original singers or do any unnecessary acrobatics. Instead, the songs are skillfully sung in a style I find easily listenable. Hookers & Blow is a fun album, and my new guilty pleasure, just like hookers and blow, but way less expensive.
