Jimmy Thackery and Tab Benoit: Whiskey Store (2002)
What truly makes this album one of the best records this year is that each individual part not only adds their own flavor and style to the recording, but also meshes and blends with the others to form a perfect blues gumbo.
Practically of note on this album is the Benoit standard “Nice and Warm,” and the Colin Linden and Anders Osborne penned original “Away, Away Too Long.”
A nice surprise that I haven’t taken out of the CD player yet!
