Jimmy Thackery and the Drivers: True Stories (2003)
Returning with the Drivers, Thackery has penned nine originals and chosen two interesting covers. Thackery plays a serviceable slide guitar on "Got It Going On" and "Dancin’ With The Dawg." But it is his lead guitar on songs like "Being Alone" and "Blues Man on a Saturday Night" that lights up the sky like the Fourth of July. The center point of the recording is Thackery's take on Roy Buchanan's "The Messiah Will Come." Thackery's guitar floats over Ken Fatinson's Hammond B3. Here, Thackery ascends to the level of a Roy Buchanan or Danny Gatton, proving himself worthy of such company.
