CUT IN THE HILL GANG- Mean Black Cat LP. Cut in the Hill Gang are from Cincinnati. It’s Johnnie Walker from the Soledad Brothers, Reuben Glaser, the frontman of Pearlene, Lance Kaufman, the frontman of a rockabilly band called StarDevils, and includes James Leg of the Black Diamond Heavies. This record is a sweaty summer night in a dirty bar with an undersized air conditioner. It's what the term “Deep Blues” was coined for and is completely primal and finds the essence of rock and roll and just doesn’t give it back. Recommended.
