Molly Hatchet 1983 No Guts ... No Glory (LL)





Genre: Southern Rock
Rate: 257 kbps VBR / 44100
Time: 00:41:24
Size: 78,28 MB

United States

With big, bad Danny Joe Brown back in the saddle and ridin' high, Molly Hatchet returned in 1983 with the release of No Guts... No Glory. Brown was missed in a major way during his hiatus, as Jimmy Farrar attempted to hold down the fort. From the off, Danny Joe's rough 'n' ready pipes augment the killer Hatchet three guitar assault, as the tight trio of Dave Hlubek, Duane Roland and Steve Holland lock-in and kick ass throughout the majority of the nine song No Guts... No Glory LP.

Produced by the ever-steady Tom Werman, No Guts... No Glory featured a new M.H. rhythm section, as bassist Riff West and drummer B.B. Bordan debuted during the studio sessions. With a kickin'-up-dust, pistol packin' album cover shot of the group gracing the front sleeve of Molly's fifth album, there was no doubting the fact that Danny Joe and company were dialed-in during the recording of No Guts... No Glory. Album opener "What Does it Matter?" packs Blackfoot-like muscle, which segues into the chainsaw guitar riffin' of "Ain't Even Close". The strong pair of intro tracks give way to "Sweet Dixie", a stars 'n' bars rebel roar for Southern boogie, which takes on a Lynyrd Skynyrd vibe. (JonFox)

01 - What Does It Matter 03:33

Git Gone 1998 Gone Rockin'





Genre: Rock & Roll
Rate: 204 kbps VBR / 44100
Time: 00:38:23
Size: 55,21 MB

United States

Git Gone offers a snappy collection of mostly original rockabilly numbers rooted solidly in the Hi-Fi, pre-FM music radio era with Gone Rockin'. Sharon Ward's upright bass slappin' style and strong vocals, coupled with Lee Potter's beat, provide the rhythm for this trio's effort. Fast-moving rockin' flow, lots of echo and plenty of reverb are core to this CD, with 14 cuts averaging about three minutes apiece. The music runs the gamut of rockabilly, including Johnny Horton, Johnny Cash, Scotty Moore, and Everly Brothers; but guitarist Jim Stringer's licks and phrases remain fresh, clear, and just plain fun to listen to.

On the first cut, "Paralyzed", Stringer's cool, shuffle picking intro, Ward's strong, wakeup-call vocals, and Potter's steady tap-shoe high hat are enough to empty the chairs and walls at any dance hall. "This Time" features swingin' lead licks that sound like pedal steel sustain, and more hooks than gramps' tackle box. A hapless turista in Mexico discovers that bar stool lessons "en Espanol" are not free, as he runs out of dinero in the ballad "Fiesta In Guadalupe". "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'" is ready-made for showcasing Ward's vocals and that classic bass neck run. You know these are pointy boots. Stringer's production on this disc is exceptional. Although the instruments are few, the sound is full, it's high fidelity at its best. (Stereo? Don't need it!) When not being played, Gone Rockin' occupies space on my shelf alongside among Gene Vincent, Monte Warden and Robert Gordon. That's good company. (http://nodepression.com/)
