Train Rolls On

Train Rolls On by Mississippi Mudsharks
Released: Jun 2006
Label: Double Barrel Records
Mississippi Mudsharks are three hefty blues rock he-men from, well, San Diego, actually; their frontman, Scottie Blinn, calls himself "Mad Dog." Guests help out on pedal steel (two songs) and "chain" (one). Their album-opening title track ain't quite the "Train Kept a Rollin'" it wishes it was, and neither is the bleh ballad "Slow Rollin'" they close with. But in between, they've got shuffles evolving into badass boogie, bike-leather rockabilly ("Crimson Sky" and "Devil's Road"), and some gratifying Black Oak Arkansas and ZZ Top tendencies -- the latter most notably in "Throw It in the Hole."
