Mudcrutch by Mudcrutch
Released: Jan 2005
Label: Reprise
Maybe it was autumn years' nostalgia that inspired the issue of a Mudcrutch debut LP some 34 years after the band first formed, but Tom Petty's swagger here rivals any of his work as a younger man. Like many a geezer jam session, it opens with group vocals on a comfortable traditional (in this case, "Shady Grove"), but the album quickly rights itself with a slightly menacing single, "Scare Easy." The country inflections and wilting slide guitars that hold things together are played with cool sophistication, the answer to the prayers of Allman Brothers fans.
