George Thorogood And The Destroyers

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

2120 South Michigan Ave.
New - LP - 5099902933818
Sealed 2011 Limited Edition 2LP Original. Includes The Vinyl Only Bonus Track "Sweet Little Rock And Roller." “George Thorogood & The Destroyers Have Never Made Their Debt To Chess Records A Secret, So An Album-Length Tribute To The Home Of Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Willie Dixon, Chuck Berry, And Bo Diddley Is A Logical Move For The Rough And Tumble Blues-Rockers. This Is So Firmly Within Thorogood's Wheelhouse That 2120 South Michigan Ave -- Its Name Saluting The Chicago Address Of Chess Studios And The Rolling Stones Instrumental Saluting The Hallowed Location, The Stones' Song Turning A Young Thorogood On To The Wonders Of Chicago Blues -- Feels Like It Could Have Been Recorded At Any Stage In His Career. Only The Odd Instance Of Auto-Tune -- And It Is Truly Odd On An Otherwise Rocking Version Of “High Heel Sneakers” Graced By A Cameo By Buddy Guy -- Marks This Album As A 2011 Release, And That’s A Good Thing: The Destroyers Are Always Best When They Stick To The Basics Which These Ten Chess Covers, Two Newly Written Tributes, And Stones' Cover Are. Thorogood’s Specialty Has Never Been Subtlety, So Barreling Through These Tunes At A Breakneck Pace Is Par For The Course, But What Makes The Record Work Is The Group’s Palpable Love For The Material, And Producer Tom Hambridge’s Willingness To Leave Some Grit In The Grooves, An Inclination That Largely Mitigates His Temptation To Occasionally Dabble With An Auto-Tune That Is Entirely Unnecessary For Music This Simple And Raw.” – S.T. Erlewine, AMG more
Better Than The Rest
New - LP - MCA 3091
Sealed 1979 Original With Custom Hype Sticker And The Original Appletree Records Price Tag On The Shrink Wrap. First Sealed Copy We Have Ever Had In Stock. “Recorded Before They Had A Recording Contract, This Set Of Tunes Wasn't Released Until The Guys Had Made It Big With Their Second Rounder Album, But Nonetheless, Better Than The Rest Is More Than Mere Demos. Full Of R&B And Early Rock, Highlights Include Chuck Berry's "Nadine," Howlin' Wolf's "Howlin' For My Baby," And John Lee Hooker's "Huckle Up Baby." While Better Than The Rest Doesn't Truly Add All That Much To The George Thorogood Catalogue, It Doesn't Damage It Either, A Nice Souvenir Of When This Band Was Just Starting Out. Raw, But Right.” James Chrispell, AMG. more
George Thorogood And The Destroyers
Used - LP - 3013
1977 Original Debut Album. Includes Their Cover Of "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer." Glossy, Unplayed Condition. “It's Easy Enough To Trace The Lineage Of Every One Of The Ten Cuts On George Thorogood & The Destroyers' Self-Titled 1977 Debut. Even The Originals, Of Which There Are Only Two, Wear Their Influences On Their Sleeve, So There's Not A Minute Of This Album Where The Presence Of Hound Dog Taylor, Elmore James, Bo Diddley, And John Lee Hooker Loom Large. Not One Of Those Bluesmen Ever Played With Much Finesse, And Thorogood Picked Up That Thread And Ran With It, Playing So Hard The Group Seemed Like A Gang Of Primitives. No Wonder They Chose The Name "The Destroyers": They Ruined Everything In Their Path. This Brutal Attack Is One Reason George Thorogood & The Destroyers Feels Distinctive, Even When The Lifted Elmore Riffs, Bo Diddley Beats, And Wild, Careening Houserocker Rhythms Are Blatantly Obvious: As He Hammers Away At His Guitar, Thorogood Plays With Personality, His Enthusiasm For Making Noise Readily Apparent. No Matter How Hard The Destroyers Ride "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer," This Album Isn't About Groove And It's Certainly Not About Virtuosity -- It's About Bashing Out The Blues At A Punishing Volume, And Their Lack Of Subtlety Is Why This 1977 Debut Still Sounds Powerful 40 Years After Its Release.” Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG. more
