"Soledad Brothers" (CD)
Digging back into my college music days we find the Soledad Brothers. Hello, friends.
Released in 2000, this debut album by the Toledo, OH trio was produced by Jack White. It helped bring the revival of garage blues-rock that the Greenhornes, the Kinks, the Vines and the White Stripes participated in.
While they never enjoyed huge success, the Brothers are often quoted as being influential to the likes of Jack White for their raw, unpolished bluesy touch that sounded a great deal like a tent revival service drenched in guitar overdrive.
I played regularly in Toledo during the time this band was active. It was fun to see a community support their hometown heroes.
