San Antonio Ballbuster [Drive]

by: Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown

Considering how sub-par the sound quality is on this disc (it's a CD reproduction of an old Red Lightnin' bootleg), it wouldn't rate a recommendation if the material therein were otherwise available. But many of these Peacock masters aren't obtainable anywhere else -- the stunning 1953 instrumental "Boogie Uproar," and storming rockers "Win with Me Baby, " "You Got Money, " and "Just Got Lucky, " and the after-hours hit "I've Been Mistreated, " for starters. So until something better comes along... ~ Bill Dahl
