pictures playing through my mind as I listen to the refreshing, earthy,
panting sound of Rhythm oil. I believe that Michael Messer + Terry clarke
didn't do a lot of vocal overdubbing. What I hear is the real thing. Bare-bones
blues gut-bucket rural rock. This record carried me away to a long
down a delta dirt road to a land of my musical good-old-daysing.
ps. don't squeeze the trigger, if you can't stand the recoil
