On their third and newest CD, “Get On the Horse,” The Delta Generators expand their horizons without sacrificing what they do best, which is blues. With their usual airtight sound and well thought out arrangements, this CD cements their reputation as one of the finest bands to ever come out of Central Massachusetts.
The Delta Generators formed in 2008, releasing their debut CD, “Devil In the Rhythm,” in November of that year and immediately set about proving that they were for real. Their career has been on an uphill climb ever since, having won numerous awards and shared the stage with many major artists.
That first recording is classic blues from beginning to end, leaving no doubt what the band stood for. By the time of their second release in 2010, “Hard River to Row,” the songwriting showed a real growth and sophistication, deepening their vision of a hard rockin’ sound based on the early Delta blues masters. A couple of tracks even hinted at country, and there were also touches of the Stax soul sound. Basically, they just started pushing the envelope. On this new CD, they have pushed considerably further.
“Whole Lotta Whiskey,” the opening track, begins with a slide riff from guitarist Charlie O’Neal, which confounds the listener rhythmically, only for a moment. The other band members, bassist Rick O’Neal and drummer Jeff Armstrong, immediately lock in the rhythm of this heavily syncopated tune. Singer extraordinaire Craig Rawding joins in and the romp is on. The title track follows, and there is nothing vague about this straight-ahead rocker, with its irresistible “nah nah nah nah” refrain.
Things suddenly start shifting around beginning with track three, “It’s Been Hard,” a mournful, sweet ballad featuring singer Keri Anderson in a guest spot, supplying a gorgeous harmony to Rawding’s heartfelt vocal. “Hot Tickets!” comes next, suddenly thrusting the listener into heavy funk nirvana, with a ferocious whiplash slide guitar riff from O'Neal. Just as suddenly, the next tune brings out the Led Zeppelin in them. One of the finest cuts on the CD, “Spider Bite” is picture perfect, and will probably be a highlight at live shows.
“Night of the Johnstown Flood,” a dark, slow blues features an extremely haunting vocal from Rawding and a beautiful melodic solo from O’Neal. The song also clearly demonstrates Rawding’s lyric writing, which should not go unnoticed.
You could call this the end of section one. Section two, where the band really shifts away from their trademark sound, is frankly not quite as strong, but there are some moments of interest. “Against the Cold,” featuring a plucky banjo riff, is a real fine tune, but seems a little out of place. Two more songs continue the trend of "what’s next?" as the band ventures into early '60s-style pop with “Rose For Rosa Lee,” while “Bulldog Sick of Rain” veers towards a style not unlike Creedence Clearwater Revival.
During this stretch of tunes, you can sense that the band wants to play in some other styles that they love. And they do it all very well. Maybe there is a bit of a problem in the song sequence. Too many leaps of faith for the listener, I guess. A prime example of this is the next tune, a deep south, cranky, drunken style dirge in three-quarter time, “Home of the Rustling Chain.” It’s exactly the kind of tune you like hearing them pull off, but after the previous four tunes, it doesn’t seem as strong as it should.
The final three tunes start with the CD’s only clunker, “Diablo Rock,” which should have been left on the cutting floor. This leaves the final two songs, both gems. “Blood Sugar Baby,” sung in falsetto by Rawding, is a very cool soul romp, featuring a gorgeous solo from Charlie. The record ends with a slow blues, “The More I Find Out (The Less I Want To Know).” Beautifully played and sang, it is the perfect ending to a mostly great record from a truly great band.(Jim Perry)
