Reviews Dusty Rhodes and The River Band First You Live

Dusty Rhodes and The River Band

First You Live

With an Americana backbone, Dusty Rhodes and The River Band play a type of rock similar to CCR, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and other sixties acts that incorporated a strong folk/country influence into their sound without being gimmicky. Can’t place those names? Then imagine Flogging Molly less punk, more rock n’ roll, less Irish, earlier 20th century American. Imagine Murder By Death without the macabre subject matter. The vocals have a whiny, early nineties “alternative” sound to them. Sort of like people trying to sound like Axl Rose but failing miserably. A strong disc nonetheless and worth checking out if you’re a fan of folk, zydeco, early country, bluegrass and sounds of nature.
