Trials And Tribulations by Saint Luke’s Drifters

Reviewed by Harry Kaplan

I was turned on to these guys by my good buddy Mike from Cowboy’s Juke Joint. I liked them a lot and now it is time for a review. Pure outlaw country mixed with a healthy dose of rock n roll. These boys from Tennessee love loud guitars and harmonica and it shows. And boy does it sound good. The first track is a barn burner right out of the gate with Let Me Down. Harmonica? Check. Loud raucous guitars? Check. I am sold. It does not let up either on the second track, If A Frog Had Wings is a rockabilly number right out of Jerry Lee Lewis’ playbook. It makes you wanna get up and dance and maybe spill a little beer. Another jaw droppingly good release from 2016. It is shaping up to be a true banner year in music. This is a can’t miss. I know I write that a lot, but this time I really mean it. Judge for yourself here.
