Well, I guess by now it's no longer a secret that I think that George Hatcher is one of the greatest unsung heroes of Southern Rock. C'mon you people, download all you can by George Hatcher. Then start mailing labels, such as Wounded Bird, about how wonderful this world would be if all Hatcher albums would be released on CD. Great as some LP rips may be, I'll gladly pay for a genuine digital replacement of my old albums. And then the next thing, of course, would be to get George out of his retirement. Obviously, we first need to know his current whereabouts (North Carolina, anyone?). And then convince him to start singing again. We can do it, if we put our minds to it. Yes, we can!
Enough politics. This is the first George Hatcher Band release. Based in the UK and recording for United Artists. George always had a great Feat-esque groove to his brand of Southern Boogie. And the arrangements are really well worked out. And just when you think it's straight ahead rock, there's a twist and a bend. It's all highly original, though not at first glance. With George Hatcher, you gotta take a chance. And let it grow. Cause it will grow on you. You have my word.
