Tim Brooks & The Alien Sharecroppers - Live At The Douglas Theatre (2002)

Thanks to Traink, I offer you this little show by Tim Brooks & The Alien Sharecroppers. Important to note is that this was originally offered as a lossless show. Therefore I urge you not to convert this to wav or flac and trade as lossless. If you need that, just holler!
Back to the music. Tim Brooks is amazing and a bit of an anachronism. He sounds so much like heyday 70's Southern Rock, it's like a time warp. It's classic, old school Southern Rock. His style was already very reminiscent to The Allman Brothers Band, on this show even more so. But maybe that has something to do with the fact that it's an Allman Brothers set he's playing. And it's not a dodgy stab at giving it a go. No, this is the real thing. It's raw, has gravelly vocals, great playing and touches the true spirit of Southern Rock. Hell yeah! (got me carried away...)
Apparently, Tim Brooks is out there playing again. He operates from around Macon, Georgia. Check Tim's MySpace page and say hi. Here's hopin' for a new studio album. If this is the first music of Tim Brooks you're about to grab, maybe you should try the studio album by The Brothers Brooks. That's the best way to get acquainted with the excellent music he's made. If, however, you're already familiar with the man, or an Allman Brothers fan, get this now.

I'm not in favor of converting lossless to mp3. And I very much respect the desire to preserve music in the best possible quality, and keep it that way for trade. But in the case of Tim Brooks I felt that, in the lossless community alone, too few people would learn about Tim and enjoy his music. Maybe this will help to get him playing beyond Georgia again. I want to see him back in Europe! Now don't go messing with these files in lossless communities...
