Tim Brooks & The Alien Sharecroppers - See Rock City (1999)

After breaking up the Brothers Brooks, Tim carried on without brother Gregg. The first recorded results can be heard on this 1999 release by Tim Brooks & The Alien Sharecroppers with "See Rock City". What a band name. But what great music yet again. Tim can play Southern Rock music like the 70's never went away. Like the 80's never even existed. Wow!
He's got a good replacement in the vocal department, although I do prefer brother Gregg. The music is great, though the follow-up to this album, "Back In The Game", would be even better, introducing yet another singer. Still, some very strong songs and fierce picking here. A couple of tunes here are re-recorded versions of songs originally included on The Brothers Brooks"" album. I added two bonus tracks, "Sweet Dreams" & "Jesse", which were from a Taxim Records blues compilation called 'Peach State Blues'. That compilation is already out of print and these two tracks are not available elsewhere. So, try shakin' this ol' tree..
