Keep Your Powder Dry.jpg

With any number of echoes from the quality end of the past forty-something years. I heard a fair bit of Pete Townsend and Ronnie Lane in the opening Tear 'em On Down, which may be the result of recent exposure to Rough Mix but it continues throughout, while the EP concludes with a reading of the Jerry Garcia Deal.  One to listen to with a fellow music freak and a decent glass of red while you do a bit of I'm getting a hint of with the wine and the music. Derivative, perhaps, but it sounds like they're operating from some pretty classy influences.
