Take a voyage to "Blues Island," and you're in for a stormy ride. But in this case, that's mostly a good thing. Supplying straight-forward, gravel-rough Chicago blues with a bite, as the name implies, The Chicago Kingsnakes put a good spin on their original blues tunes. Though the group needs some polishing, there's enough gems on this CD to make it shine. James Anderson, guitar and lead vocals, Ron Berry bass and vocals, and Tim Mazzoni, drums, all are talented musicians, and it shows. Anderson's fretboard sizzles and wails, especially on "Mr. Telecaster," the opening track. Other standouts on this CD include "Black T Bird," an uptempo Motownish tune that pays tribute to man's best friends - his guitar, dog and vehicle; the title track, which is another great showcase for Anderson's guitar playing; and "All Pain No Gain," an unusual look at one man's persistent, yet vain, attempts to garner a date with a very unwilling woman. Though a few tracks - such as "Abandoned In Hammond," - lack bite, overall the group's got a solid sound and the skills needed to slither on up the ladder of success.
