An album of originals by Dave Alvin, accompanied by the expanded lineup that included Steve Berlin and Lee Allen on sax, this is prime-time vintage Blasters. Opening with the crowd-pleasing love song "Red Rose," moving through "Barefoot Rock" (no doubt inspired by Jimmy McCracklin's "Georgia Slop," later covered by Los Lobos), on to one of Alvin's finest hours of songwriting with "Long White Cadillac" (made famous by Dwight Yoakam), and winding down with "Boomtown," the Blasters are effective at retracing and reflecting the concerns of the common man and woman -- a celebration of Americana, careful never to wallow in nostalgia. ~ Denise Sullivan
