In the early '70s Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks toured extensively. However, they didn't last long, releasing their fourth and last album in 1973. It's of a piece with its predecessors (WHERE'S THE MONEY, STRIKING IT RICH and ORIGINAL RECORDINGS), all of which offer a spirited romp through old and forgotten musics.
The band's mix of Tin Pan Alley, vaudeville, cabaret, Western swing, jazz, and loopy pop was the perfect counterpoint to the era's psychedelic over-indulgences. They sported a pair of violins riffing around a core rhythm section. Hicks's deadpan vocals were supported by two female singers, who, more integral than mere backup singers, stepped regularly into the spotlight. Several of Hicks' songs that debuted here were subsequently to remain a part of his repertoire for decades to follow. The Hot Licks were a well-balanced and sympathetic ensemble who celebrated the style and grace of eras gone by.
