Blackberry Smoke - The Whippoorwill

BBS The Whippoorwill Review

Let’s get down to some business. I am honored to be reviewing this album (yes I called it an album). Should you wear headphones while you drive, because this BBS creation is one that I would risk it for. The Whippoorwill takes us on a trip from the young Georgia Pines and more than one party out in them whether private or not. To an introspective journey of life through the eyes of the writers who lived it.

BBS The Whippoorwill Review

Let’s get down to some business. I am honored to be reviewing this album (yes I called it an album). Should you wear headphones while you drive, because this BBS creation is one that I would risk it for. The Whippoorwill takes us on a trip from the young Georgia Pines and more than one party out in them whether private or not. To an introspective journey of life through the eyes of the writers who lived it.

The music not only shares family, friends and love found and lost, it even goes out to the edge of town where the band found themselves being that “Sleeping Dog” you don’t ever want to mess with. This album moves nicely from initial heavier guitar, bass and drum tracks to a smooth pickin “Everybody Knows She’s Mine” to the grown up title track “The Whippoorwill”, which and forgive me I think was written by Charlie about his grandmother. Listening to the songs I feel like I did get taken to church a bit and “Shook Hands with the Holy Ghost” only to be snapped back to the reality of a humbling song like “Up the Road”.

An excellent production on everyone’s part, I will highly recommend it to all. Congratulations to the band and to Southern Ground Recording Group for a job well done! There “Ain’t Much Left of Me” right now so I will see you all soon!
