Black Beauty Stranger (EastWest Records America 1994)

   Exactly, not really into kinds of Glam-Rock and Heavy Folk Metal type as Heart sisters or Joan Jett’s Blackhearts but this Memphis, TN group of mixed members bring their own original hometown roots paid to the love on Blues and Soul of the 60’s as clear revolving door kicking out the sounds from The Mother Station means good business today but not at their presence once in the early nineties where those “thicker music” didn’t meet the demands of how the generations wanted to hear more and more distortion or buzzing sounds of experiments like the Seattle sounds troops did pretty well to change the world’s Rock music interest poles to Alternative.
