Rosco Levee is only twenty eight but listen to this album with his band Southern Slide and you’d think he has been around much longer. What’s more amazing is that he is British yet the album sounds like a real southern rock and country album that someone like Devon Allman would come up with.
Plenty to enjoy on here from the foot stompin’ opener ‘Goldrush’, Rosco shows off his slide playing on this one. Then there is ‘Never Stops’ where the music builds up like a train gaining steam which is good as the lyric involves a train! ‘Seven Seas Of My Name’ is a jaunty number and could be the Waterboys – Rosco sounds a lot like Mike Scott on this song. For a change of pace and style ‘I Got Soul’ does what it says on the tin, whilst ‘Old Bessie’ taps again into a southern country rock sound.
Strong songs and playing make for an album suitable for your collection if southern rock, blues and a little soul is your thing. If he’s this talented at twenty eight imagine what he will be like when he has a few more years and experiences under his belt.
