Lawrence Lander & the Best Friends Money Can BuyCigarette Stars
A dollar doesn't go as far as it used to, but Lander & Friends ply a tried and true Southern-rock and college-jam tradition. Slower numbers ("Cigarette Stars," "45/87") show some songwriting promise, while "Friends Like These" culls the Black Crowes, and "The Senator's Son" breaks up Creedence's revival with a truckload of Skynyrd. All "Free Bird" requests granted.
