For locals having made their rep as a power trio dubbed "black and blues," CCB's nailed it on yet another self-titled, ZZ Top-meets-Soundgarden disc. Track upon track of low-down blues kick whip-smart guitar and an uncompromising backbeat ("Road Behind Me") that includes a bona fide treasure in singer/guitarist Doug Strahan's "Put It Down."
