The Iron City Soul ShakersShake Me Up, Judy!
In nine steel-fisted tracks, the Iron City Soul Shakers hammer their ZZ Top-by-way-of-Memphis sound that frames Kristi Johnston's soulful strut with Turner-esque panache. Santana/Journey vet Gregg Rolie brings his keyboards and voice in for a killer duet on the closest thing to a regional classic in years, Bill Carter's "The Richest One," but "Venko Tuned" positively rips. More, please.
