"Geraint Watkins & The Dominators"- THE WEEKEND MIX
I mentioned a few weeks ago just how much I was enjoying the new Geraint Watkins release "In A Bad Mood."
The longtime sideman of Nick Lowe has been making records since the seventies and his first, "Geraint Watkins & The Dominators" has yet to see its release on CD.
On his debut, which is here in its entirety, The Dominators run through a dozen or so rock and roll classics with a bit of a New Orleans and Cajun twist. (Watkins DOES play the accordion.) I'm thinking Nick Lowe meets Professor Longhair.
1. "Man Smart Woman Smarter"
2. "Casting My Spell"
3. "In The Night"
4. "Grow Too Old"
5. "Blue Moon of Kentucky"
6. "Gotta Find My Baby"
9. "Deep In The Heart of Texas"
10. "Don't You Just Know It"
11. "If Walls Could Talk"
12. "My Baby Left Me"
13. "Cakewalk Into Town"
