Free Download Of The Week: Eric Burdon And The Greenhornes

1 Comment 29 November 2012


Legendary blues frontman Eric Burdon has teamed up with Cincinnati garage band The Greenhornes for a 4 song EP out just in time for the holidays.  The collaboration came about when Producer/Songwriter/Raconteur Brendan Benson met with Burdon at South by Southwest and suggested that he consider recording with the Greenhornes in Nashville.  Burdon flew out the next week.  The effort was released on vinyl for Record Store Day Black Friday and will be released digitally on November 27th.  Learn more about the project here. At this time, we are no longer able to offer a free download of Eric Burdon & The Greenhornes’ “Out of My Mind.”

    a light return, vocally for Eric Burden.
    gone are the days of his deep, gyrating, big wail that tore down the ceiling paint, curled the wallpaper and shook your bones and brought the neighbours to your front door asking you to tunr it down.
    and your response was, “I DID.”
    sorry.
    maybe Eric was one of those guys that help usher in headphones.
    anyway.
    and i am glad he doesn’t try to shout it out here.
    over the years that has led me to such disappointment.
    this about a man full of feeling singin’ and communicatin’ within his still gifted limitations.
    and his slow drawl and half speak digs deep.
    he phrases and squeezes every word to give its poetry the right nuance.
    the tune has a nice hook and it as sticky as peanut butter on the roof of your mouth.
    more good news.
    this feels more like Spill the Wine in Mr. Burdens’ founding of War period.
    and the Greenhornes, who prove that are not their namesake, set a groove and atmosphere that cooks, slinks and slides around in the swampy dark of Eric’s tale.
    a great coupling, indeed.
    the “hole in my chevy” line made me roar with laughter.
    overall,
    a victorious return from a sorely missed, on going legend, who proves age is irrelevent and the blues is still a Burden, even in the digital age of 2012.

    4 out of 5 Berries for this one.
