Synopsis

Amazon.com
"Pay Before You Pump" is former NRBQ guitarist Al Anderson's third solo album, a country rock effort with an emphasis on the rock. When he remakes his song "Lonely Too Long," he allows distortion to creep into his guitar riff; by contrast, Anderson's version of "Without Your Love" is even more quiet and understated than Tippin's, but when Anderson sings, "Danced with the devil in a bottle of whiskey," there's a stark terror in his husky whisper. Music Row hitmaker Bob DiPiero cowrote two songs with Anderson and they're the most country-sounding tracks on "Pay Before You Pump." "Change Is Gonna Do Me Good" (a thinly disguised rewrite of Sam Cooke's "A Change Is Gonna Come") is an old-fashioned gospel hymn, while "Under the Hood" uses more automobile metaphors than you can count. --Geoffrey Himes

"Al Anderson is an unspoken music giant of Nashville. Like all ex rock & rollers he is laid up in Nashville still writing and playng good music. I got to see him on Delbert's Blues cruise and he is fantastic. A great guitarist, recently teamed up with Vince Gill on song and video. The album, excuse me CD, is great, part punk on the first cut, tongue in cheek humor, and all great music. Like John Hiatt and Bob Dylan, he just grows on you! If it were not for Al, a good part of Nashville's hat acts would be broke or back working construction. Keep it up Al!"
