Synopsis

Amazon.com
This Atlanta-based quartet oozes enthusiasm and energy in serving up an infectious blend of rockabilly and swing. In the process, the Cigar Store Indians prove that melody and aggression can happily coexist. While the rhythm section roars and rumbles, Ben Friedman earnestly delivers his vocals over Jim Lavender's formidable electric twang and tinges of steel guitar, piano, and horns. The music ranges from cactus-and-armadillo-skull dirges to unassuming ballads to high-octane romps. Above all, the Indians make time-tested musical styles sound fresh and exciting; they're danceable and catchy without being shallow. --Marc Greilsamer

CD Reviews

El Baile De La Cobra
Bill Hayes | Richmond, Virginia USA | 10/02/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Wow!!!!! These guys are great. This is not a bunch of commercial junk, this is Rock-a-Billy at it's best. I have not played a CD over and over like this in years. I just don't get tired of these guys. In fact I just ordered The Cigar Store Indian's first CD and I understand that they have a new live release coming out soon (10-12-01 I think)and I plan on getting that one as well.
These guys put on one of the best, fun-filled shows that you will ever see and I strongly recomend that the next time these guys come to town that you check them out. They have fun and it shows, whether you see them live or listen to one of their recordings."
Excellent Rockabilly Album!

"You will want to see these guys live once you own the CD; when they come to your town, don't miss them. Each track is swingin' in its own way, and I have a tough time picking my favorite. Definitely worth checking out."
An incredible band

"About 10 years ago a friend and I went down to hilton head island to celebrate his 21st birthday. So as you can imagine...many bars were closed by us. Anyway, we stumbled into a hotel bar one night as we had heard, from the street mind you, an incredible sound coming from this place. When we walked in their was a barmaid, and one other customer in the place...practically empty. Except for this band on stage and playing away as if there was a full house. We sat down and ordered our drinks and listened to these fellas play ALL NIGHT! They were amazing! When they FINALLY put their instruments down we bought a round of drinks for them. We sat and talked about the plans for the big time. I told them if and when they put an album out I'd be first in line. But as you can guess...time slipped away and I lost track of these talented guys. But what a surprise! I've found them again AND they have two albums out!! So without even listening to the tracks...I've purchased both...so should you."
