CD Reviews

Hickin' and clickin'
Roger Gordon | Orange County, CA USA | 10/20/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I met Dan in a bar in Philadelphia in '71, it was just before his show. He seemed quiet and pensive. The show began and he transformed the place with his palm tree backdrops and the Lickettes. Their music style was unique even back then, melding 40's swing with country, rock and humor. 30 years later I listen to the songs, a smile spreads across my face and my feet start bopping. As musicians they're really tight. The music is, so from the heart, honest. Attitude is a little Steve Martin with a lot of soul. Treat your self to this album it will definately lift you!"
A fun, fun CD!

"This CD is a mixture of studio tracks from the earlier "Strikin it Rich" album and several live tracks. Lots of variety, difficult to categorize but worth the listen if you are into a jazz, country, rock, folk, blues thing - with a twist. The violin solo on the "I Scare Myself" track would shut down both the devil and that kid from Georgia! This CD kept me awake on a long, late night drive down I94 and for that, I am grateful. It may be the most fun to listen to CD in my collection."
There has never been another group like these guys.

"The spring I graduated from high school, my boyfriend and I saw these guys open for Elton John of all people. We couldn't believe our ears. They were the hippest, tightest, swinging-est band we'd ever heard. In fact, most of the audience didn't know what to make of them, but I found a lifelong favorite. Give this disk a listen."
