Dukes - Great Band - So So CD

"I owned Dukes on LP. The attractions were Miller Anderson (Keef Hartley) and Jimmy McCullough (Wings, Thunderclap Newman & One In A Million - the teen guitar sensation). I heard Heartbreaker on FM radio and rushed out to find the LP. If every LP needs a signature track, this is it. Unfortunately, the rest is a mixed bag of 70s musical influences. Perhaps the most disappointing part is that, with two dandy guitarists on board, no song really showcases all of this combined talent. Instead, pick up Bright City (Miller Anderson's nearly perfect solo effort)and Thunderclap Newman's only LP, now on CD with bonus tracks. Everyone knows the solo from Something in the Air but Jimmy knocks it out of the park with Wild Country and, back to Wings, who can forget Junior's Farm or Helen Wheels. The kid could rock!"
