Synopsis

Amazon.com
The Destroyers have been called a glorified bar band, yet they deserve credit for introducing '80s mainstreamers to early rockers such as Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley. They also reintroduced classic blues forms to rock radio, only in a little more electrified form. Hell, they even electrified Hank Williams's "Move It On Over." The aforementioned artists are all represented on this compilation, which in many ways also displays how much Thorogood's songs owe to the originals. The Thorogood-penned title cut, for instance, owes an unmistakable debt to Bo Diddley (who appeared in the video). And when Thorogood sandwiches John Lee Hooker's "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer" between his own "I Drink Alone" and "If You Don't Stop Drinkin'," it tough to miss the connection. If you buy only one Thorogood album, this should be it. --Bill Holdship

CD Reviews

Classic George, as always.
09/13/1998
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This album features George's "big hit," Bad to the Bone, reason alone for getting it. Compared to his other albums, this has more slow numbers than usual. But songs like the opening track, Back To Wentzville, are so rockin' that they may inspire you to play the guitar, like it did for me. This really shows how George can pick up the pace or slow it down smoothly, like few can."
Classic Thorogood

"BAD TO THE BONE is classic George Thorogood and his band the Destroyers. On this album we have 10 slabs of great blues-rock music that all music fans will enjoy. George helped to bring alot of the classic blues masters into the mainstream back in the 80's and early 90's when he was in his prime. On this album we have his classic title track that is enough of a reason to buy this album, but I think that the other songs are great also. BACK TO WENTZVILLE, NOBODY BUT ME, MISS LUANN, NO PARTICULAR PLACE TO GO are just furious rockin tunes that will get you moveing in no time. BLUE HIGHWAY, IT'S A SIN, AS THE YEARS GO PASSING BY are slower blues tempo songs that are pulled off very well here. George is still rockin 20 years after this release and hopefully we will still be getting some great music from him in the years to come"

"Bad to the Bone put George on the map of songwriters and will probably be his signature song!This is a showcase release that is a change of pace and an enjoyable listen!"
