Jeffrey Novak | Henderson, TN United States | 01/11/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A true Memphis masterpiece that continues to get better with each listen. It was released in 93, but i believe that it was recorded some time around 1991, before Jon Spencer went on to form the Blues Explosion, Don Howland started the Bassholes, and Jeff Evans became the force behind 68' Comeback. By now, it has become common knowledge, that Memphis' outstanding garge rock scene would have never existed if the Gibson Bros hadn't migrated there in the early 90's. Memphis Sol Today is by comparison, the Gibson Bros. most commericially viable release, it's hardly as raw, as Big Pine Boogie, Dedicated Fool, or The Man Who Loved Couch Dancing, but just as enjoyable. For me the real winners on this album are Don Howland's classic "Barbara" and Jeff Evans own "Lil' Hand, Big Gun" While Jon Spencer's version of "Let's Work Together" is equally as entertaining, as this album keeps up the Gibson Bros. tradition of there albums containing mostly obscure covers. But the sad part is this is the only Gibson Bros. CD in print. All us Gibson Bros. fans have to fight over the original vinyl versions of there first 4 albums until Homestead Records decides to get off there lazy asses and give the Gibson Bros. catelog the re-issueing it strongly deserves. But don't be down, It's not to hard to find a CD copy of Memphis Sol Today which is a fine start for anyone wanting to jump on the bandwagon."
