JASON & THE SCORCHERS: Thunder & fire
Veikko Peltonen | Finland | 09/30/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Powerful playing, good singing, great melodies. Maybe the best
record of the band I think. I'm listening it again and again."
Jason and the Scorchers, the most underrated band ever (alon
Ricahrd A. Salzer | Chesapeake, Virginia, USA | 12/29/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Thunder and Fire is not well liked by band members
Warner Hodges, still the guitar player for this
band and former two-time Bassist, (shades of TP
in CT!), Jeff Johnson. When J&TS played here in the
Virginia Beach area in '96 for the Clear and Impet-
uous Morning Tour, at the H2O club (which no longer
exists), I asked Warner and Jeff their opinion about
it. Understand that Jeff was out of the band by late
'87 - first temporarily replaced by JB, formerly of CT
then Canadian Andy York.

Warner's comment was: "It sounded like us COVERING
ourselves", what with THREE (3) lead guitarists. A&M
records (yes, they still did press some vinyl on this
release) tried to 'Amp Up The Scorchers', which is like
asking Cheap Trick and Webb Wilder to 'please turn it
up, guys...'

Jason's lyrics and country singing, in particular, are
better here on this underapreciated release than on any
other Scorchers 'record' [opps, showing my "roots" again].

The Scorchers were ALWAYS the real deal, since they did
not denigrate country (white peoples 'soul' music)
BUT PLAYED REAL COUNTRY TUNES as well as the best Rock
this side of Cheap Trick (when they had a real Bass play-
er)[i.e., IN THE '80'S). There are no bad songs here.

I know it (three lead guitarists) caused a temporary break-
up of these guys, but by the thinnest of margins, it PROB-
ABLY is their best LP. I recommend getting this, Siren,
All Is Forgiven, Webb's Hybrid Vigor and the four Cheap
Trick releases of the 1980's with Jon Brant on Bass, while
you still can! Aloha!"
