CD Reviews

Real Rock AND Roll from Austin, TX

"My first brush with the LeRois was when I picked up their "Forget About The Danger..." EP, which blew me away back in '84. I then immediately searched out Check This Action, which had been released the previous year on the local Jungle Records label. Rounder records subsequently released the 13-song collection on CD in 1994, and I have both versions...This is a great rock & roll record, featuring some excellent guitar and vocal work by both Steve Doerr and Don Leady (who later went on to form the Tail Gators, a wonderful swamp-rock outfit)..."Are You With Me Baby (Say Yeah)," "Chicken and Honey," "Steady With Betty, "Rockin' Daddy" and "Eternally Blue" are all endlessly listenable (although I prefer the EP version of "Eternally"); and Leady apparently enjoyed doing "Til It's Too Late" on this album so much that he later recorded it with the Tail Gators as well (and why not?--it's a great song!). I once saw the LeRois and the Blasters in concert together; though in all honesty the Blasters may be the best live outfit there is, the Brothers weren't far behind. Highly recommended."

"Austin TX- 1982-83. The Stray Cats bring a kinda rockabilly to the national airwaves. But for the reefer chuggin, beer swillin roadhouse sound, Austin turned to the Le Roi brothers. Rythm on a Les Paul Jr, lead on a Tele, these cats weren't no posers, man they threw it through the wall. Drummers, listen up- Mike Buck is the King. Glorious 4 piece music. Bob Dylan, ask Charlie Sexton about these guys...."
