Synopsis

Album Description
'Orange', the Blues Explosion open with a nod to a plush, Stax feel for the blues with the aid of a full string section. Other unusual touches include the use of scratching and a guest appearance by media sensation and blues aficionado Beck. Despite these unconventional elements, the disc is solidly grounded in the blues and can definitely be seen as the Blues Explosion's statement about the blues today. Digipak. 1994 Matador Records.

CD Reviews

It's possible to go overboard
Steve Forstneger | Chicago, IL United States | 05/14/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"It seems like people often completely overrate JSBX or hate them based on a preceived lack of authenticity, and then there's fans who don't accept anything after Extra Width. Well, Orange is a great party album, and sometimes the blues is about partying (and anyone who thinks the blues can only be downtrodden stuff by downtrodden black dudes is perpetrating racism). Bellbottoms, Full Grown, Sweat, Flavor, Dissect, Blues X Man - if you're not in the mood to like this you won't. The rest of us will just rub it in your face that we know how to have fun."
