CD Reviews

Solid Debut
Martikus | Central Coast of Ca. | 07/24/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Mother Hip's, emerged from Chico, Ca during a quasi-hippie revival that swept the area (and many other parts of the country) in the early nineties. Their 1992 debut 'Back to the Grotto' is arguably their best effort, using blues, folk, country, hard rock, and a piece of the hippie mindset they were surrounded by. The album successfully combines a 60's vibe, with a slightly more modern sound.
As with most debut's, 'Grotto' is rough around the edges, but really adds to the charm. Standout tracks are 'Turtle Bones', 'Precious Opal' and the title track.
This album has grown on me over the years and I was fortunate enough to see this band in the early-early days, and I was blown away. One of the best bar bands to emerge from the 90's.
