HoneyBoy Dupree & The Smokehouse Players
HoneyBoy Dupree & The Smokehouse Players – Anybody Seen My Baby?

Twelve songs, seven of which are originals, lead by bassplayer HoneyBoy. The well deserving title track starts off as a simmerin’ hot blues ditty, with a long smokin’ lead. The first song is the best on the CD, would’ve liked to have a whole CD like this. Keys and horns are added to second track – 300 lbs of Heavenly Joy, kind of reminded me of the Blues Brothers. Track 3, Full Moon On Main St., demonstrates HoneyBoy’s soulful vocals. Built for Comfort leans more towards jumpin’ swing with a killer harmonica solo. Howlin could easily be an Omar Dykes song, deep and raspy over twelve bars. First Morning Light could be a cross over to country or pop, either way I liked it. Coming Home is the slower gospel ballad on the CD. Big Legged Woman is knee tappin’, good time jamboree.
