The Beat Daddy’s – Five Moons
When this CD came the following
note was attached “You have the opportunity
to discover one of America’s great blues bands,
The Beat Daddys. Just put the CD we recently sent
you (Five Moons) in your CD player and you will
soon be hearing some of the finest new blues-rock
currently in the marketplace today.” Bold
statements, but I appreciate their go-get-it-ness
and gave it a spin.
Where Is She is a classic blues-rocker
with lead guitarist Britt Meacham showing off the
electric slide playing. Legend has is that Britt
learned from Duane Allman when Britt was a youngster
hanging around the legendary Muscle Shoals Sound
Studios. Larry Grisham sings Pale White Circle
with a Stevie Ray Vaughn-like soul to it. Bad
Streak has an acoustic Bob Seger flair to it.
Where you might hear some Lynyrd Skynyrd influence
is on the acoustic-building-to-electric song, Lonely
and peace til next time.

Where Is She
The Beat Daddys wrote and performed for all 12 songs
on this CD, which is their fifth. The songs were
pretty good, good groove, great guitar playing.
Barring a couple of songs with lyrics that were
borderline weird to bad, these guys sounded pretty
good. I’d listen to it again.
