ShannonBel Airs :: Got Love
-- by Shannon --

Bel AIrs - Got LoveI can't tell you how long I have been waiting for the Bel Airs new album to come out. They are indeed one of my absolute favorite bands in and around the St. Louis area. Got Love is technically the group's fourth album release. The first was Need Me A Car (1984), then Dangerous Curves (1991), next came Hoodoo Party (1999) and now the current release. I dig the album to the fullest though you must go see this band live and in person!! Nothing beats it! Below is a brief description of the new disc:

1. I Got Love If You Want It - like this opener; way cool sound of the shakers in the background

2. The Blues Is Walkin' - intriguing story of the blues with names of Robert Johnson & Big Mama Thornton to make this melody interesting

3. What Kind Of Fool (Do You Think I Am) - nice piece of music that reminds me of an Eddie & the Cruisers song

4. Just You and I - you just gotta dance to this boogie

5. Wild About You Baby - my fav on the album; I admire the slide playing along with the vocal harmonizing

6. Poor Man Rich Man - nice guitar riff & more fabulous harmonizing

7. Going To The River - hand clappin' beat that is my second favorite on the disc; has a country blues sound

8. Those Lonely, Lonely Nights - one of my all time favs; nice slow dance tune

9. Hi Line-horns - Magic Sam classic guitar riff sounds

10. How Are You Fixed For Love - slow bluesy love tune

11. Succotash - jazzy instrumental
