Marcia Ball - “Peace, Love, and BBQ”Marcia Ball - “Peace, Love, and BBQ”

Marcia Ball Lead Vocals and outstanding Piano backed by Don Bennett on Bass, Corey Keller on Drums, Mike Keller on Electric Guitar, Thad Scott on Saxophones, Ian McLagan on The B3, and a host of rightous musicians and backup vocalists: Dr. John (on "I'll Never Be Free"), Terrance Simien, and another blues queen, Tracy Nelson. Throw in rambunctious horn arrangements, pedal steel when you need it, accordion obviously, and you have a bluesy Cajun-like mix. Check the liner notes for the details on these fine people. An Austin Texas recorded, mastered, and produced effort, a great Alligator Release.

1 – Party Town – A hint of Zydico in this rhythm
2 – Peace, Love, and BBQ – full solid R & B cut fun title cut good beat
3 – Miracle In Knoxville – Haunting and captivating arrangement
4 – Watermelon On Time – Cool New Orleans sound
5 – Down In The Neighborhood – smooth horn pops and backup on this groove
6 – Where Do You Go – down home Gospell influence in this cut
7 – My Heart And Soul – an homage to the roots of R & R blended to R & B
8 – I’ll Never Be Free – great ballad of the piano and bass with the Dr
9 – Married Life – another roots of the bayou cut. Happy and upbeat
10 – Falling Back In Love With You – Gospel piano intro for a cool ballad
11 – Right Back In It – terrific boogie beat cut
12 – Ride It Out – great slow story song from the delta
13 – I Wish You Well – wistful slow ballad of lost love

I must admit to being an old Marcia Ball fan. Here’s her first studio release in five years, represents Marcia Ball's versatility as well as anything she has ever released.

Later gator.
