I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Rough Around The Edges, from Lone Star Mojo and it's a solid blues rocker. Opening with This Time, a romping rocker, Jo Splawn on Hammond on B3 and lead vocals gets things going with an aggressive bass line by Tim Maloney, Scotty Biggs and Mark Snyder on guitar and Barry Sloan on drums. Snyder knows how to coax the blues outta this rocker with a fiery rocker making this a solid opener. With a splash of R&B, Texas Drought is a real nice track with good radio melody. I really like Snyder's guitar approach on this one with plenty of poise and oomph. With a bit of southern swagger, Crazy About The Woman is another cool track with strong lead vocal by Splawn and nicely blended backing vocals. Biggs and Snyder trade guitar riffs adding a bit of bite for a real nice track. Another cool track is rocker, Fine and Nasty with a great interplay between the guitars and drums and a driving bass line. Snyder on slide guitar really adds some spice onto his fine vocals making for another of my favorites on the release. Wrapping the release is Toppish Groove with a really great rhythm. With a Dusty Hill feel on bass, and British rock style B3 solo this track is solid and Snyder's guitar solo under his own vocals makes for a strong closer.
