Rezension

CD mit Live-Material, das 1987 bei der “Hard Times In The Age Of Plenty”-Tour mitgeschnitten wurde. Das Konzert enthielt alle Stücke der Hard Times-Platte und zwei weitere Tracks. Über einem soliden Drums-Bass-Orgel-Fundament spielt Omar seine tolle Swamp-Blues-Gitarre und presst die Texte mit einer Reißwolf-Stimme raus, als würde er sich die Stimmbänder jeden Morgen mit Schmiergelpapier abreibt.

Review

“The music of Omar & the Howlers is the tougher, bluesier first cousin to John Fogertyþs swamp-colored rock - music that always sounds best live. Live at the Opera House finds the Howlers in top form in 1987 (the outside of the J-card says 1997, though itþs most definitely þ87), pumping out 11 scorchers. Ten of those are penned or co-penned by Dykes himself, whose very song titles say it all: "Mississippi Hoodoo Man," "Hard Times in the Land of Plenty," "Big Legs," and "Dancing in the Canebrake." As menacing and threatening as any of the dark nights or hard roads he travels in blues country, Dykesþ growly baritone propels the Howlersþ music from one juke joint to another ("Donþt You Know," "Lee Anne"), while "Rock & Roll Ball" turns into revival-tent call-and-response, all in the name of rock & roll. Thirteen years after its original recording, the no-frills, stripped-down sound of Omar & the Howlers remains true to its roots and doesnþt compromise substance for style.” (Austin Chronicle)
