CD Review: Rosie Flores Returns With Her "Working Girl's Guitar"

Rockabilly artist Rosie Flores will be releasing her 11th album entitled “Working Girl’s Guitar” on October 16 through Bloodshot Records. This is the first album that Flores handled all the production and guitar performances. This album follows her involvement with fellow artist Janis Martin’s final album “The Blanco Sessions” in which Flores produced and help funded the release of.

The album starts off with the title-song that finds Rosie’s voice in fine form as she sounds as good as she has ever sounded before. Here guitar playing is also in top form as noticed on the country-rockabilly song “Little But I‘m Loud” and on the instrumental “Surf Demon #5.” Her sound on “Drugstore Rock and Roll” dates back to the days of malt shops and jukeboxes as it becomes very refreshing to hear in today’s music. The album finishes with a cover of the Elvis Presley #1 hit “Too Much” and a quiet, acoustic rendition of George Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.”

Rosie Flores will be hitting the road performing her new album beginning out on the west coast before making her way east in early November. She will be performing in Connecticut on November 11 at Café Nine. For a complete list of tour dates and information on the new album, please visit rosieflores.com.
