CD Review: Blackfoot Gypsies Are Ready To Rise "To The Top" With New Album

From Nashville, comes the classic sounding, roots rockers Blackfoot Gypsies with their latest release "To The Top." It will be released on April 14th through Plowboy Records. For those that may not have heard of them, their sound has been compared to seventies-style Rolling Stones and The Faces. They have recently toured along side other great live acts like Alabama Shakes and Drivn' N' Cryin.

Their new 15-song release kicks off with the raw, guitar-drivin' energy of "I'm So Blue" as they bring in that classic Muddy Waters blues sound and inject it with a shot of adrenaline. The band gets funky with the explosive classic rock of "Everybody's Watching," then revisit the early days of rock 'n' roll with the Beach Boys-like harmonies of "Promise To Keep." The Blackfoot Gypsies go all out country on "Potatoes And Whisky," then travel south for the jazz tones of "Back To New Orleans." They play loose on "Velvet Low Down Blues," before bringing back the energy with the The Stooges punk-like groove on "I Wanna Be Famous." The album wraps up with the slow stomp of "I've Got The Blues," the guitar-boogie shuffle of "Gypsy Queen" and the nostalgic-fuzz of "Why Should I Try."

The Blackfoot Gypsies have just kicked off their U.S. tour, which runs into May. For a complete list of shows and to find out more about their new album "To The Top," please visit blackfootgypsies.com.
