Lucero: 1372 Overton Park
Buy! - (Universal Republic)
This Memphis band continues to evolve on their latest album, mostly leaving behind the country influences of their earlier work for a fuller, classic rock-influenced sound that takes in Springsteen, the Replacements, the Stones and more. With production from Ted Hutt (who produced the last Gaslight Anthem album) and legendary Memphis session man Jim Spake (who worked with Al Green back in the day) providing some great horn arrangements, 1372 Overton Park is ultimately a celebration of rock ‘n’ roll. Lucero’s good friends The Hold Steady would no doubt approve. 9/23/2009 - Don Yates
