I Am the Road

by The 1969s

These foot-stomping jams are rooted in the delta blues and focused on having a good time. This music throws everything to the wind as if the juke joint is on fire and all you have is half a bottle of whiskey and wink from that crazy girl in the corner.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
GDGDBD. Affectionately referred to as "Open G" by blues musicians all over the world. This defines the tuning of a six string guitar to sound a "G" chord when strummed openly. This tuning as well as "Open D" are the foundation for some of the greatest blues songs ever played by the likes of Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf and R.L. Burnside. These tunings make it easy for someone to play a riff or a song, yet really hard to master and sound distinctive. This has been accomplished by The 1969s.

The 1969s take the "Open G" tuning and add gasoline to stoke the good-time fire. This Dallas, TX band, uses old school delta blues riffs with a foot-stomping grooves and a screaming harmonica to create a fresh music form.This sound throws everything to the wind as if the juke joint is on fire and all you have is half a bottle of whiskey and a wink from the crazy girl in the corner.

Remember that painting in the opening credits of the 70's sitcom Good Times? Yeah, that one. Now your there. When you listen, close your eyes and picture that painting and you are there except for the bad party small in the room.
