ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Barely Legal Blues Band formed in 2005 as an original blues-rock band from Massachusetts. In 2007, the name was changed to Barely Legal (a.k.a. The Barely Legal Band). Barely Legal quickly gained a huge following with the biker bar scene and won a dozen or so awards for their original music. As the lineup changed, the musical style evolved into a dual guitar assault hard rocking style but still with strong hints of the blues. Songs 1-4 are the later years of Barely Legal from the EP "Hot Rods, Hot chicks, and Cold Beer." Songs 5-10 are from the early Barely Legal Blues Band self titled EP. So if you like blues-rock, give Barely Legal a listen and you won't be disappointed.

Pulse Magazine Article, June 2008, By Matthew Erhartic:
Barely Legal
Band expands their sound.

The greatest blues bands have always had a sense of grit about them. It’s the same grit a blues player would find under his fingertips after an all-nighter singing his sorrow through melody and a six string. So it’s only fitting that Barely Legal nicked their name from a dirty magazine.

Although the band has garnered a dozen local awards for their blues based music, Barely Legal have traded in their Buddy Guy and BB King influences for Nikki Sixx and Rikki Rocket. While still dabbling in the blues, the band has brought 80s me-generation guitar rock into the mix. Their originals like “Whiteline Fever” and “Gypsy Queen” conjure up mental images of Aqua Net, denim jacket back patches and making out in the back of an Iroc. Like, bitchin’, man!

Despite the incorporation of Reagan Era attitude, the songs glisten with blazing blues licks and, more importantly, quality musicianship ~ elements that most music critics never cited in their reviews of a 80s hair band albums.

Bitter Records

Great band from Massachusetts
Take a little blues, a little hard rock, a little classic rock, and even a little punk rock and mix it all together and you have Barely Legal. These guys have been playing shows for over half a decade and they never get boring to see live. This release for 2012 is comprised of 2 eras of the band. The first four songs are usually considered their better and more modern hard rock and blues material and I fully agree with that. Songs five through ten are their older songs from the original lineup when they went by the name Barely Legal Blues Band. These songs are also very well written but are more on the classic rock blues side. There isn't a bad song on this release so give them all a listen and catch Barely Legal at a show soon. You will not be disappointed.
