Album Notes
At the classic LP length of 46 minutes, The 12th Street Blues takes the listener through an analog signal path and back out on the streets, in a journey that defines The Staxx Brothers experience. Breaking the rules by realizing the true range (and influence) of American Soul, The 12th Street Blues is paved with gold. ‘Slowdown’ and ‘Easy Rider’ are post rap suites, the rave up ‘Black Market’ rocks relentlessly, and the Hip Hop opera ‘Keep the Motor Runnin’/ ‘Toshin’ amble easily from New Orleans to Jamaica. As the album takes on another surprising turn towards the home stretch, the whiskey soaked ballad, ‘Back Home’ (recorded live) chases country back into the arms of Ray Charles. When the curtains finally close in full salute to Seattle’s greatest icon, on ‘JMH I & II’- The Staxx Brothers give it all up for Jimi Hendrix in 10 incendiary minutes.
