The Allman Brothers phrase and the title of the EP, "Sometimes Called the Blues", is exactly what the EP is all about. "Sometimes Called the Blues" showcases the band's blues side that uses power, groove and soul to bring the music to an electrifying level. Raw-live feel is apparent throughout all the songs capturing that classic improvisational sound.
The heavy funk/blues sounds are shown on the group's original song "Misery" and the Jimi Hendrix cover "Izabella". "Goin' Down Slow" is a blues classic made famous by Howlin' Wolf. It shows the soul of the group as they dive into a slow twelve bar blues. The blues sounds of the late 1960's can be heard on "Hideaway/Rudemood" and "Southbound".
For blues fans this EP has a variety of blues sub-genres to enjoy and maybe it will make a blues fan out of you!
