Trouble Monkey

Swamp funk with a big horn section and soulful vocals. Don't even try to sit still. The rug will slip out under your feet. Good "New Orleans" style songwriting with kneedeep guitar.

Album Notes
In 1995 Lloyd Jones recorded a highly acclaimed album for the Audioquest label, entitled "Trouble Monkey". Live to two tracks! No overdubbing, no going back to fix anything.
Blues Revue named it, "Not only one of the best albums of 1995, it is one of the best albums of the 1990's, while Robert Cray called it "the best damn record I've heard in a long time!" Vintage Guitar Magazine said "Jones offers vocals that would make Sam and Dave smile and guitar work Steve Cropper would be proud of" and referred to his affecting vocals as "gritty as a dirt road and smooth as melting butter." Lloyds songwriting was starting to be noticed as well, with Joe Louis Walker and Gatemouth Brown covering two of his compositions.
Jones still plays a lot of these songs in his live show today.
