Running For Covers
 
Running For Covers Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $15.00
Artist: The Doughboys
 
 
Quantity:
 

Produced by Kurt Reil (of The Grip Weeds who also contributes vocals and percussion throughout) The Doughboys’ sixth studio album, “Running For Covers”, contains 13 tracks from the band whose career spans pretty much all the decades rock’n’roll has been in existence. They dig deep to find lesser-known gems of luminaries like the Kinks, The Band, The Stones, Herman’s Hermits and the Fab Four. Then they venture further to unearth outside-genre nuggets from the likes of Lambert Hendricks & Ross, Mose Allison and Neil Diamond, stamping all the tracks with their trademark hoppin’ grooves and riffs galore. Hey, they’re even covering themselves – infusing new renditions of the A-sides of their two 1967 singles for Bell Records with the benefit of their collective years of musical experience and wisdom.  The 13 well-chosen covers that constitute the Doughboys' new release make a case for pleading with the band to fashion an all-fave-classic-songs-we-didn't-write show for fans. For now, though, this knowing selection of covers will do quite nicely. The group gives each classic nugget their all and then some, infusing them with garage-rock fury or pure pop finesse, depending on the song.  ‘Running for Covers’ stands out of the ever-growing pack of covers albums by not simply choosing from the well of usual suspects; mixed in with the familiar (Neil Diamond's ‘Solitary Man’ and David Essex's ‘Rock On,’ for example) are more obscure tracks from the Kinks, Mose Allison, and the Four Seasons, among others, that might not come to mind, even in a pinch.  The Four Seasons' ‘Everybody Knows My Name,’ from 1966 is an inspired choice, a lovely, catchy pop song that is very different from the other fare on the record.  Another track, Herman's Hermits' ‘My Reservation's Been Confirmed’ from 1966 is another straight-ahead, catchy pop song, also of the I-probably-wouldn't-have-thought-of-that variety.  Other tasty highlights include a searing, four-on-the-floor take on Question Mark and the Mysterians' ‘96 Tears,’ and a powerful, rocking, crunchy guitar-ized version of the Band's ‘The Shape I'm In,’ which turns the original recording on its collective ears.  Two of the songs are re-recorded a-sides of the group's two Bell Records singles from the 60’s (‘Rhoda Mendelbaum’ and the aforementioned Four Seasons track, ‘Everybody Knows My Name’). They are jewels contained within this album of interpretation that shine from start to finish.” – Alan Haber/PurePopRadio  GREAT!!
