Chris Wilson = The Rolling Stones + The Flamin Groovies + The Booze

Chris Wilson (The Flamin’ Groovies) released his solo project filled with ’60s-influenced rock n’ roll numbers that evoke memories of the Rolling Stones and The Beatles era. While this certainly lacks the grit of The Flamin’ Groovies, it more than impresses by playing out classic sounding melodies, much in the line of the greats of rock ‘n’ roll.

The opening track, “All the Action,” bursts out with an upbeat rocking ballad, sung with wailing, western-styled vocals. “She Satisfies” follows with a heavy bass line and sick guitar riffs that no doubt take influence from Keith Richards. This is also especially heard in the numbers “Down in the Wire” and “Gamblin’ Man.” This is a great listen, definitely worth grabbing for any rockers out there. Now go enjoy. –Nick Kuzmack
