Back Door Slam, one of my favorite new bands, has recently released a new EP consisting of 4 new songs and a video. The songs included on the EP are:
- Back Door Slam – The song by Robert Cray from which they got their name
- Riding with the King – by John Hiatt
- Been Down So Long – by The Doors
- Red House – The Jimi Hendrix classic
- It’ll All Come Around – Video
Anyone who has seen BDS play live over the past year or so has seen them play most of these songs in concert. I’m glad to finally have some ‘official’ recordings of these songs. The EP is available on iTunes.
BDS has also recently been selected as the opening act for the upcoming Kid Rock/Lynyrd Skynyrd arena tour. Guitarist Davy Knowles was also featured in the latest issue of Guitar Player magazine. I’m glad to see them getting recognized. They are one of the best new blues/rock bands I’ve heard in a long time. Prior to the arena tour, they are passing through town again, so I’m looking forward to seeing them again.
