Resouled: Best of the Egrets 2
The Egrets, one of the great bands to come out of the hills and marshes of Marin County are back on their second "Best Of" collection, this time in a more soulful vein. They hadn't been heard from in years. Just why wasn't exactly clear (to paraphrase Buffalo Springfield). They did go on some side trips (see opposite). And, as it turned out, their huaraches wore out and they had to have them Resouled. Paraphrasing remarks at one of the other bird band's reunion concerts, the Egrets weren't gone; they just kept their day jobs. They did have an identity crisis: Could a mostly average white band really sound soulful? Did they have the Commitment to play that kind of music? Could they move on from rock and roll? (having already moved on from rockabilly...) Could the Power of ProTools keep them in the groove? This collection answers those questions with an emphatic "Yo"! Backed by the beat and vocal arrangements of second-generation Egrets, they turn in their most soulful, bluesy performances to date. Pull off your zapatos and enjoy...
