Blackie & the Rodeo Kings – South
“Baby point this engine south / I wanna ride ‘till we get our fill.” opens the title track of Blackie and the Rodeo Kings’ newest release South. As a follow up to the band’s much praised and extensively toured Kings and Queens album, it’s tempting to see this as a sign of the band’s goals: taking this “Canadian” supergroup to bigger places. Southwards, ho.
