CD Review: The Greenhornes – East Grand Blues EP

The Greenhornes is a classic rock fan’s modern delight. What was supposed to be a full length album, East Grand Blues was cut short due to the album’s producer Brendan Benson and his commitments to his own album The Alternative To Love. So with only five songs, The Greenhornes decided to just release what was finished and what comes out is an amazing EP. There is a tremendous influence from classic 60s and 70s rock bands like the Beatles and the Byrds (“I’m Going Away”), the Doors and a hint of Billy Idol (“Shelter Of Your Arms”), the Zombies (“At Night”) and Steppenwolf (“Pattern Skies”) on the band. You probably won’t find a better contemporary rock song than “Shelter Of Your Arms.” With such great songs and such a great sound, one can only wonder what East Grand Blues could have been.
