Morgan Mike and The Crawl - Live In Dallas (CD)


This is the long awaited first live recording by Mike Morgan and The Crawl and follow-up to his debut release on Severn Records, Texas Man.” Recorded live in its entirety at Bootleggers in Dallas and again features the Dallas native as both guitarist and lead vocalist.

Although Mike Morgan’s influences include Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimmie Vaughan, Anson Funderburgh and Ronnie Earl, he has developed into an original guitar player with a sound and style all his own as he has continued to impress fans and critics for over a decade by releasing six highly regarded albums prior to ”Live In Dallas.”

From the gritty opening chords of the first track, the Morgan/McBee penned One of a Kind, it’s clear that this is a hard hitting, no-frills Texas blues show. As Mike showed us on his last release Texas Man, he is more than capable of tackling vocal and guitar duties, which he demonstrates with ease on this record. The Crawl deliver great house rockin’ versions of songs like late Texas blues man Frankie Lee Sims’ Frankie’s Blues and Don Robey’s Mother-In-Law-Blues. This recording offers great clarity without sacrificing the ambience of the nightclub setting. Cause I Love You, another Morgan/McBee tune, takes the energy level up a notch as Mike warms up on the fret board. When the band glides into Blues for Al & Peg (Morgan), Mike sets the stage on fire with his guitar drifting from smooth, articulate phrases to fierce leads as the song dips and swells. Nice slide work on Melvin London’s Twelve Year Old Boy adds a welcome flavor to the mix. The next couple of tunes, The Wino Song and Help Me Baby, spotlight the able vocals of Crawl members Rhandy Simmons and Chris Zales (respectively). The tight shuffling rhythm on the Jimmy Reed classic Shame, Shame, Shame brings this disc to a close with an upbeat danceable tempo. Live in Dallas brings the roadhouse to your living room. All you have to do is sit back and Crank it up! Crawl to the forefront of the national blues scene. This latest release, The Crawl’s second CD for Severn adds a new chapter to the their history and gives fans a chance to experience the band at it’s raw, and unbridled best.
