Darrel Higham - Hell’s Hotel album review

The best Blues you can get this month

TODO alt text

Higham was the engine room of Imelda May’s best albums, and Hell’s Hotel puts his period correct 1950s croon and clickety-clack rockabilly guitar out front. The macabre title track is a scream (like Thriller reimagined by Eddie Cochran), When You Smile and In Summer are radio-playlist hooky – and with Robert Plant locking tonsils on Please Give Me Something, it’s well worth checking in/out.
