The Reverend Payton’s Big Damn Band

So Delicious

Yazoo Records

4 Stars

There are only three members in the Big Damn Band, and Reverend Payton has definitely trimmed down, so maybe the name is a misnomer; but they are big on stage. In concert they are a story-telling, crowd-pleasing force of country blues goodness. If you caught them at the crooked i last year, you will remember alternating your time between shouting out choruses while you danced and standing mesmerized while the Reverend simultaneously played bass, rhythm, and lead slide solos on his vintage National Trojan Resonator guitar. So Delicious may be the most fun you have this year listening to authentic Robert Johnson-style blues. Danceable jams like “Pot Roast and Kisses” can keep you toe-tapping all day. Crank up “Raise a Little Hell” or “Hell, Naw” while you drive and you’ll be doing 80 before you know it. I can’t wait to hear this stuff live, though - that’s where this band really shines. – Bryan Toy
