JONES, THE: Gravity Blues: LP/CD

This is the remastered version of an album first released in 2000. Most notable for including personnel from Leatherface and HDQ, the original had some belting songs and excellent guitar work. However, I always felt that it came across as somewhat lifeless, resulting in it languishing away in a corner of my collection. Thankfully, that is not the case here as the ten tracks have been given a new lease on life through a much more clear and energetic production, which is really pleasing to hear. The other bonus is that it doesn’t sound dated in any way with the songs standing the test of time. The CD boasts additional tracks from Fatty Jones and Stokoe, both bands sharing key members with The Jones to round off an excellent reissue.
