STRANGER, THE: Self-Titled: CD

Chicago four piece channels the back-to-basics, no-frills, clean guitar work and straightforward vocals of genre forerunners like the Cadillac Tramps and Twistin’ Tarantulas, as well as the layered depth of contemporaries like Th’ Legendary Shack Shakers. Worthwhile, attainable goodness for regular folk.
