LP version. German duo Grits 'n Gravy returns with Second Shot. Grits 'n Gravy still consists of drummer and singer Mighty Mike (The Juke Joint Pimps, Voodoo Rhythm) and Cat Lee King, a young and skinny piano player with a big voice. Who knows where he gets it, but he has the soul of Ray Charles and the mean attack of Bunker Hill. The guys spent two days in the studio to lay down 12 tracks, 10 of which made the final cut. Musically, Grits 'n Gravy still stands for '50s rock 'n' roll, raw rhythm 'n' blues, and early soul. While their first release consisted mainly of covers, this time the duo has written seven originals, which appear alongside interpretations of "Tell a Whale of a Tale" (Wynonie Harris) and "Act Right" (Wynona Carr), as well as an inspired re-working of "I Put a Spell on You" (Screamin' Jay Hawkins). in order to broaden their sonic palette, Mike and Cat invited a few friends from Ray Collins' Hot Club to add double-bass, guitar, and saxophones on selected tracks.
