Paul Mark & The Van Dorens SMARTEST MAN IN THE ROOM Vinyl Record

Paul Mark & The Van Dorens SMARTEST MAN IN THE ROOM Vinyl Record
NOTE: This 12' vinyl LP includes a FREE DOWNLOAD CARD for all tracks, including the 3 bonus tracks included on the CD version! Flipping off the board room from the roots rock mountain top...Paul Mark's ninth CD, Smartest Man in the Room, is like no other blues rock release you've heard. Cut in New Orleans and Memphis with his raucous collaborators, the Van Dorens, this is the one that makes good on all the iconoclastic promise of Mark's previous CDs. The vocals roar, the guitars claw at the earth, the band swaggers through the swamp, and the warehouse ambience grabs both aficionados and new-comers by the neck for a soul-throttling ride. Try to recall when a contemporary blues release - great song after great song - left you asking "Who is that?" Nose-thumb the celebrity-driven audio and talent-show TV drivel. Stomp on the 1% rogues gallery. Strap in and listen to this witty/gritty stink bomb of a record. And decide yourself. Play it loud. Helmets recommended. 'Mark's a Dickensian conglomerate of honked-off preacher, university professor turned spooky drunkard...Infectious as a virus..Shake it 'til you fall down.' - Mark S. Tucker, FAME "...Literally bristles with raw energy... Mark's gravelly vocals and reverberating guitar power every track... Impressive stuff indeed!" - Mick Rainsford, Blues in Britain.
