CB Takes a Ride With Fred Eaglesmith


There are a lot of cool rock n roll songs about cars and driving.  Here is one of my favorites.  Maybe it has something to do with my old man having owned a Pontiac. Or maybe because this song rocks.  Fred Eaglesmith won’t be familiar to  a lot of folks.  He’s a CB fave and a good Canadian guy to boot.  Give it a listen I think you’ll like it.  Might remind you of a few other similar guys (CB hates to make comparisons. Fred has his own style).  Fred is in that same club of rockers I like.  Sings songs about things like Pontiac’s and other things I can relate to.  The song sounds like a car running a little rough.  There’s a good solid beat, great lyrics, vocals and a wicked guitar solo.  It sounds like a Pontiac, Fred is a treasure.  Some people try hard to be cool.  Fred just is cool.  Crank it!

“She puts on the radio, rolls down the window, lays her head back,  It’s a Pontiac”.

      !990’s .Lipstick, Lies and Gasoline is the album. Fred is unknown everywhere even in his home turf. He is a pretty down to earth good guy who makes music that i dig. Quality stuff. He has a real loyal following. Doesn’t have a bad record. This cut is a beauty.

      I would have been surprised if you had. I love the tune and Fred’s work.. I think that other Canadian guy Shaffer got him on Letterman.
