Speaks his mind on music & movies!
This was my intro to Chris Isaak and his music. I loved his sound right off the top. He was pulling it from the ghosts of all that stuff I really liked, Presley, Cash, Orbison, Everly Brothers, etc.. and he was putting a new slant on it. His slant.
Chris and his band create a sultry, sexy sound. The opening cut gives a pretty good idea what he and the boys do. I hear so much in this song. This was music for CB. Chris and his band create a sultry, sad, lonesome sound at times and it works. But he also has a rocker’s heart and that comes out loud and clear. This is well played music with a bit of an edge. Isaak’s voice is, well just real good. The band rocks out on tunes like “Don’t Make Me Dream About You’. He creates moods and stirs emotions.
Isaak sings with a lot of feeling (A little more feeling Chris) and he does that on ‘Wrong To Love You’. What a great tune with some low down guitar and Isaak feeling the pain in this one. He gets all worked up. On ‘Heart Of the Jungle’, the boys lock into the Bo Diddley beat. Wicked guitar. Chris is feeling whatever he’s feeling on this one. This brings out the ape in CB
Chris Isaak was a breath of fresh air for CB at the time. Just seemed to me that he enjoys what he’s doing. I know CB enjoys it. A big talent to my ears.
