Band You Should Know : Rufus Huff

Named after two obscure blues men, Whistlin' Rufus and Luther Huff, this hard rockin' foursome from Kentucky mine the heavy blues rock scene of the early 70's ala ZZ Top, Free and early Bad Company to great success on their debut self titled release 'Rufus Huff'.

Featuring Grammy Award winning guitar legend Greg Martin of The Kentucky Headhunters and ex Supafuzz rhythm section Dean Smith and Chris Hardesty, and topped off with the tough vocals of Jarrod England, their approach - which is basically the power trio format augmented by a vocalist, won't break any new ground, but if you're a fan of the down and dirty vintage sound of Marshall amps being overdriven, and hearing a Les Paul guitar sing in the tradition of Billy Gibbons, Duane Allman or Paul Kossoff, you owe it to yourself to check this band out. http://www.myspace.com/rufushuff

I love this album. I found them after listening to the Mighty Jerimiah's which also features Greg Martin on guitar and is an awesome mix of blues, rock & gospel. Good stuff.

Interesting post as for me. I'd like to read a bit more about that topic. The only thing this blog misses is some pictures of any gadgets.
