The Lee Boys
August 8, 2006
Is your playing feeling a tad stale? Are you having a tough time even inspiring yourself, let alone an audience? Well, try this: Put the Lee Boy’s Say Yes! in the CD player, grab your guitar, and try to get close to the insanely lyrical, vocal-like qualities that sacred-steel dynamo Emanuel Roosevelt Collier is throwing down, and you’ll be on your way. Like former GP cover artist Robert Randolph, Collier uses judicious touches of wah-wah to lend his lines even more vocal inflections. And when the band starts pushing him, Collier lets it rip with screaming harmonics and cascading country runs at blazing speeds. Inspired yet? Arhoolie.
