-Don't Be Talkin' Smack-
CD Review - By Bob Silvestri
of the area's premier bands, The Headers, has released a new CD Don't
Be Talkin' Smack a twelve song collection of vintage rockabilly style
music with a modern update. An amalgam of rock, blues and jazz the band
(Bobby Lebell-guitars, Scott Freilich- upright bass and Dan Stoll-drums)
redefines the style of Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins and others from the
early days of rock and roll. All band members are consummate musicians,
Lebell and Freilich are members of the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame and
Lebell was recently honored as the top notch guitarist he is when Gretsch
Guitars named him one of their endorsed guitarists a prestigious and
deserving honor for him. That endorsement obviously inspired him to
write the leadoff track from the disc "Brand New Gretsch Guitar"
where he shows off those guitar chops. "Ragtop Daddy", the
title cut "Don't Be Talkin' Smack", the Elvis inspired "Crazy,
Crazy, Crazy", a choice cover of the classic "Sandman"
and the jaunty ode to love "You Lift Me Up" are all outstanding
tracks. Special guest Ray Hangen adds drums to "Bun in the Oven"
and "Offa My Mind". Check out www.theheaders.com
