The Headers
-Don't Be Talkin' Smack-

CD Review - By Bob Silvestri

One 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 for more information about the band and their new release Don't Be Talkin' Smack.
