Background
This is an interesting collaboration, featuring musicians from all over the planet. Rob Mancini is an artist and producer based out of Ireland, guitarist Davy Kerrigan is also from Ireland, while Tony Carey has been in Germany for many years, and drummer Ron Wikso (well known in AOR circles) is in the USA. Guesting are two well known bass players: Neil Murray (Whitesnake, Vow Wow) and Marc Lynn (Gotthard). Formed in 2015, Boneyard Dog have all the makings of a classic rock band, but keeping things modern too with a clean production.


The Songs
Overall it's a bluesy form of classic rock, with lots of harmonica and swampy guitars. It leans to southern rock as well, more traditional than say, a band like Tangier which touched on the commercial AOR side of things. So there's no real pink and fluffies here as you would expect from the band name and album title. Highlights include the moody 'Lonely Road', a reflective southern sounding ballad straight out of the songbook of a guy like Johnny Van Zant for instance. Then there's the chugging hard rock of 'Lay Down The Law', while the opening salvo of 'Mother Lode', is a smokey blues laden affair with harmonica to the fore. 'Paid My Dues' has a funky flavour, and the finale 'Boneyard Dog' surely has its origins direct from the Mississippi Delta.


In Summary
Boneyard Dog will never be accused of setting new trends nor creating groundbreaking music. It is classic rock and blues after all, done many times before over the decades, this being a new interpreation of the sub-genre. A superb collection of players and guests, creating their own tribute and played in their own way.

Good review, George, and to the point! Yep, 8 out of 10 sounds about right. This one has been spinning a few times recently here at Bernd's casa and I really like it. Recommended!
