Although they come from Southern California, Orange County to be precise, Robert Jon Burrison and his Wreck have the compass pointed strongly and proudly towards the ‘deep South’, towards that genre which has written a chapter in the history of American rock; I’am talking about Southern rock. Being on the scene close to a decade now, with a pretty good discography, their new “Last Light On The Highway” has put them up there alongside Blackberry Smoke and Whiskey Myers, with the task of representing that sound, so original and powerful, which came to life in the early ’70’s with The Allman Brothers Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd at the top of the list as their predecessors. Great interaction between slide guitars, female choruses, which give that touch of soul, the deep love for country, blues and rock ‘n’ roll, these are the simple but always winning characteristics of Wreck, with their leader guiding them through the entire album. “Miss Carolina”, the first single from the album, has already presented them in a meaningful and pleasant way, but there are many more moments to underline; “Tired Of Drinkin’ Alone”, distinct and harmonious, “Don’t Let Me Go”, which begins with an excellent guitar riff, up to the relaxed piano intro for ”Gold” and the powerful “This Time Around”. An album with multiple qualities, perfect for introducing Robert Jon & The Wreck to the most intriguing roots-rock fans.
