My Days/This Town
This is one of those records that makes you want to get up and go see the band out live. The A-side track, “My Days,” is a moaning Chicago-style blues number with a classic rock vice. The group really puts an interesting spin on the old “baby left me” blues tune with a “baby left me with a baby” storyline.
“My Days” is really a players’ track, with the lead throwing about everything in there as he ascends to a frantic pitch, breaks, then rolls into a swirling crescendo.
The B-side “This Town” recounts the classic middle-America teenage lament directed at the city where they grew up. This track is a bit heavier in tone than the previous side, with more classic rock flair thrown in. The two songs stand together as a testament to the band’s versatility and potential.
