• tom gillam Good for You (CD, £1.75)

    label: Blue Rose

    Never Look Back is a thoroughly entertaining and highly literate burst of classic songwriter-driven rock. His knack for a strong hook blends the edgier side of Americana with muscular '70s-style guitar rock. Gillam's vision is facilitated throughout by his crack band, some of whom he's played with since high school, all of whom play with effortless and intuitive commitment. Tractor Pull (Craig Simon on guitar; Tim McMaster on bass; Dave Latimer on drums; and producer Joe Carroll on acoustic and baritone guitars) are the perfect vehicle for Gillam's songwriting voice and slide guitar, gliding effortlessly between straight-ahead rock, moody ballads, and simple acoustic numbers.
