Stephen Foster and Howler

Stephen Foster is one of the original Muscle Shoals swamp-style players, working alongside such luminaries as Percy Sledge, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Spooner Oldham. He brings a hot band and all that life-experience to his newest release.

A kick-ass microcosm of all that makes the music south of the Mason-Dixon line great (Allmans, Wet Willie, Lynyrd Skynyrd, ZZ Top, and lotsa Little Feat for funk n groove), the nine songs on Howl At The Moon will not only burn down the barn, it'll get the party started to raise the damn thing again!

With the burning opener Mad As Hell (And I Ain't Gonna Take It) garnering much radio and Internet play, Foster and the Howlers — Jay Jernigan (vocals, guitar), Larry Hartsfield (bass, vocals), and Eddie Russell (drums) — keep the flame white hot, along with other choice tracks, especially Mama's Goin' Dancin, When The Train Come Home, Cathead Blues, Middle Class Man and Cat Fever. And with a lyric like "I don't need no Viagra / To help me make my wood," how can you lose?

Track List:

  • Mad As Hell
  • Mama's Goin' Dancin'
  • Wearin' A Hole In The Blues
  • Cathead Blues
  • Middle Class Man
  • Still Blue
  • Cold Fever
  • Hammer Blues
  • Why Do They Go?
