A mid-'80s comeback
2009 | Label: Alligator Records

A still-on-the-way-up Stevie Ray Vaughan produced this fabled roadhouse rocker’s mid-’80s comeback, and joined him on guitar for half the tracks. But mostly, he deferred to his mentor, playing rhythm and generally keeping out of the way except on “Double Whammy aka Wham,” his favorite Mack oldie, on which the two muscular guitarists exchange sizzling choruses while draining their whammy bars. Lonnie plays as fast (and powerfully) as the album title suggests, his Flying V… read more »

The Cincinnati Blues Sound

By John Morthland, Contributor

To the best of my knowledge, nobody has ever made a good case for a Cincinnati blues sound, but the Queen City was no stranger to the blues. A rough-hewn, urban backwater on the banks of the Ohio River (which is also the Kentucky state line), Cincinnati is arguably the most southern city to find itself misplaced north of the Mason-Dixon line, and as home to King Records played occasional host to a variety of… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Co-produced by Stevie Ray Vaughn, this was Lonnie’s ticket back to the show after a few years on the sidelines. To say it was an inspired date would be putting it mildly. With his batteries recharged, Mack was in peak form, playing and singing better than ever. A major highlight is an inspired duet between Stevie and Lonnie on “Wham (Double Whammy),” going toe to toe for several exciting choruses. – Cub Koda
