Johnny Legend - I Itch 2014
Fans rightfully got excited in early 2013 when word got out that Mr. Legend was flying over to Finland to record a new album.While the long time coming disc is now out and it's pretty solid .Simply titled "I Itch" and hits us with a kool mix of originals and covers ( 12 tracks in total). If your a fan of Johnny Legend this is just what you would expect : rockabilly/rock n roll with a sense of humor and maybe depending on your view a little offbeat. Highlights include: " I'd Rather Be a Bum"," I'm Loaded","Mexican Love" and the stellar " I Itch (Like a Sonuvabitch)".
Just like in the past, Legend is backed by a really killer band ; The Fightin' Finnabillies (Sami Roine, Mika Railo, "Jami" Haapanen ,Miki Lamarr and Boppin' Pete) and these cats really nail it here.Sure " I Itch" may not be everyone's cup of tea but if it's yours you'll love it.If it isn't you may want to take a chance here cause this puppy is surprisingly good and has more than enough bark to grab your attention.
