Potliquor hailed from Louisiana and straddled the line between country, blues, southern rock and hard rock...all the while throwing in horns just to keep things fresh. With a powerful singer in George Ratzlaff, Potliquor were able to muster some pretty inspired moments on vinyl. This, their elusive second album, "Levee Blues" is widely considered their artistic peak. With an ensemble of female background vocalists in tow, the album bears a certain gospel charm that some of their other efforts were missing. This is a passionate and visceral collection of songs and any lover of the aforementioned genres would be well served to check them out. Ripped from vinyl, here it is, "Levee Blues".
All music says it's southern rock. I'd call it blues-rock with a touch of southern influence and a huge injection of hard rock on several songs. Pot Liquor's first LP from 1970 called Levee Blues. To me it's kind of like Trapeze's album You Are the Music as the ballads are soft and mellow but the rockin' songs are total pounders. Good stuff.
