17 VULTURES David Gogo
This is Gogo’s most diverse and rockin’-est record to date. There’s plenty of blues to sink your teeth into and lots of greasy bump ‘n’ grind to spare. 17 Vultures is one of those discs that makes you glad to be alive.
17 Vultures features 5 David Gogo originals with frankly stunning covers of tunes by The Beatles, Barbeque Bob, Doug & The Slugs and Bob Dylan. Gogo usually keeps his acoustic and electric stuff separate, but after listening to The Beatles’ “White Album”, he decided to accentuate both on the new disc. “In the past I was afraid that if I mixed my acoustic songs with my more rocking material it would confuse people” he says. “I don’t think I was giving (them) enough credit. I was listening to The White Album recently and thought ‘well, the diversity shown on this collection doesn’t seem to hurt’!”
