A vintage warmth oozes from the speakers as the seasoned crew of Terraplane Special delivers a set of time-honored covers. “Why You Been Gone So Long,” “That Nasty Swing” and “Lead Pencil Blues” are just a few of the home-cooked treats. The vocals, though hardly dazzling, are solid, and the chops exhibited by fiddle player Scarlet Rivera and blues harp blower Chet Dixon are a major part of the fun. Topping it all off is a distinctive scratch-and-crack quality from the trash-can drummer and washboard player. Whether generating an easy, downhome vibe or a spirited roadhouse stomp, this band captures the heart and soul of the music. Their recordings could work well in the right film/TV setting.
