The Big One is The Fun One!
I strongly recommend Bamboo Bert’s disc “The Big One” for fun tropical rock and clever, catchy songs. , It was much fun to re-visit some of Bamboo Bert’s early compositions: “My Baby Loves Jimmy Buffett Music”, “Sweet Ponchatrain” and “That’s What Harassment To Me.” These great songs take us back to the beginning days of Louisiana’s Island Fever, for which founding member Bamboo Bert wrote those and other trop-rock favorites. Now, “The Big One” features Bamboo Bert himself singing and producing some of his best prior work.

The disc’s instrumental, “Marisa” is a gorgeous, wonderful melody and a sweet tribute to Marisa to whom this disc is dedicated. I loved this composition, its melody and the feel that washes over the listener from the smooth-flowing guitar lines.

The new compositions on the album show Bamboo Bert at his best strength — writing clever melodies that stay with you. Once one hears a few lines of “The Big One”, “Lay On a Hammock With Me”, “Just Van Dykin’”, and “The Beach Bump”, the audience is ready to sing along with melodies that are fun and memorable. And speaking of the latter, it would be a phlocking crime if there is not an original dance for “The Beach Bump.” This rousing song demands that the audience be uniformly dancing to a Beach Bump while singing along at each performance. Insider information from Bamboo himself is that such a dance is in the works.

Bamboo Bert’s detective work in “Cold Case Jamaica 1967, ” solving who shot the Deputy Sheriff in Jamaica gives us a more intriguing story than Marley’s and a clever answer, so I say “case closed, finally!”

And I give up on “Three Crazy Parrotheads.” Even listening twice (granted, I had not downed any rum when I listened), I am still working on getting that last sing-along verse down! The song’s fun “add-another-line-to-each-chorus” progression is another clever sing-along-if-you-can challenge Bamboo Bert is throwing to his audience. The drunken crowd on the recording sure did better than I did, but, hey, that’s what an album is for — to listen over and over. I will.
