Album Notes
Hector, a two-time winner of East Coast Rocker’s “Best Guitarist” award, has more than 35 years of live performances, including two appearances at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame American Masters Series.

“Old School Thang”, Hector’s 11th album on the Ghetto Surf label, features a supporting cast of musicians that have been part of his musical family for 35 years adding horns, keyboards and harp to Hector’s more familiar styling of bass, drums and guitar.

 “She’s Gone” is a story of heartbreak, sugar coated by a sumptuous layering of fierce blues guitar and horns on a bedrock Latin groove. Sim Cain: drums Tim Tindall: bass David Nunez: keyboards saxophones: Tommy LaBella trumpet and bone: Steve Jankowski

 “Goin’ Down” is Billy Hector’s tribute to Freddie King’s interpretation of the Don Nix iconic tune with horns and piano.
Sim Cain:drums Winston Roye:bass Tommy LaBella:saxophones Steve Jankowski:trumpet and bone Arne Wendt:piano

 “Old School Thang” , a funktified fan favorite, showcases the expertise and high level of musianship the Billy Hector power trio delivers every night it performs.

 “Fake I.D” is a sly and humorous ode to taking life as it comes and letting the chips fall where they may. This track also features Billy’s signature killer slide guitar work with a sparkling assist from Mickey Melchiondo on guitar.

 “Vitamin Big Daddy” is a healthy dose of bawdy horn driven blues that meets or exceeds the recommended daily intake of musical nutrients. Just what the doctor ordered.

 “Come On Home” is an infectious slide driven groove accented with the harp stylings of Ken Sorensen.

 Evil, Slick ‘n Sly”, is a slow grinder with a sexy groove that conjures up the pitfalls of amorous relationships. Sim Cain:drums Tim Tindall:bass

 “Hammer” grabs you in with it’s funky foot tapping intro. If your love needs fixing, Hector’s Albert Collins-esque guitar work gets the job done. Larry Crockett:drums Winston Roye:bass

 “Rita” is a rowdy old time barroom blues in the tradition of St. James Infirmary that tells the tragic tale of a fading barfly.
Sim Cain:drums Tim Tindall:bass Suzan Lastovica:backing vocal

 “Short and Sweet Blues” is just that. Two and three quarter’s minutes of slow blues bliss. Sim Cain:drums Winston Roye:bass David Nunez:organ Tommy LaBella:saxophones trombone:Pete Maurer trumpet:Carlos Francis

 “People of the World” is a funk-drenched plea for peace on earth featuring a soulful sax solo by Stax recording artist Mel Taylor.
