Album Notes
Oreo Blue: "Blues Covers Rock" by Gary Hutchison

This album is a long-time-in-coming idea from Gary Hutchison to take tried-and-true classic rock standards and give them a blues makeover. 8 familiar track titles suddenly take a moment to pick up the lyric to recall what song might be referenced. What seemed to be a novelty turned into something rather cool, different and catchy in its own right. Thanks to the arrangement and production assistance from longtime collaborator and keyboardist, Rick Endel, Gary Hutchison delivers these new leases on what must have seemed tired standards. Jimmy Buffet's "Margaritaville" is delivered as a Rhumba, BTO's "Taking Care of Business" is a driving shuffle, Jimi Hendrix's "Purple Haze" has been transformed into a darker, heavier dirge with a little more angst than the original. "Never Been to Spain" made famous by Three Dog Night has turned into a repetitive blues funk quite distant from what Hoyt Axton envisioned as a frolicy truck drivin' song. The EP ends up with Ted Nugent's "Cat Scratch Fever" that is more reminiscent of something from the lower Arkansas Delta than urban Michigan. Something you just have to hear for yourself.
