ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Lightning Hall is a folk, blues and rock artist in New Mexico. Gasoline is his third release of all original music. Fans of Deguello-era ZZ Top and the Fabulous Thunderbirds will like it, but these aren’t re-envisioned versions of classic songs, they are truly original,

It’s like a cruise downtown on a hot, humid summer night in his own hometown of Galveston, Texas. From the roadhouse blues of “Lost In The Shuffle” and “Double Talking Blues” to the funky R&B of “That Joker’s Wild” to the blues-rock slide work of the title track and points in between, Gasoline delivers a bluesy punch.

An album highlight, “These Ain’t the Blues” comes off like classic R&B played by an all-star Southern rock band. But the lyrics, taken with the songs upbeat tempo, give it black humor that’s the antithesis of a “Freebird”. Another is “Just Because You Can”, a Hound Dog Taylor like, raucous electric blues about regrets, highlighted by Lightning’s singular guitar work. It’s an excellent example of what he calls his “homegrown street blues”.

Further showcasing Lightning Hall’s broad skills in songwriting and guitar, Gasoline contains two songs taken from his earlier releases of acoustic music. Catwalk in Hell is an inspired contemporary acoustic blues and Chasing Sunshine is a folksy blues about the Depression era.

Like revered jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt, Lightning Hall plays, and plays well, in spite of serious burn injuries to his hands. Gasoline is his third release with the desire to present quality music with an original voice. With the exception of final mastering, vocals by one Deborah L. Frazier and drum loops which he arranged, Lightning Hall is responsible for all the instruments, arrangements, songwriting and production.
