ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Guitar Jocks everywhere, this one is for you! Hot vintage amps, wah wah pedals, fat analog tone, and all the drama the lyrics can take!

The first track, "That’s Just How Much", is a great opener for the 7th CD from Hot Texas Tunes. Sonic sounds that tell the story of the blues even before the lyrics begin the tale.

The title track, "Guitar Jock", is dedicated to all Guitar Jocks everywhere.

No story-line is sacred here; even the age old tale "Cinderella" gets a blues-rock makeover!

"Wants Her Guitar Man" is one that reminds me of being in high school and trying to get the girls’ attention at the dances. Back then, it really was all about the guitar, so I bought a guitar, and of course, got the girl.

"Seven Deadly" is an ironic reminder that there is no redemption without sin. I love the “sin as addiction” thing going on in the lyrics, and I was anticipating a big smoking lead break in the middle of this one, but like the song says, “He tricks you, and he don’t give a damn”. The flute-like keys actually work disarmingly well.

"Country Girl" is a story tune featuring Keith Goggin on lead guitar. Keith Goggin is also a Sugar Land area guitar slinger who fills in with The Ed Maly Band whenever Keith Cannon is out of town.

"If You Were a Guitar" is a powerful blues confessional with some great lead licks by Keith Goggin again. As indicated by these lyrics, the wives of all guitar players should be canonized for all they have to endure because of the guitar.

"Get-ter Bug" came about after one of many trips to the Austin Songwriters’ Group Seminars. Ed says he gets a lot of inspiration from the many guest speakers and teachers they bring in for their three-day seminars.

"Wah Wah Eyes" tells the tale of a musician in love with his wife. Isn’t that just like a musician; he can’t even talk about love without throwing a wah wah pedal in there somewhere. Keith Cannon does some tasteful lead here; he never uses a pick. This track also has great jazz drumming from Mike Snelling and bass from Don Irby.

The guitar theme continues in the next song, "Guitar Man". It should be noted here that piano men can also do fancy finger work as shown in the keyboard work from Darren Ross.

"Happy Blues" has some really cool sonic tones and colors happening. I like the lyrical line, “Whenever I’m crazy”, stated like it is a regular event.

I also like the keyboards in "Demo". I’m playing it right now. The original cut closed with, “Even Jesus had to demo”.

"You Just Keep On" is a tale questioning why some people stay together. I love the last line, “But when you’re talking ‘bout love, no one ever seems to know”.

The next song, "History", is a blues/rock shouter against high taxes. I love the fat drum sound in this recording. The drums, a 1965 Ludwig set, is the kit most often used in the Hot Texas Tunes studio.

My speakers are smoking again with the creative wah wah lead by Ed on "For a Song". I guess it’s true; musicians will do any and all things for a song. Nice lyrics!

"I’m So Sorry" was a first-take demo to rehearse the song, and that’s all that was needed. This is the real deal here; three chords and the truth!

"To Get You on the Dance Floor" is a live-show opener the band does with different lyrics for each gig. It always sets the tone for a good time to be had for all.
