It is "recorded live' and it makes you Verified Purchase. RHH, where have you been all my life!!! This collection of songs requires maxing out the volume however you are playing it!
I am a total fan now. Besides being packed, start to finish with ass kicking rock, the recording is awesome. It is "recorded live' and it makes you feel you are sitting in a studio watching and listening to the Rev, Jimbo and Taz ram about a butt load to rock in your ears.
This beats the absolutely over produced garbage nowadays. Catchy lyrics, wicked good beats and bass line to eat from, add up to a perfect combo. To split hairs, it has a rockabilly edge, a few twangs here and there and MORE intensity and spirit then the most ferocious metal speed, heavy, what have you album.
Order today!!!! Good guitar, not so good vocals as Horton Heat's voice is not very good, but he enunciates ok and lyrics are fun and to the point. Seems very original in its style, which reminds me a little of Jimmy Hendrix.
Man these guys sure sound like they have a blast playing together! If you like this genre than you know who these guys are, if not and wanna explore the scene, this'll do it! Fun and upbeat, will make you drive faster than you should! Great tunes, awesome musicians, fun lyrics. Do you need this? Bought this sometime ago but just getting around to reviewing it. I thought I had done it already.

Price : Heath had married a former bandmate from Sweetbriar, Jenny Turner, and together they had a child, Kendall; they decided that the rock-and-roll lifestyle was over and that it was time to have normal adult jobs.
The band also included long time friend Tim Alexander. Around , Heath was known as "Big Jim the Sound Guy" by those who frequented two warehouses that by night became music venues, Theater Gallery and The Prophet Bar while playing with. Heath decided then and there to start trying to get solo gigs. When Heath showed up for soundcheck, Hobbs told him his stage name was going to be "Reverend Horton Heat".
The title "Reverend" was a total shock to Heath. The Horton part was already Hobbs' nickname for Heath and the rest was a shortened version of his last name, Heath except spelled "Heet" Heath changed that part to "Heat". But Hobbs had already made flyers and listed the show in the papers as Reverend Horton Heet. At that first show, to Heath's surprise, there was a healthy audience who enjoyed his sets and were calling him "Reverend".
So, Heath, being somewhat poor and desperate decided to take the name except for the spelling of Heet. All of this transpired somewhere around the time of Heath's divorce from Jenny Turner. Within several weeks of starting to play as Reverend Horton Heat, Heath began recruiting local musicians to play with him, sometimes unrehearsed. As Tim Alexander had a full-time gig with Asleep at the Wheel, the band became a trio.
Kaplan would be replaced by Mike Goodsell on drums. After a gig in Houston, Jim Wallace approached Jack Barton after the show and asked to try his bass as the band was tearing down the gear. His double slap style attracted the interest of Heath and he obtained Jim Wallace's phone number. However, Heath and Wallace did not meet formally at that gig. With future gigs on the books, the earliest being only two weeks away, Heath called Wallace and asked him to be in the band. Heath drove to Houston to talk to Wallace about being in the band and Wallace agreed.
To replace Baranowski on drums was David Mabry. This line-up was the first to break into the markets in the upper Midwest like Chicago, Kansas City and St. They toured and promoted the new single even though it was with Barton and Baranowski.

Please try again later. Verified Purchase. Oh well. The highlight is the first 6 songs really! Then the change of pace slow country blues Someone In Heaven.
I personally love the variety. Accompanied by drummer Scott Churilla - and on stand up bass by Jimbo Wallace - Rumble Strip is the rockabilly jam later in the set that stands out. Party Mad sneaks in some piano nobody credited while Lonesome Man is just another good, catchy country blues tune. But this trio is just surprisingly good. It started festively with We 3 Kings. Just call me a confirmed believer in The REV too.
One person found this helpful. Little slow to arrive but worth the wait. After getting a second copy of this disc from Amazon and not finding anything other than the music tracks on it, I suspect that the "enhanced" version has been discontinued and only the non-enhanced version is available.
Hopefully they will update their website to reflect that. Other than that, this is typical Horton Heat- a lot of great songs, with one or two mediochre songs. Classic Reverend! Call it in twisted! You cannot go wrong with the Rev. I'm very pleased with my purchase. The seller informed me that the product was broken and cancelled the order. I got the refund and everything went well. Reverend Horton Heat hasn't put out a "proper" studio record in the last five years, which makes "Revival" his most recent studio effort and hopefully not his last.
This is on yet another record label. Money that was wisely spent. Just like his last release, "Lucky 7", and the one before, "Spend A Night In The Box", "Revival" continues a bit of a trend toward more "mature" songs. He still rips it up on plenty of tracks. And his live shows are always high-energy. But the psychobilly tendencies are starting to be replaced by a lot more mid-tempo songs.
The production on his last few records are much cleaner than his earlier efforts. Country influences run thru a few songs.Bucks Reverend Horton Heat. Album The Full-Custom Gospel Sounds of the Reverend Horton Heat. Bucks Lyrics. I said Honey I sent you bucks So you could buy some car.
