Potliquor - Louisiana Rock and Roll (1973)
Wow, Pot Liquor. A truly great band, from my home state. I was in jr. high school when Pot Liquor was a top regional touring act. Likemany great acts, they never sold records like they should have. But they did tour, and expose many young southerners to what amounts to some of the first "southern rock" bands. I love all their stuff (4 studio albums from 1970-1974), but am particularly partial to Louisiana Rock and Roll. I am glad to see mp3's finally available. With the help of a like minded Louisiana music fan, we have recently put all of their recorded catalog on cd (2 discs), lovingly restored from vinyl damaged by Hurricane Katrina. Some of the best music, ever! And, the best name ever for a southern rock band!

As for "Louisiana Rock and Roll", it rocks! From the opening of "You Can't get there form Here, to the closing track, "Guitar Boogie", this is one of the foinest rock and roll records I have ever heard. Favorite songs include the two mentioned, along with "Waitin' for me at the River", "St. Jude's Blues" and the title track. 5 Stars for "Louisian Rock and Roll". Pot Liquor rocked my generation.
