    Haynes Should Be A Household Name Now

    You wouldn't think so in this "American Idol" age, but there's some Southern-style rock out there that's pretty good and gaining some prominence. I'm not talking about the countless reunions by the survivors of Lynyrd Skynyrd. I'm talking about groups like The Bor-Kays, a Memphis band who play sizzling late 60's soul in the vein of Booker T. & The MG's. I'm also talking about The Tedeschi-Trucks Band, whose recent album "Revelator" has all the smarts of a veteran rocker with all the vigor of a youngster. And then, there's Warren Haynes, who's been around for a while, first kicking it with X-rated country singer David Allen Coe. Then falling in with Dickey Betts and The Allman Brothers Band. And finally, forming his own band, Gov't Mule, a group that plays Southern-style rock with soulfulness and a loose freestyle that recalls The Grateful Dead. Now, Haynes has released a solo album, "Man In Motion", an album steeped in 1970's soul music; I don't consider it a coincidence that he's recording for Stax Records, one of the finest soul music record companies that ever existed. Haynes' refreshingly scruffy voice fits in well with Stax as does his remarkably piercing guitar licks. Although there isn't a song on this record that runs less than five minutes, there isn't a dull moment on "Man In Motion". There's a Hurricane Katrina-style scorcher ("River's Gonna Rise"). There's a gutbucket blues ballad here and there ("Your Wildest Dreams", probably the best song on the album). Yet, Haynes also knows a good song when he hears it, as apparent on his brilliant cover of William Bell's "Every Day Will Be Like A Holiday". The North Carolina-bred Haynes is something of a local hero to us in Upstate New York. He's the one responsible for organizing The Mountain Jam Festival, which brings scores of guitar-based bands of almost every ilk (both famous and not) to play in the wilds of Upstate for several days. Haynes should be a household name by now. Maybe this record will rectify that.
