Overview

Big Sandy's solo debut heralds a major shift away from the retro-Western swing of his work with the Fly-Rite Boys; Dedicated to You instead celebrates the classic L.A. low rider sound, sporting covers of 15 doo wop and R&B chestnuts originally cut between 1954 and 1961 (with one original composition, "Baby Baby Me," tossed in for good measure). Recorded with pianist Dewey Terry, one-half of the '50s rock & roll duo Don & Dewey, the album features what is perhaps Big Sandy's finest vocal work to date, with lovely and soulful performances of largely forgotten ballads like "Lonely Guy," "Gloria," and "Death of an Angel." Clearly a labor of love, Dedicated to You is one solo project that's driven not by ego but by genuine affection, as well as an honest desire to try something new.
