Ticket to Chicago

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Chris Slawecki
Slide guitarist Dave Hole kicks up a fun ruckus on Ticket to Chicago, his fourth album for Alligator Records. This native of Perth Australia, the Chicago blues label's first overseas signing, realizes for the first time his dream of playing with Chicago blues musicians -- bassist Johnny B.

Gayden Albert Collins, pianist Tony Z Larry McCray, Buddy Guy, and drummer Ray "Killer" Allison Buddy Guy, along with on several tracks a horn section and harmonica courtesy of Billy Branch. The opening "Out of Here" serves as the starter's pistol -- Hole and company play too fast, too loud, and sound too rowdy on just about every one of these 14 songs 13 Hole originals and William Harris' "Bullfrog Blues," here dedicated by Hole to late blues-rock guitarist Rory Gallagher.
