Real people and real music, it does not get any more real than that.
All Music Guide - CampbellTrue Stories is veteran blues guitarist Jimmy Thackery's Telarc follow-up to We Got It. On this freewheeling disc, Thackery slightly peppers his modern electric blues with elements of rock, soul, and country. The presence of saxophonist Jimmy Carpenter adds a rockin' aspect to True Stories that the disc would have lacked without him. Highlights of the 11 tracks include Carpenter's sax vehicle "Crazy 'Bout a Saxophone," Thackery's original "Got It Going On," and Roy Buchanan's epic "The Messiah Will Come," the disc's tour de force clocking in at nearly nine and a half minutes.
