Pimps & Preachers

by: Paul Thorn

Album Artwork

(Perpetual Obscurity)

Paul Thorn just never ceases to amaze me. He always manages to weave his past experiences as the son of a Holiness minister and his rock and roll life into a multi-colored musical tapestry that always leaves me with a big smile on my face. I am most definitely a fan.

I was really pleased to see Muscle Shoals picker Kelvin Holly added to the mix this go round, and Paul’s band is still “tighter than panty hose two sizes small,” to quote J.J. from Good Times.

The record is chock full of great songs, including one that is perhaps my favorite, a song about a tattoo called “Love Scar.”

Thorn goes pure honky tonk country with “Tequila is Good for the Heart,”and “I Hope I’m Doing This Right” is another great tune about trying to live the best life you can. Other stand outs are  “Ray Ann’s Shoes,” “Weeds in My Roses,” and “Buckskin Jones.” But I also like  “I Don’t Like Half the Folks I Love” and the beautiful “That’s Life.”

Every time Paul puts out a new album I am the first in line. To me, he stands for everything good about Southern Songwriters. We are all so happy to claim him as one of our own.
