Refreshingly down-to-earth, the Captain Legendary Band is a breath of fresh air in the oft cookie-cutter world of Nashvegas so many of us are subjected to on the airwaves.
Founded in ''99 by Charlie Hager and Dustin Logan, the eventual additions of Jeff Hager, Jason Spencer and Jeff Tuminello rounded out this noteworthy group of talented young Texans. Their debut offering, "Those Songs", is a 12-cut bronco-buster of a ride, showcasing their Texas Outlaw and traditional country influences, with a shot of southern rock to keep you on the edge of your seat.
So often when bands are fortunate enough to employ gifted mandolin and banjo players, they tend to use the instruments so often that it becomes distracting and monotonous. You won''t find that overkill on this CD. The tasteful, peppered placement of the mandolin, banjo and harmonica is just perfect on this project.
The CD plays like a well-written variety show, with the different actors taking the lead on each song - enough to keep the listeners attention and curiosity as to what''s coming up next. Jason Smith does a great job producing this album, flawlessly revving up your heart to hit the dancefloor then slowly bringing the heart rate back down to rest before the next crescendo hits. The mainly-roadhouse sound of The Captain Legendary Band is nicely broken up by the 3rd coast tune, "Kemah Bay", the melancholy "Cold Texas Night", and the harmony-filled "The Captain". But hold on to yer hats, ya''ll - there''s an unexpected surprise on this CD, and it goes by the name "P & WT". Not for the rugrats, that''s for sure, but an awesome song that''ll make most men shake their head in agreement whether they want to or not! "P & WT" definitely kicks "A" and will most certainly become this band''s live cult anthem. This CD gets the MTM approval stamp of "HELL YEAH!" - treat yourself and become the newest Captain Legendary Band fan...ya just can''t help yourself! - J. Boyd
