Little Beaver

  • Party Down [Cat, 1974] B+

Consumer Guide Reviews:

Party Down [Cat, 1974]
The great T.K. guitarist (né Willie Hale) has a problem when he sings, which is that he can't. Ruined last year's blues album, but somehow it doesn't get in the way of this dance-groove item. The lyrics sound as if they were made up on the spot by somebody with a lot of common sense, and Beaver talks that talk as he goes about his work, which is seeing to the aforementioned groove. B+
