What’s in a name? For Theodore Joseph Ted Horowitz it’s about character with a little sexual innuendo thrown in for good measure.
Poppa Chubby is a no nonsense blues artists who takes no prisoners. He has returned with a new album titled Two Dogs.
His voice is gritty and many of his lyrics have an edge. The title track, “Sam Lay’s Pistol,” “We Won’t Back Down,” and “Preexisting Conditions” examine the world through Chubby’s eyes within a blues framework.
There are two live bonus tracks, which close the album. Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” and the Rolling Stones “Sympathy For The Devil” are a raw listening experience but good examples of the power of his live show.
Two Dogs is a blast of basic modern-day blues. If you are looking for something a little different, then this may be an album for you.
