The albums 11 tracks are a mix of Gibbons original tunes along with covers of classics including Muddy Waters Standing Around Crying and Rollin and Tumblin, along with Bo Diddley favorites as well with Bring It To Jerome and Crackin Up.As for the album content, check it out Hey now! Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, he says. Its no secret there are several favorites from the way-back starting with not one, but two, from the Bo Diddley catalog [Bring It to Jerome and Crackin Up]. We dusted off an old Gretsch Duo-Jet guitar which put it squarely with that infamous Bo Diddley sound. Once covered, we made way into another sidea much earlier number from Muddy Waters, Standing Around Crying. The ragged edges with the meanness of James bad self on harp seemed to fit the bill to enter the lineup. Favorites? Gibbons says, Missin Yo Kissin is a gift from Miz Gibbons. She knows what girls want and laid it out cold. And Second Line is a definite throwback to many good days and nights down New Orleans way. Other tracks on The Big Bad Blues are easy pickin, sayin it all. Its a street affair.Gibbons has been a blues fan and devotee since childhood. I suspect Jimmy Reed did me in early on. The inventiveness of that high and lonesome sound remains solid and stridently strong to this day. We could go on to mention the lineup of usual suspects, Howlin Wolf, Muddy, all three Kings [B.B., Albert and Freddie]. The lengthy list of champions are forever carved in stone.
