This CD almost slipped through! Now that would've been a real shame, 'cause it's a mighty fine record that pleased my ears from the very first time I gave it a spin. Mississippi Queen delivered an excellent album, and every song has been taken care of with lots of passion, enthusiasm, and rock & roll by the band. All this commitment and plain hard labor results into this sparkling CD that I really like a lot. It's one of those platters that you throw in the player, puff a smoke, drink a beer and enjoy the ride. The selfpenned tracks have been well-matured and they grab you straight away. The coversongs underwent a nice treatment and received a great workover. Johnny Burnette's "Cincinatti Fireball" is a hard to cover song, but I just have to love this version.

"You're My Baby", a Johnny Cash song, mostly known in Roy Orbison's rendition, goes down smoothly. So does Johnny Horton's "You You You", but what really makes my heart tick faster are the selfpenners on this album. Just listen to "Don't Leave Me This Way" or "I'm Going Home"! The musicians are seasoned pro's: Ivan Semeš-Sammy is an awesome guitar picker and Karlo has a very pleasant voice to listen to. Double bass player Jurica completes the treesome and plays his bass the way I like it: producing really cool lines and actually playing the thing, instead of overemphasizing on the "slap-click-clickety-click" that you hear too much nowadays. I can't wait to hear the next album from these boys, but for now, I'm not finished playing this one for a long while! 5 stars from Unc!

Mississippi Queen are:
Jurica Štelma - Upright Bass
Karlo Starčević - Rhythm Guitar, Vocal
Ivan Semeš - Sammy - Lead Guitar

MISSISSIPPI QUEEN is the oldest, true-to-a-rockabilly-bone rockabilly drumless trio in Croatia. Founded in late 1988 by Karlo Starcevic and some other hepcats those days, they soon started playing around the Zagreb area - this is not a beer factory, but capitol city - eventually forming that unique slappin sound provided by Jurica`s bass. Here one has to mention that Mississippi Queen was the reason for Jurica to fall in love with the double bass, later to become Master of Music in String Performance...but, that is another story...Until 2001, MQ had Renato Zgrablic-Pit on the lead guitar, known as the singing bird from the hills for his...
