DOYLE BRAMHALL II -- Doyle Bramhall II (Geffen)

Bramhall was one fourth of Arc Angels, a band he formed with Charlie Sexton and half of Stevie's Ray Vaughan's band, Double Trouble. I had high expectations for this CD, since the Arc Angels disc was so good. Unfortunately, those expectations were dashed as soon as I hit the play button. This is the lamest CD I've heard in a long time. It starts off bad and goes downhill from there. Bramhall's backup band on the CD are Wendy and Lisa (both ex-members of Prince's band), but even they can't save this turkey. Avoid this CD at all costs.
