Shane Speal - 12 Stones (2011)
The 2011 solo album by the King of the Cigar Box Guitar. Recorded live in the studio. Features "Mother Leeds," Speal's murder ballad about the Jersey Devil and "Tattoo of You." Many of these songs are part of Shane Speal's Snake Oil Band live shows.
"A Shane Speal album is always a welcome release and Twelve Stones is no exception.Speals seemingly bottomless enthusiasm is in abundance throughout, as is his energy and willingness to mix things up and experiment with different styles.The result is that the listener has, quite simply, a Good Time and this, one suspects,is Speals aim.Get together,have a good time.A worthy intention in these increasingly alienated,troubled times.Pick up 12 Stones today." - Hollowbelly
