4 - OMAR & THE HOWLERS - TOO MUCH IS NOT ENOUGH - (CD) 
BIG GUITAR MUSI


Omar Dykes is no stranger to Jimmy Reed material. Having released On the Jimmy Reed Highway in 2007 (Ruf Records) with Jimmie Vaughan and many of his other good friends, Dykes is not only familiar with Jimmy Reed, but the songs are almost a part of him. Including a disclaimer as the liner notes, Dykes states that he knows he has already released a Jimmy Reed cd. Too Much is not enough is a different approach and the result of his original vision for the tribute to be released as an Omar and the Howlers record. These tracks were recorded before the previous release and are the last recordings Dykes did with Gary Primich before his friends unexpected death. Dykesthought about the possibility of dividing up the songson several different releases, but realized that separating the tracks would not give the songs the justice they deserve. The common thread is the incredible talent featured on both releases. The players, which also include Gary Clark, Jr., Jay Moeller, Ronnie James, and Derek OBrien, are so good that the music speaks for itself. These songs deserve to be shared and appreciated. The cd is dedicated to the memory and unstoppable talent of Gary Primich.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Too Much 02. I Gotta Let You Go 03. Honest I Do 04. I Aint Got You 05. High And Lonesome 06. Going To New York 07. Roll In Rhumba 08. Take Out Some Insurance 09. Outskirts Of Town 10. Im Gonna Ruin You 11. Shame, Shame, Shame 12. You Dont Have To Go
