Blue Money Band - No Money Down (1978 us, tough boogie roots rock with southern feel, 2011 remaster)

Ex Woolies and Chuck Berry’s backup band doing some terrific boogie rockin’ here. Great chugging chugging music. The material presented here consists mostly of somewhat loud and fast boogie blues rock, with fairly commercial production and some use of synthesizer. 

Jeff Baldori left the Woolies in the late 70’s and formed his own band called Blue Money. Jeff Baldori’s Blue Money band released its first album, “No Money Down” in 1978.
