Info for Roadhouses & Automobiles (Remastered)

Chris Jones, the brilliant guitarist from Reno, Nevada, in 2005 sadly passed away much too early. His last album with Stockfisch from 2003 has posthumously been established over the years as a de facto standard for listening tests and demo sessions. Songs like „No Sanctuary Here“ are used by live mixers for checking the stage PAs, pieces like „Fender Bender“ have repeatedly inspired guit-bass drum trios, the title song „Roadhouse & Automobiles“ has a warm, intense width, which captivates the listeners.

Listening to Roadhouses & Automobiles - also the title song of this album - is really a lot of fun: A Ry Cooder-sound (with tuba und trumpet), Appalachian-style, gurgling solos on the Hammond-organ, outstanding virtuoso instrumentals (unedited!!) and many more – Chris Jones at his best!

„A musical masterpiece - The voice sounds mega-present, the guitar appears extraordinary contoured and corporeal, the accompaniment is in such a way vivid, even an inveterate fan of analog sound will take his hat off.“ (Lothar Brandt, stereoplay)

Chris Jones
His unusual career began at the age of 14, when he was awarded the „Young Composer of the Year“ prize at the renowned Peabody Conservatory in Maryland, USA. By the early 1980s he had already made a name for himself with his unique guitar style, which ranged from sensitive ballad renditions to driving rockers, his soulful vocals and impressive songwriting talents. As well as countless recordings as a studio musician, Jones released three solo albums. Despite his death at the early age of 46, Chris Jones left a legacy which will be remembered long after he‘s gone." Steve Baker
