Boys & Girls (Platinum Pink & Blue Edition)
A platinum anniversary reissue of Alabama Shakes' debut album in a limited edition blue and pink swirl and sleeved in a dark rendition of the original cover.
Rooting themselves in the finest traditions of Muscle Shoals and Stax Records, Alabama Shakes grows into something very modern and new on their debut album "Boys & Girls." Harnessing the raw energy of an edgy blues-and-rock sound, the band tears into their all-original song line up. Brittany Howard's lively vocals clearly lead the way, but the rhythm section led by Zach Cockrell and Steve Johnson are driving. That is not to take anything away from the intense riffs of lead guitarist Heath Fogg.
