Tommy Castro is Delbert McClinton's more talented kid brother. I had been waiting for this San Francisco rockin' blues guitarist to put another one in the ditches. Finally, this past November the blistering "Greedy" / "That's All I Got" (Alligator Records) arrived. Nobody plays roadhouse like this anymore: the rock snarl and the soul heart.  His songs don't make me want to sing along; they make me want to scream along.
