This CD contains a very listenable collection of songs, originally on two separate albums made by the Butts Band, paced by ex-Doors Robby Krieger and John Densmore. Robby's post-Doors work is often marked by eclecticism, and the hard and soft rock here is accompanied by or infused with blues, some soul, and a bit of reggae. Still, while almost all the tracks are decent, there is little that is outstanding. Jess Roden's vocals and rhythm guitar highlight the earlier tracks (1-8), reflecting the first album's British lineup save the two ex-Doors. The second group of songs was made by an entirely American outfit. Although the Butts Band's eponymous first album was generally seen as superior, the second album, "Here and Now," had a number of pretty tracks, on display here. Despite the relatively short time after Morrison's death (the Butts Band recorded in the mid-70s), and as you can obviously tell by now, these recordings do not sound anything like the Doors.
