CD Review – “Stone Crazy” – Kevin Burt
“Stone Crazy” – Kevin Burt
It is my privilege to review Kevin Burt’s newly released CD. This is his first release since he joined the team at Gulf Coast Records. Kevin recorded Stone Crazy in Nederland Texas where Mike Zito resides in June of 2020 at MARZ studios. Mike produced this release and plays lead guitar on most of the cuts.
“I Ain’t Got No Problem With It” is a nice upbeat tune to get started with featuring Kevin’s great lyrics and a catchy melody leaving one with good expectations of the production quality.
“Purdy Little Thang” speaks to something we have all witnessed about how a certain kind of “pretty” can control a whole room. Undeniable! Fun stuff.
Kevin often writes that his wife and partner Nicole provides inspiration for much of his work. “Stone Crazy” the title track is one of the finest examples of this. Love it is!!
On “You Get What You See” Kevin is joined by fellow Gulf Coast Records artist Jimmy Carpenter with some great saxophone work and a jamming horn section. Once again great production quality.
“Something Special About You” provides a great blend of Mike Zito’s electric guitar and Kevin on acoustic.
Then there are messages inspired by the times we are living in like in “Same Old Thing” that will have you singing along with Kevin. On this cut with the help of the studio Kevin plays all the guitars. The most heartfelt message comes in “Got to Make a Change” speaking about social change from within.
Then there is “Bustin Out” Kevin’s personal status song about where he is headed. With talents like Kevin Burt possesses we all hope he is headed “to the top”. This was the other song on the CD that Kevin plays all the guitars, studio magic.
Well recorded, very well mixed, good job everyone at Gulf Coast Records.
