The Screamin Cheetah Wheelies



Screamin' Cheetah Wheelies was a rock band from Nashville, Tennessee which formed in the early 1990s. The band embraced a southern boogie style which led to comparisons with groups such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers Band, The Black Crowes, Collective Soul, and Cry of Love. The band played at a blues club near Vanderbilt University before being signed to Atlantic Records in 1993. The band drew its name from one of Gary Larson's comics The Far Side

Members Mike Farris (vocals), Rick White (guitar), Bob Watkins (guitar), Steve Burgess (bass) and Terry Thomas (drums) released their self-titled debut album in 1994.[1] The album hit #40 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart.[1] The album was recorded at Ardent Studios in Memphis, Tennessee and produced by Paul Ebersold.[2] "The Screamin' Cheetah Wheelies" was an album that "played like a gateway between guitar hero classic rock and hippie jam band grooves, often combining both within the confines of a single track."[3] And their single "Shakin' the Blues" made the album-rock Top Ten

I didn't download this, but I have it on Cassette. just opened from sealed and it sounds very good. A bit bright in the mix though, typical 90's production.. the guitars are fabulous and were captured with a good amount of grit thankfully.
