Tear Down The Walls

The Dave Perri Band

Best known for playing note-for-note classic-rock covers at places like Gator's on Blind Pass, Dave Perri unveils this full-length of originals that he recorded with the four-piece he fronts. And, yes, Tear Down the Walls is exactly what you'd expect from a bar band: familiar-sounding songs sung by a capable, everyman vocalist and buoyed by Stonesy lead guitar licks (courtesy of Ron Rogy). There are hard-luck story songs ("She's Leavin' Vegas"), novelty tunes ("She's Just Like Paris Hilton") and the working-man anthem "American Greed." 3 stars
