Bone Daddy — What You Wanted
(Porcupine 807950, 2006, CD)
by Jon Davis, Published 2007-03-01
This Idaho band has been working the jam band circuit for a few years now, and this is their fourth full-length album. They play a moderately rootsy brand of rock, comparable to Big Head Todd and the Monsters or Phish or, to be less charitable, Hootie and the Blowfish. The songs are well written, arranged, and performed. On a few tracks there are strings, and even a few electronic touches. Keyboards, mostly piano and organ, are pretty prominent. They avoid monotony by covering a variety of tempos. In short, if I heard it on the radio, I’d probably say, “That was pretty decent.” Bone Daddy could probably pick up a few new fans by opening a show for Dave Matthews or Widespread Panic (which they’ve already done, for all I know), and I’m sure they play these songs differently every time in true jam band tradition. My favorite track is “These Are the Days”, which features string parts reminiscent of classic Beatles tunes. There you go. Bone Daddy.
