(May 20, 2015): Steve Gibbons Band – Tulane

K-SHE Classic.  From the 1977 album, Rollin’ On.  A cover of the 1970 Chuck Berry tune off sweetmeatthe album Back Home.  Joan Jett would do a pretty notable cover too about 10 years later.  Given the song’s provenance, it’s not too surprising that this became a “Klassic”.  It followed an earlier tune, “Speed Kills,” off the Gibbons Band’s 1976 debut long player, Any Road Up, that is also a classic.  And, of course, the 1978 Down In The Bunker album got more STL air play than any of them.  Gibbons’ band always had a lot of affinity with The Move and the Electric Light Orchestra, with members like Trevor Burton, Danny King, and later Bev Bevan.
