The Dependables


Amoeba Review

01/15/2014

The Dependables arose from the scattered ashes of Blues Magoos, when Joey Stec (also ex-Millennium), Ralph Scala and Ron Gilbert joined forces to pursue their post-psychedelic brand of country soul; Laurel Canyon meets Muscle Shoals, if you will. On their sole album from 1971, Stec's deft guitar work on top of a solid rhythm section provide the bedrock for Scala's keyboards and vocals. A horn section and (especially) the added vocals of the great Claudia Lennear add special touches that put things over the top. "Don't Blame Me" diverts things countryward, and features the fine pedal steel work of Tom Brumley. Side two features a couple of covers: a smokin' duet with Lennear on Ike Turner's "Get It, Get It" and extended, horn-fueled jam on "I Take What I Want," originally recorded by Sam & Dave. It all adds up to what comes off as the soundtrack to an unpretentious blast of an all-night jam session. Read More
